Topic: No Speedy Disaster
“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (John 1: 5 NIV)
Scripture Reading: Judges 4: 1-10
Focus: “And the children of Israel cried unto the LORD: for he had nine hundred chariots of iron; and twenty years he mightily oppressed the children of Israel.” (Judges 4: 3)
Our Focal Scripture speaks of the nine hundred chariots of iron with which Jabin terrorized the children of Israel. One major reason why chariots of iron were used in Bible times, was the rapid movements they were capable of. It was easy for soldiers with iron chariots to go ahead of their enemies. Put differently, iron chariots were symbolic of evil that travelled faster than its prey. Iron chariots were vehicles of speedy disaster.
Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: in 2021, you will not be a victim of speedy disaster. You will not be counted amongst those who went down a slippery slope at an alarming speed. You will not be caught in the web of evil that will overtake you without announcement. You will not be caught in the midst of troubles that will overtake you at an alarming speed. You will not be a victim of evil that will travel faster than you can.
The children of Israel may have made attempts to escape from the iron chariots of Jabin, but because the iron chariots had the advantage of speed, they ended up being overtaken by the negativity they wanted to escape from. Hear me as I hear the Lord: you will not be overtaken by the same challenges you are trying hard to escape from. You will not be a victim of the troubles you are trying hard to avoid. You will not be overtaken by evil.
Jesus did not pay a high price for you, so that the enemy can speedily cause you to go down. Jesus redeemed you so that you can have life and have it more abundantly. Jesus redeemed you so that the enemy will not overtake you with negativity. Live in the consciousness of the finished work of Christ in your life, and no power of hell will overtake your destiny. Refuse to be a victim of speedy negativity.
Remember, evil that comes with speed, is not part of God’s plan for your life. Resist the enemy; refuse to be overtaken by negativity.
No evil will overtake me, in Jesus’ name!
