No Negativity

8th November 2019

Scripture Reading: Matthew 14: 22-33


“But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.” (Matthew 14: 24)

When the disciples of Jesus got to the middle of the sea, they were tossed with waves, because the wind was contrary. Winds usually stir up waves from the sea shore. So as Jesus’ disciples left one shore, the winds arose from the other end and began moving towards them. As they made progress, the contrary wind also made progress. As they advanced forward, something that was against them was also advancing towards them.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: there shall be no advancement of negativity against you. Evil will not make progress against you; satanic forces will not make progress against you; the negative voices that are speaking against you will not make progress against you; the conspiracies of men will not make progress against you; no satanic enchantment will make progress against you; negativity will not make progress in your life.

Jesus’ disciples didn’t face a contrary wind when they left the shores. They met the wind in the midst of the sea. So as they moved, they had no idea that something which was against them was moving. You may not have run into your ‘contrary wind’, but they are probably somewhere ahead waiting to surprise you. Every conspiracy, evil plot, hurdle, etc hanging around to destroy you or pull you down in future, go down now.

Instead of negativity, favour will advance towards you; greatness will advance towards you; everything that pertains to life and godliness shall advance towards you; the resources of heaven shall rain heavily on you; the resources of the earth shall serve you; kings shall advance towards you; fruitfulness shall be your portion; what opposed others shall support you; what pulled down others shall lift you higher.

Command every negativity that is currently advancing against you to be halted. Command negativity to stop making progress against you.


Every negativity against my advancement, I halt you now, in Jesus’ name!
