DAILY MEDITATION The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? The Lord is for me among those who help me; Therefore, I shall see my desire on those who hate me. Psalm 118:6-7
BIBLE READING Psalm 118, Isaiah 49:16
REFLECTIONS “When you don’t know what you have and who got your back, you always walk through this treacherous terrain of life with un certainties and emptiness in your soul”.
It is very unfortunate how religion has been able to corrupt and condition our minds through our belief systems and twisted concepts of who God is and our position in Him as believers. Do you know that many believers are still trying hard every day of their life in their Christian journey to earn God’s love and His power on their behalf to prosper in every sphere of life? When you don’t know what you have and who got your back you always walk through this treacherous terrain of life with uncertainties and emptiness in your soul. My friend, through the finish work of Christ on the cross, you have crossover from being a wanderer in obscurity into the Fathers embrace with abundance of love and grace to help you through life difficulties. Do you know that, you don’t only have God, But God have you in the palm of His hands till eternity? Hear Him and take His word to heart; Isaiah 49:16 “Behold, I have engraved you upon the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before me”. You are in God’s hands. Your whole life is engraved and encoded into the very image of God. He is in you to make the difference whiles you trust Him by faith to appropriate this awesome blessings. In the midst of adversity and rejection from men, David understood the secret of his relationship with Jehovah and therefore could affirm on the positive Psalm 118:6a “The Lord is on my side; I will not fear”. Be conscious of what you have and not what is trying to have you under bondage. When you through faith get hold of His promise to never leave you nor forsake you irrespective of your condition and how far you’ve drown your life in the sea of forgetfulness into the depth of your heart, fear loses its hold and effects on you. Your enemies to your progress are not far from you, they might be found in your own pocket. All they can do is to distract you from pursuing your God given dreams and stop you on your tracks. Set your face like a flint and run the race. What can man do to me? Think about it, they can do all the crazy stuff yet you don’t get moved nor be fazed by their doings because you are perfectly perfect in Christ and completely complete in Him to fill the vacuum man will try to create through their mischievous acts. Reject me, hate me, disown me, tarnish my image and what have you – God restores, refresh, and grant rest through it all. That must be your attitude so that you don’t die before your time in the face of your enemies. Square your shoulders, rise up from the pity party, put a smile on your face and a little swagger on your walk and pursue your God given assignment in life. Are you a leader going through difficult times in the hands of people whom you’ve helped and yet now they pushing you down into muddy waters and you feel so much embittered? Keep your head up and see the salvation of the Lord. Help is here, don’t give up the fight. Yes, the LORD is for me; he will help me. I will look in triumph at those who hate me. (Psalm 118:7 NLT) Yes, you have enemies but your help in Jesus to overcome and see the dreams and desires come to reality far outweigh the weight of the enemies baggage.
EXPONENTIAL BREAKTHROUGH PRAYERS 1. In the name of Jesus Christ I refuse to give up and give in to my enemies who multiplied themselves against me. 2. I take authority over every evil spell of fear over my mind and release by faith the soundness of heart and peace in my born again spirit. 3.
