Song

 

Victory is mine 2x

Victory is mine, today

I tell Satan, get behind me,

Victory is mine, forever more, Alleluia.

 

That will be your song whether the devil likes or not in Jesus Name. Amen!

O Lord and Our God, we humble ourselves before Your throne, with our hands and our voice lifted up to heaven, we shout Alleluia in the highest. We adore You, You are the Alpha and Omega. We have searched from the North to the South and from the West to the East, there is no one like Thee, with the twenty four elders in heaven, we worship You forever and ever. Amen!

In God is our rest and in Him, our promise is fulfilled. If we abide in Him and He abide in us whatsoever is our heart desires is a walk-over. Nothing will hinder us, not even the whole forces of darkness joined together, their power which is a power-less power cannot be compared to that of my Father in heaven. When we pray, our Spirit bears us witness in heaven and God looks down to bear us up.

Prov 24: 10 says, “If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small” (KJV) and the Message Bible put it this way “if you fall to pieces in a crisis, there wasn’t much to you in the first place” (TM) while the NLT says, “if you fail under pressure, your strength is too small”.

Beloved, you don’t have to leave your life to chance or else the devil will mess you up, remember what was said in 1 Pet 5:8 (we are going to compare three versions of the Bible again for better understanding)

 

“Be sober! Be on the alert! Your adversary the Devil is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for anyone he can devour”. (HCSB)

 

“Curb every passion, and be on the alert. Your great accuser, the Devil, is going about like a roaring lion to see whom he can devour”. (WEY)

“Be temperate, be vigilant; because your enemy, the devil, is prowling about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour”. (MontgomeryNT)

This is the first month in the year, you must fast and pray and cover every seconds of this year with the blood of Jesus. Don’t wait until crisis comes your way to start shouting in the “Name of the Jesus”, the verse we read said, your strength might be too small and it will surely fail you. So start early with Jesus and your assurance cover for the year is good as assured.

The Lord has given us His word that this year 2014 is our year of “Divine Favour” appropriate it to yourself and it will fulfilled in your life because the “Lord means what He says and He does what He promise”, so rest on the promise and make sure you are living right:

The land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it.” Gen. 28:13

No promise is of private interpretation: it belongs not to one saint, but to all believers. If, my brother, thou canst in faith lie down upon a promise, and take thy rest thereon, it is thine. Where Jacob “lighted,” and tarried, and rested, there he took possession. Stretching his weary length upon the ground, with the stones of that place for his pillows, he little fancied that he was thus entering into ownership of the land; and yet so it was.

He saw in his dream that wondrous ladder which for all true believers unites earth and heaven; and surely where the foot of the ladder stood he must have a right to the soil, for otherwise he could not reach the divine stairway. All the promises of God are Yea and Amen in Christ Jesus; and as He is ours, every promise is ours if we will but lie down upon it in restful faith.

Come, weary one, use thy Lord’s words as thy pillows. Lie down in peace. Dream only of Him. Jesus is thy ladder of light. See the angels coming and going upon Him between thy soul and thy God; and be sure that the promise is thine own God-given portion, and that it will not be robbery for thee to take it to thyself, as spoken specially to thee.

Safety is of the Lord, “it is one thing to lie down and another to lie down in safely”. Come, Your Father is able to make the two promises possible. Come and lie in calm repose:

I will make them to lie down safely.” Hos. 2:18

Yes, the Saints are to have peace. The passage from which this gracious word is taken speaks of peace “with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven, and with the creeping things of the ground.” This is peace with earthly enemies, with mysterious evils, and with little annoyances! Any of these might keep us from lying down, but none of them shall do so. The Lord will quite destroy those things which threaten His people: “I will break the bow and the sword, and the battle out of the earth.” Peace will be profound indeed when all the instruments of disquiet are broken to pieces.

With this peace will come rest. “So he giveth his beloved sleep.”(Ps 127:2) Fully supplied and divinely quieted, believers lie down in calm repose.

This rest will be a safe one. It is one thing to lie down, but quite another “to lie down safely.” We are brought to the land of promise, the house of the Father, the chamber of love, and the bosom of Christ: surely we may now “lie down safely.” It is safer for a believer to lie down in peace than to sit up and worry.

“He maketh me to lie down in green pastures.” We never rest till the Comforter makes us lie down.

Let me pray for you my beloved, the Lord will answer you speedily this year, please ensure that you wrestle in the place of prayer like Jacob and all your packages for the year will be fully deliver, don’t be tried,  don’t be weary, He will perfect all that concerns you. Amen!

 

Remain blessed in the Lord.
