MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 6 November 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Sleeping On Duty
TOPIC: Sleeping On Duty (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 6 November 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Jeremiah 37-39; Hebrews 3
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 5:14-16
MEMORY VERSE: “But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.” – Matthew 13:25
Sleep is a sweet and desirous exercise for every human, especially after the daily activities. The Bible clearly states that God gives sweet sleep to His beloved; Psalm 127:2. Such sleep connotes a peaceful rest. Unfortunately, when a person sleeps in the wrong place, in spite of his need for rest, there is more danger than peace. Imagine a soldier sleeping on duty!
We are soldiers of Christ called to be alert and be watchful. It is nothing but spiritual indiscipline and imminent danger, when a soldier of Christ who is supposed to be battle-ready soldier is found sleeping at his duty post, instead of watching, praying, evangelizing, preaching or doing any kind of service for the Master. This is the unguarded hour in the life of a Christian! We must be very careful!
Sleeping at such moment implies many things ranging from spiritual lukewarmness, nonchalance, compromise or carelessness. Little wonder that the enemy gains entry into such a life so easily. To sow tares means to pollute a life, sow evil seeds that could bring misfortune, hardship, affliction and all such negative things into a person’s life. It implies a life whose very fabric has been tampered with and stained. It takes more efforts to uproot these tares than to plant good seeds. It could adversely affect the health of other plants. Why should a Christian be so careless? We ought to be more careful, and not caught unawares by the enemy of our soul!
We are charged to awake unto righteousness in Ephesians 5:14-16. This is a claron call to those in spiritual slumber. Stop being a spiritually dead Christian, awake unto the light of God. In Him is the light that gives life to all men (John 1:4). Let His light brighten the darkness around and within you. When you walk in His light, you will become wise and not simple (Psalm 119:130). You will be able to make use of every available opportunity to outsmart and overcome the antics of the enemy.
Remember, the Master is coming soon. The devil is never on vacation. Arise and be alert! Greater is the One in you than the one in the world! Awake, soldier of Christ; hear the battle cry, heed the call of your Captain, Onward Christian soldier…!
FREQUENCY IN PRAYER BY THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IS A GOOD PRESERVATIVE AGAINST THOUGHTS RUSHING IN. FLIES NEVER SETTLE ON THE BOILING POT.
You will not do the work of God deceitfully.
1 I will not sleep on duty, in the name of Jesus.
2 Heaven will not declare my position vacant, in the name of Jesus.
3 Power that wants to make me spiritually careless and unawake, die, in the name of Jesus.
4 Holy Ghost fire, baptise me and awaken me from slumber, in the name of Jesus.
5 Spirit and fire of spiritual fervency, fall upon me, in the name of Jesus.
6 I will not be caught unawares by the enemy, in the name of Jesus.
7 Any power sowing tares of slumber and discouragement in my life, die now, in the name of Jesus.
