You are reading Today’s MFM Daily Devotional 26th January 2021 Today Tuesday was written by Pastor D. K. Olukoya to inspire and bless you. May the Lord bless you through his word, Amen.

TODAY’S TOPIC: HEALING YOUR EMOTIONS (II)

Memory Verse: Gal. 5:16 – This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

Motivational Quote: Refuse to be a slave to unhealthy emotions. Detach yourself from that which can destroy you. Determine to embrace the mind of Christ at all cost.

Prophetic Word: Today, your days of conscious and unconscious slavery to negative emotions and ungodly mindset are over by the power in the Blood of Jesus.

Fire Scripture (MFM Daily Devotional 26th January 2021 Today): Col. 3: 5-16
5 Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. 6 Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience,
7 in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them.
8 But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth.
9 Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, 10 and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him,
11 where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all.

Character of the New Man
12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering;
13 bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.
14 But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.
15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.
16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Today’s Outline – MFM Daily Devotional 26th January 2021

Negative emotions are not from God. They are rooted in the works of the flesh. They constitute sin unto God. Can we then continue in sin and ask for more grace? (Rom. 6:1) The Bible answers, God forbid! Unfortunately, many people, Christians and non-Christians, are involved in the manifestation of unhealthy emotions in their relationships and daily activities, simply because they lack self-control and discipline.

The resultant effect is that this physical and spiritual carelessness poses imminent danger to their physical and spiritual health. It is injurious to relationships and personal well-being. Therefore, it would be a tragedy to continue living in deception of, “this is who I am, just take me for who I am or let me be!” This is nothing but denial of your deficiencies or refusal to seek help. Remember, “slaves who love their chains will remain in bondage”!

As long as you keep pampering your weaknesses and bottle feed this emotional monster, you are in for a serious problem – an accident waiting to happen! The needful thing is that you sit down and take a spiritual and emotional stock of your life. This may take you right to the very foundation of your life: your ancestry and predominant genetic factors that could be responsible for these negative attitudes and behaviours. Yes, your character, an embodiment of your emotions, could be acquired traits from negative environmental and social influences.

Ask yourself some crucial questions such as these: Do you find people in your lineage behaving the same way you do? Why are you often moody and unresponsive? Are you a slave to anger? Read Eccl. 7:9. An angry man lacks wisdom and self-control. Are you proud and arrogant? God resists the proud but embraces the humble (James 4:6).

Do you easily fall into envy and jealousy, hatred and bitterness? Learn from Cain who entertained the same and eventually killed his brother. Rather than curtail his evil desires, he created an easy access for other negative emotions like guilt, fear etc. Remember, fear has torment (2 Tim. 1:7) and bitterness defiles (Heb. 12:15).

Joseph found a place in his heart to forgive his brothers in spite of the evils they had committed against him. Why can’t you do the same? Negative emotions will break your spirit, trigger deeper problems, create self-inflicted injuries and hurt your loved ones, damaging healthy relationships. At the end, you gain nothing but lose more than you ever bargained for.

The final blow is that you offend yourself, others and God. What a calamity! God has called us to healthy and vibrant expressions of our emotions; think positively, act and react responsibly. Our words should be graceful and edifying, not harsh and offensive to God and our fellow men (Prov.15:1; Ps. 19:14; Col. 4:6).

By doing this, you assume your ordained position in God through Christ and win more souls, expanding the Kingdom of God. MFM Daily Devotional 26th January 2021 Today

HYMN: MY HOPE IS BUILT ON NOTHING ELSE

1. There’s not a friend like the lowly Jesus,
No, not one! No, not one!
None else could heal all our soul’s diseases,
No, not one! No, not one!

Chorus
Jesus knows all about our struggles,
He will guide till the day is done;
There’s not a friend like the lowly Jesus,
No, not one! No, not one!

2. No friend like Him is so high and holy:
No, not one! No, not one!
And yet no friend is so meek and lowly,
No, not one! No, not one!

3. There’s not an hour that He is not near us,
No, not one! No, not one!
No night so dark but His love can cheer us,
No, not one! No, not one!
