Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 9 April 2021 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – The Power Of Brokenness
TOPIC: The Power Of Brokenness (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 9 April 2021)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Samuel 4-8
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Psalms 51
1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according to unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest and be clear when thou judgest.
5 Behold, I was shapened in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.
9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
11 Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not thy holy spirit from me.
12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation and uphold me with thy free spirit.
13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways, and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.
16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.
19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.
MEMORY VERSE: “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.” – Psalms 51:17
What God breaks, He makes into a masterpiece.
PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
GOD WILL ARISE AND MAKE YOU WISER THAN YOUR ENEMIES, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
In 2 Samuel 12:1-12, after Nathan’s very grave speech to David, David’s only recorded response in the passage is found in a simple but loaded statement: “I have sinned against the Lord.”
This is David, a man after God’s own heart and the greatest king of Israel. This remorseful response is a profound attitude of brokenness. Beloved, anyone that ignores the highway of brokenness cannot make it spiritually. What is brokenness? It is the shattering of your self-will. It is the absolute surrender of your will to the will of God. It is the condition of being completely subdued and humbled before the Lord, and as a result, completely yielded to and dependent upon Him also. Brokenness is the spirit of the humble, contrite heart, the poor and the harmless. You must understand that God breaks us in order to mould us into what He wants us to be.
Brokenness is a prerequisite for you if God must use you. It gives us access to God’s secret place. It brings us into intimacy with the Lord God Almighty and opens up our lives to spiritual fellowship with our Maker. Jesus is our perfect example of brokenness. Are you broken? If you refuse to be broken, the pleasant sweet smell of your life will not flow out. Moreover, brokenness is the right of passage to blessings. It is the bridge to the depth of God’s love and intimacy. However, it is not without a price. You have to give up your life completely so that you can gain all of God. Unfortunately, without brokenness, you will miss the Lord’s best for your destiny and experience a life-long process of stagnation. You may make little progress, but not without still messing up your Christian testimony. These will not be your portion, in the name of Jesus.
I encourage you to pray to God to break you and make you into the image of His Son, Jesus. What He breaks, He makes. And what God makes is always beautiful.
- Lord Jesus, thank You for Your wonderful plan for my life, in the name of Jesus.
- Stronghold of stubbornness in my soul, scatter, in the name of Jesus.
- Demonic powers pulling my life away from God, scatter, in the name of Jesus.
- My destiny shall arise and disappoint my enemies, in the name of Jesus.
- Thou Great Potter, I present my life and destiny to you, perfect them, in the name of Jesus.
- My Father, by Your mercy, make me a vessel unto honour, fit for Your use, in the name of Jesus.
- I dedicate my life, my destiny and all that belong to me to Jesus Christ, in the name of Jesus.
