TOPIC: Overcoming The Storms Of Life (II)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Isaiah 38, Isaiah 39, Isaiah 40, Galatians 2:11-21, Galatians 3:1-9, Psalm 107:33-43
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Psalm 27:1-14 (KJV)
1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
4 One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.
5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.
7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
8 When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek.
9 Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.
11 Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.

PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
EVERY STRANGE FIRE FORCING YOU OUT OF GOD’S PRESENCE IS QUENCHED NOW, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
Today’s memory verse is a highlight of what the believer goes through because of his faith in Christ. The devil will stop at nothing to make sure he frustrates the believer. The battle line has already been drawn. What the believer ought to do is to confront the challenges the enemy brings his way and conquer them through the power and grace of God, and glorifying God through the challenges. The believer is not expected to sit down and begin to grumble, murmur or complain. The Bible says that the righteous is as bold as a lion. You must be strong and courageous.
Abraham believed God well enough to leave his father’s house and to go to a land where God would show him (Genesis 12:1). Abraham believed God well enough to give Him his promised son. The Bible says in Romans 4:20: “He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God.” Beloved, did the promise fail? No, it did not because God never fails. Abraham kept giving glory to God even when the situation seemed hopeless. He believed God well enough and was willing to sacrifice his son Isaac to God. The Bible says that he knew that God was able to raise the dead back to life (Romans 4:17). Did God eventually allow Abraham to sacrifice Isaac? No, He didn’t. It was a test in Abraham’s storm and he passed it.
Dear reader, like Abraham, we need to build our faith on Christ the Rock. Every other ground is sinking sand; only Christ is the solid foundation. In the storm of life, hold on tight to Jesus. No matter how heavy the burden of pain you bear, it is better with Christ in it. Jesus already told us in John 15:18-20 that, “If the world hates you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you…. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you…”
Be encouraged today – that storm you are facing is for a greater glory and you will surely testify, in the name of Jesus.
- Arrows of the wicked tormenting my faith, backfire, in the name of Jesus.
- No weapon fashioned against my testimonies shall prosper, in the name of Jesus.
- Anointing to overcome, overshadow my life now, in the name of Jesus.
- Satanic wind blowing away my blessings, receive confusion and backfire, in the name of Jesus.
- Every domestic rage against my favour, die, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, arise and show Yourself in my storm today, in the name of Jesus.
- Every challenge that has brought sorrow into my life shall become testimony, in the name of Jesus.
