MESSAGE: MFM Daily Devotional | 22nd January 2022 – Say NO To Powerlessness (2)
Yesterday, we began to examine the dangers of powerlessness and noted that a Spirit filled Christian is an asset to God and a blessing to His kingdom while a powerless Christian is a liability to himself, God and others. You were encouraged to reject powerless Christian living and obtain God’s power to reign in life.

When there is powerlessness, the enemy will make the life of a person to run contrary to his divine destiny, dreams and prophecies. When the power of God left Samson, he became a mere toy in the hands of his enemies, the Philistines (Judges 16:17). When the power of God departed from King Saul, an evil spirit troubled him and he lost his mind. Both scenarios explain that powerlessness can come as a result of sin, as well as spiritual carelessness.
Lack of spiritual power is the reason that servants are riding the horses of many believers while they trek. The rate at which the enemy and his cohorts afflict and steal from some people at will is really alarming. Such people have been reduced to mere shadows of themselves. This is all because they lack the power to rule over the devil, resist him and make him flee.
The kingdom of God is in power. Jesus Christ and the apostles demonstrated the power of God to the world and changed it for Christ. However, our Fire Scripture shows that powerlessness constitutes great disservice to God and His Kingdom. A man brought his epileptic child to Christ’s disciples to heal, but they could not because they lacked the required faith and power. Jesus cast out the spirit and the disciples asked Him why they could not. He replied that it was their unbelief that rendered them helpless to contend with the demon.
Beloved, without being filled with the Holy Spirit and anointed with the power from on high, you cannot genuinely impact your generation for God, be His change agents and purpose partner. The only way to be a victor in life and not a victim, prey or casualty is to be filled with the power of God and to use it to achieve God’s purposes. A powerless Christian and a powerless church can neither fulfil God’s purpose nor bring glory to Him.
1. Powers assigned to make me a spent force, you are liars, die, in the name of Jesus.
2. Power drainers, assigned against me, die now, in the name of Jesus.
3. Father, empower me to be Your change agent and purpose partner, in the name of Jesus.

4. In the order of the Apostles of Jesus, O Lord, give me great grace and great power, in the name of Jesus.
5. O God, arise and deliver me from the consequences of powerlessness, in the name of Jesus.
6. I say no to the profitless life of spiritual powerlessness, in the name of Jesus.
7. Power to change the world for Christ, come upon me, in the name of Jesus.
Prayer Of Salvation

Say This Prayer
I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me!
In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
