The theme for MFM Daily Devotional November 14 2022 is ”The Potter’s Touch (III)”
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: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,” – Luke 4:18.
We have established the timeless truth that God, the Great Potter, is wiling to save, heal, restore and perfect individuals, families and nations that get marred or broken by sin and disobedience. The key to this is repentance. Today, we want to look more closely at the lives of individual Christians who need the help of the Great Potter.
Do you feel a failure in your Christian life? Do you see yourself as a broken and defiled vessel? Has the enemy sold you his lies and you have fallen prey to his deceits and disobeyed God? Do not commit suicide or go back into the world. The escape routes of alcoholism or drugs that the enemy is suggesting to you are death traps. I want you to take note of what Jeremiah learnt in the potter’s house – that God can refashion you into a new and glorious vessel.
Peter missed it but the Lord refashioned him. He became the foremost apostle of Pentecost. Don’t give up on yourself and don’t give up on God. His mercy endures forever. Mary Magdalene was a product of God’s mercy. She also received the Potter’s restoring touch. Apostle Paul also had a life-changing encounter with the Great Potter; he was refashioned from being a persecutor and enemy of the Church to an extraordinary apostle and Kingdom builder. The demoniac of Gadara got the touch of the Great Potter. The spirit of madness departed from him and he became an evangelist. The Bible says that he went to the Decapolis (ten cities) to share the gospel and proclaim the unparalleled love of God. Every encounter with the Great Potter produces divine turnaround. This shall be your portion today, in Jesus’ name.
Today, there are hundreds of cases of prostitutes, alcoholics, armed robbers, fraudsters, murderers and so on who received the Great Potter’s touch and are today fire-brand preachers, evangelists and ministry assets in God’s Kingdom. No matter how bad you think your case is, the God of salvation is willing to remould you to suit His purpose if you turn to him in repentance today. Ask Him to make you anew right now, and stay still under His touch as he puts you back on to the wheel of His purpose this very day.
- My Father, have mercy upon me, in the name of Jesus.
- Blood of Jesus avail and prevail for me, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, let Your power fix every broken and defiled vessel in my life, in the name of Jesus.
- Powers assigned to break and defile me, die, in the name of Jesus.
- I receive the grace to move from strength to strength and from glory to glory, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, give me a life-changing encounter today, in the name of Jesus.
- My destiny, reject bewitchment, in the name of Jesus.
