Out Of Order

Out Of Order

5th November 2020

Scripture Reading: 1 Samuel 17: 1-53


“And he stood and cried unto the armies of Israel, and said unto them, Why are ye come out to set your battle in array? am not I a Philistine, and ye servants to Saul? choose you a man for you, and let him come down to me.” (1 Samuel 17: 8)

Our Focal Scripture speaks of that moment when Goliath emerged and began to question Israel’s army for setting the battle in array (order). The battle formation in bible times was for soldiers from opposing armies to face each other in the valley, face to face, army to army. Goliath showed up, and queried Israel for setting the battle in order. Goliath preferred to have one champion emerge and fight him. He hated the order that Israel had; he spoke against the order that Israel had.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: every attempt of the enemy to scuttle the order in your life, I command the plans to scatter now. Every evil plot to dislocate your family, career, business, ministry, marriage, finances, etc, I command the fire of God to scuttle it. I command every conspiracy that wants to disorganize your life to scatter now. Every satanic plot to reverse the positive order in your life, I command it to scatter now. Every power of hell that wants to put you out of alignment, let fire respond.

Israel could fight their battles against the Philistines when the battle was set in array; they could deal with their adversaries when there was order; but Goliath showed up to stop the order. If there be any part of your life that the enemy is trying to put out of order, be careful to know that he is trying to cut short the victories that should come from your battles. If the enemy is trying to set you out of order, he wants to steal your victory and prepare you for the next defeat.

If there be any part of your life that has gone out of order, I decree restoration. I decree a restoration of divine order to your life, family, ministry, finances, career, business, health, etc. I decree a restoration of divine order to every facet of your life that has gone out of alignment. I decree the order of profit to be restored to your businesses; I decree the order of good health to return to your body; I decree the order of abundance to return to your finances; I decree order to be restored.

No ‘Goliath’ will put your life out of order. No power of hell will tamper with the divine order in your life.


My life will not go out of order, in Jesus’ name!
