TOPIC: The Dangers Of Complacency (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 19 May 2024)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Nehemiah 5, Nehemiah 6, Nehemiah 7, John1, John 2.

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Hosea 6:1-14 (KJV)

1 Come, and let us return unto the Lord: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.

2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.

3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.

4 O Ephraim, what shall I do unto thee? O Judah, what shall I do unto thee? for your goodness is as a morning cloud, and as the early dew it goeth away.

5 Therefore have I hewed them by the prophets; I have slain them by the words of my mouth: and thy judgments are as the light that goeth forth.

6 For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.

7 But they like men have transgressed the covenant: there have they dealt treacherously against me.

8 Gilead is a city of them that work iniquity, and is polluted with blood.

9 And as troops of robbers wait for a man, so the company of priests murder in the way by consent: for they commit lewdness.

10 I have seen an horrible thing in the house of Israel: there is the whoredom of Ephraim, Israel is defiled.

11 Also, O Judah, he hath set an harvest for thee, when I returned the captivity of my people.

MEMORY VERSE: “And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The Lord will not do good, neither will he do evil.” – Zephaniah 1:12 (KJV)

Only the Almighty God knows it all.

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

Every spirit of over-confidence unto destruction assigned against you, die, in the Name of Jesus.

MFM Devotional For Today 2023 MESSAGE:

Complacency is feeling that you have arrived and do not need to improve on yourself or on what you are doing. You become so confident that you lose every sense of danger, threat, competition, or need for change or improvement.

Complacency can happen in many ways. For example, a Christian who becomes unserious with his prayer life, when the Bible says, “Pray without ceasing.” Samson in the Bible is a good example of a complacent Christian. Samson was a man endued with power from his mother’s womb, but he took the grace of God for granted. Instead of living a holy life dedicated to God and His ways, he became reckless and led an iniquitous life. He was morally loose and continued to wine and dine with the devil and his agents until he met his waterloo in the bosom of Delilah, an agent of satan who lived in the valley of Sorek. Judges 16:19-20 says, “And she made him sleep upon her knees; and she called for a man, and she caused him to shave off the seven locks of his head; and she began to afflict him, and his strength went from him. And she said, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awoke out of his sleep, and said, I will go out as at other times before, and shake myself. And he wist not that the Lord was departed from him.”

Samson was so profane. He relied so much on his mundane wisdom to outwit the devil. He forgot that it is the Lord that guides the feet of His saints and by strength shall no man prevail (1 Samuel 2:9). This is where complacency can lead anyone to destruction.

Beloved, are you beginning to think that you have arrived and there is nothing new to learn or that nobody is better than you? 1 Corinthians 10:12 (MSG) says, “Don’t be so naive and self-confident. You are not exempt. You could fall flat on your face as easily as anyone else. Forget about self-confidence; it’s useless. Cultivate God-confidence.”



  1. Every spirit of pride working in my life, die, in the Name of Jesus.
  2. Father Lord, deliver me from the spirit of self-destruction, in the Name of Jesus.
  3. Father Lord, give me the spirit of humility, in the Name of Jesus.


  1. Father Lord, teach me by Your Spirit, in the Name of Jesus.
  2. Father Lord, lead me by Your Spirit, in the Name of Jesus.
  3. Evil spirits assigned to kill me, die, in the Name of Jesus.
  4. Dark powers controlling my life remotely, die, in the Name of Jesus.
