MFM Devotional, November 19th, 2023
TOPIC: Beware Of Modern-Day Idolatry
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Daniel 1:1-8 (KJV)
MEMORY VERSE: “But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.” – Daniel 1:8 (KJV)
MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE: An idol of the mind is as offensive to God as an idol of the hand.
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY: I COMMAND THE FIRE OF GOD TO CONSUME EVERY IDOL IN YOUR LIFE NOW, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ezekiel 42, Ezekiel 43, Philippians 1, Philippians 2
Daniel was a teenager that followed the doctrines of his fathers. He was among those taken captives in Babylon but he never departed from the truth. He did not need anyone to motivate him; he did not need anyone to encourage him; he did not need anyone to convince him. He stood for the truth. When he got to Babylon, he carefully observed his environment and purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the king’s portion.
What do you think is the king’s portion? The king’s portion is everything distracting you from focusing on God and your positive goals. The things that get adults and teenagers carried away are the king’s portion. Daniel purposed that he was not going to be defiled.
The kind of deep love and passion that some people have for sports like football, basketball, wrestling, boxing as well as other pastimes like film, music and so on at the expense of their spiritual lives is worrisome. These forms of entertainment have become idols in the lives of many people, including believers. They buy tickets for admission into film houses and stadia but they do not pay their tithes and do not give their offering. They would rather watch football matches than attend mid-week church services. Many miss Sunday services due to the hang over they are nursing from Saturday parties they attended. Football, film and music are modern-day idols. Beloved, if you are guilty of this, you must turn a new leaf today!
The more you expose yourself to these worldly activities, the less of the presence of the Holy Spirit you retain. Some films and music are lewd, immoral and defiling.
Beloved, keep the word and ways of God wherever you find yourself. You do not throw away godly morals because you have changed location. On campus and in your workplace, be a light and do not work for the devil. Daniel became a wonder because he continued firmly in all the doctrines and laws of the Lord in a strange land. For this reason, God made him His favourite. You can work your way to God’s heart like Daniel by standing firm on the truth, even in the face of bad friends and trials.
