TOPIC: From Jacob To Israel (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 21 June 2024)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalm 39, Psalms 40, Psalms 41, 1 Corinthians 2, 1 Corinthians 3

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Genesis 32:22-32 (KJV)

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.

24 And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.

25 And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob’s thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him.

26 And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.

27 And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.

28 And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.

29 And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy name. And he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name? And he blessed him there.

30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.

31 And as he passed over Penuel the sun rose upon him, and he halted upon his thigh.

32 Therefore the children of Israel eat not of the sinew which shrank, which is upon the hollow of the thigh, unto this day: because he touched the hollow of Jacob’s thigh in the sinew that shrank.

MEMORY VERSE: “And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.” – Genesis 32:28 (KJV)

True prayer is neither a mere mental exercise nor a vocal performance. It is far deeper than that – it is a spiritual transaction with the Creator of Heaven and Earth.”

Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit.


MFM Devotional For Today 2023 MESSAGE:

Jacob wrestled with the angel until he got the blessing he wanted. Yes he was rich at the time, but there was something that was still lacking. He didn’t just sit expecting a change to come, He got into action and wrestled not with a man but an angel.

He was determined and nothing was going to stop him. The Bible says that when the angel saw that he was not ready to let him go, he touched the hollow of this tigh. What situation or challenge are you faced with that seems to be a threat to you? You have to be violent about it in the place of prayer. From the days of John the Baptist, the kingdom of God suffers violence and the violent takes it by force. The Bible states that the fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Everything and anything can be settled in the place of prayer. It means you bring everything in your life under the subjection of God through prayer.

Jacob means supplanter (deciever). It was a bad identity he had carried around for years, but one night of wrestling brought about the change of name (destiny). Your spiritual identity may be worse. May be people equate you with failure, bad luck and poverty. I would like to let you know that you can wrestle your way into a change of identity. The same way Jacob’s curse was turned to blessing and he moved from being Jacob to Israel through the power of prayer, today, God will turn your destiny around for good, in Jesus’ name. The Bible says that Jabez, in his precarious condition, cried to the God of Israel and he got a brand new destiny and identity. Today, the same wonder-working God who knows no impossibility will change your story for good, in Jesus’ name.



  1. O God, help me to have a fireful prayer life, in the name of Jesus.
  2. O God, give me the spirit of grace and supplication, in the name of Jesus.
  3. I will continue to wrestle until I get what I want from the Lord, in the name of Jesus.


  1. O Lord, I refuse to be weary in the place of prayer, in the name of Jesus.
  2. Fresh fire for midnight prayers fall upon me, in the name of Jesus.
  3. O Lord, erase my unproductive identity, in the name of Jesus.
  4. O Lord, give me a new name that brings about a positive change in my life, in the name of Jesus.
