December 31, 2019 Mountain Of Fire Devotional :- The Law Of Divine Substitution
TOPIC: The Law Of Divine Substitution
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Malachi; Revelation 22
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Daniel 6:19-27
MEMORY VERSE: “The righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked cometh in his stead.” –Proverbs 11:8
When God wants to fight for His children, He uses the law of divine substitution. Our Memory Verse for today is a scriptural affirmation of this truth. Divine substitution is not only when the righteous comes out of trouble and the wicked goes into it. It is also when the wicked in high places are tormenting God’s children and God fights for His children so the wicked in power is removed and God’s child or children is used to replace him. David had been a blessing to Saul’s life and kingdom. When the Philistines threatened Saul’s reign and Goliath roared against his kingdom, God used David to defeat the enemies and bring glory to the God of Israel as well as peace to Saul and the citizenry. Yet Saul grew envious of David’s achievements and the praise people showered on him. He sought to kill David. In the end. It was Saul who died miserably and David reigned in his stead.
Haman plotted against the Jews. He hated Mordecai and his people with perfect hatred. His plot backfired because God intervened to save His children, the Jews. The gallow Haman built to kill Mordecai with, was what he used to hang himself. The Jews were miraculously delivered as the king’s command for their destruction was reversed. Evil decree for your hurt shall be reversed, in the name of Jesus.
Our Fire Scripture for today reveals how Daniel’s enemies plotted against him and got the king to make a decree concerning Daniel’s prayer life. The simple truth is that Daniel’s rise and progress in Babylon made those people envious and engendered the conspiracy. With their vulpine cunning, they manipulated the king and got Daniel thrown into the den of lions. The lions could not devour Daniel because God sent His angel to shut their mouths. When the king saw the miraculous deliverance of Daniel, he praised Daniel’s God. He also ordered that the men who had accused Daniel as well as their wives and children be brought and cast into the den of lions. The Bible says that the lions seized them and devoured them instantly. The same was the fate of those who conspired against Mashack, Shadrach and Abednego. The Lord saved these righteous men, but their enemies were consumed by the same fire that could not hurt the three Hebrew men.
Beloved, the God of Daniel, Mashack, Shadrach and Abednego is still alive. He is your God. From His throne in heaven, He still operates the law of divine substitution in favour of His children. Your part of the deal is to be born again and live in God’s will. Any power that plots to harm you or kill you shall die in your place, in the name of Jesus.
Whosoever digs a pit for the saint of God will surely fall into it.
YOUR ENEMIES SHALL BE SNARED BY THE WORK OF THEIR HANDS.
1. Father, let the law of divine substitution work for me now, in the name of Jesus.
2. Owners of evil load in my life, carry your load, in the name of Jesus.
3. My enemies shall fall into the pit they dug for me, in the name of Jesus.
4. O God of Daniel, arise and fight for me, in the name of Jesus.
5. Powers conspiring against me because of my progress and promotion, somersault and die, in the name of Jesus.
6. Let all confederacy and conspiracy against me scatter, in the name of Jesus.
7. Let the Haman in my life, fall, die and be disgraced, in the name of Jesus.
