Scripture Reading: 1 KINGS 17: 1-16


“And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.” (1 Kings 17: 1)

Our Focal Scripture speaks of that moment when Elijah said that there would no dew or rain in Israel. Notice that Elijah took the position to halt the rain because of Ahab and the prophets of Baal. Baal was known as the god of rain in bible times; but by Elijah’s proclamation, what Baal was known for was going to be cut short. The evidence of Baal’s influence was going to crumble. What Baal was known for, was cut off.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: whatsoever the enemy is known for that has manifested in your life, I command it to go down now. I command every trace of the influence of the enemy to crumble. I command the effects of the attacks of the enemy to perish by fire. I command every impact the enemy has made on your health to give way. I command every negative impact of the enemy to end immediately.

Elijah called for a cessation of rain, and made it obvious that Baal was no longer in charge. Hear me as I hear the Lord: whatever the enemy has made happen in your life before now, it has come to an end. Whatever negative patterns the enemy has sponsored in your life have come to an end. Whatever negativity the enemy has sponsored in your life has come to an end. Whatever misfortune the enemy has sponsored has come to an end.

Every signature that the enemy has left in your life, let the blood of Jesus blot it out. Every footprint the enemy has left in order to show how he afflicted you in time past, let the finger of God take it away. Your life will no longer be an expression of the works of darkness. Henceforth, your life will advertise the works of God. Your life will display the goodness of God. Your life will not tell the tale of one whom the enemy wrecked.

Welcome to that season where the enemy has got nothing on you. Welcome to that season where the display of the works of the devil in your life, will no longer happen.


My life will not advertise the works of the enemy, in Jesus’ name!
