MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 4 November 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Trusting God Or Man
TOPIC: Trusting God Or Man (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 4 November 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Jeremiah 32-33; Hebrews 1
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Jeremiah 17:5-8
MEMORY VERSE: “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” – Isaiah 26:3
Trust is the bedrock of all relationships, be it divine or human. God is the author and pioneer of all good relationships. God started it with Adam and Eve. Though they betrayed, God planned our redemption through Jesus Christ our Saviour. We have been reconciled to Him and He desires absolute trust from us. This is where our faith and hope come to play. Afterall, you can’t place your faith on someone you never trusted. Neither can you hope for a thing from someone who is not faithful to you. Take a cue from our human relationships, once there is no trust, a vacuum is created, suspicion and all such become the order of the day. The relationship risks breaking up!
This is just a miniature of our trust in our Lord and God. God is absolutely faithful. He expects the same from us, and the benefits are enduring and unending. But woe befalls a man that puts his trust in a fellow man. He is quickly disappointed and frustrated. What can a human in flesh and blood do, far above Him who is perfect at doing hard things and making impossible things possible by His power and might? He is the Almighty!
Remember the three Hebrew boys in Daniel chapter 6, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego! They chose to trust in God and not in man who can kill but cannot make alive. The result is mind blowing! The fire that could not have any effect on them was the same that burnt their adversaries to ashes.
Although God may sometimes decide to be silent as He was in the case of these young men, don’t be afraid. He is busy working out your deliverance, your promotion, your healing, even your prosperity, in Jesus’ name. The same goes for Daniel when he was thrown into the lion’s den. The same God who kept silent at the time of the three Hebrew boys was still in action. He waited to prove His power to deliver to the uttermost. Even when all human hope is lost, God is still at work. He will do the same for you if you would believe and trust Him absolutely.
Are you ready to lay all your fears, worries and anxieties at His feet? Are you ready to stop fretting and start resting in His peace alone? When you put all in His care, you can be sure you’re safe in His hands and even your future is secure in Him. Just trust Him and trust Him absolutely!
THOSE THAT TRUST IN THE LORD ARE LIKE MOUNT ZION, WHICH CANNOT BE REMOVED, BUT ABIDES FOR EVER.
In the hollow of God’s hands, you are safe, no evil will betide you.
