Today’s Outline: MFM Daily Devotional Sunday 16th August 2020
There are deep food for thought in today’s devotional. You must examine yourself. One of our ministers prayed for a certain rich man who had a bad leg and the Lord healed him. Later, the rich man gave the minister a very nice brief case which he was carrying about proudly. One day, he offended the man who gave the bag to him.
As a result of this, the man began to speak against the pastor critically, he reported him to me. He said, “My wife used to prepare tea for this pastor. She used to do this and that for him. I used to carry him about in my car. He is an ungrateful person. I even gave him a costly brief case.” At a point the pastor said, “G.O., what can I do?” I said, “This is why I warn you, pastors running around rich people? You see yourself now. Prostrate and beg him.”
Thereafter, the pastor prostrated to him saying, “I am sorry sir.” And the man said,” That is all right. You can stand up.” This was a person who had no leg to walk and who could now walk as a result of God’s grace on him through the prayer of the pastor. God’s balance can weigh the paths and the ways of men. So it can weigh your path, the way you go, all the people you visit, the kind of relationship that you have with your fiancé, etc.
So, the balances of the Lord are very interesting. They are used by Him to weigh our actions. If your actions are put on His scale now, do you think you will be up to standard?
Today: MFM Daily Devotional Sunday 16th August 2020
Beloved, you are to note that the scarcity of the power of God in any generation is not the fault of God, but the non-availability of men and women that He can use. By the time God grabs a person and says, “I want to use this one,” He has already seen that it is the kind of person He can use. If God were to weigh your integrity as a Christian today will, you be up to the standard that He can use? This is the question that you are to ask yourself.
Today’s passage shows that God has a scale that weighs everything. What can your weight be on God’s scale?
Memory Verse: Luke 16:15 “And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.”
Motivational Quote: Anger is a temporary form of madness and anyone who goes to bed angry has the devil as a bedfellow.
Prophetic Word: Father, in the name of Jesus, beginning from today I shall no longer fail at the edge of breakthroughs. Any breakthroughs that is coming your way now you shall move into it.
HYMN: O God of Bethel
1. O God of Bethel, by whose hand
Thy people still are fed
Who through this weary pilgrimage
Hast all our fathers led
2. Our vows, our prayers we now present
Before Thy throne of grace
God of our fathers, be the God,
Of their succeeding race.
3. Through each perplexing path of life
Our wand’ring footsteps guide;
Give us, each day, our daily bread,
And raiment fit provide.
4. O spread thy covering wings around,
Till all our wand’rings cease,
And at our Father’s loved abode
Our soul arrive in peace
5. Such blessings from Thy gracious hand
Our humble prayers implore
And Thou shalt be our chosen God,
And portion evermore
