TOPIC: Confront And Conquer Your Past (II) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 2 April 2023)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Samuel 7, 2 Samuel 8, 2 Samuel 9, 1 John 3, 1 John 4

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Genesis 32:13-23 (KJV)

13 And he lodged there that same night; and took of that which came to his hand a present for Esau his brother;

14 Two hundred she goats, and twenty he goats, two hundred ewes, and twenty rams,

15 Thirty milch camels with their colts, forty kine, and ten bulls, twenty she asses, and ten foals.

16 And he delivered them into the hand of his servants, every drove by themselves; and said unto his servants, Pass over before me, and put a space betwixt drove and drove.

17 And he commanded the foremost, saying, When Esau my brother meeteth thee, and asketh thee, saying, Whose art thou? and whither goest thou? and whose are these before thee?

18 Then thou shalt say, They be thy servant Jacob’s; it is a present sent unto my lord Esau: and, behold, also he is behind us.

19 And so commanded he the second, and the third, and all that followed the droves, saying, On this manner shall ye speak unto Esau, when ye find him.

20 And say ye moreover, Behold, thy servant Jacob is behind us. For he said, I will appease him with the present that goeth before me, and afterward I will see his face; peradventure he will accept of me.

21 So went the present over before him: and himself lodged that night in the company.

22 And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, and his two womenservants, and his eleven sons, and passed over the ford Jabbok.

23 And he took them, and sent them over the brook, and sent over that he had.

On your own, you can do nothing. Only the power of God is able to deliver you from your past.

MFM Devotional For Today 2023 MESSAGE:

Yesterday, we learnt that Jacob was haunted by his past. He faced it and overcame. How?

In his usual manipulative acts and as the supplanter that he was, Jacob sent his servants with gifts to appease Esau. Imagine a twin brother who cheated on his other twin to the extent of robbing him of his birthright and fatherly blessing! Years later, he sought to buy him over again with mere gifts. A good strategist! He set the servants and gifts in three tiers to impress his brother. After all, Esau easily gave in to fantasies and baits in the past. Unfortunately, it was not business as usual! It didn’t work this time! Esau needed to see Jacob and not his gifts. For the first time, Jacob was afraid! He needed more than his schemes. He needed the power of God to break through and move forward. Without resolving issues here, there could be no further progress. Maybe that is where you are now. There is an opportunity for you to make amends and progress. Without this positive move, it would be difficult to cross over, just as it happened to Jacob.

Beloved, what are those secrets of the past that must be unveiled? What are those areas of your life that you must conquer? Jacob could no more hide from the consequences of his nefarious acts. He had to confront his past. Esau was that past. What is your own Esau? Prepare to get it sorted out and done with, so that you can enjoy the peace of God in all that you do.

How do you do all of these? So simple. Do a retrospect. Think and look back into those things you did wrong, or situations that you were involved in the past; the people you brought hurt to deliberately, all your ungodly scheming like Jacob. Did you cause harm to anyone and run away? To all these and many more, you have a case to answer, sins to forgive, reconciliation and restoration to do.

These are the loads of the past that you need to do away with so that you can move forward and enjoy God’s awesome presence and promises in your life. Jacob confronted and conquered his past when he encountered God at Jabbok. Pray for such an encounter!



  1. Past sins seeking to rob me of my peace of mind, lose your grip, in the name of Jesus.
  2. I cast away every human wisdom and receive godly wisdom to reconcile with my Esau, in the name of Jesus.
  3. Wherever I have messed up, Jesus clean me up with Your blood and align me with Your will, in the name of Jesus.


  1. Wherever I have hurt others in the past, O Lord, help me to make amends, in the name of Jesus.
  2. Father Lord, give me a humble heart to do the needful, in the name of Jesus.
  3. It is time to move forward. No negative issue of the past shall hinder me, in the name of Jesus.
  4. Every hindrance to my next level, be removed by fire, in the name of Jesus.
