The theme for MFM Daily Devotional November 13 2022 is ”The Potter’s Touch (II)”
Here is today’s MFM daily devotional designed for your today’s spiritual refreshment. Kindly read today’s teaching by Dr DK Olukoya, meditate on the word of God and endeavour to act in accordance with them. As you start your day with God through his word, may he go before you to perfect all you have to do today.
SCRIPTURE: “Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise.” – Jeremiah 17
The current unpleasant global situation shows that individuals, families and nations need to go to God, the Great Potter, for a new touch – for salvation, healing, deliverance, illumination, restoration and blessing. That is the wise way to get healing from the affliction and pain the enemy has brought upon them. In Jeremiah 18:1-10, God specifically spoke to Israel, stressing that He could help and restore her just as the Potter remoulded the marred work in his hand (Jeremiah 18:1-6). In Jeremiah 18:7-10, God revealed His sovereignty, stating that He would pluck up and pull down a disobedient and rebellious nation as well as build and plant the one that honours His word.
God gave conditions for receiving His touch of restoration by individuals, families and nations. The first condition is repentance. He said that if He had spoken that He would pluck up and pull down a nation and the nation turn away from their evil ways, He would have mercy on them and would not bring judgement on them as He had said. Conversely, if He had spoken to build and plant a nation and the same nation disobeys His voice and turn to evil, He would not build and plant them as He had said.
The story of Jeremiah’s visit to the potter’s house and what God taught him there contains several lessons for us. First, obedience is not negotiable in our walk with God. As long as we remain in God’s will, it will be well with us. Disobedience opens the door for the enemy to defile, kill, steal and destroy in our lives. For you to receive the healing and restoring touch of the Great Potter, you must turn from disobedience to a life of obedience. Second, you must cry for mercy and repent genuinely. Forsake anything that is contrary to God’s will and cling to His will and purpose for your life.
Today, nations of the world are plagued by numerous problems: terrorism, pestilence (COVD-19 and others), food shortage (famine), unemployment, inflation, economic recession, war and political unrest, etc. As believers, we need to intercede for our nations and leaders. Let us take them to the Great Potter and ask for His touch of healing, restoration and perfection.
- Father, help me to always honour Your word, in the name of Jesus.
- My Father, plant, build and establish me, in the name of Jesus.
- Thou Great Potter, I present my ……………………to You, remould it, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, arise and refashion my nation, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, let Your sovereign touch turn my parched ground to pools of water, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, let Your sovereign touch bring Your glory upon my life and destiny, in the name of Jesus.
- Blood of Jesus, remove shame from my life, in the name of Jesus.
