MFM Mountain Top Life Devotional 4 April 2020 By Dr. D.K Olukoya
Topic: Favour for Outstanding Breakthroughs
Fire Scripture: Ps. 44:1-8
Memory verse: Acts 21:19“And when he had saluted them, he declared particularly what things God had wrought among the Gentiles by his ministry.”
Outline: Outstanding breakthroughs can only be experienced on the platform of divine favour. I remember a woman who went to the embassy to obtain a visa to travel out of the country. She was on the queue when a Whiteman called her and asked what she came for. She said she came for visa to travel out. The Consular then asked what she wanted to use the visa for and the woman told him that she wanted to travel out to buy shoes for sale here in Nigeria.
The Whiteman asked if she had enough money to start the business and the woman told him that she did not have, but she would look for it as soon as she got the visa.
Normally, with that information, she was not supposed to have been granted the visa, but because she had the oil of favour upon her head, the Whiteman collected her passport and told her to come back by 2:00 p.m. On getting there by 2:00 p.m., the visa was given to her. The woman was the only person that was granted visa that day. That is divine favour at work!
However, the oil of favour that is dropped on your head can be stolen. The ordination of favour from birth can be stolen just as virtues are transferred. This is where warfare is necessary. You need to possess what had been lost. You have to possess what the enemy had stolen from you. If you want uncommon promotion, you have to receive the oil of favour. You have to receive divine favour for you to receive breakthroughs and uncommon favour.
You MUST receive divine favour to stand out and shine to the glory of God. Divine favour is what every man need. There is no kind of limitation that divine favour cannot remove. Through divine favour, many have won battles; many have become heroes; many became kings. By divine favour, failures became successful.
Through divine favour you can secure the willingness of God to bless and protect you. You shall push down your enemies. You will boast in your God.
Your destiny shall not lack the oil of favour.
All those who are gathering up to mock you, they shall plan your celebration in the name of Jesus.
Today’s Hymn: He who would valiant be ‘gainst all disaster
He who would valiant be ‘gainst all disaster,
Let him in constancy follow the Master.
There’s no discouragement shall make him once relent
His first avowed intent to be a pilgrim.
Who so beset him round with dismal stories
Do but themselves confound – his strength the more is.
No foes shall stay his might; though he with giants fight,
He will make good his right to be a pilgrim.
Since, Lord, Thou dost defend us with Thy Spirit,
We know we at the end, shall life inherit.
Then fancies flee away! I’ll fear not what men say,
I’ll labor night and day to be a pilgrim.
