MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 7 May 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Divine Like Father Like Son
TOPIC: Divine Like Father Like Son (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 7 May 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Kings 1-3; Luke 24:1-35
FIRE SCRIPTURE: John 1:1-12
MEMORY VERSE: “And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.” – Luke 11:2
Every second that I live, I am grateful to God that I am a human being, created in God’s image. What about you? If you are not as grateful as you should be, it may be because you do not know what it is to be made in God’s image. God created so many great things: the strong lion, the wise eagle, the loyal dog, the tree that lives for hundreds of years, the beautiful diamond and all those other wonderful qualities of other creatures. Yet you and I were the ones fearfully and wonderfully created in God’s image.
What are the implications of being created in God’s image?
1 To be God’s representative on earth, taking dominion over these strong, wise, loyal, long living, beautiful occupants of the earth (Genesis 1:28), just as God has dominion over His entire creation. Jesus says: let the kingdom of God come on earth and the will of God be done (Matthew 6:9-10).
2 To live in loving, cordial and cooperative relationships with God (as His child) and with fellow men (as kinsmen) just like the Trinity agreed in Genesis 1:26. Jesus says man must love God AND his fellow man, no matter their age, skin colour, tribe or race, financial or social status, religion, physical or mental state (Luke 10:17).
3 To work and subdue the earth, making it increase and yield its fruit (Genesis 2:8) from generation to generation.
4 To resist the devil and the host of his chaotic world of darkness on the earth and its occupants.
Have you noticed that when man is out of tune with God, famines, natural disasters (Deuteronomy 28:15-23), hunger, disease, wars become the order of the day?
Try to link what happened in Genesis 1:1-31 with the teachings and assertions of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ when He came to this world many centuries later and you will be surprised at the correlation! Jesus came to restore Genesis 1 Verse 31: God checked and saw that everything He created was perfect.
Jesus came to this world to reverse the curse that the disobedience of man brought and restore men as children of God. If He suffered so much and even died to make this a reality, He expects us to resemble our Father in every way and to bring up children who will continue the Divine Lineage on earth.
HEAVEN WILL SMILE ON YOU TODAY.
Do not despise the discipline of God because He wants you to be the best.
- My Father and my God, I thank You that I am fearfully and wonderfully made in Your image, in the name of Jesus.
- Merciful God, empower me to love You with all that I am and to reap the fruits of salvation, in the name of Jesus.
- By the power in the blood of Jesus, I kill every evil inheritance that will rob me of my divine inheritance, in the name of Jesus.
- I receive power to submit totally to God, resist the devil and put him to flight, in the name of Jesus.
- Almighty God, let Your will be done in my destiny, my work, my home and every area of my life, in the name of Jesus.
- Our no-nonsense God, empower me in obedience to Your word, to love my fellow men, no matter our differences, in the name of Jesus.
- I shall not miss heaven, in the name of Jesus.
