Label of negativity

Negative Voices

27th January 2022

Scripture Reading: 2 Kings 6: 24-33, 7: 1-20


“Then a lord on whose hand the king leaned answered the man of God, and said, Behold, if the LORD would make windows in heaven, might this thing be? And he said, Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof.” (2 Kings 7: 2)

When Elisha gave the prophecy about the increase that was about to come forth in Israel, a lord on whose hand the king leaned, questioned the process. That lord spoke words that were against what God was about to do. That lord spoke words that tried to negate what God was set to do. A huge miracle was about to be made manifest in Israel, and that lord who was so close to the king was the one speaking against it.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: every voice that is positioned to speak against your miracle in 2022, I silence it by fire. Every voice of opposition against your increase and advancement, I silence it by fire. Every voice that is saying no when God is saying yes to you, I command it to shut up by fire. Every voice that is poisoning the heart of your helpers, I command it to be silenced by fire. I shut up every tongue lying against you.

Elisha was in one corner, speaking the word of the Lord, proclaiming the miracle that was to happen, and commanding the gates of heaven to be opened to the children of Israel; but there was another voice speaking in opposition to the promise of God. Hear me as I hear the Lord: every voice that is speaking against the promise of God for your life, I command it to go down by fire. Every voice that is saying no to your rising, shut up by fire.

Notice that the voice of Elisha and what he proclaimed, overshadowed the voice of the lord on whose hand the king leaned. The voice that was speaking for miracles overshadowed the voice that was speaking against the miracle. Hear me again: in this year, the voices speaking for you will overshadow the voices speaking against you. The voice of your helpers will overshadow the voices of your opposers and naysayers.

No longer shall any negative voice cause you to miss what the Lord has already destined for you. You will not lose your portion because of naysayers.


Every voice speaking against my new season, shut up by fire, in Jesus’ name!
