TOPIC: Defeating The Spirit Of Discouragement (III) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 20 February 2022)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Exodus 27, Exodus 28, Mark 6:1-6, Psalm 24:1-10

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Acts 16:25-31 (KJV)

25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.

27 And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.

28 But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.

29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,

30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

MEMORY VERSE: “Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.” – 1 Corinthians 16:13

In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.

Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit.


Mountain Top Life MESSAGE:

Courage is a virtue that all children of God should possess. It is the ability to do something that frightens others. It is strength in the face of pain and grief. Quite a lot of situations will definitely come your way to discourage or distract you. They may come in any facet of life. They could be related to situations that bring about dejection, depression, disappointment, despondency, hopelessness, lack of enthusiasm, despair, gloom and low spirit.

The environment and situation around us now is so full of discouragement, but you have to encourage yourself in the Lord. The devil has a mandate to ensure that the children of God do not succeed in life (Revelation 12:12). Your spouse or children could discourage you like the case of Job. The wife of Job knew that Job was a man that feared God and kept His commandment with high respect; yet in the day of adversity and want, she told him to curse God and die (Job 2:9).

Your pastor or mentor can discourage you because they are human beings. Your family members, neighbours, boss or associates may discourage you directly or indirectly. You may be going through a lot now, but bear it in mind that the devil’s aim is to make sure you do not reach your goal and succeed in life. Do not be discouraged or weary; just have faith in God and believe in His words. When Jesus was faced with the devil’s lies and temptations, He countered them with the truth of God’s word. The spoken word of God is a powerful sword in our mouth (Hebrews 4:12) and if Jesus depended upon it to face challenges in life, you too can. Look forward to the crown waiting for you after this present realm; be courageous, be strong, and note that the Bible says, “Christ in you is the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27).



  1. I overcome the spirit of fear and its torment, in the name of Jesus,
  2. Spirit of discouragement, I am not your candidate, die, in the name of Jesus.
  3. Holy Spirit, fill me with courage and strength, in the name of Jesus.


  1. Any challenges that is assigned to throw me into despondency and depression, die now, in the name of Jesus.
  2. O God, arise and turn my night to day, in the name of Jesus,
  3. O God, arise and banish sorrow out of my life, in the name of Jesus.
  4. O God that gives beauty for ashes, appear in my life now, in the name of Jesus.
