PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
HEAVEN MUST MAKE WAR AGAINST YOUR PROBLEMS TODAY.
This is undoubtedly your year of divine exploits and destiny fulfillment. God has started something new from the beginning of this year. He will lead you continually until His purposes are accomplished in your life.
No matter what happens, light comes after darkness. God has a word of comfort for you in today’s devotional. As far as problems are concerned, there is always an upside to every downside. The downside may look ugly; but, it is a pointer to a corresponding upside. The fact that there is a valley reminds you that there is a mountain nearby. When you go lower in life, there is an equal opportunity, if discovered, to go higher. Any season that is low has behind it, a season that is upbeat. If you are presently grappling with your dry season, you should be reminded that a season of refreshing is near. The Bible tells us that “weeping may endure for the night, but joy cometh in the morning.”
Here, the Bible identifies two seasons of life: The Morning and Night. The night may be dark, but the dawn of a new day will erase the clouds of darkness. No matter how long your season of weeping lasts, the morning of joy is at hand. Hence, those who mourn should take cognizance of the fact that a new morning of singing and dancing is at their doors.
I have a word here for those who are complaining that their nights of weeping are extremely long: the advent of a bright morning will make every trauma to pale into insignificance. How can we best appreciate the brightness of a morning without an opportunity to compare it with the darkness of the night? If there were no nights of weeping, men and women will not be thankful for mornings of rejoicing. Without test, there will be no testimony. Those who are in tears are being awaited with seasons of exhilarating joy. If you do not struggle with tears, you cannot savour the outburst of happiness.
The next time the skyline of your emotions is very dark, you must remind yourself that the sunshine of joy will soon be released upon you. Your downside will prepare a platform for your upside. Beloved, weeping may endure for a night; but your morning of joy is at hand.
1. O Lord, let my enemies be confounded and troubled, in Jesus’ name.
2. I frustrate every witchcraft exchange of my virtues, in Jesus’ name.
3. Every assembly of the violent men, scatter, in the name of Jesus.
1. Anything that has been planted in my life by witchcraft, come out now, in the name of Jesus.
2. Lord, break down the hedges of the wicked and bring their strongholds to ruin, in the name of Jesus.
3. Every witchcraft seed in my life, be roasted, in the name of Jesus.
4. I shall not be afraid of the terror by night nor of the arrow that flieth by day, in the name of Jesus.
