TOPIC: LIFE IS A BATTLE
Fire Scripture: 1 Chronicle 4:9-10
TODAY OUTLINE: MFM DAILY DEVOTIONAL 8TH MARCH 2021 TODAY MESSAGE
Life is a battle and as we overcome one battle, another emerges. Psalm 34:19 captures this fact of life vividly. It tells us that many are the afﬂictions of the righteous but the Lord delivers him out of them all. Righteousness does not immune a person from the battle of life. Both the righteous and the sinners experience the battle of life, but the righteous, according to the promise of God, shall overcome all his battles.
The battles of life come in different shapes, colours, degrees and in diverse manners. They do not discriminate and have no regard for your status. The battle of Jabez started from his birth. His mother placed a curse upon him the day he was born by giving him a name which put him at a disadvantage before his siblings and relatives. Jabez means sorrow. It was not clear why his mother gave him that name but from the prayers he prayed, we saw that his life was miserable until he called on God who delivered him.
Joseph was specially loved by his father, Jacob and had no battle until he was 17 years old. His destiny and star positioned him for a battle which lasted for 13 years before he got a reprieve from God. He moved from the pit to the hand of the Midianites, and then to Egypt, and to prison and ﬁnally to the palace as the second in command in Egypt.
His battle came to fulﬁl the purpose of God for his life, using his own blood brothers’ envy and jealousy. God sometimes could be the one behind our battles. The battle of Job was God’s test of will and satan’s blackmail against Job. Job was vindicated and God was gloriﬁed. There is no battle without a reason. The earlier we decode the cause of our battles, the better for us.
The major battle of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ came at the latter part of his life and because He overcame, we have victory over every battle that confronts our lives. There is no victory without a battle and there is no battle without a cause. The reason why God sometimes allows battle to confront us is to glorify Himself in our lives.
Battles are not meant to break us but to give us breakthroughs. When we overcome our battles, our faith becomes stronger and our spiritual stamina waxes stronger. Are you being confronted by any battle today? It is for God to be gloriﬁed.
Memory Verse: 2 Corinthians 10:4 For the weapons of ourwarfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.
Motivational Quote: In every battle lies a hidden breakthrough and the greater the battle the more powerful the testimony
Prophetic Word: The evil strong man raging against you shall fall, in the name of Jesus.
Hymn: More Than Conquerors Are We
1. Conquerors and overcomers now are we,
Thro’ the precious blood of Christ we’ve victory,
If the Lord be for us, we can never fail:
Nothing ‘gainst his mighty pow’r can e’er prevail.
Conquerors are we,thro’ the blood, thro’ the blood;
God will give us victorythro’ the blood, thro’ the blood,
Thro’ the Lamb for sinners slain,
Yet who lives and reigns again,
More than conquerors are we.
More than conquerors are we.
2. In the name of Israel’s God we’ll onward press,
Overcoming sin and all unrighteousness;
Not to us, but unto him the praise shall be
For salvation and for blood bought victory
1. Every witchcraft battle assigned to disgrace me, backfire, in the name of Jesus.
2. Troublers of my Israel, my God shall trouble you, in the name of Jesus
3. Holy Ghost, arise and defend Your name in my life, in the name of Jesus.
4. Whoever is calling my head for evil, carry your load, in the name of Jesus.
5. Every evil conspiracy against my life, scatter unto desolation, in the name of Jesus.
6. Father, arise by Your name Jehovah and ordain terrifying noises against my enemies, in the name of Jesus.
7. Weapons of the wicked, turn against your owners, in the name of Jesus.
