THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...
DATE: TUESDAY DECEMBER 6TH, 2016.
TEXT : Isaiah 59:1-3, 2 Chronicles 15:2
TOPIC: THE LORD IS STILL WITH YOU
“And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the Lord be with us, why then is all this befallen us...” (Judges 6:13)
There are some kinds of heavy yokes and bondage that grind people’s destiny to a standstill. In that case, nothing seems to be happening in their lives no matter how much they try. Nevertheless, they see the situations they pass through as being contrary to what the word of God says concerning them prompting them to ask such questions as, “God, are you still there?” This was the situation that the Israel of Gideon’s generation found themselves. Has the situation of things in your life turned upside down and you are hungry in the midst of plenty and therefore asking the same questions that Gideon asked? Possibly you have been praying without receiving answers to the point you have become tired and frustrated.
We need to reconsider the circumstances that landed the Israel of Gideon’s generation into the trouble they found themselves: They did evil in the sight of God. Even at other times when they sinned, God handed them over to their enemies for varying periods of time. Have you evaluated the situation of hardship you are passing through and it is not linked with sin as was the case of the Midianites. Search yourself and make the necessary amendments.
Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:
1. In any way that I have played into the hands of the devil and have become his lawful captive because of my sin; with the blood of Jesus I obtain freedom, in Jesus' name.
2. Whatever is not working well in my life because of sin, by the covenant of God upon our fathers of faith, receive fresh impetus to work well, in Jesus' name.
3. Any channel of attack which the enemy is exploiting in my life through sin, with the blood of Jesus Christ I close the channel, in Jesus' name.
4. Every closed door against me because of sin, with the blood of Jesus I obtain mercy. Let the door open by fire, in Jesus' name.
Any power assigned to hinder the manifestation of God’s anointing; receive rebuke, in Jesus' name. Possess our G. O by your Spirit and power, in Jesus' name.
