The Shout of The King Is Amongst Us!

Scriptures For Meditation — Numbers 23:19-21; Jer 31:29-30; Eph 1:3

Num 23:19 “God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

Num 23:20 Behold, I have received a command to bless; He has blessed, and I cannot reverse it.

Num 23:21 “God has not observed wickedness in Jacob [for he is forgiven], Nor has He seen trouble in Israel. The LORD their God is with Israel, And the shout of their King is among the people.

We have been studying the story of Balaam and Balaak in the book of Numbers, where Balaak (the king of Moab) had employed the prophet Balaam to curse Israel.

As we read In the story, there are a few important pointers that we can hold on to as we petition God on behalf of our families and contend for our destinies; we will identify and stand against whatever repeating limiting or destructive patterns that we may be experiencing in our lives or families.

1. God cannot lie

This is the foundation on which we will be building our stand as we believe God for what we are petitioning Him for. Whatever He has promised to do in our lives or situation, He is faithful to keep His promises concerning us.

2. When God blesses you, no one can reverse or alter His pronouncements over your life.

3. The blessings of God over your life are more powerful than whatever curses may have been spoken over your life or at work in your family lineage.

4. Because your life is hidden with Christ in God, every Curse or negative pronouncement concerning your life will not stand not prosper.

5. God has blessed and equipped you with everything that you need to fulfil His purpose for your life.

What’s Your Reality?

Having said all of that, some of us will realise upon looking closely into our lives, that the story of our lives may be somewhat removed from this reality. We may suspect that there appears to be some sort of hex or curse or negative spiritual forces fighting against us like an unseen hand, pulling us back or resisting us when we try to move forward in life.

And this may not just be limited to only ourselves, as sometimes, we could identify the same pattern at work in the lives of some people in our family line as well!

Friend, if these are true concerning you, that ought not to be so in your life as a child of God; and the Good News is that in Christ Jesus, we have the victory and authority over Curses and negative pronouncements spoken over our lives!

Search and Destroy

God’s charge to us as we fast and pray this month, is to stand and believe Him for the cancellation of every Curse and the cessation and reversal of every negative cycle that we may have been experiencing in our lives or families.

Prayer Focus

On this first day of our waiting on the Lord, we will spend our time to consecrate ourselves to God and invite and entertain His Holy Presence in our lives / space.

Num 23:21 “God has not observed wickedness in Jacob [for he is forgiven], Nor has He seen trouble in Israel. The LORD their God is with Israel, And the shout of their King is among the people.

Or as the NLT puts it:

For the LORD their God is with them; he has been proclaimed their king.

God being with us is indeed our greatest defence against the attacks or wiles of the enemy!

Let’s lift a shout of praise to our Defender and Shield.

Let’s lift up our voices and proclaim Him to be our king.

Let the shout of the King sound louder than the evil words that the enemy has been speaking concerning your life and over your family.

Position yourself for your deliverance and breakthrough in Jesus’s Name!

Eph 2:10 For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above–spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us].
