Senior Pastor’s Devotional
Day 24 Movement Control Order – “Strategic Psalm 91 Watch”
I feel that the Lord is saying some specific words for us.
The Lord’s Word said in Hebrews 12:27 says
“The words, “Once more,” signify the removal of what can be shaken— that is, created things— so that the unshakable may remain.”
This means “YOU” are included in this shaking but you do not need to worry over that because it simply means what you have built (business; jobs; or whatever else that have fallen) is weak and cannot stand the test. As a child of God, do not worry – look not at the debris of this shaking but look to Him, the Provider. As you do so, He will help you to rebuild – that which cannot be shaken! It will be the Lord’s favour. Take comfort in that assurance and keep trusting and focusing on Him.
Secondly, I feel the Lord saying – “You have been seeking me for the past weeks because you NEED me but the time has come where you will seek me because you LOVE me! You will call Him – Abba Father and this is a breakthrough for many of you who had lost your earthly father when you were young or you have a earthly father who may not have been the best example for you to look up to – but today – look to your Father in heaven!
Some of you have been saying, “I hope that things will quickly settle down so that I can then go back to my normal, usual way of living! The Lord will NOT have you to go back to your USUAL WAY of living and be back to square one but you should maintain what you have so built up the past weeks – time to seek Him in His Word and in prayer – and in so doing then you would have learned what the Lord has taught you to do and the lessons will not be wasted. You have been able to hear His voice because when everything is shut down – that is when your spiritual ears are opened to hear!
May we take heed of the above!
Matthew 6:9-13 – The Lord’s Prayer….continue with yesterday’s lesson.
“And help us not to yield to temptations but deliver us from the evil one.”
As we continue to look at temptation, there is no doubt that we need God “to deliver us from the evil one.
Why did Jesus teach us to pray in such a manner?
We battle against the spiritual evil powers.
-Ephesians 6:10-12. (Please read)
There are 5 important truths that you must know from here:-
c. Our Enemy is formidable but not almighty and his goal is to destroy us and the purpose of Christ.
1 Peter 5:8-“Be self controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.”
-the devil has infiltrated into the system of the world. He uses the day to day things of life to tempt us.
We therefore have to be ALERT and not let our guards down.
d. As believer’s in Christ, we do not fight for Victory, we fight from victory.
-Colossians 2:15-“And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.”
-1 John 4:4-“You dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”
e. Our weapons are spiritual, not physical.
Please read out 2 Cor. 10:3-5.
What are the spiritual weapons that God has given to us?
Prayers; Fasting; The Word; The Name of Jesus; Declaring the Blood of Jesus; Praise and Worship; Praying in the spirit; Standing in Faith; Living a holy and righteous life – all of these
are the God given spiritual weapons for us to use,
Yes Lord. Deliver us from the evil one!
