TOPIC: Dedicated To God (Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministries Thursday, 5 July 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Luke 2: 46-52
MEMORY VERSE: “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.” – Luke 2:52
When babes are born unto families, they bring a lot of joy to both parents and neighbours. On the day of their christening, people gather to celebrate with the parents and for the first time they learn the names of the babies. Also, on the 41st day, the babies are brought into the house of the Lord for dedication. What a glorious day it is for the church of God, parents and well-wishers. The man of God dedicates each baby unto the Lord, reads Psalm 19, prays and presents a Bible gift to each baby in the full view of the people of God. Thereafter, the choir sings the hallelujah anthem. What a glorious and happy event.
Jesus Christ who is our perfect example was also brought to the temple and dedicated to the Lord. He also came with His parents to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the Passover. One year, when Jesus was twelve years old, He came to the temple and sat with the doctors listening to them and asking them questions. When His father and mother found Him, He told them respectfully that he must be after his father’s business. The memory verse reveals that Jesus increased in wisdom and stature and in favour with God and man.
Growth reveals your real person. As men grow, they grow into someone. That great man of God was once an innocent baby, and that notorious robber was also once a sweet child to behold. The difference between the two lies in whom they were dedicated to on the day of birth. Everybody is growing day after day.
Some people grow to become a blessing to the world and others become terror, some into glory and others into shame.
The power to make anyone grow, increase in favour and fulfill destiny begins from the day of christening and whether the individual was dedicated to God. A baby can grow, increasing in wisdom and stature and receiving favour from God, only if he is dedicated to God. If you do not know to whom you were dedicated then ask your parents. Otherwise dedicate yourself anew to God. Your pastor can help you.
EVERYONE BORN INTO THIS WORLD IS DEDICATED TO SOMETHING, EITHER GOOD OR EVIL.
Power of evil dedication upon your life is broken today.
1. My Father, thank You for revealing deep and secret things unto me, in Jesus’ name.
2. Holy Ghost, reveal to me what happened on my day of christening, in Jesus’ name.
3. I dedicate myself to God, in the name of Jesus.
4. Battles from my childhood confronting my destiny, die, in the name of Jesus.
5. My foundation, receive fire, in the name of Jesus.
6. Anything evil I was fed with on my christening day, come out of my life and die, in Jesus’ name.
7. Holy Ghost fire, purge my life, in the name of Jesus.
