MFM MOUNTAIN TOP LIFE DAILY DEVOTIONAL
MFM Daily Devotional 16th February 2023, Mountain Top Life Devotional, Thursday Message by Dr. D.K Olukoya, (General Overseer, Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministries Worldwide).
TOPIC: The Complete Armour of God (1)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR
Leviticus 19–20; Matthew 27:51–66
2 Timothy 2:3 – Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
It is spiritual disaster when a Christian engages in warfare against satan and his cohorts without the complete armour.
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY
The Lord will clothe you with His power and strength to fight and overcome all battles of life, in the Name of Jesus.
PRAISE AND WORSHIP:
Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit
10 To end my letter I tell you, be strong in the Lord and in his great power.
11 Wear the full armor of God. Wear God’s armor so that you can fight against the devil’s clever tricks.
12 Our fight is not against people on earth. We are fighting against the rulers and authorities and the powers of this world’s darkness. We are fighting against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenly places.
13 That is why you need to get God’s full armor. Then on the day of evil, you will be able to stand strong. And when you have finished the whole fight, you will still be standing.
14 So stand strong with the belt of truth tied around your waist, and on your chest wear the protection of right living.
15 On your feet wear the Good News of peace to help you stand strong.
16 And also use the shield of faith with which you can stop all the burning arrows that come from the Evil One.
17 Accept God’s salvation as your helmet. And take the sword of the Spirit—that sword is the teaching of God.
18 Pray in the Spirit at all times. Pray with all kinds of prayers, and ask for everything you need. To do this you must always be ready. Never give up. Always pray for all of God’s people.
MFM Daily Devotional 16th February 2023 MESSAGE
The Bible makes it clear in verse 12 of today’s Fire Scripture that we are on the battlefield as Christians: “For we wrestle not against flesh…..” More importantly, and on a serious note, our wrestling is not seen powers and entities, but against unseen spiritual powers. In all, we need to be battle ready, not just for a period, but at all times. Apostle Paul implored Timothy to “endure hardness as a soldier of Christ” as written in our memory verse.
We cannot afford to confront these enemies with ordinary physical strength. Rather, we should go in the might and power of the Most High God, if we must be victorious: “Finally be strong in the Lord….. put on the whole armour….so that you can stand against the wiles of the devil” (verses 11, 13). The Psalmist said, “Some trust in chariots, some in horses, but we trust in the Name of the Lord…. they fell, but we stand strong” (Psalm 20:7-8).
The physical military armour is that defensive outer covering worn to protect the body; and it is often made with metal to render the opponent’s bullets impenetrable. As Christians, we also have the spiritual armour, which is God’s, and every Christian soldier must endeavour to put it on without fail in order to fight and win these battles.
However, to put on this whole armour, it is important that one stands in righteousness before the Lord, and remain steadfast in faith. This armour is not comparable to that of warriors like Goliath and Saul, whose weight was too heavy for David, because it was man-made. Sadly enough, it could not even defend the owner (Goliath). Rather, he fell flat before David.
God expects us to be clothed in His armour and be ever ready for battle against the enemies of our souls and salvation.
Beloved, you need to know the components of this whole armour of God and put them on at all times. I pray that you shall not fall a victim in the battlefield of life, in the Name of Jesus.
