Fire Scripture: Daniel 1:3-20
MFM DAILY DEVOTIONAL 13 MAY 2021 TODAY MESSAGE OUTLINE
In our last study, we examined the life of Daniel based on self-discipline and perseverance. These qualities went a long way in assisting him to achieve great success both in human government and the divine agenda. Today’s study will focus on his relationship with God, the outcome and further lessons for us as children of God. The Bible affirms in the sixth chapter of Daniel that part of his daily routine was to kneel towards Jerusalem from his window and pray to God three times a day.
Of course, this became the reason he was thrown into the lion’s den. Everything in Daniel’s life revolved around God. Christians today can learn from this example. Many have heard the analogy of a wheel on a bike. The case for far too many Christians is that instead of being the central part that all the spokes revolve around, God is merely another spoke. He’s merely a part of our lives. This was not the case with Daniel, nor should it be the case with us in our Christian walks today.
God should be the fundamental, most important part of our lives, with everything else revolving around Him. Unfortunately it is easy for God not to be in the forefront of our minds most of the day. Sometimes, He simply enters our thoughts every now and then when we pray before a meal or when we sit through a Bible class. This is not the way we should treat someone whose incredible grace saved us. We are supposed to love God with ALL of our hearts, souls, and minds.
Don’t push God back to just being a part of your life. As shown in the life of Daniel, He needs to be the central part of your life that everything else revolves around.
Memory Verse: I Timothy 4:12 – “Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”
Motivational Quote: Don’t push God back to just being a part of your life. He needs to be the central part of your life that everything else revolves around.
Prophetic Word: Any spell or enchantment that is destroying your glory shall die, in the name of Jesus.
HYMN: I want to be like Jesus, my Lord
1. More about Jesus would I know,
More of His grace to others show,
More of His saving fullness see,
More of His love who died for me.
More, more about Jesus,
More, more about Jesus;
More of His saving fullness see,
More of His love who died for me! O to be like Thee, Blessed Redeemer, I want to be like Jesus, my Lord.
2. More about Jesus let me learn,
More of His holy will discern;
Spirit of God, my teacher be,
Showing the things of Christ to me.
3. More about Jesus; in His Word,
Holding communion with my Lord,
Hearing His voice in ev’ry line,
Making each faithful saying mine.
4. More about Jesus on His throne,
Riches in glory all His own,
More of His kingdom’s sure increase,
More of His coming Prince of Peace.
1. O Lord, help me to walk close to You, in the name of Jesus.
2. O Lord, remove worldliness from my heart, in the name of Jesus.
3. Father, give me the grace and the power to have positive influence on this generation, in the name of Jesus.
4. Father, make me a perfect example of a believer in word and deed, in the name of Jesus.
5. Father, henceforth, I give You a permanent place of pre-eminence in my life, in the name of Jesus.
6. Fire of the Holy Spirit, purge my heart of every idol, in the name of Jesus.
7. My Father, give me the grace to see You more clearly, love You more dearly and follow more nearly, day by day, in the name of Jesus.
