BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Chronicles 11, 1 Chronicles 12:1-22, Romans 14:19-23, Romans 15:1-13, Psalm 69:46-52
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Psalm 63:1-8; Psalm 42:1-2 (KJV)
1 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
2 To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
3 Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
4 Thus I will bless them while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
6 When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on them in the night watches.
7 Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
8 My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.
1 As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.
2 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?
MEMORY VERSE: “My soul followeth hard after them: thy right hand upholdeth me.” – Psalms 63:8
The emptiness of life can only be filled by God on the inside.
PRAISE AND WORSHIP:
Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit.
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
Your soul shall not be trapped by evil appetite, in the name of Jesus.
MFM Devotional For Today 2022 MESSAGE:
God created man primarily for fellowship. The Almighty purposed that the spirit of man should make Him, the Lord God, its habitation. The satanic incursion into the life of man however disrupted this divine agenda. The scale of priority was changed. Man started living for self rather than living for God.
Yet man cannot find rest for his soul without establishing that vital connection with the Almighty God. That deep hollow and emptiness in the heart of man shall continue to exist until man makes a complete passionate u-turn and begin to earnestly seek God like the Psalmist whose soul pursues after Godly.

Beloved, it is a known fact that since after the fall, human beings have been pursuing a lot of things, both legitimate and illegitimate, without thinking much about pursuing and possessing the Lord God of mercy.
Many spend their lives pursuing money, building houses and buying mansions and exotic cars. Some pursue the acquisition of wealth and fame even to the obvious damnation of their souls. Other people pursue after degrees and other academic certificates. Many others have been enslaved by the gathering of designer wears, shoes, bags and ostentatious jewelleries. In fact, some people spend all their time pursuing after the opposite sex. There are other people who pursue the acquisition of satanic power and dark magical art. The devil has so much overwhelmed many lives with evil appetite, inordinate passion and has also distracted them from pursuing God, which is the Ultimate Pursuit.
My beloved friend, hope you are not entangled by this rat race which is dragging many into hell fire. Our Lord Jesus Christ is warning against wrong pursuit in life, says in Luke 12:15, “… Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.” I believe you now understand the message the Spirit of Christ has passed across to you. May your heart be opened to His voice today, in the name of Jesus.
- Lord Jesus, capture my heart, in the name of Jesus.
- Satanic tares programed to invade my heart, die by fire, in the name of Jesus.
- Undiluted love of God, explode in my heart, in the name of Jesus.
- My soul, be delivered from the track of wrong pursuits, in the name of Jesus.
- Whatever will not add value to my life but is assigned to pull me down, release me and die now, in the name of Jesus.
- O Lord, fill me with deep hunger for You, in the name of Jesus.
- My inner man, receive fresh fire, in the name of Jesus.
