Mountain Top Life MFM Daily Devotional For 4 November 2021; Thursday Devotional Message Written By Dr D.K Olukoya (PMCH) – The Slumbering Spirit

TOPIC: The Slumbering Spirit

MEMORY VERSE:

Psalm 121: 3-4 – “He will not suffer thy foot to be moved. He that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.”

FIRE SCRIPTURE:

Matthew 26:36-46

36 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.

37 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.

38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.

39 And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?

41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.

43 And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.

44 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.

45 Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

46 Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.

MESSAGE

Slumbering is sleeping. The disciples of Jesus fell into sleep when they needed to pray. A lot of Christians today are sleeping at the battlefront. Jesus was on His way to the cross and needed their support in prayers, but they disappointed Him. It is a dangerous thing to engage in physical slumber, but it is more dangerous to slumber spiritually.

John 4:24 tells us the importance of being spiritually awake. God is a Spirit and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. How do we relate to God who neither slumbers nor sleeps when our spirit is slumbering? For us to be in tune with God, our spirit must be awake (Psalm 121:3-4). The spiritual realm is a battleground where battles go on ceaselessly.

Proverbs 6:4 warns us that we must not sleep nor slumber if we want to deliver ourselves from the wickedness of the fowler. 2 Timothy 2:4 calls Christians chosen soldiers of the Lord and advises us not to engage in worldliness which can put us to sleep or slumber.

Slumbering can also manifest in the form of spiritual carelessness, prayerlessness, disobedience to the word of God as well as lack of thirst and hunger for the word of God.

Jesus illustrated this fact with the Parable of the Ten Virgins. The five wise virgins had oil in their lamps while the other five foolish virgins, who had no oil, went into slumber instead of looking for oil (Matthew 25:1-13). Most of the battles and problems we fight as Christians come into our lives when we are spiritually asleep.

This is aptly illustrated by the Parable of the Tares (Matthew 13:24-30). Jesus said while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. A slumbering spirit is weak. A slumbering spirit has no resistance against the attack of evil spirits. We need to wake up from our slumber by reviving our prayer lives, Bible reading, fasting and obedience to the word of God.

In Romans 12:11, the Bible admonishes us not to be slothful in business, but we should be fervent in spirit and serve God with increasing enthusiasm. Heed this counsel. It pays!

MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:

Every defeat starts with a slumbering spirit, which has no defence.

PROPHETIC WORD:

Every evil power assigned to induce you to slumber in order to destroy you shall die by fire, in the name of Jesus.

HYMN: Awake, My Soul, And With The Sun

  1. Awake, my soul, and with the sun
    Thy daily stage of duty run;
    Shake off dull sloth, and joyful rise,
    To pay thy morning sacrifice. 
  2. All praise to Thee, who safe has kept,
    And hast refreshed me whilst I slept.
    Grant, Lord, when I from death shall wake,
    I may of endless life partake
  3. Lord, I my vows to Thee renew;
    Disperse my sins as morning dew;
    Guard my first springs of thought and will,
    And with Thyself my spirit fill.

  4. Direct, control, suggest, this day,
    All I design, or do, or say,
    That all my powers, with all their might,
    In Thy sole glory may unite.
  5. Redeem Thy misspent moments past,
    And live this day as if thy last;
    Thy talents to improve take care;
    For the great day, thyself prepare.
