No Reduction

4th March 2020

Scripture Reading: 2 Kings 6: 24-25, 7: 1-20


“And there was a great famine in Samaria: and, behold, they besieged it, until an ass's head was sold for fourscore pieces of silver, and the fourth part of a cab of dove's dung for five pieces of silver.” (2 Kings 6: 25)

When the King of Syria besieged Israel with his army, things got so bad that an ass’ head was sold for eighty pieces of silver; even dove’s dung that should not have any value suddenly had value and was sold for five pieces of silver. It seemed that the money of those in Samaria lost value while the things that had no value suddenly had value; they moved from buying food to buying dove’s dung; their status was reduced.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: in 2020, your level will not be reduced. Your heights in life will not be reduced; your destiny will not suffer reduction; you will not be brought down from the heights you have already attained; you will not start moving backward after moving forward; you will not be demoted in destiny; your level will not be reduced; your status will not be reduced; you will not suffer a destiny reduction.

The reduction in standards that Israel suffered was not a mere accident; it happened because some men took steps that produced that evil result. Every man that is taking steps that will reduce your destiny, today, I decree, let their efforts backfire on them. Any man that is plotting to reduce or downgrade your destiny, may their evil return to them. Every man that is working to make you go down, may they go down in your place.

Instead of reduction, your destiny will experience an increase. Your path shines brighter and brighter; your light will never grow dim; your destiny will never suffer loss; your progress will not be defeated; your advancement will not be replaced with retrogression; you will not move from relevance to irrelevance; you will not move from visibility to obscurity; you will not lose your place; you will not suffer the misfortune of reduction.

Today, I decree, rise higher than you ever risen. Move to your next level. Move up. Arise and shine.


I arise and shine, in Jesus’ name!
