MFM Mountain Top Life Devotional 21 October 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – The Mystery of Divine Help
TOPIC: The Mystery of Divine Help
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Isaiah 62-64; 1 Timothy 1
FIRE SCRIPTURE: John 3:26-27
MEMORY VERSE: “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” – James 1:17
MESSAGE: In this context, mystery means something that baffles understanding and cannot be explained. Help means making something easier or possible to achieve. It also means the fulfilment of a need or purpose. So, when help is divine, it means it emanates from God. Therefore, divine help means help from above. From the Fire Scripture for today, we can deduce that principalities and powers are in the second heaven and they are positioned to block prayers of people and answers from God.
Human rulers of darkness of this world are here on earth to prevent and, if possible, stop us from praying. God created the heaven and the earth and everything in them belong to Him. He is a jealous God and will not share His glory with men. The devil gives. Man can also give, but perfect help and gift can only come from God to those who belong to Him. The devil and the world do not want you to have what you deserve.
God’s wish is that you should be prosperous, because He is the only One that knows what you need. He has given you a destiny that must be fulfilled and only He knows what you need to fulfil your destiny. Also, Jesus promised us help from above (the Holy Spirit) when He was going back to the Father. No man has the power to help you, only God does. Due to all these, if you want to succeed in life and make heaven at last, you must look up to heaven for your help.

The consequences of seeking help from beneath or looking up to man or ungodly sources for help are grave and disastrous. They include: disappointment, failure, sickness, affliction, poverty, mockery, disgrace, bondage, lateness in good things, trouble, murmuring and death. This is the reason why God instructed the Israelites in the wilderness, “Look up to the serpent and ye shall live.” When they looked down away from the serpent unto man, they died.
We are to look up to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith. Beloved, when you look up to heaven for help, you shall receive genuine help, you shall be a friend of God; angels shall work for you to dislodge the devil as well as principalities and powers in the heavenly places for your sake. Heaven shall open unto you and warrior angels shall be on assignment for your sake. You shall have divine insurance and protection. You shall celebrate here on earth and be favoured. Do you need all these? If your answer is yes, from today begin to look up to God for you help. Be born again genuinely and let your eyes be fixed unto God for all your needs.
A CLOSED MOUTH IS A CLOSED DESTINY.
As you look up to heaven today, all problems in your life shall bow by fire.
1 Powers in the heavens, preventing me from receiving help from above, die, in the name of Jesus.
2 My Father, You helped Esther, Hannah, Elijah, Elisha and blind Bartimaeus, arise and help me today, in the name of Jesus.
3 Every evil side-attractions, distracting me from looking above, die, in the name of Jesus.
4 Powers, rulers of darkness of this world, preventing me from looking above for help, die, in the name of Jesus.
5 My heaven, open by fire, in the name of Jesus.
6 From today, I refuse to look down for help; I look unto heaven where comes my help, in the name of Jesus.
7 Association of mockers waiting for my failure in order to mock me and laugh me to scorn, be devoured by the Lion of Judah, in the name of Jesus.
