THEME: CHRIST OUR STRONGHOLD
“One who is wise can go up against the city of the mighty and pull down the stronghold in which they trust.”
-The Lord grants us wisdom and strength to win in every situation when we trust in Him. In Psalms 144:1-2 king David narrates that, “Praise be to the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle. He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me.”Despite the battles that come our way, God is in control. As the nations battle against COVID-19, economic and financial turmoil, political instability, social and religious conflicts, and other challenges that trickle down to its citizens, God is still in control. In 2 Corinthians 10:4-6 we see that, “the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.”We are called to submit our thoughts, hearts desires, emotions, feelings, challenges, families, marriages, jobs, businesses, economy, leadership, churches, governments and every thing else to God, and He will make everything crooked path straight. God calls us to be obedient to His will and shun away from all evil. In every situation we are also reminded to rejoice in the Lord, pray without ceasing and give thanks always, which is a reassurance that Christ is our shield and stronghold and He will establish our steps.
Abba Father our Lord and Savior, we thank You for Your goodness and mercy upon our lives. Thank You for this far that You have brought us and the far that You are taking us. Thank You for protecting us and shielding us from all evil. Grant us the wisdom and grace to be obedient unto Your word and walk in the light of Your salvation. Renew our minds and help us to seek first Your kingdom and Your righteousness. Bless us indeed Oh Lord and enlarge our territories. May Your mighty hand always be with us that You may keep us from all evil; that may cause us pain. Deliver us from all strongholds and wicked schemes of the evil one, and grant us victory in all situations. We break every accusation against us, our families, relationships, marriages, churches, businesses, work places, future, nation and entire world by Your precious blood Jesus. You are our Advocate Jesus fight for us and grant us rest in all situations. Set us free dear Jesus. Our Father who art in heaven; hallowed be Your name; Your Kingdom come; Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptations but deliver us from evil; for thine is the Kingdom the power and the glory; forever and ever. Amen
