TOPIC: A Divine Escape
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Acts 23:12-24
OUTLINE: Today we are looking at the mystery of divine escape. In today’s session, we shall look at what it takes to overcome the snare of the enemy.A woman had five sons, four of whom were married and for many years, none of them had a child. The fifth one was about to marry and luckily for him, he was given a book from M.F.M. He did not understand the prayers but he prayed them anyway.
One day, the Lord told him that he should not sleep with his wife for the first seven days of their wedding. He told his fiance and she agreed. On the wedding night, the bride came close and he reminded her of their agreement. The following day, the same thing happened. On the third day, the newly wedded wife got angry and struggled with her husband and even tore his clothes, but he stood firm and did not sleep with her.
On the fourth day, he got a phone call from home that his mother was dying. The couple rushed there and the mother said she had a confession to make. She said she was a witch and had donated the sperms of her five sons and that was why they had no children. The covenant she made was to spiritually collect the sperms of her sons, on the first three days of their marriage. She had succeeded in the lives of the other four but when it got to the turn of the last one, she found out that they were not having sexual intercourse.
She had only three days to carry out the operation, that was why the pressure was high from the bride on the third day and since she could not donate the sperm, she had to die. That was why she sent for the man and his wife and then she died. That brother is the only one that has children out of the five men till today.
Beloved, just as evil agents have vowed to destroy Paul the Apostle, there are powers that are bent on swallowing your destiny. You must pray against such powers.
Proverbs 6:14“Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he soweth discord.”
There is no spirit of any dimension that can equal or compete with the spirit of God. Therefore, rejoice, you are on the winning side.
Any power assigned against my existence shall scatter to pieces.
MFM Daily Devotional 22 July 2020 HYMN – Abide with me; fast falls the eventide
Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide.
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.
Swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day;
Earth’s joys grow dim; its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all around I see;
O Thou who changest not, abide with me.
Not a brief glance I beg, a passing word;
But as Thou dwell’st with Thy disciples, Lord,
Familiar, condescending, patient, free.
Come not to sojourn, but abide with me.
Come not in terrors, as the King of kings,
But kind and good, with healing in Thy wings,
Tears for all woes, a heart for every plea—
Come, Friend of sinners, and thus bide with me.
Thou on my head in early youth didst smile;
And, though rebellious and perverse meanwhile,
Thou hast not left me, oft as I left Thee,
On to the close, O Lord, abide with me.
I need Thy presence every passing hour.
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter’s power?
Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.
