Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 23 September 2022 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – The Christian Leader
TOPIC: The Christian Leader (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 23 September 2022)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Isaiah 55, Isaiah 56, Isaiah 57:1-13, Ephesians 2, Psalm 110:1-7
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Peter 5:2-10 (KJV)
2 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;
3 Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being examples to the flock.
4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
5 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
MEMORY VERSE: “Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;” – 1 Peter 5:2
Lead the way according to the mind and will of God.
PRAISE AND WORSHIP:
Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
GOD WILL MAKE YOU AN EXEMPLARY LEADER IN THIS GENERATION, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
MFM Devotional For Today 2022 MESSAGE:
A leader is someone with a magnet in his heart and a compass in his head. A Christian leader is one that has the love of God in his heart. A Christian leader serves his flock in love and sincerity. A shepherd ought not to lord over God’s heritage, but be a good example to his flock (1 Peter 5:2,3). To be a Christian leader, you need to grow in God’s love daily else you will forsake the flock that Christ has entrusted to you. No leader can function effectively without passion for his followers. It is the passion that keeps you going even in the days of adversity. In John 10:29, Jesus said that none can pluck His sheep out of His Father’s hands. That is how much a shepherd should guard his flock.
Yesterday’s Devotional: MFM Devotional 22 September 2022 – Walk In The Spirit
John 4:34 says, “Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.” A Christian leader builds capacity to be able to defend, protect and feed his flock. Anyone whom God has appointed to lead His people is expected to take up the responsibility with all seriousness. A leader has been given followers by God to direct them in the path that God has ordained for them. Jesus’ focus was to finish the work which He was sent to the world to do. Every Christian leader will give account of the flock assigned to him. God said to Ezekiel in chapter 3:20 21, “Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.”
A leader leads the way for others to follow. God in His wisdom has established an order for men. He made some leaders and others followers. Ask God for grace so that their blood will not be required of you.
- Power to be a good leader, come upon me now, in the name of Jesus.
- I will not mislead my flock, in the name of Jesus.
- Grace to finish the work of God gloriously, overshadow my life now, in the name of Jesus.
- Every attack against the oil of leadership upon my head, receive confusion, in the name of Jesus.
- Arrows of backwardness attacking my ministry, backfire, in the name of Jesus.
- Wolves in the midst of my sheep, catch fire and burn to ashes, in the name of Jesus.
- Powers assigned to use my flock against me, die by fire, in the name of Jesus.
