Devotional 6/11

Now, Lord our God, deliver us from his hand, so that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you, Lord, are the only God. Isaiah 37:20

When the Holy Spirit walks in, the other spirits tremble.

Are you waiting for God to heal you? Are you hoping for God to settle your debt? Are you praying for God to change a contradictory situation in your life?

I urge you to pray! When we ask God for grace, favors and deliverance, we expect Him to act not for our own sake, but for His! As I said yesterday, God wants to make His name known. It may not happen when or how we want it to happen, but God wants to glorify Himself through your situation.

Moses, and the people of Israel crossed the Red Sea on dry ground, after being in bondage for over 400 years. They defeated their enemies without laying a hand on them. God sent 10 plagues to the Egyptians, and finally swallowed Pharaoh and his chariots in the Red Sea. Before overtaking Jericho, two messengers were sent to check on territory and the Bible says Rahab told the men Jericho is afraid of you, we have heard of your God! (Josh. 6:10-11)

It‘s interesting how our God was known in Jericho for His mighty deeds. The people of Jericho feared the God and the people of Israel! This reminds me that demons tremble at the presence of the Lord (James 2:5). We as children of God have the Holy Spirit of God in us. And although we may walk oblivious to the glory which we carry, the darkness of this world recognizes His strength and power everywhere we go. Spirits recognize Jesus, like the man of Gadara and they also recognize us. The demons in the Gadarene man asked Him, why do you come to torment me before my time? (Mark 4)

Are you walking in your authority to cast out demons, heal the sick and mend the broken-hearted? It’s up to us to walk in that authority!

Let’s pray:

Thank you Lord Jesus for sending the Comforter. Thank you for giving us power, authority and freedom. I present the body of Christ to you, and ask you to convict each of us with more of your witness, boldness and authority. I thank you for working in us, through us, for us and with us. In Jesus name, Amen!
