MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 23 February 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Managing Success Successfully (II)
TOPIC: Managing Success Successfully (II) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 23 February 2019)
Bible In One Year: Numbers 5-6; Mark 4:1-20
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Isaiah 39:1-8
MEMORY VERSE: “The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.” – Proverbs 14:27
Success should draw us nearer to God, but it has moved many people away from Him. When a person is successful but does not realise that his success originates from God, he is likely to misuse the success or fail to manage it well.
Secondly, if a successful person does not realise that the purpose of his God-given success is to serve God and serve other people, the person will not manage his success well. It is often said that when the purpose of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable. Many financially successful people are not using their wealth to glorify God. They don’t pay tithe or give offering and first fruits, neither do they help the poor, the widows and missionaries. Many of such people spend their money on frivolities, concubines and frequenting ungodly places. Managing success well requires God’s wisdom and direction.
Our Fire Scripture today is an account of king Hezekiah’s failure to manage his success well. Merodach-baladan, the son of Baladan, king of Babylon had sent some envoys to him with a letter and a gift because the Babylonians heard that Hezekiah has just miraculously recovered from a terrible sickness. Rather than inquire from the Lord on how to deal with the heathens that came to visit him, Hezekiah threw caution to the wind. Isaiah 39:2 says, “And Hezekiah was glad of them, and shewed them the house of his precious things, the silver, and the gold, and the spices, and the precious ointment, and all the house of his armour, and all that was found in his treasures: there was nothing in his house, nor in all his dominion, that Hezekiah shewed them not.” Then the Lord sent Prophet Isaiah to king Hezekiah to tell the king of the consequences of his foolish act. Isaiah said, “Hear the word of the LORD of hosts: Behold, the days come, that all that is in thine house, and that which thy fathers have laid up in store until this day, shall be carried to Babylon: nothing shall be left, saith the LORD. And of thy sons that shall issue from thee, which thou shalt beget, shall they take away; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.” King Hezekiah did not manage his success well. As a result he left a big problem and huge deficit for his children and grand-children.

Your success in life shall not become a snare unto you.
