Today Topic: ‘Consequences of Indiscipline‘ (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional) 20 March 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Joshua 4-6; Luke 1:1-20
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Corinthians 10:1-11
MEMORY VERSE: “Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.” – 1 Corinthians 10:12
It is not out of place to state that denial of the Lord in the face of temptations, as seen with Peter in Matthew 26:69-75, is indiscipline. If Peter had disciplined himself after Jesus had predicted he would deny Him thrice and prayed, he might have been saved from shame and agony.
To be gluttonous is indiscipline too. A Christian who attends a social function and eats and drink everything served is not disciplined. There is a story of a Christian heading a manufacturing company. He was so disciplined that he does not eat outside, be it at a social function or in a friend’s house. What he always asked for was table water. At a time, there was an end of the year party in his company where he was supposed to eat and merry with everybody. When it was time to start eating “oga patapata” asked that his food be packed in a container and given to his driver to be delivered at home. Others ate theirs there. However, because the man always disciplined himself by fasting and was always careful, he asked that the food be given to his dog at home because his wife and children were abroad. The following day when he got back to work, all the workers that ate the food (fried rice) were all admitted in the hospital for food poisoning. Only the man was saved.
What happened was that the rice prepared by the caterer was mistakenly left somewhere where some rat poison found its way into the food. The following morning which was the party day, the caterer just warmed the food, took some to the party and served the guests.
If not for the Christian discipline which was the man’s way of life, he too would have been one of the victims of food poisoning. Beloved, heed the Bible’s command to watch and pray as well as to be sober and vigilant!
YOUR BODY IS THE TEMPLE OF GOD; LET IT GLORIFY GOD ALWAYS.
Gluttony will not abort your destiny.
Father Lord, make me a prayer addict, in the name of Jesus.
Every temptation in my way, be uprooted, in the name of Jesus.
I will not eat at the table of my enemies, in the name of Jesus.
Every night caterer hunting for my life, somersault and perish, in the name of Jesus.
I will have the last laugh over my enemies, in the name of Jesus.
Father Lord, make me a good example unto others, in the name of Jesus.
Every evil spirit disguising as a helper, be destroyed by the fire of the Holy Ghost, in the name of Jesus.
