MFM Daily Devotional 27 October 2021 Outline
Spiritual retreat can be different from each individual, but the common thing or practice about retreat is prayer petition or intercession as the case may be. Many of us are familiar with rest and relaxation, but spiritual retreat can be said to be a time to regroup, re-access and re-focus on things yet to come.
It is also an expected time for quiet reﬂection like reading the Scripture, time of group sharing by encouraging, consoling and inspiring others. In our text today, Elijah was one of the ﬁrst in a long time of important prophets God sent to Israel and Judah. God told him to hide himself by the brook Cherith and He would send ravens to feed him there. God hid him in a lonely and quiet place to commune with Him.
In that place he was able to focus on God, and the messages God was giving him at the time was accurate without mixing words. When he came out, the power of God ﬁlled him to the brim, that he could face Ahab the king, Jezebel, his wife, and the prophets of Baal. Anytime you go for a quiet reﬂection in the presence of God, you come out refreshed, powerful and fulﬁlled.
This is what prophet Elijah enjoyed. He was able to disgrace the prophets of Baal by calling down the ﬁre of God. All the Baal prophets were killed. Prophet Elijah caused revival in the land of Israel. Our Lord Jesus Christ was just completing a forty-day fast and time alone with God.
The devil came to temp Him but He was able to defeat satan because the power of God was with Him. If there is no time of retreat in your life, forget about revival. The result of personal, group or corporate retreat is revival, whether personal revival, group or corporate revival. The problem we have is procrastination. That is, I will do it tomorrow, and tomorrow will never come.
Do it today and the power of revival will enter into your life, in Jesus’ name. When you tarry in the Lord’s presence, as Elijah did, your life will never be the same again.
MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE| There is nothing intelligent about not standing up for yourself. Within you, there is stillness and a sanctuary you can retreat. At anytime, be yourself.
PROPHETIC WORD| The Almighty God will repair your broken altars, in the name of Jesus.
HYMN: Deeper, Deeper In The Love of Jesus
Deeper, deeper in the love of Jesus Daily let me go;
Higher, higher in the school of wisdom,
More of grace to know
O deeper yet, I pray
And higher ev’ry day,
And wiser, blessed Lord In Thy precious holy Word.
Deeper, deeper, blessed Holy Spirit,
Take me deeper still,
Till my life is wholly lost in Jesus And His perfect will.
Deeper, deeper, tho’ it cost hard trials,
Deeper let me go!
Rooted in the holy love of Jesus, Let me fruitful grow.
Deeper, higher ev’ry day in Jesus
Till all conflict past,
Finds me conqu’ror, and in His image Perfected at last
1. I arrest every spiritual serpent waging war on my spirit man, in the name of Jesus.
2. I shut off every internal voice speaking against my spirit man, in the name of Jesus.
3. O Lord, empower me to be a fire brand man, in the name of Jesus.
1. My Eagle, receive fire, in the name of Jesus.
2. O Lord, teach me how to pray and get result, in the name of Jesus.
3. I shall not be a fire quencher, in the name of Jesus.
4. O Lord, break me and remould me, in the name of Jesus
