Theme: THE STRONG AND MIGHTY
Memorise:
I am Alpha and Omega the beginning
and the ending, saith the Lord, which
is, and which was, and which is to
come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:8
Read: Psalm 24:7-10 (KJV)
“7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates;
and be ye lift up, ye everlasting
doors; and the King of glory shall
come in.
8 Who is this King of glory? The Lord
strong and mighty, the Lord mighty
in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates;
even lift them up, ye everlasting
doors; and the King of glory shall
come in.
10 Who is this King of glory? The
Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory.
Selah.”
Message:
It should be surprising to see
children of God cringing in the
presence of forces that threaten not
only their physical lives, but also
relationships with their Father in
heaven. This attitude is unlike that of
Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in
Babylon. These young Hebrew men
knew their God to be strong and
mighty, and they were bold enough
to declare it to the absolute dictator,
king Nebuchadnezzar.This is what is
expected of us as children of the
Most High God.
In the testimony of the Psalmist in
our Bible reading for today, we read
of him speaking about the God who
is strong and mighty in battle. This
God has never lost any battle. Like I
have preached on many occasions,
this God is a war-Lord. He is more
effective than any Chief of Naval
staff when it comes when it comes to
offensive air battles. This was proven
in the battle he fought on behalf of
the children of Israel under the
leadership of Joshua:
“ And it came to pass, as they fled
from before Israel, and were in the
going down to Bethhoron, that the
Lord cast down great stones from
heaven upon them unto Azekah, and
they died: they were more which
died with hailstones than they whom
the Children of Israel slew with the
sword.” Joshua 10:11
Beloved, I am pleased to announce
to you that if truly you are born-
again, your God is strong and mighty.
Hence, you have no reason to fear
any attack of the enemies. The Bible
says:
“So shall they fear the name of the
Lord from the west, and his glory
from the rising of the sun. When the
enemy shall come in like a flood, the
spirit of the Lord shall lift up a
standard against him. And the
Redeemer shall come to Zion, and
unto them turn from transgression in
Jacob, saith the Lord.” Isaiah
59:19-20
There is something very important to
note in the above scripture; “ .. unto
them that turn from transgression..”
The Lord, strong and mighty can only
fight on behalf of those who have
reconciled with Him through genuine
repentance. Sin exposes an individual
to enemy attack. Therefore, I appeal
to someone reading this devotional;
ensure that your life is void of
iniquity which makes you vulnerable
to the attack of the enemy. Our God
is strong and mighty. Those who
have walked with Him sincerely have
this as their testimony. It will be
yours too in Jesus’ name.
Prayer Point:
Father, please show yourself strong
and mighty in my life so that my
enemies may fear, repent and
surrender to your Almightiness.
Bible in one year: Matthew 1:1-4:22,
Job 10:6-17
