THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...
DATE: MONDAY DECEMBER 12TH, 2016.
TEXT: Psalm 107:16, Isaiah 45:2
THEME: THE IRON GATE WILL OPEN ON ITS OWN ACCORD
“When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.” (Acts 12:10)
Uncountable numbers of people are held in spiritual prisons without them being aware. They wake up every day and go about their business as if nothing is holding them. Unknown to them, there are chains on both their wrists and ankles and so, cannot make any headway in life. All their labour from morning till night usually brings nothing. The Iron Gate leading to the city which stood as a barrier against Peter’s freedom was spiritually dismantled. The spiritual controls the physical. The Iron Gate was first dismantled spiritually and the angel of God was drafted to the scene to ensure that the spiritual would take control of the physical.
Spiritual iron gates can come in the form of limitations, spiritual embargoes, failures, disappointments, rising/fall, and failures at the edge of breakthroughs and so on. Have you considered the way things have been going on in your life in the recent past? The business that refuses to grow, having a higher qualification but always getting a job offer less than the qualification, delay in payments etc. It is most likely that a spiritual iron gate is impeding your advancement. It could be the ancestral, yoke and bondage, generational yoke, inherited family yoke, collective captivity, limitations, hindrances and spiritual embargoes etc that have hindered you from making progress in life. No matter they form they take, God can draft an angel to the scene like He did in Peter’s case. But remember, something provoked heaven to send an angel. That is exactly what you are expected to do.
Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:
1. Any spiritual Iron Gate standing against me, I command you to open, in Jesus’ name.
2. Any obstacle standing as an Iron Gate against my advancement, I command you to be uprooted by the angel of God in Jesus’ name.
3. Any iron-like age-long yoke and bondage upon my life and destiny; be uprooted by the anointing, in Jesus’ name.
4. Any spiritual iron gate mounted against our G. O, our mummy in the Lord and The Lord’s Chosen ministry; be upended by the Holy Ghost bulldozer, in Jesus name.
