Read and Digest Today’s MFM Daily Devotional for 14th November 2023, written by Pastor (Dr) D.K. Olukoya. May the Lord bless you through this study!
TODAY’S TOPIC: IDENTIFYING MODERN DAY DISTRACTIONS
Dr. Daniel Kolawole Olukoya(DKO).
Philippians 3:2 – Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.
Distraction is a killer of dreams, visions and goals.
Prophetic Word for Today:
I banish the spirit of distraction from your life, in the name of Jesus.
Fire Scripture: 2 Peter 3
3 This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
2 That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:
3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

MFM DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR 14TH NOVEMBER 2023
Beloved, the Lord will like to speak to you today about the suddenness of His coming and how you need to watch and pray and not be carried away by the lust of this world. It is in the news and social media that a lot of teenagers and adults are involved in sexual perversions. This is causing a lot of havoc in the lives of many believers and many have already been caged by this wicked spirit.
The devil knows that the fastest way to drain the believer is to involve them in sins that irritate God’s Spirit from dwelling in their temples. And this is the biggest distraction for the believers today, young and old alike.
Apart from sexual perversion, there is an inordinate desire for money, impurity, idolatry. cybercrimes, lies, cultism, rape, ritual killing, rebellion against parents and many more. These wicked spirits have been unleashed from hell against the believers to distract them from serving the Lord and preparing for His second coming.
Beloved, you will need to fight these distractions. Remember Lot’s wife, angels were sent to deliver them from the destruction that was coming for Sodom and Gomorrah. She looked back instead of keeping her eyes focused on the land of redemption where they were headed.
Many believers are like that. Sunday school teachers and their pastors are speaking to them. Their parents are teaching them and praying for them but their eyes and heart are on the lust of the world. Beloved, rapture must not meet you in sin. There is no amount of prayer that can bring a person out of hell, once he enters. Focus on Jesus. Pray to Him to help you. Tell God to never allow you find yourself on the road that leads to destruction. Confide in godly people like your parents and spiritual guardians about the weaknesses you are dealing with and follow the advice they give to you.
All these things happening now are signs of the end time. If you are reading this, the Lord has decided to save your soul from the wrath of hell. Prayerfully get rid of satanic distractions from your life and turn your heart back to the Lord.
