Topic: The Peril Of A Wrong Location
Fire Scripture: Jer. 4:1-18
4 If thou wilt return, O Israel, saith the Lord, return unto me: and if thou wilt put away thine abominations out of my sight, then shalt thou not remove.
2 And thou shalt swear, The Lord liveth, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; and the nations shall bless themselves in him, and in him shall they glory.
3 For thus saith the Lord to the men of Judah and Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns.
4 Circumcise yourselves to the Lord, and take away the foreskins of your heart, ye men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest my fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings.
5 Declare ye in Judah, and publish in Jerusalem; and say, Blow ye the trumpet in the land: cry, gather together, and say, Assemble yourselves, and let us go into the defenced cities.
6 Set up the standard toward Zion: retire, stay not: for I will bring evil from the north, and a great destruction.
7 The lion is come up from his thicket, and the destroyer of the Gentiles is on his way; he is gone forth from his place to make thy land desolate; and thy cities shall be laid waste, without an inhabitant.
8 For this gird you with sackcloth, lament and howl: for the fierce anger of the Lord is not turned back from us.
9 And it shall come to pass at that day, saith the Lord, that the heart of the king shall perish, and the heart of the princes; and the priests shall be astonished, and the prophets shall wonder.
10 Then said I, Ah, Lord God! surely thou hast greatly deceived this people and Jerusalem, saying, Ye shall have peace; whereas the sword reacheth unto the soul.
11 At that time shall it be said to this people and to Jerusalem, A dry wind of the high places in the wilderness toward the daughter of my people, not to fan, nor to cleanse,
12 Even a full wind from those places shall come unto me: now also will I give sentence against them.
13 Behold, he shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind: his horses are swifter than eagles. Woe unto us! for we are spoiled.
14 O Jerusalem, wash thine heart from wickedness, that thou mayest be saved. How long shall thy vain thoughts lodge within thee?
15 For a voice declareth from Dan, and publisheth affliction from mount Ephraim.
16 Make ye mention to the nations; behold, publish against Jerusalem, that watchers come from a far country, and give out their voice against the cities of Judah.
17 As keepers of a field, are they against her round about; because she hath been rebellious against me, saith the Lord.
18 Thy way and thy doings have procured these things unto thee; this is thy wickedness, because it is bitter, because it reacheth unto thine heart.
Matthew 13:7 “And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:”
MFM Daily Devotional 5th August 2021 Outline
In today’s devotional, we shall look at the dangers of a wrong location. Wrong locations produce deep problems. You must relocate from whatever wrong location in which you have found yourself. Among the children of God to whom God has promised to be their God and Father, are some who are sitting and abiding in the region of darkness. They know that they have familiar spirits but they are not making efforts to be delivered. This set of people are lost.
It reminds me of the story of a man who was between two armies in conflict. The first army put on a blue uniform. The other put on a red uniform. The man did not know which army would win the war. When the crossfire came, it met him in between the blue army and the red army. He was shut, because he was wrongly positioned and located.
Some people are agents of setback in the house of God. Whether they come early or not, they occupy the back row. Even in small meetings, they occupy the back seat, whether they got there early or not. Even when there are empty seats in front, they prefer the back seats. I have witnessed such a situation in our church. As there were lots of seats in front, I told the man who sat at the back to occupy one of the empty seats in front; but he refused. What he did was to simply move to the next seat from the back.
There are some people who don’t want to sit in the church auditorium, but prefer to sit near the entrance gate or verandas. When you are positioned at the church veranda, you are wrongly located. The keyword for you is to reject your wrong location and return to the Lord who shall direct you to locate your divinely allocated location.
You can turn moments of adversity to times of spiritual strength with the ever increasing power of God. Align your weakness with heaven strength and you will never be weary.
Every warfare against your life shall be scattered.
Fairest Lord Jesus, Ruler of all nature
1. Fairest Lord Jesus, Ruler of all nature,
O Thou of God and man the Son:
Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honour,
Thou my soul’s glory, joy, and crown.
2. Fair are the meadows, Fairer still the wood-lands,
Robed in the blooming garb of spring:
Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer,
Who makes the woeful heart to sing.
3. Fair is the sunshine, Fairer still the moonlight,
And all the twinkling starry host:
Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer,
Than all the angels heaven can boast.
4. Beautiful Saviour! Lord of the nations!
Son of God and Son of Man!
Glory and honour, Praise, adoration,
Now and forever more be Thine!
– from Munster Gesangbuch
1. The dream of God for my life shall not be slaughtered. O God, arise and manifest my dreams in full, in the name of Jesus.
2. My cry, provoke angelic violence against strongmen assigned to my life, in the name of Jesus.
3. Every plantation of failure in my foundation, die, in the name of Jesus.
1. Foundational witchcraft yoke, break, in the name of Jesus.
2. Every negative power flowing from my foundation to kill my destiny, die, in the name of Jesus.
3. Every dog of witchcraft barking against me, die, in the name of Jesus.
4. Every altar of witchcraft, I tear you down, in the name of Jesus.
