*MOUNTAIN TOP LIFE DAILY DEVOTIONAL*

 

Friday, 08 February 2019

 

*Bible In One Year:* Leviticus 4-5; Matthew 24:29-51

 

TOPIC: *THE SPIRITUAL GARBAGE DUMP*

 

*FIRE SCRIPTURE:* John 2:13-16

 

*MEMORY VERSE:*

```Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.``` *-Matthew 15:11*

 

*The MESSAGE:*

When the Olusosun Garbage Dump in Lagos caught fire recently, releasing thick black contaminating smoke into the environment, it set me thinking about human garbage dumps. The food a man eats and the contents of his heart turn him into a garbage dump. Doctors say excess salt, fats, dirt etc into our bodies, could turn a man's body into reservoir for sickness and diseases.

 

But Jesus, in Matthew 15:17-18, and that the garbage in the heart, mind or spirit is even more dangerous than the garbage in the stomach. Gal. 5:19-21 gives a comprehensive list of some spiritual garbage that must never be found in any man's soul or spirit.

 

*How do these garbage get dumped into a man's life?*

 

1. Through your own disobedience. This has only one name -SIN.

2. Through the blood, idolatry, polygamy, witchcraft, stealing, drunkenness etc and the accompanying curses enter a man's life through inheritance.

3. Through the gates in the body. Ear, eyes, mouth, sexual organs. Dirty films and music, food sacrificed to idols, sex outside marriage, dirty talk are some of such garbage.

4. Witchcraft and household wickedness have converted many stars into nonentities through bewitchment, spells, polygamist rivalry and attacks from the occult.

5. Festering wounds in the spirit cause bitterness, anger, hatred.

6. Looking back. Those who drive the vehicles of their lives with gaze fixed on the rear view mirror end up committing unpardonable errors.

7. Many have fallen into the trap of the devil through their ignorance of the will of God.

 

Beloved, Proverbs 23:7 says that a man is what he thinks. Jesus says the contents of a man's heart determine who he is. Every action a man takes starts from the thoughts in his heart. Therefore, a man whose heart is a garbage dump automatically is garbage, which like the Olusosun dump, contaminates his environment with foul stench. Such people find that they are unable to achieve any good thing in life.

 

Found yourself in this situation? Give your life afresh to Christ. Repent of all sins. Avoid sin like the plague. Study the word of God to enable you know Him better. Pray without ceasing. Kill all doubts. Avoid spiritual stagnation. Be filled with the Holy Spirit.

 

Our God yearns to turn human garbage to treasure. I Pray for you that the God of new beginning will visit you, in Jesus' name.
