TOPIC: Your Personal Score Sheet (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 17 August 2020)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Job 39-42
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Daniel 5:18-31 (KJV)
18 O thou king, the most high God gave Nebuchadnezzar thy father a kingdom, and majesty, and glory, and honour:
19 And for the majesty that he gave him, all people, nations, and languages, trembled and feared before him: whom he would he slew; and whom he would he kept alive; and whom he would he set up; and whom he would he put down.
20 But when his heart was lifted up, and his mind hardened in pride, he was deposed from his kingly throne, and they took his glory from him:
21 And he was driven from the sons of men; and his heart was made like the beasts, and his dwelling was with the wild asses: they fed him with grass like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven; till he knew that the most high God ruled in the kingdom of men, and that he appointeth over it whomsoever he will.
22 And thou his son, O Belshazzar, hast not humbled thine heart, though thou knewest all this;
23 But hast lifted up thyself against the Lord of heaven; and they have brought the vessels of his house before thee, and thou, and thy lords, thy wives, and thy concubines, have drunk wine in them; and thou hast praised the gods of silver, and gold, of brass, iron, wood, and stone, which see not, nor hear, nor know: and the God in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are all thy ways, hast thou not glorified:
24 Then was the part of the hand sent from him; and this writing was written.
25 And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN.
26 This is the interpretation of the thing: MENE; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it.
27 TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.
28 PERES; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.
29 Then commanded Belshazzar, and they clothed Daniel with scarlet, and put a chain of gold about his neck, and made a proclamation concerning him, that he should be the third ruler in the kingdom.
30 In that night was Belshazzar the king of the Chaldeans slain.
31 And Darius the Median took the kingdom, being about threescore and two years old.
MEMORY VERSE: “The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.” – Luke 12:23
A life that is without battles can only be found in the graveyard, but as long as you are alive, you will experience all kinds of battles.
PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
EVERY POWER THAT HAS BEEN ASSIGNED TO STEAL FROM YOU, I COMMAND THEM TO BE DISGRACED.
Your score sheet matters. This fact is brought to the fore in today’s devotional.
A man had a vision which revolutionized and revised his spiritual life. He had prayed many times asking for spiritual power. He did not see any change in his life. He bought books on how to work on the supernatural and found that it did not work. He bought and read books on “Power From On High.” He found that power did not come from anywhere. He tried fasting and prayer. But before he broke his fast, somebody would bring food for him to eat in the dream. This was how he was always breaking his fast in the dream.
One night in his room, he prayed and saw a vision of an angel of God who came to him and showed him his mark, as recorded in heaven. It was as follow: love: 2 per cent, patience: 1 per cent, gentleness: 10 per cent, faith: 5 per cent, self control: 3 per cent, evangelism: 0 per cent, useful praying: 10 per cent, holiness: 1 per cent, doubt: 30 per cent, love of praise: 70 per cent, pride: 60 per cent, useless praying: 90 per cent, anger: 90 per cent, bad thought: 80 per cent. It was seriously below standard. The angel that came to show him the paper looked at him, shook his head, folded the paper, threw it at him and went away in anger. What do you weigh in the balance of the Almighty?
God has no regard for persons. Obedience is better than being religious. The Lord is looking for vessels to fill and use. Many vessels have disappointed Him. He is looking for people who will become His battle axe. If you don’t have the joy of salvation, your balance may be reading zero. If you are not interested in soul-winning, your balance may be reading zero. If you have been avoiding paying your tithes or you have people you don’t greet or against whom you keep malice or you live a life of fornication, your balance may be reading zero. My prayer for you is that God will give you a vision of your standing before Him.
- By the power that sank Pharaoh, let my stubborn problems die, in the name of Jesus.
- By the power that disgraced Goliath, let my stubborn problems die, in the name of Jesus.
- Holy Ghost fire, arise, attack my mountain, in the name of Jesus.
- Every witchcraft incantation against my destiny, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Every trouble of the night, bow to the name of Jesus.
- Angels of God, scatter all those plotting against my destiny, in the name of Jesus.
- Every demonic dragon working against my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
