MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:A life that is without battles can only be found in the graveyard, but as long as you are alive, you will experience all kinds of battles. With God on your side, victory is yours.
PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:EVERY WARFARE AGAINST YOUR LIFE SHALL BE SCATTERED.
The MESSAGE:God has wonderful lessons for you in today’s devotional. You will learn how to escape the arrow of disgrace. When you pray against the arrow of disgrace, no power will succeed in corrupting your glory.A sister came to me crying, “I don’t know what is happening to me. Whenever I am struggling to grow in the Lord, a certain man would come and mess everything up.” I said to her, “No. It is not the man messing you up; you have a viper disgracing you.” Beloved, maybe your own is the viper of arrogance, pride or strife, hidden inside of you. Many have fallen and never rose again; as a result of this, the viper and the devil came to their funeral ceremony singing song of victory.
One of the best prophets that God has ever sent to Nigeria was a victim of the viper. When you talk about prophetic anointing, it is difficult to find an equal to this fellow.
He was so good that if you brought a mad man before him and his problem was demonic, this prophet would tell you what area of the body harboured the evil materials troubling the man; and before your eyes, he would call them out, collect them and throw them away. They would appear physically and instantly, the mad man would be jumping up and rejoicing.
He exhibited the power of God anywhere he went. But, he had a viper which was women, who eventually messed him up completely. When he died, there was no pastor at his burial. It was a real viper of disgrace.
There was also a certain woman, whose husband was a very powerful evangelist. Before they commenced any crusade, she would lead praise worship; and miracles would be happening even before the man of God came on stage. But then, this woman started sleeping with their landlord who was an Alhaji.
Before you knew it, she had travelled to Mecca and she became an Alhaja. The viper of disgrace in her life had manifested!No wonder the Bible says, “Let him who thinketh he stands, take heed, lest he falls.” You must pray until stubborn pursuers are put to shame and brought to confusion.
- Power to disgrace every bird of darkness, come upon me now, in the name of Jesus.
- My life, become untouchable to every bird of darkness, in the name of Jesus.
- All my virtues swallowed by satanic birds, be vomited, in the name of Jesus.
- The altar of the Lord is here, let every satanic altar around me be scattered, in the name of Jesus.
- Time, you shall not hurt my destiny, in the name of Jesus.
- Any power affecting the testimony of the Lord in my life, fall down and die, in the name of Jesus.
- Whether the world goes up or down, my harvest shall continue to prosper, in the name of Jesus.
