Mountain Top Life MFM Daily Devotional 17 August 2021 Message Written By Dr D.K Olukoya (Mountain Of Fire & Miracles) With Prayer Points

TOPIC: The Test of Faith (2)

FIRE SCRIPTURE
Joshua 6:1-5

1 Now Jericho was securely shut up because of the children of Israel; none went out, and none came in.

2 And the Lord said to Joshua: “See! I have given Jericho into your hand, its king, and the mighty men of valour.

3 You shall march around the city, all you men of war; you shall go all around the city once. This you shall do six days.

4 And seven priests shall bear seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark. But the seventh day you shall march around the city seven times, and the priests shall blow the trumpets.

5 It shall come to pass, when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, and when you hear the sound of the trumpet, that all the people shall shout with a great shout; then the wall of the city will fall down flat. And the people shall go up every man straight before him.”

MEMORY VERSE
Joshua 6:3 – And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days.

MESSAGE

As a believer, your faith is a key ingredient in your walk with God. It determines whether you live as a victor or a loser, a success or a failure, a master or a servant. God tests believers’ faith in various ways. Yesterday, we learnt how He tested Abraham’s faith and the inestimable blessings the patriarch got for passing God’s tests.

God also tested the faith of Joshua and the children of Israel he was ordained to lead to the Promised Land. He tested their faith by introducing to them a strange plan of campaign. The plan was not only strange but laughable, but Joshua understood God’s ways.

The children of Israel were very close to the Promised Land but the walls and gates of Jericho stood between them and their dream as well as inheritance. They needed God’s intervention to surmount the challenge that the impregnable walls proved to be as well as the unyielding army of Jericho. When God spoke to Joshua on what to do, the strategy sounded too simple and ridiculous: “And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once

Thus shalt thou does six days” (Joshua 6:3). However, the ridiculous sometimes give birth to the miraculous if we exercise faith in God who uses the foolish things of the world to confound the wise. It was actually a test of faith for Joshua and the children of Israel. If they had rejected God’s prescription for their victory, they would have failed in that campaign and be unable to enter Canaan. Joshua instructed the children to do exactly as the Lord had told them. They and the priests went round the walls thirteen times, gave a shout and the wall of Jericho fell down flat.

Beloved, is the Lord telling you the step of faith to take concerning an issue that has defied all solutions? Does the step God told you to take look too simple or sound unbelievable. If you will believe, you will see the glory of God. Inside the ridiculous is often found the miraculous. God is only testing your faith. Do his bidding even if it doesn’t make sense. Like Joshua, you will testify of His goodness.

MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE
Faith is put to test when the situation is most difficult.

PROPHETIC WORD
I prophesy that the test of your faith shall produce unusual blessings, progress and promotion for you, in the name of Jesus.

HYMN: My hope is built on nothing less

  1. My hope is built on nothing less
    Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
    I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
    But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
    But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

Chorus
On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

  1. When darkness seems to veil His face
    I rest on His unchanging grace;
    In ev’ry high and stormy gale
    My anchor holds within the veil.
    My anchor holds within the veil. 
  2. His oath, His covenant, and blood,
    Support me in the ‘whelming flood;
    When all around my soul gives way
    He then is all my hope and stay.
    He then is all my hope and stay.
  3. When He shall come with trumpet sound,
    Oh, may I then in Him be found;
    Dressed in His righteousness alone,
    Faultless to stand before the throne.
    Faultless to stand before the throne.
