MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 24 August 2020 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – The Danger Of The Burial Of Your Talents
TOPIC: The Danger Of The Burial Of Your Talents (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 24 August 2020)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ecclesiastes 7-9
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Matthew 25:14-30 (KJV)
14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.
15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.
16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.
17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.
18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money.
19 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.
20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.
21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.
23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:
25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.
26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:
27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.
28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.
29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.
30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
MEMORY VERSE: “These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates:” – Zechariah 8:16
The truth of the matter is that lie may travel a thousand miles but sooner or later, the truth will catch up with it.
PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
ANY POWER THAT HAS BEEN STEALING FROM ME, I SHALL REPOSSESS ALL I HAVE LOST, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
What you do with your God-given talent will determine your output in life. Never bury your talent. It is dangerous to do so. This is the kernel of today’s devotional study. A lot of families are being wasted. It is the waster that circulates a woman from one husband to the other and also circulates a man from one wife to another.
Somebody came to me and said that she wanted to marry. I asked her whether she had found God’s chosen one for her and she said yes. The man she wanted to marry was 57 years old, while she was only 48. She further told me that the man had married five times and all the wives were dead. Unfortunately, the sister could not see that the man had the spirit of wasters working on him.
We should learn from the predicament of the Israelites who wasted all the opportunities to hear the Lord by themselves. So also did Esau waste all his opportunities. If the powers of the wasters were to be working on blind Bartimeaus, he would have missed his healing. But he refused to lose the opportunity.
Some are wasting their talents. They are using them to glorify the devil. Some are even burying theirs. There are many things that could get a Christian to hell fire. But one which is clear in the Bible is burying one’s talent. The fellow burying his talent will become like the unprofitable steward who said, “You gave me one talent and since I did not see you and because I was afraid, and know that you wanted to reap where you did not sow, I buried it.” The master had no other option than to throw him into the outer darkness where there was weeping and gnashing of teeth.
- After the order of the tomb of Jesus, let every evil stone on the road to my breakthroughs be rolled away, in the name of Jesus.
- Good opportunities that have ever passed my life, reappear by fire, in the name of Jesus.
- All opportunities coming to me shall become well of blessings, in the name of Jesus.
- My labour shall not bring sorrow into my life, in the name of Jesus.
- Every evil associated with the labours of my hands, your time is up, be cut off by fire, in the name of Jesus.
- Any evil wind on assignment against my blessings, go back to your senders, in the name of Jesus.
- I command peace upon all stormy issues in my life, in the name of Jesus.
