MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 26 September 2018 By Dr. D.K Olukoya
TOPIC: Everything Happens For Good
(Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 26 September 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Romans 8:28-35
MEMORY VERSE: “In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:18
There was once a king who had a wise advisor. The advisor followed the king everywhere, and His favourite advice was “everything happens for good.” One day, the king went hunting and had a little accident. He shot an arrow at His own foot and was injured. He asked the advisor what he thought about the accident. The advisor replied in his usual upbeat manner: “Everything happens for good!” This time however, the king was really angry about his advisor’s seemingly trite comment and ordered that the advisor be put in prison, the king asked him again, “Now that you are in prison, what do you think?” and the advisor replied, “Everything happens for good”, so the advisor remained in prison.
The king later went on another hunting trip, this time without the advisor. During this expedition, some cannibals captured him in the forest and he was taken to the cannibals’ camp where he was to be killed and eaten as the evening meal. However, as was their custom, before roasting him in the cooking pot, he was thoroughly inspected. When they did this, the cannibals saw the wound on the King’s foot and decided to throw him back into the jungle. According to the cannibal’s tradition, they do not eat anything that was imperfect or with a defect. As a result of this, the king’s life was spared. After this incidence with the cannibals, the king suddenly realised that his advisor was right all along that everything happens for good and ordered him to be released. The advisor also escaped death because if he had not been in prison, he would have followed the king on that fateful hunting trip and would have probably have ended in the cannibal’s cooking pot.
Indeed, there is always a silver lining to every cloud of adversity. There is always a new strength to rise to after every fall. There is a lesson to learn in every mistake. There is always an experience to change your destiny positively from any affliction. There is a new glory from any trial and in any lost opportunity, there are open doors to breakthrough. So beloved, whatever is happening to you, never cease to give God praise, knowing that all things will work out for your good in the long run, to the glory of the Lord Jesus.
LIFE’S CHALLENGES ARE LESSONS TO POSITIVELY CHANGE OUR DESTINIES.
Whatever is happening to you now will work out for your good.
