PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
TODAY, GOD WILL BUILD A WALL OF FIRE ROUNDABOUT YOU, BE THE GLORY WITHIN YOU AND SHINE FORTH, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
MFM Devotional For Today 2023 MESSAGE:
Truly, the perilous times are here. Both believers and unbelievers are aware of the unpleasant happenings that characterise these last days: pestilences and natural disasters that are killing in millions, insecurity of lives and property evidenced in kidnappings, terrorism and ritual killings, strange deaths through flood, fire outbreaks, auto, boat and air mishaps, among others. Globally, the daily death toll is frightening and the conclusion in the media as well as other quarters is that no one is safe. Beloved, that conclusion is not the position of the Bible. Believers are special species, God’s children, His chosen and favourite people. They are set apart for His glory and He watches over them.
Now that you know that God protects His children from danger, evil and calamity, I counsel you strongly to give your life to Jesus and begin to live under His loving care and protection. How does God guard His people? Let us answer this all important questions. First, He puts them under the precious blood of Jesus (Exodus 12:13; Revelation 12:11). When the angel of death went to kill the firstborn children of the Egyptians, God instructed His children to slaughter a lamb per household and apply the blood to their doorposts and lintels. Those who stayed under the covering of the blood were all spared from death. Today, we overcome satan by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony!
Second, God puts His children in His hand to protect them. John 10:28-29 underscores this, “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.”
Third, God puts His beloved children in a shelter or His shadow. The Bible assures that in the time of trouble, God will hide you in His pavilion and in the secret of His tabernacle as well as set you upon a rock (Psalm 27:5). The word of God also affirms that when you dwell in the secret place of the Most High, you will abide under His shadow. That is divine protection guaranteed!
