Our Daily Manna July 1, 2019, ODM By Bishop Dr. Chris Kwakpovwe
TOPIC FOR TODAY: THE BATTLE IS THE LORD’S!
BASIC SCRIPTURE: DEUTERONOMY 1:21-30
Deuteronomy 1:21-30 King James Version (KJV)
21 Behold, the Lord thy God hath set the land before thee: go up and possess it, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be discouraged.
22 And ye came near unto me every one of you, and said, We will send men before us, and they shall search us out the land, and bring us word again by what way we must go up, and into what cities we shall come.
23 And the saying pleased me well: and I took twelve men of you, one of a tribe:
24 And they turned and went up into the mountain, and came unto the valley of Eshcol, and searched it out.
25 And they took of the fruit of the land in their hands, and brought it down unto us, and brought us word again, and said, It is a good land which the Lord our God doth give us.
26 Notwithstanding ye would not go up, but rebelled against the commandment of the Lord your God:
27 And ye murmured in your tents, and said, Because the Lord hated us, he hath brought us forth out of the land of Egypt, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us.
28 Whither shall we go up? our brethren have discouraged our heart, saying, The people is greater and taller than we; the cities are great and walled up to heaven; and moreover we have seen the sons of the Anakims there.
29 Then I said unto you, Dread not, neither be afraid of them.
30 The Lord your God which goeth before you, he shall fight for you, according to all that he did for you in Egypt before your eyes;
Welcome to this new quarter and 2nd half of 2019! Today’s scripture Verse 30 says: “The Lord your God which goeth before you, He shall fight for you…” That is a strong prophetic word to a user of today’s devotional concerning the Anakims (Giants – obstacles and challenges) on your pathway in 2019! That is the reason why you can face that Goliath (obstacles to your joy). Lift up your hands now and declare boldly many times: “For every obstacle or mountain that crosses or is crossing my pathway, the Lord shall fight for me in this 2nd half of 2019! Therefore, I shall not fear and I shall not be ashamed.”
Even when the mountain called, “Pharoah” was about to crush about 2 million Jews by the Red Sea, did God not show up at the last minute? Hold your peace and keep declaring daily that the battle is the Lord’s even in the 2nd half of 2019! Keep declaring that the LORD will fight for you even as you prepare to do the 14-days WORLDWIDE fast (7th-20th July 2019)! Get your “War Against Haman-14” booklet now and start cutting down on your food intake!
The last day of the fast will be anointing service at Lagos Mountain where I shall lay hands on everyone present as I am commanded! Oh! The Lord will silence the tongues that are backbiting you! He will turn the laughter of your enemies to tears! The battle is the Lord’s! Don’t run from obstacles! When you don’t confront that mountain, a journey of 11 days becomes a journey of 40 years! Did he not know that the giants were there before He said to the Jews, “Go up and possess it”? (Deuteronomy 1:21). “An age is called ‘dark’ not because the light fails to shine, but because the people refuse to see it” (James Michener). Don’t give up! It takes more courage to trust the Shepherd than to confront the mountain most times, but you must confront that mountain! God’s way sometimes is through the deep seas and His path sometimes through the great waters (Big problems). Man can crush any mountain with the double-barrel weapon called “PERSEVERANCE and PERSISTENCE!” Hold on to God because ‘problems’ are signs that there is great profit ahead! Mount up, move on; damn the darkness, speed the dawn. You will win because the battle is the Lord’s! Pray now!
Help someone to do the upcoming 14-day fast (Sunday, July 7th to Saturday 20th 2019): Give out this ODM edition and “WAR AGAINST HAMAN-14” booklet as a SPECIAL second half of the year gift items for weddings, anniversaries, dedications, birthdays, etc, to bless a soul.
