Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 20 May 2023 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled
TOPIC: Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 20 May 2023)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Nehemiah 5, Nehemiah 6, Nehemiah 7, John 1, John 2
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Luke 12:22-32 (KJV)
22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.
23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.
24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?
25 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?
26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?
27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?
29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.
30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.
31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
MEMORY VERSE: “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.” – John 14:1
Trouble will always find its way into human hearts but how still and peaceful the heart can be in the midst of trouble determines the longevity of its stay. Be still.

MFM Devotional For Today 2023 MESSAGE:
Man, that is born of a woman is born into trouble. Whether poor or rich, good or bad, believer or unbeliever, every human will have a taste of a troubled experience in his lifetime. However, the degree at which troubles come to everyone differs. Troubles are part of life, whether we like it or not, but our attitude towards it will determine how it gets to make or mar us.
Beloved, when trouble comes, let not your heart be unsettled. If you allow your heart to be troubled, it will pave the way for more troubles and fears than the heart can handle. Note that all great heroes and heroines all through ages have stories of dark hours to tell.
One beautiful thing about this phase of life is that it has produced giants, both in the kingdom of God and in the secular world. A lot of people get to discover their treasures during these troubled moments. But sadly too, such moments have swallowed others who could not see the light at the end of the tunnel. The difference, therefore, is perception and choice.
I charge you to trust in the Lord with all your heart at such times. Be in the company of like- minded believers who can sharpen you. Get yourself addicted to God’s word, take ample time to rest, take a break from stress, exercise your body, eat well, take a walk. Sometimes, listen to inspiring music, have good sleep, and most importantly, help someone else going through troubles. All these will help to get you to calm down during troubled moments. Don’t worry. Cheer up; it shall end in praise and testimonies, in Jesus’ name.
Beloved, Jesus’ statement, “Let not your heart be troubled” implies that you have control over how you respond to the burdens and challenges you face in life. God expects you to be calm and trust Him even in uncertain circumstances. This is because we serve a living God who cares for His children. He has defeated the darkness of this world and we are in His winning team. Those who have courageous trust in Him will be free from worries and will enjoy His peace.
Father, I thank You for the gift of life because I know since I am still living, there is hope for me, in the name of Jesus.
Father, as I go out today, lead me not into temptation and troubles, in the name of Jesus.
O God, arise and deliver me from every evil programmed into this day, in the name of Jesus.
Every pit of trouble dug for me and my family, swallow your digger, in the name of Jesus.
You the troubler of my Israel, the God of Elijah shall trouble you today, in the name of Jesus.
The peace of God that the world cannot understand and decode, fall upon my life and family, in the name of Jesus.
Father, give me rest on every side, in the name of Jesus.
