VICTORY IN THE WILDERNESS 2A

There is no hopeless situation with God. There is no mountain that the Lord cannot move, no situation he cannot change.

Life itself is a very serious wilderness. In this wilderness, you need a guide, you need to be led and you must get your bearing right if you are ever going to have victory in the wilderness. You need to develop the attitude of a victor; have a conqueror’s mentality. The Bible says that in all these things, we are more than conquerors through Christ (Romans 8:37). The attitude you imbibe in the wilderness is of utmost importance. Every negative attitude leads to defeat and demotion. You should not have a grasshopper mentality while in the wilderness.

While in the wilderness, Moses sent twelve spies, including Joshua and Caleb, to explore the Promised Land. Ten of them came back with a negative report that the land was full of giants and that they were like grasshoppers in comparison to the Anakims. However, two people, Joshua and Caleb, had positive mentality and said that they were well and able to defeat the giants. They received the conqueror’s anointing that flows from those who make the right connections.

Your right connection will produce the right confessions that will take you to the place of victory. With the right confessions, you will possess your possessions and you will not miss out of the blessings that God has in store for you. No challenge in life should make you park; continue until you get to the Promised Land. From today, you will no longer lose in any of the battles of life. Until you make it to the Promised Land, the journey continues.

We are not called to walk on red carpet as some people think. The fact that you have given your life to Christ does not mean that you will not face challenges in life. Otherwise Jesus would not have given us the authority to trample upon serpents and scorpions. He expects that we are going to walk on serpents and scorpions and that was why he gave us power over all the power of the enemy indicating that the enemy also has some measure of power. Jesus has given us superior power over the power of the enemy, he has given us authority. The one who has authority is superior to one who has power. In Luke 10:19, God not only gave us power, he also gave us authority – ‘Dunamis’ and ‘exousia’. “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

Pray –

  • Lord Jesus I thank you for the power and authority you have given me over all the power of the enemy. I thank you because nothing shall by any means hurt me. I proclaim that in you I am more than a conqueror. Through you I shall do valiantly and make heaven at last. Amen.
