MFM topic for 1 Sept 2022: coming out of Lo-Debar (1)




WELCOME to MFM Devotional, 01-09-22


Thy Kingdom Come, O God

1 Thy kingdom come, O God,
thy rule, O Christ, begin;
break with thine iron rod
the tyrannies of sin.

2 Where is thy reign of peace
and purity and love?
When shall all hatred cease,
as in the realms above?

3 When comes the promised time
that war shall be no more,
and lust, oppression, crime
shall flee thy face before?

4 We pray thee, Lord, arise,
and come in thy great might;
revive our longing eyes,
which languish for thy sight.

5 Men scorn thy sacred name,
and wolves devour thy fold;
by many deeds of shame
we learn that love grows cold.

6 O’er lands both near and far
thick darkness broodeth yet:
arise, O Morning Star,
arise, and never set!

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Micah 5, Micah 6, Micah 7, 2 Corinthians 5:1-10, Proverbs 21:17-26.

MEMORY VERSE: 2 Samuel 9:7
“And David said unto him, fear not, for I will surely shew thee kindness for Jonathan thy father’s sake and will restore thee all the land of Saul thy father, and thou shalt eat bread at my take continuously”.

Never make a permanent decision about a temporary situation.

God will lift you from grass to grace, in the name of Jesus.

FIRE SCRIPTURE: 2 Samuel 9:1-13

Spiritually, Co-debar means no pasture or a wilderness, according to 2 Samuel 17:27-28. It means no word or no communication because it is a wilderness. Physically, Co-debar means without order, no leader or shepherd, a rebellious place, a barren land, a lonely place, etc.

There are so many people living lonely lives even though they are in the midst of life’s hustle and bustle. They are lonely and dislocated. Such people are living in Lo-debar.

Lo-debar was a town of forgotten people. This was where Mephibosheth, the son of Jonathan, who was David’s best friend, was living before King David fetched him out of the place. In Co-debar dwelt the lost and outcasts of the society.

Beloved, please note this important fact: people living in Lo-debar were not there because they were at fault or guilty of one offence or another. Mephibosheth was one of such people. He was not there because of something he did wrong. It was never his fault to have faced all the odds he faced in life.

A prince that was supposed to be living in the palace but alas, he found himself in a place where there was no pasture, no word or communication. Instead of living in a world of affluence and abundance, he found himself in a barren land and a place without order. So also, beloved, it might not be your fault that you are passing through what you are experiencing now. It might be barrenness, financial challenges, lateness in marriage, sickness, etc.

However, there is good news for you. Matthew 1 1 :28 says, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Jesus is calling you today to come out of your Lo-debar.



1.   Every satanic decision against my progress, be nullified, in the name of Jesus.

2.   Blood of Jesus, redeem me, in the name of Jesus.

3.   Thou power of God, penetrate my spirit, soul and body, in the name of Jesus.


4.   Lord, promote me spiritually and physically, in the name of Jesus.

5.   Every enemy of the perfect will of God for my life, die, in the name of Jesus.

6.   Anointing of joy and peace, replace heaviness and sorrowing my life, in the name of Jesus.

7.   Any foundational bondage limiting my progress, break, in the name of Jesus.
