THEME: GOD WILL TROUBLE YOUR TROUBLERS.
TEXT: 1 KINGS 18
MEMORY VERSE: “I will destroy also all the beasts thereof from beside the great waters; neither shall the foot of man trouble them anymore, nor the hoofs of the beasts trouble them.” (Ezekiel 32:13)
There are many people who take delight in persecuting the people of God. God is always favorably disposed towards dealing with them. Therefore, whoever troubles the people of God shall receive many troubles. God does not fold His hands and watch the enemies to trouble His people. He only allows them when they will serve as raw materials and stepping stones to your testimonies. So, if the enemy has been ravaging your life, do not despair any further. Reprieve is coming your way. God says he will trouble them that trouble you.
Of course, Ahab and his wife troubled Israel though they turned back to accuse Prophet Elijah of being the one that troubled Israel. (1 kings 18:17-18). At the end of the day, the enemies of righteousness received more troubles than they bargained for. There is no doubt about it: because you are a chosen of the Lord, those that trouble you shall be troubled. I do not know exactly the man or woman that is troubling your life, career, business, marriage, but I am convinced that many troubles await them.
Sing praise/worship with one or two warfare songs. Pray and thank God and then ask for forgiveness of sins and take the following prayer points.
1. O Lord my Father, give trouble to them that trouble me, in Jesus’ name.
2. Any trouble lying in wait for me, scatter in Jesus' name.
3. Any power (mention them- whether ancestral, marine spirit, witchcraft powers) troubling my life, receive destruction, in Jesus' name.
4. Any kingdom or shrine or temple or coven of witches and wizards planning to bring trouble upon my life, let them be destroyed, in Jesus' name.
