MFM Daily Devotional 31st July 2020 – The Price of Ignorance by Pastor D. K. Olukoya
TODAY’S TOPIC: THE PRICE OF IGNORANCE
Fire Scripture: Prov. 29:18; 1Sam. 3:1-7
Today’s Outline: MFM Daily Devotional 31st July 2020
Ignorance is costly. It has a blinding effect. A lot of people have paid dearly for ignorance. As a student in England, I shared a room with three other students and we had to share, among ourselves, household chores. One of us would go to the market to buy foodstuff, another person would prepare the meal, while the third person would dish it out, set the table and wash up afterwards.
One day, things were bought and I was to prepare the stew and I did it very well. The second person was to prepare the “eba” (paste made from cassava) and I noticed that he did not know how to prepare it. He poured the processed cassava (gari) in a bowl and was pouring hot water on it when I came to his rescue.
This was a learned medical doctor, who was pampered at home but who did not know how to do anything, not even a simple cassava paste. Many believers are like that. They want people to do everything for them.
MFM Daily Devotional 31st July 2020 by Pastor D. K. Olukoya
Some marriages have problems, because the husbands expect their wives to do everything like a slave. Some wives are lazy and pampered and so leave everything to their housemaids to do. They are so lazy that they are unable to wash their own under-wears themselves and so leave them for their housemaids to do the washing.
That was how a demonic housemaid had the opportunity to take the under-wears of her master and mistress to her witchcraft meeting. From that, trouble started in their home. The husband started having strange women outside and sometimes making amorous advances to the housemaid.
There have been cases of housemaids taking over homes like that. Believers who have no vision have lost so much in life. You must keep your vision alive.
Memory Verse: James 1:25“But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.”
Motivational Quote: Heaven shall thunder with aggression and put a stop to every setback that has caused you shame and ridicule.
Prophetic Word: Every power that has kept anyone here in bondage, let that rope be broken now in the name of Jesus.
HYMN: MFM DAILY DEVOTIONAL 31ST JULY 2020 BY PASTOR D. K. OLUKOYA
Abide with me; fast falls the eventide
Verse 1. Abide with me, fast falls the eventide,
The darkness deepens, Lord, with me abide;
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me!
Verse 2. Swift to its close ebbs out life?s little day,
Earth?s joys grow dim, its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all around I see
O Thou who changest not, abide with me!
Verse 3. I need Thy presence every passing hour,
What but Thy grace can foil the tempters power?
Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, Lord abide with me!
Verse 4. I fear no foe with Thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness,
Where is death’s sting?
Where, grave thy victory?
I triumph still, if Thou abide with me.
Verse 5. Come not in terror, as the King of Kings,
But kind and good with healing in Thy wings;
Tears for all woes, a heart for every plea;
Come, friend of sinners, thus abide with me.
Verse 6. Hold Thou Thy word before my closing eyes,
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies;
Heaven?s morning breaks and earth?s
vain shadows flee
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me!
– Henry F. Lyte
