Verse Of The Day : See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant. Jeremiah 1:10
Thought of The Day : With God on our side, we can alter Satan’s operations and wicked activities in our lives.
LISTEN : When God gives a message to anyone, He backs it up with His unfailing presence. Beloved, God anointed us for exploits. He empowers us for victory. No matter how small our strength is, we can do more when we cooperate with God (Isaiah 40:29-31). He increases our strength when we bury our weaknesses in Him through faith, obedience and humility. Whom He called He qualifies and empowers for exploits. God called Jeremiah a prophet to the nations and over kingdoms. In his time, he was one of the major prophets of Israel. He was called to declare God’s word to the people concerned. Though, he resisted his call initially and argued that he was not qualified for the task. However, God assured him of His presence and grace for the assignment. The Bible says,
“But the Lord said to me, Do not say, I am a child: for wherever I send you, you are to go, and whatever I give you orders to say, you are to say. Have no fear because of them: for I am with you, to keep you safe, says the Lord.”
Jeremiah 1:7-8 (BBE).
God gave him a specific and strategic assignments – the Bible says, “See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant”
Jeremiah was charged with the mandates to uproot what must be uprooted; destroy what must be destroyed; scatter what must be scattered; build what must be built; and plant what must be planted. Notice that, he was not going to do this assignment with anything else, but with words from God. My dear, it’s the same word that we Christians have today. God’s word is the sword of the spirit (Ephesians 6:17b). We fight Satan and his agents with it. We pull down strongholds and plant God’s will in the heart of men through the word. Beloved, you’re loaded with power for exploits and victory. So, rise up and take your rightful place and resist every move and attack of the enemy over your life today. Be wise!
What Should We Do With This Message?
1. Resist satanic operations and activities in your life and home.
2. Confess your authority in Christ Jesus with confidence.
3. Make specific and strategic decrees against forces of darkness in your land.
4. Speak into existence by faith anything the devil has killed in your life or the lives of others.
Prayer : Almighty God! Power belongs to You. Therefore, I uproot, destroy and scatter satanic activities and deposits in my life today; and in their place, I plant seed of greatness and blessings, in Jesus ’ name, amen!
A Word Of Blessing : Today I speak on your life, every plant that is not planted by God is uprooted now. I therefore plant seed of greatness, favour, strength and fear of God in your life, in Jesus ’ name, amen!
Reflection : God anointed us for exploits. He empowers us for victory. So, rise and act today!
