Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 26 January 2023 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – When God Fights For You (I)
TOPIC: When God Fights For You (I) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 26 January 2023)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Exodus 26, Exodus 27, Exodus 28, John 8, John 9, John 10
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Exodus 14:1-16 (KJV)
1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Speak unto the children of Israel, that they turn and encamp before Pihahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, over against Baalzephon: before it shall ye encamp by the sea.
3 For Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, They are entangled in the land, the wilderness hath shut them in.
4 And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, that he shall follow after them; and I will be honoured upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host; that the Egyptians may know that I am the Lord. And they did so.
5 And it was told the king of Egypt that the people fled: and the heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was turned against the people, and they said, Why have we done this, that we have let Israel go from serving us?
6 And he made ready his chariot, and took his people with him:
7 And he took six hundred chosen chariots, and all the chariots of Egypt, and captains over every one of them.
8 And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued after the children of Israel: and the children of Israel went out with an high hand.
9 But the Egyptians pursued after them, all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, and his horsemen, and his army, and overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pihahiroth, before Baalzephon.
10 And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out unto the Lord.
11 And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt?
12 Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness.
13 And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.
14 The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.
15 And the Lord said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:
16 But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.
MEMORY VERSE: “The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.” – Exodus 14:14
The best thing to do when God steps in to fight for you and defend you is to stand still and hold your peace. Victory is sure.
PRAISE AND WORSHIP:
Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
THE LORD WILL CONTINUE TO BE YOUR REFUGE AND STRENGTH, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
MFM Devotional For Today 2023 MESSAGE:
The Lord is a Man of war. He fights battles the way no man can. He has different battle strategies that are beyond human knowledge and comprehension. His arsenal is full of various weapons to fight each battle accordingly. God never fights all battles the same way! The enemy is never a threat to Him.
Unfortunately, many Christians find it difficult to trust God when they are confronted with battles. Men easily trust in their own power as against God, forgetting that God is our present help in times of trouble. Some are carried away by the fear of the enemy or situation. The hymn writer wrote: “God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform…..” Our battles become a walkover when God fights for us. To continue in our own strength or strategy will amount to useless struggle. Declare this loud and clear: “O God, arise and fight for me, in the name of Jesus”.
From the beginning of the Bible to the end, God fights to defend His children and to make them victorious. He arose to fight for the Israelites against Pharaoh; king of Egypt, who stubbornly pursued them to the Red Sea, believing there was no escape for them. Physically, seeing the sea before them and the enemies. behind, they were scared to the point of losing faith and strength. But miraculously, God moved in His mysterious way. He gave His word of assurance to them through Moses, as stated in today’s memory verse. Truly, they held their peace in the face of this great obstacle and behold, the sea parted -into two. The Israelites went through to safety but the enemies perished in it. Beloved, God will do the same for you, if you would put your faith in Him
However, if you are not on the Lord’s side and doing His will, it will be difficult for Him to fight for you. Also, fear can become an obstacle to your victory. It could hinder the move of God’s power. God instructed Moses to warn the children of Israel not to be afraid. He is speaking to you today: Fear Not! The enemies you see now, you shall see them no more, in Jesus’ name.
- Father Lord, arise and fight my battles, in the name of Jesus.
- O Lord of Host, dispatch Your heavenly military squad to put my enemies to flight, in the name of Jesus.
- In a way beyond human knowledge, O God, arise and deal with my adversaries in an uncommon manner, in the name of Jesus.
- By the power that divided the Red Sea, O God, arise and let my enemies perish in the Red Sea of their own making, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, arise and burn the enemies’ chariots to ashes, in the name of Jesus.
- My enemies, dig your own pits and perish there, in the name of Jesus.
- This battle is the Lord’s. O God, arise and defend Your interest in my life, in the name of Jesus.
