No Negative Advantage

5th February 2021

Scripture Reading: Judges 4: 1-10


“And The Children Of Israel Cried Unto The LORD: For He Had Nine Hundred Chariots Of Iron; And Twenty Years He Mightily Oppressed The Children Of Israel.” (Judges 4: 3)

Our Focal Scripture reveals that King Jabin had nine hundred chariots of iron. In bible times, especially at the time of this captivity, Israel had no chariots and largely went on foot when they had a battle. So Jabin and his army had more sophisticated weapons with which they oppressed Israel. The capacity of Jabin for evil outweighed the children of Israel. The children of Israel faced trouble that was bigger than the solution they had.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: no negativity will be greater than the solution you have to offer. No evil will grow so big that it will overshadow you. No challenge will come your way that will overshadow your finances. You will not come face to face with issues that will consume your destiny. You will not be counted amongst those whose troubles are weightier than them. You will not be smaller than the troubles that come your way.

Jabin did not need to make a lot of effort to oppress the children of Israel. He simply had capacity that outweighed them, and for twenty years, he held them hostage. Hear me as I hear the Lord: every strength of the enemy against you is broken. Every advantage the enemy is using to oppress you, I decree, it goes down now. Every structure the enemy has set up to hold you to ransom, I command it to go down by fire.

Today, I pray for you: may the Lord cause you to have more capacity than whatever challenges that will come your way. May the Lord cause you to have more wisdom than your adversaries. May the Lord cause you to have more resources than your challenges demand. May the Lord cause you to have more helpers than your enemies have. May the Lord cause your capacity to outweigh whatever negativity that has arisen against you.

Every pattern of satanic advantage over you by your adversaries, is reversed. No longer shall the enemy have an advantage over you. By the blood of Jesus, you have a divine advantage.


Every advantage of the enemy over me is broken; no challenge will outweigh my capacity, in Jesus’ name!
