TOPIC: Say No To Laziness (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 15 January 2023)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Genesis 43, Genesis 44, Genesis 45, Mark 15, Mark 16, Luke 1

FIRE SCRIPTURE: 2 Thessalonians 3:6-13 (KJV)

6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.

7 For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you;

8 Neither did we eat any man’s bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you:

9 Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.

10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.

11 For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.

12 Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.

13 But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.

MEMORY VERSE: “The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat. ” – Proverbs 13:4

Laziness is a dream killer.

Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit


MFM Devotional For Today 2023 MESSAGE:

The Bible affirms that God worked for six days and rested on the seventh. Jesus said, “My Father has been working until now, and I have been working” (John 5:17, NKJV). If God is hard working. what reason should anyone have not to work? God condemns laziness and it is not a virtue in His kingdom.

There are able-bodied people that have jobs to do but prefer to laze around doing nothing. Proverbs 13:4 says, “The soul of the lazy man desires, and has nothing; but the soul of the diligent shall be made rich.” The lazy man desires what hardworking people want: house, food, vacations, money for college and retirement, but his desires remain unsatisfied, while the diligent gain wealth.

How do we identify a lazy person? Here are some of the traits we can use: First, a lazy person is always full of excuses to explain away his or her idleness. For instance, a lazy person would complain of cold or heat (bad weather). Proverbs 20:4 says, “The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.” Also, in this regard a lazy person finds faults with his tools. An English proverb says that a lazy workman quarrels with his tools. Second, a lazy person loves sleep. Oversleeping and idleness lead to poverty. Proverbs 20:13 affirms this, “Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread.”

Another mark of a lazy person is failure to study the Bible and to pray. These two traits lead to spiritual hydration, powerlessness and sometimes death. Lastly, lazy persons often lack vision, goal and personal drive.

Beloved, laziness gives birth to poverty, dependence on others, begging or sponging on others, low self-esteem and dishonour. Pray the negative traits of laziness and their consequences out of your life. In 2 Thessalonians 3:10, the Bible says that anyone who would not work should also not eat. Roll up your sleeves and get to work. Double your efforts, if you have to. God will bless you with a great harvest. You will not labour in vain, in Jesus’ name.



  1. O God, arise and deliver me from the spirit of laziness, in the name of Jesus.
  2. Any power manipulating my life through excessive sleep and lame excuses, die, in the name of Jesus.
  3. Spirit of under-performance and non-achievement, release me and die, in the name of Jesus.


  1. I destroy every form of weariness and tiredness by the power in the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus
  2. Father, forgive me the sin of spiritual laziness, in the name of Jesus.
  3. Father, give me the grace and power to work and to prosper, in the name of Jesus.
  4. O God, arise and rid my life of all the consequences of laziness, in the name of Jesus.
