TOPIC: The Tragedy Of Wasted Opportunities (II) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 2 March 2023)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Deuteronomy 28, Deuteronomy 29, Deuteronomy 30, Ephesians 3, Ephesians 4
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 2 Kings 5:20-27 (KJV)
20 But Gehazi, the servant of Elisha the man of God, said, Behold, my master hath spared Naaman this Syrian, in not receiving at his hands that which he brought: but, as the Lord liveth, I will run after him, and take somewhat of him.
21 So Gehazi followed after Naaman. And when Naaman saw him running after him, he lighted down from the chariot to meet him, and said, Is all well?
22 And he said, All is well. My master hath sent me, saying, Behold, even now there be come to me from mount Ephraim two young men of the sons of the prophets: give them, I pray thee, a talent of silver, and two changes of garments.
23 And Naaman said, Be content, take two talents. And he urged him, and bound two talents of silver in two bags, with two changes of garments, and laid them upon two of his servants; and they bare them before him.
24 And when he came to the tower, he took them from their hand, and bestowed them in the house: and he let the men go, and they departed.
25 But he went in, and stood before his master. And Elisha said unto him, Whence comest thou, Gehazi? And he said, Thy servant went no whither.
26 And he said unto him, Went not mine heart with thee, when the man turned again from his chariot to meet thee? Is it a time to receive money, and to receive garments, and oliveyards, and vineyards, and sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and maidservants?
27 The leprosy therefore of Naaman shall cleave unto thee, and unto thy seed for ever. And he went out from his presence a leper as white as snow.
MEMORY VERSE: “3 Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, 4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.” – Matthew 27:3-4

PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:RECEIVE THE GRACE TO BE PREPARED, MEET THE RIGHT OPPORTUNITY AND RECORD HUGE SUCCESS, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
MFM Devotional For Today 2023 MESSAGE:
We have established the fact that wasting opportunities leads to a life of failure, hardship and misery. We also concluded that you should bind and cast the waster of opportunities out of your life. Let us continue the discourse.
God sent Prophet Samuel to Jesse’s household to anoint the new king of Israel. David did not miss that divine opportunity. He was not missing nor found wanting when they went to bring him from where he was tendering his father’s flock. Similarly, Joseph did not miss the opportunity to end his years of slavery, misery and pain. When King Pharaoh had a dream that troubled him and Joseph was taken before him to Interpret the dream, that well-utilised opportunity marked a turning point in the life of Joseph: the prisoner became a prime minister and that man that was in obscurity came into limelight, as a great solution provider. Paul did not miss the great opportunity to align his destiny with God’s plan. While he was going to Damascus to continue the persecution of Christians and the Church, Jesus gave him an encounter that altered the course of his life positively and forever. These opportunities that came the way of Joseph, David and Paul marked a turning point in their lives.

Divine opportunities are the keys to your desired change, miracles and testimonies. Losing them will attract disastrous consequences. Gehazi lost the opportunity to be a great prophet and to leave a glorious legacy for generations after him. Judas lost the opportunity to become a great apostle and change the world for God. Samson, King Saul and Demas all lost the opportunities heaven offered them.
Beloved, you must pray for the spirit to recognise and utilise divine opportunities. You must pray opportunity wasters out of your life. The starting point is to give your life to Christ and make Him your personal Lord and Saviour. That is the first and most important opportunity you must not miss. When you are saved, the Holy Spirit will help you to recognise and avail yourself of other divine opportunities, and your life will show forth God’s glory, in Jesus’ name.
O God, help me to be at the right place and at the right time, in the name of Jesus.
Evil covenants and curses working against my breakthrough and lifting, die, in the name of Jesus.
My Father, make me a candidate of Your favour, in the name of Jesus.
Powers swallowing opportunities and blessings in my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
Angels of my opportunities and allocations, locate me by fire, in the name of Jesus.
Any man or woman in custody of my divine opportunities and allocations, locate me by fire, in the name of Jesus.
Heaven of divine opportunities, open to me now by fire, in the name of Jesus.
