TOPIC: Be Grateful Always (II) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 2 January 2023)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Genesis 4, Genesis 5, Genesis 6, Matthew 4, Matthew 5, Matthew 6

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Luke 17:11-19 (KJV)

11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.

12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off:

13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.

14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.

15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God,

16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.

17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?

18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.

19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.

MEMORY VERSE: “O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.” – Psalms 136:1

MOTIVATIONAL QUOTES:Never let the things you want make you forget the things you have.

PRAISE AND WORSHIP:Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit


MFM Devotional For Today 2023 MESSAGE:

Yesterday, we established the biblical truth that gratitude is the open door to abundance and that staying grateful is an important key for having a uniquely great year for every believer. Today, we shall examine more of the amazing benefits of staying grateful to God.

(6) It will draw you closer to God and qualify you for more of His blessings. In Luke 17:11-19, out of the ten lepers that Jesus healed, one stayed grateful. He returned, glorified God and thanked Him. He did not take the favour of the Lord for granted like the other nine. Jesus put a divine seal on his healing – he was made completely free from leprosy! (7) It brings contentment and makes what you have enough. It will save you from incurring God’s wrath like the Israelites who murmured against Him in the wilderness. Godliness with contentment is great gain (1 Timothy 6:6-8). (8) It deepens faith. I encourage you to keep a record of God’s faithfulness. It is called gratitude or testimonies journal. Read them from time to time and you will never forget that God is forever faithful. This will boost your faith (Psalm 136:1). (9) It leads to joy. Psalm 126:1-3 confirms that the Hebrew exiles were thankful to God for turning around their captivity, and the result of their gratitude was their hearts being filled with joy. (10) It protects you from falling prey to the devil’s lies and deceits. (11) It guards you against envy. You will be happy with what you have and will not want what belongs to someone else. A heart that is truly grateful has no room left for envy. (12) It helps you live in the present and appreciate God’s goodness every time. Ungrateful people ask, “Why were the former days better than these? For it is not from wisdom that you ask this” (Ecclesiastes 7:10). (13) It is a way of giving your testimony. Every time you openly thank God and acknowledge His goodness in your life, you make yourself evidence of a changed or blessed life and that is a testimony.

Beloved, make gratitude your hallmark. Thank God profusely for what you have on a daily basis. He will give you what you want and your joy will be full this year and beyond, in the name of Jesus.



My Father, give me the grace to stay grateful to you all the days of my life, in the name of Jesus.

This year, I reject ingratitude, murmuring and complaining, in the name of Jesus.

O God, give me all the amazing benefits that are due to Your thankful children, in the name of Jesus.


Father, I appreciate You because You are the source of all the blessings that I enjoy, in the name of Jesus.

This year, my life shall be a great wonder and testimony, in the name of Jesus.

Father, let the sacrifice of thanksgiving and praise that I offer to You daily be acceptable in your sight, in the name of Jesus.

O God, arise and bless me with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places, in the name of Jesus.
