TOPIC: Are You Tried And Tested? (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 7 August 2020)


FIRE SCRIPTURE: Revelation 3:8-20 (KJV)

8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

MEMORY VERSE: “Ephraim shall say, What have I to do any more with idols? I have heard him, and observed him: I am like a green fir tree. From me is thy fruit found.” – Hosea 14:8

Whenever God speaks, He loads His words with power, decks it with honour and dignity and garnishes it with flavours that will keep you asking for more.

PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit



What I want us to consider today is the fact that life is a school and that we write examinations from time to time. We all go through tests. Problems and challenges are compulsory examinations that we must write.

There was a time that I had something to do and I employed three carpenters. I told myself that I was going to give them a test to see who would eventually do the work, I asked them how much they needed to do the work. The first one said, ₦2,500.00; the second one said ₦2,500.00; and the third one, ₦2,400.00. So I gave each of them ₦3,000.00. I wanted to know the honest one. Of course, two just said, “Thank you sir” and went away and never returned my balance.

Only one of them came back and said, “Sorry sir, there was a mistake, the money was supposed to be ₦2,500.00, but there was an extra ₦500.00; so I have brought the excess back.” I decided that he would be the permanent worker. The others kept quite and later started complaining that the one to whom I was giving jobs, was not good and that he was bad; he was this and that, whereas, they were the bad, unfaithful and undependable workers. In fact, they were thieves.

So, sometimes when you think you are being clever, you cannot be smarter than the devil. Are you the kind of person who borrows from people and decides not to pay back? Some people keep their money in the bank. At times, with ₦40,000.00 in their bank accounts, they would be looking for somebody who would lend them ₦5,000.00. This is simply madness, because money has become an idol for such people. They are the money minded believers who would say: “I want to keep it there to yield interest.” Which interest? When the Bible says, “Owe no man.” Are you tried and tested? You must acquire gold that has been tried in the fire!



  1. Every wicked plantation in the garden of my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
  2. Every evil association working against me, O Lord, thunder upon them, in the name of Jesus.
  3. I go from strength to strength by the power in the blood of Jesus.


  1. Every evil power summoning my spirit, die, in the name of Jesus.
  2. Every root of witchcraft in my family line, die, in the name of Jesus.
  3. Every communal bondage limiting my breakthroughs, die, in the name of Jesus.
  4. Every spell and enchantment, clear off, in the name of Jesus.
