MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 3 November 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Forgetful Hearers
TOPIC: Forgetful Hearers (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 3 November 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Jeremiah 30-31; Philemon
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Matthew 7:24-27
MEMORY VERSE: “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” – James 1:22
The Bible is so much concerned about us doing what the word of God says. This is because if we only hear what the word of God says and do not do it, it will not add value to our lives. Jesus in one of His parables likened the hearer and doer of the word of God to the wise man, while the forgetful hearer is compared to the fool. The wise man built his house on a solid foundation, which is Christ, and when the troubles of life came, as fierce the storms of life were, the house could not be brought down.
But the fool was not so. He built his house on the sand which was too light and could not sustain the rains, the storms which are the troubles and issues of life. Consequently, the fall of this house was great.
In reality, the house is the life of man. The solid foundation is Christ, and the sandy foundation represents the vanities of this world. On which of these are you building your life? Do you allow the word of God to minister life to you? Or do you listen with one ear and allow it to go through another? Are you like those that hear the Word of God but it takes no root in their lives? Do you ever wait to weigh your life in the scale of God’s word? Does the Word become a living organism in you, even the Bread of life to feed upon and grow thereby?
God desires that you make room for the word to grow in you. That is when you do not stop at hearing, but should continue to do according to all that you have heard. It is in doing the word that you receive the blessings that come with it (Joshua 1:8). Blessings indeed!
Jesus showed us good example of what we should do, as recorded in Acts 1:1, “Of all that Jesus began to do and to teach…” He also demonstrated undiluted obedience by doing the command of His Father and went on to teach people to do the same. We have no better example to follow but the footsteps of Jesus!
The forgetful hearer is nothing but self-deceiver and a careless Christian who is wallowing in his own foolishness. He cannot enjoy the liberty that comes with that package of divine blessings because he is disobedient to the word and does not do the will of God.
Do you want to enjoy the fullness of God’s blessings? Get ready to hear the word and heed the word. Let your delight be in His word, to do according to what it says. (Psalm 1:1-3)
A FOOL TAKES NO PLEASURE IN UNDERSTANDING, BUT ONLY IN EXPRESSING HIS OPINION.
May you not be a spiritual fool.
