Daily Devotional for September 28, 2007

CHRISTIAN DEVOTIONAL


And Deborah said unto Barak, Up;
for this is the day in which the LORD hath delivered Sisera into thine hand:
is not the LORD gone out before thee?
Judges 4:14


Arise, oh daughters of Zion and sing songs of rejoicing for the Lord your God shall move mightily for you. “Get up” says the Lord. Shout, make a loud noise for the Lord your God is in the midst of you. URGENT PRAYER REQUEST. We are urging every blood washed, Holy Ghost filled intercessor to begin to earnestly pray for ICEMINISTRIES, INT’L as the enemy is sending out his darts in an all out attempt to cripple and hinder the work set before us. We solicit your prayers.


Our devotional today finds Deborah, a prophetess of the Lord who was judge in Israel at this appointed time with a word for Barak concerning the intent of the Lord to give the enemy into his hands. A word sent to Barak to motivate him to positive militant action because victory is assured by the Captain of the Hosts “for this is the day in which the LORD…” has gone to battle before you and has already accomplished your warfare. I hear the Lord speaking to someone right now, ‘Up! Arise and shake yourself from slumber for I have given your enemies into your hand.” An assurance of victory has come from the throne room of the Most High declaring that you shall prosper in that which you have gone out to do.

The period of complacency and passivity has passed and now you are being urged to get UP and begin to fight the good fight of faith, trusting in the captain of the Hosts. When God declares victory over the enemy rest assured that there is no weapon formed that shall prosper against you; no missile that the enemy sends can penetrate the barrier of the standard that is raised in the realm of the Spirit against them. It shall not prosper but you shall prosper in that which the Lord has mandated for your situation and you shall obliterate the weapons of the enemy. Hallelujah! I feel a shout of victory coming on as I see in the Spirit that the Lord has already dispatched His warring angels to fight against the enemies of your soul, breaking and pulling down the barricades which were set to hinder your progress. Glory to God in the highest! You have already overcome in the realm of the Spirit and the manifestation is about to break forth into the physical realm.

“UP” Get up and take your stand. UP! Begin to worship and praise the God of your salvation “for this is the day in which the LORD hath delivered Sisera into thine hand” Your enemy might not be named Sisera but by whatever name is attached to it, know that this day - The Lord has delivered him into your hands. This day the Lord has ordained your victory over that persistent enemy that has been touching all your stuff. Not tomorrow but this day, I hear the Lord saying, “If you only believe and will rise up, this day I shall deliver your enemy into your hand. Glory, Hallelujah, for it’s not by might and it’s not by any power that we possess independent of God but it’s by the authority of His Spirit that we shall accomplish our warfare. Not by any other source but by Him and through Him, therefore be encouraged and begin to give thanks.


This day, receive news that your victory is assured!


Word For Today: For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. - 1st John 5:4 – It takes our faith to step out on nothing and to believe that something will come.

UNSAVED DEVOTIONAL


But the LORD said unto Samuel,
Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature;
because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth;
for man looketh on the outward appearance,
but the LORD looketh on the heart.
1st Samuel 16:7


I’ve felt your hurt, I’ve seen your tears, I know the pain you’ve been carrying inside. Today, I am here to take away that pain and dry those tears for I am the Lord your God and it is not My desire to see you suffer any longer. I have healing available for you this day, reach out to Me and I will take away your pain and I will take the memory of the pain so that it will be as if it never happened. Come to Me, so that the healing can begin.”


The things that people think and say about us can be damaging to our self-esteem and our personal confidence. In fact, if you ask people who were successful students but who were victims of peer on peer bullying or teasing what they remember the most about school, most will tell you about the trauma of the teasing. The truth is that verbal abuse or simply being told over and over again that you are a failure or that your shortcomings are insurmountable has a way of inflicting irreversible damage on the mind. Even though people may fail to recognize it, emotional damage that they sustained during childhood and the years of their youth play a large role in their adult life. Some people become tough and hardened as a result of years of emotional pain while others end up with social issues which cause them to find it difficult to accept compliments and feelings of success. Shyness may also develop along with a lack of confidence, low self-esteem or a variety of different shielding mechanisms such as excessive humor. The fact of the matter is that there are many who are walking around with the wounds that others have inflicted upon them.

In our devotional scripture for today, God says that unlike people who focus on the outward appearance, those things that can be seen, and that appear to limit a person, He looks upon the heart. Therefore, to God that is the criterion that He uses whenever He wants to choose a person. Not their past mistakes, not their physical deficiencies but their heart. Today, I encourage you to release your heart to God for Him to heal, cleanse and purify. He is the healer and so for that reason there is no need for you to walk around wounded.


He is waiting to heal you today


Word For Today: A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones. – Proverbs 17:22 – Nothing will soothe the heart quicker than the medicine of the Holy Spirit, applied in love.
