No Stagnation

10th 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 the children of Israel were oppressed under Jabin for twenty years. For twenty years, they lived in pain and anguish. For twenty years, the same pattern/cycle of negativity remained. The years passed by them, but their circumstances did not change. The years made progress, but they didn’t make progress. The oppression of Jabin made them stagnant. Time was moving but they were not moving.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: every oppression that has made you stagnant, I command it to cease now. Every satanic activity that has put you in bondage, causing your years to remain exactly the same, I command it to cease now. Every negativity that the enemy has made a permanent feature in your life, I command it to cease today. Every oppression that is keeping you stagnant as time is moving, be consumed.

Time was moving but the children of Israel were not moving. Time was moving but they did not make progress. Time was moving but nothing good was added to their lives. Hear me as I hear the Lord: every plot of the enemy to cause your years to be empty and without new additions, I command that plot to scatter now. Every attack of the enemy that wants you to achieve nothing new as the years go by, let it scatter by the fire of God.

The attack of Jabin against the children of Israel was an attack against their time. He simply messed up their time. He made their time worthless. He made their time empty, with no results. Any attack of the enemy to make a mess of your time, let the fire of the Lord consume it. Every attack of the enemy to make your time and years worthless, today I decree, let the fire of God consume it. Chains of oppression, break by fire.

The years of stagnation and oppression, are over. No longer shall your time be worthless or empty. No longer shall you remain in the same place as time moves. You will not be behind when your years are in front.


No more stagnation; I move as time moves, in Jesus’ name!
