MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 4 August 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Operation Ziklag (II)
TOPIC: Operation Ziklag (II) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 4 August 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalm 66-67; Romans 7
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Samuel 30:17-20
MEMORY VERSE: “And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck.” – Genesis 27:40
There are two lessons to be learnt in the Ziklag debacle. The first is the providence of God. The providence of God is His “unseen” hand in all the events of life, assuring and achieving His purposes and promises through our actions. In the providence of God, the Amalekite raiders had attacked Ziklag. They not only plundered Ziklag, but also a number of other Philistine and Israelite cities. But with the help of God, David and his men not only obtained their own goods back, but also the goods of many others. The Bible records that David shared this spoil with a number of Israelite princes and towns, thus ingratiating them to himself. The Ziklag ‘loss’ thus became instrumental in causing David to return very quickly to the land of Judah, where he was eventually made the king of Judah. This goes to show that all things do truly work together for good, to those who love God, and to those who are the called according to His purpose.

The second lesson is the principle of Grace. This is a most important principle that forces us to renew our stand as members of the body of Christ. The victory David and his men won over the Amalekites was really God’s victory. Men played a part in it, but in the final analysis, it was God’s victory.
Beloved, whatever situation you are going through today, God knows. If you will only encourage yourself in Him, He will turn the situation and glorify Himself. If only you will trust completely in His strength, He will give you the grace to pursue, to overtake and to recover all. You will have the neck of your enemies, and you will divide their spoils.
THE ONLY LANGUAGE THE ENEMY UNDERSTANDS IS VIOLENCE.
Total recovery shall be your portion in this season, in the name of Jesus.
- I pursue, I overtake, and I recover all my stolen blessings, in the name of Jesus.
- Anything hindering me from greatness, give way now, in the name of Jesus.
- Total recovery will be my portion from now on, in the name of Jesus.
- I will not die a premature death, in the name of Jesus.
- I refuse to be a candidate of the tail, in the name of Jesus.
- O Lord my Father, arise in my situation today and give me a turnaround miracle, in the name of Jesus.
- Spirit of the Living God, establish me in righteousness, in the name of Jesus.
