It’s Not Over

Scripture Reading: 1 Samuel 30: 1-20


“So David and his men came to the city, and, behold, it was burned with fire; and their wives, and their sons, and their daughters, were taken captives.” (1 Samuel 30: 3)

When David and his men returned to Ziklag, they found that their children and wives have been bundled away. These wives and children were captured by the enemies of David and his men, but all they did was to take them away. So the women and children changed location but they were not necessarily killed. These same women and children were eventually recovered by David. So things shifted but nothing was lost.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: things may shift in your Ephphatha season, but nothing will be lost. Things may appear to go bad, but the enemy will not have the final say. Things may go out of control, but you will not lose control. Things may shift in the economy but you will not lose your place; things may shift in your family but the enemy will not win the war. Things may shift, but there shall be nothing missing.

In the midst of what was missing, it seemed that the enemies had won, but in the end, it was a temporary situation that simply came and passed. Hear me as I hear the Lord: whatever negativity the enemy throws at you will expire sooner than later. No negativity will persist in your life; no evil will build a throne in your life; no power of hell will form a stronghold around you. No negativity will become permanent.

If you have embraced Jesus, then you belong to the company of those whose destinies cannot be occupied by enemy forces. If Jesus has taken center stage in your life, then no negativity is empowered to stay. If it ever comes, it will come and pass; if it ever begins, it will end as soon as it started; if it ever starts and it is of the devil, then it is not allowed to settle and remain.

Don’t accept that any negativity will remain around you. If there be anything that has shifted grounds, command it to come back to you.


Things may shift but nothing will be lost, in Jesus’ name!
