28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
Today’s Inspiration: I hear from the Lord today that many are on the crossroad of decision, making room for the enemy to plant hopeless in their mind. This is the greatest tool of a Jezebel spirit who is determined to manipulate, dominate and control the movement of God’s people with the objective to hinder their progress. Hopelessness caused us to be discouraged and discouragement is the strongest Weapon of the enemy. In such situation, we tend to forget that power and might are in the hands of God. 2 Chronicles 20:5. We ought to know the truth that no one can withstand God’s people who are empowered by God to have authority and dominion over His created beings. Genesis 1:28.
Even when Judah was threatened, King Jehoshapat did not waver but sought the Lord by praising Him and reminding Him of His great power. He further declared that God will answer and save them when they cry out in distress. 2 Chronicles 20:5-9.
Tables turned around to Judah’s favour. The word of the Lord came to him not to fear nor be discouraged. Do not depend on the arms of the flesh but the Lord our God. Advance forward and stand firm. We can resist the enemy but it is God who will fight the battle for us. Take up your position of authority given to Jesus in Matthew 28:18. Stand firm and see the deliverance of the Lord. Just do not be afraid neither be discouraged but to face the enemy and know that the Lord be with us. V15-17.
As they obeyed, king Jehoshapat directed them to have faith in God and the prophets and they will succeed. V20. How did they win the battle? They give thanks and praise the Lord and rejoiced. As they do that, God sent the angels to win the battle.
Hence the only way to conquer hopelessness is to have faith in God, have faith in the prophets, give thanks and praises to the Lord and believe the battle is the Lord’s and He will send His angelic army to fight the battle for us. The battle is ours. Satan is just creating a mind war. As long as we have the mind of Christ, we will be confident of winning the battle.
Whether you are fighting disease, or financial challenges or relationship challenges or whatever battle, know one thing. You should never be discouraged but believe strongly that the captain of the army of God is with you and you will win the battle. Joshua was able to win every battle because he knows who He serve and that Jehovah Sabbaoth goes before Him to lead the army and not himself. Whatever you believe in your mind you will have the results. Jesus already told the Canaanite woman that she will have whatever she desires. Matthew 15:28.
May you conquer your hopelessness with this truth and receive your healing.
