(Day 1 of the 3 Days Fasting/Prayer)
Scripture Reading: Judges 6:1-16
Today we kick start our three days fasting and prayer. At this time in Israel’s history, many Israelites ran away from their home because of the wickedness of their enemies. Their enemies were eating the fruits of their labour. This is not too different from the experiences of some believers today. Like the Israelites we might have experienced a kind of exodus (liberation) in the past, but here the enemies have taken charge again. We have seen some believers abandoning homes because of the activities of their enemies. Some report strange movement in their compound at night or quiet time. Others report seeing or hearing mysterious sounds and frightening apparitions. Some Christians don’t go to the village anymore for fear of being attacked by witches and wizards in their locality. The condition of the Israelites worried Gideon, just as it is disturbing you right now. A day came when heaven brought a prophetic message to Gideon through an angel, just as God is bringing you this prophetic message through DSD. In all those difficult years God was with Gideon, so also even in this valley of affliction, God is with you. Do not be afraid; IT IS TIME TO RISE. The angel called Gideon a mighty warrior. Warriors are made to fight. For this purpose, God has prepared your hands for battle and fingers for war. Child of God, enough of going from one miracle centre to solution centre, to prophesy centre, to healing centre. IT IS TIME TO RISE, God is with you, and you are a mighty warrior in Christ Jesus. Stand your ground in holiness and faith, resist that devil that has held you and your family bound for years. Take note that you have been divinely commissioned with power and authority to liberate your family and town from that evil. God is saying to you as to Gideon, “Go in the strength you have and save Israel (put your own name) out of Midian’s hand…” God has filled us with His power; today He is calling you and I to save our families. He is raising up armies through us to combat the agents of darkness. IT IS TIME TO RISE UP and take back your possessions, your health, your children, your marriage, your finances, from the enemies. Beloved, rise up in faith-filled prayer in the authority of Jesus to enforce your deliverance from the valley of affliction. Jesus has won the victory for you, all you need to do is to enforce it.
