THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...
DATE: FRIDAY DECEMBER 16TH, 2016.
TEXT: Joshua 10:13, 2nd Chronicles 32:7-8
THEME: GOD DOES NOT WORK WITH NUMBERS
“And the Lord said unto Gideon, The people are yet too many.” (Judges 7:4)
Gideon gathered all the people that were with him – numbering thousands, in order to fight the enemies of his people. His thinking could have been that having a great multitude of fighters would win them the battle. But God told him that the number of men with him was far too many and urged him to prune it down; lest he would believe that wars are won with human strength. Even at that, he never knew that some of the men were afraid to go to battle and so, would have disappointed him and the nation he was fighting for. But by God’s word, he pruned them down to about three hundred men and went to the battle. At the end; God gave him victory over his enemies with just those few men.
God does not need multitude to fight for you. He needed only Joshua to command the sun to stand still at Gibeon for the battle to swing in favour of the Israelites. Also Aaron and Hur only needed to hold the hand of Moses for Israel to discomfit their enemies. Maybe you are worried that you do not have connection – nobody to help you, nobody from your town or village to represent your interest, no money to fund that project or nobody to send you to school or help you get a job – to fight for you. What is the battle that is going on in your life, business, marriage, career etc? No matter how fierce and hot it is, the Lord can fight for you and give you victory. What He needs is that you trust Him; put your confidence and trust in Him and pray fervently and victory shall be yours. He has done it for many. He will also do it for you. The battle that is standing against you can take only a single angel of the Chosen to be won. It is just about putting your trust in God so that He will fight for you. Do not put your confidence in human beings because the arm of flesh will fail you.
Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:
1. O thou God of the Chosen, I put my trust in you. Every battle that I am passing through, fight all my battles and give me victory, in Jesus' name.
2. Any secret battle going on against my life, end in victory over my enemies, in Jesus' name.
3. I decree that no weapon formed against me shall prosper, in Jesus' name.
4. Uphold our G. O, fight for him and give him victory on all fronts, in Jesus' name.
5. Any politician or government functionary using his office to cripple evangelism in The Lord’s Chosen, by the power in the name of the God of Chosen, we remove you from office, in Jesus' name.
