Mountain Top Life Devotional 28 April 2021 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Help In Discouraging Circumstances

TOPIC: Help In Discouraging Circumstances (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 28 April 2021)


BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalm 102-104


FIRE SCRIPTURE: Luke 5:16-26


16 And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.


17 And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them.


18 And, behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsy: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him.


19 And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, and let him down through the tiling with his couch into the midst before Jesus.


20 And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.


21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?


22 But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answering said unto them, What reason ye in your hearts?


23 Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk?


24 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon earth to forgive sins, (he said unto the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house.


25 And immediately he rose up before them, and took up that whereon he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying God.


26 And they were all amazed, and they glorified God, and were filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things to day.


MEMORY VERSE: “And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.” – Luke 8:48


MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:

If it is like you are losing everything, remember that trees lose their leaves and they still stand tall and wait for better days to come.


PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit


PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:

WHAT IS HAPPENING AROUND YOU AND INSIDE YOU WILL BE CONVERTED TO TESTIMONIES, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.


MOUNTAIN TOP LIFE MESSAGE:

Our Fire Scripture for today centres on a story about a paralyzed man and his friends who brought him to Jesus. A crowd had gathered around Jesus and it was difficult to walk through the vast number of people who were all pushing forward to see Him. It was so difficult and discouraging for his friends to move through a crowded street, let alone carry a bed along with them. When these friends found it difficult to get through, they tried something unusual. They couldn’t enter the house where Jesus was, hence they removed the roof. One interesting thing about this story is the extra mile the men went for their friend. I pray that your divine helpers will go the extra mile to help and bless you. No matter the hurdle in the way, they will scale it and deliver the blessings of heaven to you, in the name of Jesus.

These men found their way to get to the top of the house. They removed the tiles and timbers that supported the roof. Then, they safely lowered their sick friend on the ground.


The paralyzed man relied on the assistance of others to get to his destination. This man might have been worried or even afraid. Have you ever been worried or concerned about something that is happening to you or how you can get to your destination? Have you ever been anxious about your future? Our Lord Jesus Christ sensed the worry of this man who wanted to be healed. Jesus gave him a bit of encouragement. He said, “Take heart my son” (Matthew 9:2).


No matter your circumstances, there is always a way out. Despite the trouble the friends went through, they found a way for the paralyzed man to be healed. Even if your situation is hopeless today, God shall raise a helper and make a way for you.


Jesus used the situation to demonstrate His power to the crowd. Your stubborn situation shall become testimonies, in the name of Jesus. Your sins shall be forgiven. Jesus forgave the man. In the Old Testament, Moses spoke directly to God and Aaron was the first high Priest. Both of them couldn’t forgive sin nor work miracles. Jesus told the man with authority, “Pick up thy bed and go home.” The man sang a new song. I decree you shall sing a new song this season. Don’t be discouraged; God is by your side.


PRAYER POINTS:


MORNING


I dismiss and disband from my heart, every thought, image or picture of failure on my matter, in the name of Jesus.

I reject every spirit of doubt, fear and discouragement, in the name of Jesus.

My Father, intervene and turn discouraging circumstances to testimonies for me, in the name of Jesus.

EVENING


Let the angels of the Living God roll away every stone of hindrance to the manifestation of my breakthrough, in the name of Jesus.

O Lord, hasten Your word to perform Your miracles in every department of my life, in the name of Jesus.

The Lord who answers by fire and the God of Elijah, answer me by fire, in the name of Jesus.

I shall not be discouraged, whether my enemies like it or not, in the name of Jesus.
