MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 14 August 2020 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – The Unexpected Knock
TOPIC: The Unexpected Knock (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 14 August 2020)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Job 29-31
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Luke 12:16-21 (KJV)
16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:
17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?
18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.
19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?
21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
MEMORY VERSE: “I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.” – Jeremiah 17:10
Your mouth is the vehicle of your destiny, the compass of your life and the engine of your success.

PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
ANYONE WHO IS USING FETISH POWER AGAINST ME SHALL BE DISGRACED IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
There is a moment in life when we automatically become sober. This is what we are looking at in today’s devotional. I have often said that there are two places where sermons are effective: the cemetery and the leprosy colony.
In fact, one of the best altar calls that I have ever seen or witnessed was at the cemetery. Let’s listen to the preacher: “Three days ago, this man was drinking coke in my house. Little did I know that, in three days time, he would be gone. But he is here now in the grave. One day, whether you like it or not, whether you refuse to grow old or you are polishing your hair and carrying your body cream everywhere you go, one day, you will land here too. And those left behind would say: “Oh, he has gone home.” But, who knows where you are going? Who really knows?”
God’s measuring scale weighs many things. David’s father had many sons, some huge and handsome, and some who looked respectable and holy. They seemed qualified to be the king of Israel. In fact, Samuel almost made a mistake when he saw Eliab coming. He said, “Surely, this is him.” But the Lord said to him, “Look not at his countenance nor his frame, for the Lord looketh not as man looketh, a man looketh at the surface. But I the Lord, looks at the heart.” So, God had looked at the heart of all the sons of Jesse, weighed all of them and only David measured up to His standard. David was almost not allowed to come. He was the smallest son and was busy looking after the sheep in the field. But Samuel said, “Go and bring him, we will not sit down till he comes.” And he remained standing with his anointing oil, looking for the head to pour it on.
The story of the rich fool has lots of lessons for us. Do not wait for death to knock unexpectedly at your door, before you do what is right in the sight of the Lord. It will be too late at that time.
- Every chain and shakle of limitation upon my life, break, in the name of Jesus.
- Disappeared helpers, reappear to move my destiny forward, in the name of Jesus.
- I stop my stoppers by fire, in the name of Jesus.
- God arise and set my feet in a large room, in the name of Jesus.
- Thou power of vain-labour, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Every power wasting my efforts, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Power of hard-labour assigned against my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
