BY DR. D.K OLUKOYA – GOD’S PICTURE OF THE CHRISTIAN HOME (II) TOPIC: GOD’S PICTURE OF THE CHRISTIAN HOME (II) (MOUNTAIN OF FIRE AND MIRACLE MINISTRIES, MFM DAILY DEVOTIONAL 24 FEBRUARY 2021) BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Numbers 3-4 FIRE SCRIPTURE: Proverbs 3:5-8 (KJV) 5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. 7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. 8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones. MEMORY VERSE: “In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” – Proverbs 3:6 MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:Just as you should not buy a house because of the painting, never marry a man because of handsomeness or a woman because of beauty. PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:THE AGENDA OF HEAVEN FOR YOUR MARITAL LIFE SHALL NOT FAIL, IN THE NAME OF JESUS. The MESSAGE: It is necessary to be guided by God in such an important issue of life as marriage (Proverbs 3:3-7; Jeremiah 10:23). There are conditions we must fulfil before God will guide us (Matthew 6:25-32; Psalms 66:18). You shall give full attention to the teaching of God’s word on how not to and how to find a help meet. Let us first examine the former. I call them carnal and destructive methods of choosing a partner. They include: walking by sight (Judges 14:13), carnal choice motivated by lust and sin, selection based on ungodly parental command, prayerless approach and tribal sentiment (Judges 21:16-20). Others in this category are fake prophets and prophecies, personal decision lacking divine approval and asking with an idol in your heart (Deuteronomy 7:14). Beloved, choosing a spouse the wrong way has several grave consequences. Let us examine some of them. First, the New Testament commands against unequal yoke. Who is an unbeliever? The prosperous man who is not born-again, the beautiful lady who is not Christlike, the well-behaved person who has not given his life to Jesus, the religious, dutiful, conscientious church-goer who has never truly repented, the “believer” who is not a new creature, the “convert” who is not free from sin, the “Pentecostal” who speaks in tongues but lacks divine love for God and brethren, the backslider who is no more in Christ. It is ungodly for any believer to elope with a woman or man, no matter the divergent and unyielding stance of the parents (Genesis 31:20-51). People in such a situation must pray and trust in the Lord, who gave the revelation of His will, to finish the work, for with God all things are possible. The church will not join a couple in marriage, where one of them had been married and the partner is alive (Matthew 19:4-6), the lady has not obtained the consent of her parents, the lady is already pregnant, the couple is unequally yoked — one of them is not born again or not a Christian at all. Leviticus 18:27 says that for all these abominations have the men of the land done which were before you, and the land is defiled. Beloved, I encourage you to trust God and acknowledge Him in all your ways. Your marital life will be a success story. PRAYER POINTS: MORNING 1. Holy Spirit, let my marital life be patterned after heaven’s agenda, in the name of Jesus Christ.2. My marriage shall not lead me to hell fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.3. By the blood of Jesus, I overturn every agenda of the enemy to destroy my marital life, in the name of Jesus Christ.EVENING 4. By the blood of Jesus, I break the yoke of ancestral evil power upon my marital life, in the name of Jesus Christ.5. Holy Spirit, ignite my marital prayer altar with Your fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.6. Holy Spirit, reveal the will of God to us in my home, in the name of Jesus Christ.7. My marriage shall not be wasted by the enemy, in the name of Jesus Christ.MOUNTAIN TOP LIFE is a daily devotional by Dr. D.K Olukoya (General Overseer, Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministries, Worldwide) Flatimes Notice Board: Until you are born again, God ever abiding presence will never be with you.
