MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 14 February 2021 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Glorifying God
TOPIC: Glorifying God (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 14 February 2021)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Leviticus 5-7
FIRE SCRIPTURE: John 15:1-8 (KJV)
1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
MEMORY VERSE: “If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” – 1 Peter 4:11
God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.
PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
TODAY, ANYTHING WORKING TO DESTROY GOD’S GLORY IN YOUR LIFE SHALL CATCH FIRE, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
A supreme duty of man is to glorify God. As a believer and child of the kingdom, you must ensure that every area of your life conforms to the will of God and brings glory to Him. The Psalmist enjoins believers to “Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty, give unto the LORD glory and strength. Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness” (Psalm 29:1-2).
How do you glorify God in your daily life? First, when you sing praise and worship songs to God, you bring glory to Him. In Psalm 22:23, the Bible says, “Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.” Praise and worship will also help you to stay connected to God. The second way you can glorify God in your daily life is by doing God’s work (serving God and others, sharing the gospel, etc). Matthew 5:16 says, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
Also, when you bear fruit in the Kingdom of God, you bring glory and honour to God. The Bible affirms this in John 15:8, “Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.” You are fruitful in the Lord when you are useful and productive in His work. Furthermore, you can bring glory to God by promoting spiritual unity and oneness. That is why the Bible provides this admonition, “Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you” (2 Corinthians 13:11).
Similarly, you can glorify God by your entire consecration. When you make yourself holy, dedicated and set apart unto God and His service, you become wholly consecrated to Him. 1 Corinthians 6:20 says “For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” Finally, you glorify God when you fulfil His purpose for your life. Apostle Paul said that he had fought the good fight, finished his course, kept the faith and a crown of righteousness awaits him (2 Timothy 4:7-8).
Beloved, everything about you should glorify God: your ministry, marriage, career, business, finances, and so on. That is the expectation of heaven concerning you. God will not share His glory with anyone. Receive the grace to honour Him with your life and all that concerns you!
- Father, I present my life to You as a living sacrifice, in the name of Jesus.
- My Father, I offer my life to You, use it for Your glory, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, give me the grace to bear much fruit for You, in the name of Jesus.
- Anything that wants to take the place of God in my life or share in His glory, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, I glorify You in my body, soul and spirit, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, I dedicate my life to Your service in honour of Your holy name, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, make me an ambassador of peace and unity in Your Kingdom, in the name of Jesus.
