8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Today’s Inspiration: In order to defeat the enemy’s strategies, we need the wisdom of God for tables to turn to our favor. There is power in unity in prayer and fasting like the days of Esther. It was this truth that caused the enemy to be defeated and the Jews to triumph. Esther 9:1-5.
With the wisdom of God, we can overcome the circumstances before us instead of surrendering to our plight. It seems impossible to defeat the enemy at times as his army appears invincible but with unwavering faith and perseverance, together with the wisdom of God, we can defeat him when God suddenly appears with His mighty power. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. Hebrews 13:8.
His might and majestic powers remain undaunted and will win the battle for us in His time. It is at this time of trial that we should do a reflection on ourselves and perceive that the powers that are implanted within us be greater than the might of external forces. We must know that the powers and might of the principalities cannot match that of our creator who is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. 1 John 4:4.
Satan is a liar from the very beginning of time. John 8:44. We need not fear but break the power of lies implanted in us at the time of trial. If we don’t guard our hearts according to Proverbs 4:23, our iniquity which is a deviation from God’s plan become part of the DNA structure that we pass onto our children and children’s children. To break this cycle, we must allow the Holy Spirit who inhabits our human spirit to connect us with the heart of God to attain strategies, wisdom and words of knowledge to overthrow the lies of the enemy in our lives. We need to understand the faith and authority God has bestowed upon us to accomplish success in our warfare against Satan. There is power in discernment.
We must dare to confront the enemy in our prayers. Our Battle can only be won in the spirit before physical manifestation can take place.
It was the power of words ‘If I perish I perish,’ the knowledge of her favor from the King and the authority of the position she holds as well as the wisdom of God that brought about the success of her mission to save the Jews.
No success can be achieved without winning victories in the spirit. It was only after winning in the spirit, that the King’s edict could be changed to the favor of the Jews. Esther 4:16, 15, Esther 8:8, 11, 16-17. It takes the power of prayer and fasting as a Body to break the spirit of slumber to thwart the plans of the enemy.
Complacency opens the door to the enemy to creep in to destroy us and our people. We need undivided loyalty and dedication of watchman like Mordecai and the sphere of influence Esther has to break the bonds of people causing many conversions that bring glory to God’s name. V17.
We pray that our Battle in the spirit against covid-19 be won soon. We need a miraculous intervention. May God surprise us with His miraculous power soon! God be praised!
