Today’s Message MFM Daily Devotional 10 January 2020
God’s message to you for today’s devotional is that you must avoid whatever looks like an oversized burden. Our most difficult problem is facing ourselves. In 1999, one brother prayed and declared that a particular sister was his wife. So, he went to tell his pastor. The pastor invited both of them and said to the sister: “This brother had prayed and he said that you are his God’s chosen wife.”
Standing before the pastor, the lady looked at the brother from head to toe and said, “Sorry pastor, this one that is sitting down here cannot carry my load (meaning that having sized him up, she had come to the conclusion that the brother was not up to her standard and cannot take care of her needs).” The pastor said, “Which load is it that this person cannot help you to carry?” She said, “Pastor, that is my stand and it is final.” That was in year 2002. Do you know that up till now, the lady is still looking for somebody that ‘can carry that load’?
MFM Daily Devotional 10 January 2020
The flesh is harder to deal with than the devil. You cannot bind the flesh. So, the flesh is the harder problem; it needs to be crucified. Selfcentredness, lack of discipline, boasting and stubbornness are simply the flesh refusing to submit to the Holy Spirit. Many church goers are very stubborn.
A stubborn person will say, “I will do it in my own way,” whereas the Bible says, “If you walk with those who are walking on foot and you are weary, what will you do when you are asked to walk with horsemen?”
It is the “foot men” that are around now. But eventually, they will go and the horse riders will come in and things would get worse, because that is what the Bible says. Evil men shall wax stronger and stronger; and peace will disappear, unless we welcome into our lives the Prince of peace and the Lord of lords.
Unless you take a honest look at yourself, you may be guilty of creating for yourself an oversized burden.
Your dream is an instrument of promotion, prosperity and divine lifting.
The power of God shall increase your speed in the name of Jesus.
TOday’s Hymn – Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee
Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee, God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee, opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness; drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness, fill us with the light of day!
All Thy works with joy surround Thee, earth and heaven reflect Thy rays,
Stars and angels sing around Thee, center of unbroken praise.
Field and forest, vale and mountain, flowery meadow, flashing sea,
Singing bird and flowing fountain call us to rejoice in Thee.
Thou art giving and forgiving, ever blessing, ever blessed,
Wellspring of the joy of living, ocean depth of happy rest!
Thou our Father, Christ our Brother, all who live in love are Thine;
Teach us how to love each other, lift us to the joy divine.
Mortals, join the happy chorus, which the morning stars began;
Father love is reigning o’er us, brother love binds man to man.
Ever singing, march we onward, victors in the midst of strife,
Joyful music leads us Sunward in the triumph song of life.
