Streams of Joy | 10 January 2022 Daily Devotional MESSAGE
In our Focal Scripture, Jesus addressed the people who were in the temple. These people had watched to see if Jesus would heal the man with the withered hand, so that they could accuse him. So they hated the idea of the miracle that was still to come. Unknown to the man with the withered hand, there were people ready to make a fuss about the miracle he was yet to receive. Jesus addressed the opposers of the miracle that was to come.
Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: every opposer of your advancement will be divinely addressed this year. Every man that says you must remain in the same level again and again, the Lord will silence them by Himself. Every satanic arrangement that has been made to deny you of your portion, the Lord will address the arrangers by Himself. Every evil voice that is speaking in the ears of your helpers, let the Lord arise and address them.
That man may not have had the nerves to address the Pharisees and the teachers of the law that were positioned against him, but Jesus addressed them by Himself. You may not have the right words to address the people who have ganged up against you, but God Himself will speak to them in a language they will understand. God Himself will silence them with His own voice. God Himself will answer them in a way that will be fitting.
The good news is, the Pharisees and other haters and opposers were still there when the man with the withered hand received his miracle. His opposers could not oppose his miracle. In fact, his opposers became witnesses of his miracle. Hear me as I hear the Lord: your opposers are about to become witnesses of your miracle. Those that opposed you in the past year will be there to see that what they opposed has finally come to you.
Those that took stands against you in time past are about to hear from the Lord Himself. The same Jesus that silenced the opposers of the man with withered hands will silence every voice against you.
Proverbs 19:9 says: “A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.”
Declare With Me: Every evil voice speaking against me, be silenced by fire, in Jesus’ name!
