Mountain Of Fire Daily Devotional For January 8, 2022 : Topic – Cling To God’s Word
TOPIC: Cling To God’s Word
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Genesis 17, Genesis 18, Matthew 6:25-34, Matthew 7:1-23, Proverbs 1:8-19
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Psalm 19:1-14 (KJV)
The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
7 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
MEMORY VERSE: “The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.” – Psalms 119:72
The word of God is a lamp by night, a light by day, and a delight at all times.
PRAISE & WORSHIP
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
I DECREE THAT THIS YEAR, THE POWER OF GOD’S WORD WILL TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE AND MAKE YOU A LIVING TESTIMONY OF HIS GOODNESS, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
Beloved, do you want this year (2022) to be greater and more fulfilling for you than the ones gone by? The way to achieve that desire is to cling to God’s word. The word “cling” means to hold on to something or someone very tightly. As humans, we tend to hold things that are precious and valuable to us very tenaciously. The reason is that we do not want to lose such things and the benefits we derive from them. The Bible lends credence to the excellency of God’s word. The word of God is sharper and more powerful than any two-edged sword (Hebrews 4:12). It is more precious than gold and sweeter than honey and the honey comb (Psalm 119:72; Psalm 19:10). It is more important than our physical food (Job 23:12). One of the best decisions you can make this year is to regard God’s word more precious to you than television, social media, football, and any other thing you are wrong yoked with or addicted to. If you do this, your life will take a glorious turn.
The truth is that your entire life depends on God’s word. It has all the answers to your questions and the solutions to your problems. It is God’s special provision for reigning in life. Fill and surround your life with God’s word. Make time for studying it and for praying day and night, in your daily schedule (Joshua 1:8). Don’t ever let anything distract or cut you off from God’s word. No matter the season of life you find yourself, cling to God’s word. No matter the storm or challenge you are faced with, stay in it; depend absolutely on it. Don’t seek any short-cut or any evil alternative. God is faithful!
In God’s inspired, living and incomparable word, everything you need is available: salvation, healing, deliverance, breakthrough and prosperity, a godly spouse, fruit of the womb, ministerial breakthrough, victory over your foes, promotion, progress and all-round fulfilment. This year, I advise you to heed the admonition of Apostle James, “… he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the word, this one will be blessed in what he does” (James 1:25). God bless you immensely as you do the needful, in Jesus’ name.
- Father, this year, help me to cling to Your word and esteem it more than my necessary food, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, give me the grace to value Your word more than gold, silver and the ephemeral treasures, in the name of Jesus.
- My Father, deliver me from anything that is preventing me from studying and clinging to Your word, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, give me the grace to look into Your word and continue in it with faith and obedience, in the name of Jesus.
- Powers assigned to deny me the blessings of God’s word this year, you are liars, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, I declare that Your word is my weapon and it is more powerful than any challenge that the enemy can bring my way, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, I declare that this year, Your word will have pre-eminence in my life, in the name of Jesus.
