No Loss

Scripture Reading: 1 Samuel 17: 1-53


“Now the Philistines gathered together their armies to battle, and were gathered together at Shochoh, which belongeth to Judah, and pitched between Shochoh and Azekah, in Ephesdammim.” (1 Samuel 17: 1)

Our Focal Scripture paints a picture of the location of the Philistine army that gathered against Israel. One major landmark of the location where the Philistines gathered, was Ephesdammim. The word ‘Ephesdammin’ means ‘Boundary of blood’. Ephesdammim had become a location for recurrent battles between Israel and the Philistines. The blood of both the Israelites and Philistines were shed in Ephesdammim. Israel lost, and their enemies also lost.

Friend, in this season, hear me as I hear the Lord: you will not share in the losses of the enemy. The devil will lose and you will not lose. You will walk in complete victory while the enemy walks in complete defeat. You will not lose anything to the hands of the enemy. You will not lose any portion that the Lord has given to you. You will not lose grounds. You will not lose your relevance. You will not lose to the enemy.

Ephesdammim was that place that reminded Israel of how the enemy prevailed over them at some point. It was a reminder of past losses. Hear me as I hear the Lord: in this season of your life, the losses of the past will not be repeated. The defeats of the past will not be repeated. The misfortunes of the past will not be repeated. The pain of the past will not be reenacted. I decree over your life today: there shall be no loss.

Israel walked into that battle in the boundary of blood, they walked into that battle in a place where they had lost before, but it ended in their favour. They prevailed over the enemies that prevailed over them in time past. Hear me as I hear the Lord: you will prevail over the enemies that prevailed over you in time past. You will defeat what defeated you in the past. You will crush the seat of negativity raised against you.

No longer shall you count losses as the enemy counts his. You are not a loser. You will not suffer loss.


There shall be no loss, in Jesus’ name!
