Spend time with God in your closet; one on one. Place more value on your relationship with God. This is the secret of comprehensive success. You cannot give what you don’t have. Most men have abdicated their responsibilities in many homes today. Women have taken and have become the priests and prophetesses of many homes. It should not be so. Please go and rebuild your family altar. It is good to be fine from the inside out. It is not every open door that is God’s door, some are satan’s traps. Even in ministry, if you have not learnt to hear God, then you are vulnerable.
Notice in verse 18, “Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field.” Thorns and thistles came as a result of the fall of man. The earth was never meant to bring forth thorns and thistles.
Isa. 27:1-6, “In that day the LORD will take his terrible, swift sword and punish leviathan, the swiftly moving serpent, the coiling, writhing serpent, the dragon of the sea. In that day (of Israel’s freedom) let this anthem be their song: Israel is my vineyard; I, the Lord, will tend the fruitful vines; every day I’ll water them, and day and night I’ll watch to keep all enemies away. My anger against Israel is gone. If I find thorns and briars bothering her, I will burn them up, unless these enemies of mine surrender and beg for peace and my protection.
The time will come when Israel will take root and bud and blossom and fill the whole earth with her fruit!” (TLB). When God steps into your battles, your enemies will become God’s enemies and they will all be crushed. The consuming fire of the presence of God will burn off every thorn and thistle in your life and convert them to manure that will fertilize your growth and you will begin to produce more fruits. The secret of comprehensive dominion is to allow the Lord step into your battles through your connection with the strong and mighty sword to dismantle and dismember leviathan. All the heads of leviathan will be crushed. This prophecy; the messianic prophecy was fulfilled on the cross of Christ.
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for the wonderful provision you have made for my fruitfulness through your Son Jesus Christ. Jesus, Son of the Most High God, I invite you into the gardens of my life. Come with your terrible swift sword and terminate every work of leviathan in my life. Let your consuming fire burn up every thorn and brier bothering me; make my life abundantly fruitful in the name of Jesus. Thank you blessed Lord, in Jesus name. Amen.
