In The Same Place

Prolonged Negativity

9th 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 for twenty years, Jabin oppressed the children of Israel. For twenty years, all they knew were tears of pain and shame. They failed God, but the repercussion lasted longer than they bargained for. They suffered again and again. Just when it would appear that their sufferings were about to end, they got an extension. They suffered negativity from year to year. They suffered from prolonged negativity.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: the cycle of prolonged negativity is broken over your life. The cycle of long standing challenges is broken over your life. You will not be known as that one who simply suffers from year to year. You will not be known as that one that wears negativity like a garment. You will not be counted amongst those who are still suffering from the same challenges their ancestors suffered from.

The children of Israel did not just stay in bondage for twenty years. There were men that made the bondage to remain for as long as it lasted. Every man that has arisen to retain and prolong the battles of your life, today, I command the fire of God to respond on your behalf. Let the fire of God consume every evil altar that is prolonging your challenges. Let the fire of God consume every satanic priest that wants you to cry forever.

In every area of your life where you have seen continuous negativity, you shall have continuous congratulations. In every area where you have experienced pain again and again, receive back to back good news that will make you smile. In place of pain and shame, receive double for all the troubles you have been through. Receive restoration with compensation. Receive new gates in place of the ones you lost.

If Jesus has redeemed you, then no prolonged negativity has a right to remain in your life. Today, their time is up. I decree liberty for your years of negativity.


The cycle of prolonged negativity is broken, in Jesus’ name!
