TOPIC: Moving The Hand Of God (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 12 January 2019)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Matthew 8:5-13
Bible In One Year: Genesis 29-30; Matthew 9:1-17
MEMORY VERSE: “For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.” – Isaiah 66:2
Many believers keep wondering why some people get speedy attention from God while others struggle without anything to show for their efforts. This has made some people to think that it is human efforts or ability, without realising that God has a way of downplaying the wisdom of man. He has a way of using the things we count for foolishness to confound the wise. What about riches? All the cattle on the hills belong to Him. That was why He said, “For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word (Isaiah 66:2). It takes a man with the Holy Spirit to have a “contrite heart”. It seems that a number of us who are called Christians have unwittingly, substituted self-effort for the Holy Spirit. We seem to look to ourselves for answers, rather than sending our petitions to God through the prayer of faith with the help of the Holy Spirit.
In the Fire Scripture for today, we read this “When Jesus heard (the man), He marvelled and said to them that followed Him, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.” The reason for His being marvelled was that He saw what He expected to see in the life of His followers and those who claimed to know God in the life of someone who was seen as ungodly. You too can do what that centurion did by believing that He is able to do all things. After all, He is the God of all flesh who is not limited by anything.
Beloved, you can move the hand of God into working on your behalf if you activate your faith. God has deposited a measure of faith you need for exploits in you. It is this faith that draws your heart to God in salvation. God is waiting for us to put Him into action in our lives and any situation that confronts us. He expects us to call on Him, because He is ready to answer. Jesus commanded us to move God into action in Matthew 7:7-8. He stated categorically there that whoever asks, believing, shall receive, and those who trust in the Lord will never be put to shame. Jesus also commanded us to ask until our joy is full. Ask in faith and not wavering; He shall speedily answer: Therefore, have faith in God for all things are possible to him that believes.
IT TAKES A MAN WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND FAITH TO MOVE THE HAND OF GOD.
May your faith in God provoke the council of heaven into deciding quickly to intervene in your situation today.
- Holy Ghost fire, melt away every spiritual blindness in my life, in the name of Jesus.
- Holy Ghost, pump favour into my life, in the name of Jesus.
- Every dry bone in my spiritual life, receive the fire of the God of Elijah, in the name of Jesus.
- Faith that achieves the impossible, fall upon my life, in the name of Jesus.
- Every plantation of darkness blocking my spiritual pipe, Holy Ghost fire, flush it out, in the name of Jesus.
- My Father, my Father, my Father, let me experience the bulldozing power of the God of Elijah, in the name of Jesus.
- I receive fire power to tread upon serpents and scorpions and upon every power of the enemy, in the name of Jesus.
