Label of negativity

No Negativity

25th August 2021

Scripture Reading: 1 Samuel 10: 1-12


“After that thou shalt come to the hill of God, where is the garrison of the Philistines: and it shall come to pass, when thou art come thither to the city, that thou shalt meet a company of prophets coming down from the high place with a psaltery, and a tabret, and a pipe, and a harp, before them; and they shall prophesy:” (1 Samuel 10: 5)

Our Focal Scripture makes mention of the hill of God, which was also the location of the garrison of the Philistines. A hill that had the name of God on it, also had a fortress of the enemies of God around it. It seemed that the best of God was existing side by side with the worst of the enemies of God. It was a case of negativity existing side by side with what was good; it was a case of negativity surrounding a high place.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: no negativity will exist side by side with what the Lord has given you. No negativity will become a permanent feature in your life. No evil will become a part of your blessings. No satanic affliction will become a permanent part of your health. No satanic roadblock will become a permanent opposition to your advancement. No messenger of evil will surround the works of God in your life.

At a place that could literally be called God’s residence, the Philistine army decided to make it their residence too. Hear me as I hear the Lord: every evil that has moved into your territory, I command it to get out by fire. Every seat of Satan that has come to stay around you, I command it to be broken by fire. Every enthronement of negativity that has happened in your life, family, health, business, career, etc, I dethrone that negativity now.

Jesus did not raise you so that you can allow the enemy to have a foothold in your territory. Jesus raised you to be a disruptor of the kingdom of darkness. Jesus raised you to interrupt the reign of negativity around you. Jesus raised you so that the enemy can suffer major losses. Jesus raised you so that the gates of hell will not prevail. Arise as a disruptor that you are, and tear down every satanic garrison that the enemy has raised.

Make a commitment to never allow the gates of hell to prevail over anything that concerns you. Make a commitment to never allow negativity exist side by side with what is yours.


No negativity will exist side by side with my high place, in Jesus’ name!
