MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 11 December 2018 By Dr. D.K Olukoya
TOPIC: Lessons From the Life of Elijah (I)
(Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 11 December 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Kings 18:36-40
MEMORY VERSE: “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” –James 5:16
No man has ever accomplished anything great for God and sustained it without being a prayerful person. Elijah was a man of prayer. He had the lifestyle of being alone with God and enjoyed His presence. The reason his public ministry was full of results that glorified God was because he spent quality time in His presence and did only what He instructed him to do. He was a carrier of God’s presence, power and glory. Hence, he would say, “The LORD before whom I stand”.
Do you want to live a life worthy and pleasing to the Lord? You must be a prayer addict. Do you want to be a kingdom builder and God’s partner in the redemption project? You must be a prayer addict and the fire on your prayer altar must not go out. Do you want to fulfill the Great Commission and your personal ministry? Do you want to make great impact in your generation as a believer? You must love God’s presence and fellowship with Him day and night. That was the secret of Elijah’s exploit. It explains why he was unstoppable, unbeatable and indomitable. It also explains why he was a one man riot squad who challenged, confronted and defeated the prophets of Baal. Prayerful lifestyle was the reason he could turn the hearts of Israel back to God.
Beloved, your life is a project and the success you make of it depends on how well and often you travail in prayer to draw help, power and grace from heaven. Prayer warriors are God’s battle axes and weapons of war. They are God’s partners, change agents and game changers. Whatever assignment you have in your ministry, career, marriage, finances or any other area of life, consistent, effectual fervent prayer will bring down God’s power and glory that will make you a phenomenal success. Elijah’s life and achievements are eloquent testimonies to this truth. You have a master key called prayer. Use it to your advantage!
THE FIRE TO CHANGE THE WORLD IS AVAILABLE IN THE UPPER ROOM –THE PLACE OF HIS PRESENCE.
The Lord will make you a mysterious wonder.
O God of Elijah, make me a carrier of Your presence, power and glory, in the name of Jesus.
My Father, use me to win nations for You as You used Elijah to win Israel back to You, in Jesus’ name.
O Lord, make me a prayer warrior, weapon of war and battle axe, like Elijah, in the name of Jesus.
Father, make my life as fruitful as Elijah’s life was for You, in Jesus’ name.
The anointing to fulfil my ministry, fall upon me, in Jesus’ name.
Father, help me to maintain an unbroken focus towards my purpose, in Jesus’ name.
I shall reach my goal, in the name of Jesus.
