TOPIC: Confront And Conquer (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 8 July 2020)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalms 66-69
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Kings 22:21-39 (KJV)
21 And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade him.
22 And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so.
23 Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee.
24 But Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah went near, and smote Micaiah on the cheek, and said, Which way went the Spirit of the LORD from me to speak unto thee?
25 And Micaiah said, Behold, thou shalt see in that day, when thou shalt go into an inner chamber to hide thyself.
26 And the king of Israel said, Take Micaiah, and carry him back unto Amon the governor of the city, and to Joash the king’s son;
27 And say, Thus saith the king, Put this fellow in the prison, and feed him with bread of affliction and with water of affliction, until I come in peace.
28 And Micaiah said, If thou return at all in peace, the LORD hath not spoken by me. And he said, Hearken, O people, every one of you.
29 So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah went up to Ramothgilead.
30 And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, I will disguise myself, and enter into the battle; but put thou on thy robes. And the king of Israel disguised himself, and went into the battle.
31 But the king of Syria commanded his thirty and two captains that had rule over his chariots, saying, Fight neither with small nor great, save only with the king of Israel.
32 And it came to pass, when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat, that they said, Surely it is the king of Israel. And they turned aside to fight against him: and Jehoshaphat cried out.
33 And it came to pass, when the captains of the chariots perceived that it was not the king of Israel, that they turned back from pursuing him.
34 And a certain man drew a bow at a venture, and smote the king of Israel between the joints of the harness: wherefore he said unto the driver of his chariot, Turn thine hand, and carry me out of the host; for I am wounded.
35 And the battle increased that day: and the king was stayed up in his chariot against the Syrians, and died at even: and the blood ran out of the wound into the midst of the chariot.
36 And there went a proclamation throughout the host about the going down of the sun, saying, Every man to his city, and every man to his own country.
37 So the king died, and was brought to Samaria; and they buried the king in Samaria.
38 And one washed the chariot in the pool of Samaria; and the dogs licked up his blood; and they washed his armour; according unto the word of the LORD which he spake.
39 Now the rest of the acts of Ahab, and all that he did, and the ivory house which he made, and all the cities that he built, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
MEMORY VERSE: “And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;” – Luke 18:1
Satan calls you when you are idle, God calls you when you are busy. Ensure that you are very busy for the Lord during your waiting time.
PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
ANY POWER THAT DOES NOT WANT THINGS TO GO WELL, THEY SHALL BE DISGRACED, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
In today’s devotional, we shall take a look at what is meant, when God is referred to as the God of Elijah. In your daily walk with God, you need to know the power and the glory of the God of Elijah. When you understand what the God of Elijah can do, the battles of life will no longer constitute threat to you. The God who answers by fire will empower you to win any battle that is coming from the quarters of stubborn demonic powers.

There was a riot somewhere and some people went to attack a child of God. They surrounded where she was. She looked at them through the window and said “Go away from here. If you don’t go away, I shall not hesitate to call on the God of Elijah against you.” They did not respond. Then, the lady started violent prayers. It was the team’s leader that first of all somersaulted and started complaining in a loud voice about some discomfort in his stomach. And so, the others ran away.
When your enemies does not want to leave you and vow that they will not rest until they take your blood, then use your most potent weapon: fire prayers of the God of Elijah.
Qualifications of those who can pray violent prayers:
- People who have surrendered their lives to Jesus.
- Those who have repented from all known sins.
- Those who are living holy lives.
- Those who are desperate for a change; those desperate for transformation.
- Those who are not ready to give up, i.e., persistent people.
Today, you can invoke the power of the God who answers by fire. Pray until the God of Elijah manifests Himself powerfully in your situations.
- O God arise, let evil altars scatter, in the name of Jesus.
- I remove the portion of the serpent from my own life, in the name of Jesus.
- I rebuke every evil linkage with my life with any evil, in the name of Jesus.
- Thou power of the night fashioned against me, be disgraced, in the name of Jesus.
- Let the rod of the wrath of the Lord, come upon every enemy of my _ _ _, in the name of Jesus.
- Let the angels of God invade them and lead them into darkness, in the name of Jesus.
- Anything glorifying satan in my life, fall down and die, in the name of Jesus.
