MFM Daily Devotional 26 December 2021 | Mountain Top Life Outline
In all ages and generations, God looks for righteous men and women to serve Him. When God saw how great the wickedness of man was upon the surface of the earth and that his imagination was evil continually, He found Noah and used him as a vessel to propagate His word at that time. Noah had the spirit of watchfulness. He created time to tell people about the flood, but they were not watchful until the day when the rain began.
Are you still in the group of careless Christians that do not believe about the word of God and his prophets? Are you still procrastinating that you will do God’s bidding another time? God is merciful. The Bible says that His mercy endures forever. You have to be watchful so that the plan of God for your life will manifest. The ten virgins in the Parable of Ten Virgins belonged to two categories.
The first category comprised the wise virgins who were watchful. They prepared themselves for the bridegroom. When they were coming to the presence of the Lord, they brought with them extra oil. Oil illuminates, strengthens and anoints for greater power. They were watchful. They got prepared when the bridegroom entered; the extra oil gave them boldness to carry on. What are your preparations as a Christian? Are you watchful?
There are several things to be watchful for as an end time Christian. First, be watchful for temptation. In Matthew 26:41a, Jesus told his disciples in the Garden of Gethsemane, “Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation.” The second thing to be watchful for is the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Another thing believers should be watchful for is life of wisdom. Your life must be filled with the wisdom of God. I mean the wisdom from above not worldly wisdom. Whenever you apply divine wisdom people will testify that the Spirit of God dwells in you.
In your daily activities, you must be watchful. To be watchful is simply to look out for something, to watch our steps as we are walking, talking and most importantly to remember that we are in a battle. In 1 Peter 5:8, the Bible enjoins us to be sober and vigilant because our adversary, the devil, moves about roaring and seeking whom he may devour.
Be wise. Watch and pray! I pray the spirit of watchfulness will envelop your life, in Jesus’ name
If everybody loves you, something is wrong; find at least one enemy to keep you alert.
Any power waiting for your unguarded hour to destroy you shall be destroyed, in the name of Jesus.
HYMN: Lord, Thy word abideth
1. Lord, Thy word abideth,
And our footsteps guideth,
Who its truth believeth,
Light and joy receiveth.
2. When our foes are near us,
Then Thy word doth cheer us,
Word of consolation,
Message of salvation.
3. When the storms are o’er us,
And dark clouds before us,
Then its light directeth,
And our way protecteth.
4. Who can tell the pleasure,
Who recount the treasure,
By Thy word imparted
To the simple hearted?
5. Word of mercy, giving
Succour to the living;
Word of life, supplying
Comfort to the dying!
6. O that we, discerning
Its most holy learning,
Lord, may love and fear Thee,
Evermore be near Thee!
1. Power from on high, envelop my life, in the name of Jesus.
2. Powers waiting for my unguided hours to attack me, die, in the name of Jesus.
3. Lord Jesus, keep Your eyes on me, in the name of Jesus.
4. Because I dwell in the secret place of the most High, no evil shall befall me, in the name of Jesus.
5. The sun shall not smite me by day nor the moon by night, in the name of Jesus.
6. Lord Jesus, give me the grace to know You more, in the name of Jesus.
7. O Lord my Father, open my spiritual understanding, in the name of Jesus.
