MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 8 August 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – The Holy Spirit and Believers
TOPIC: The Holy Spirit and Believers (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 8 August 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalm 74-76; Romans 9:16-33
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Revelation 4:1-5
MEMORY VERSE: “And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.” –Isaiah 11:2
The Holy Spirit of God is a Person. He is the executor of the will of God. The Bible gives us a picture of Him at creation, as the creative essence of God, He moved upon the waters and brought all the spoken word of God into being (Genesis 1:2b).
In the New Testament, He was given to the believers and to the Church as a comforter and a Guide. As a popular man of God used to say, He is our Senior Partner in our ministry to God’s people. We cannot do anything apart from the Spirit of God (John 15:5). The Holy Spirit dwells in believers. John 14:17 says, “Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.” The Bible also affirms that if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his (Romans 8:9b). As a believer, the Holy Spirit is your Spiritual dynamo, your Teacher, your Guide, your Illuminator, your Helper and Comforter. You need Him for everything and in all things in your Christian walk on earth. He is the believer’s Indispensable Companion.
Many people erroneously think that prayer and fasting are the main source of getting spiritual power for a Redeemed Christian, but the Bible says, “Thou shall receive power after the Holy Ghost might have come upon you.” Therefore, the Holy Spirit is the true Source of the believer’s power. He is the Custodian of the anointing and the Spiritual dynamo.
The Holy Spirit enabled David to kill Goliath. He empowered Elijah to defeat the Prophet of Baal. He emboldened and enabled the apostles to turn their world upside down. He is the power behind the major revivals the earth has witnessed.
Beloved, the believer is supposed to experience the indwelling, abiding and empowering presence of the Holy Spirit everyday. This will ensure sweatless victory and amazing successes with ease. However, do not grieve the Holy Spirit so that He does not withdraw Himself from you. When He withdrew from king Saul and from Samson, both of them ended as mere shadows of themselves. You will end well, in the name of Jesus.
THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME, TO PREACH AND PROCLAIM LIBERTY TO THE CAPTIVES.
The Spirit of the Living God shall overshadow you and your family from now and forevermore.
- Holy Spirit, come upon me, power of the Highest overshadow me, in the name of Jesus.
- The Holy Spirit will not depart from me, in the name of Jesus.
- Holy Spirit, grant me Your abiding, indwelling and empowering presence, in the name of Jesus.
- Holy Spirit, the Custodian of the anointing, anoint me today, in the name of Jesus.
- Power to change my world for Jesus, come upon me, in the name of Jesus.
- Holy Spirit, destroy the strong man assigned against me by fire, in the name of Jesus.
- Holy Spirit, arise and turn my shame to glory, in the name of Jesus.
