Unexpected Thrones

Strange Voices

Scripture Reading: Acts 16: 16-39


“And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:” (Acts 16: 16)

Our Focal Scripture reveals that as Paul and Silas went to prayer, they came in contact with the damsel possessed with a spirit of divination. Their encounter with the girl who was possessed with the spirit of divination, happened at the time of prayer. Prayer, in simple terms, is you talking to God and God talking to you. So at a time when Paul and Silas went to speak to God, a strange voice was speaking. At a time when they wanted to hear God, a spirit that was not of God was talking to them.

Friend, when the devil talks, he speaks fear. When the enemy speaks, he spreads an atmosphere of negativity around you. When strange voices arise from the pit of hell to speak over your life, it is only a matter of time before their words become your reality. When the enemy raises men to throw satanic enchantments at you, the bottom line is to make a mess of your destiny. The enemy that showed up to speak also came to destroy.

Today, I pray for you: any voice that is speaking evil around you, I silence it by fire. Any demonic voice speaking against your family, children, career, business, ministry, etc., shut up by fire. Any demonic voice speaking death into your family, I command it to shut up. Any voice that is triggering judgement instead of mercy for your sake, I command it to be silenced by fire. Any satanic voice speaking from any satanic altar, I shut it up by fire.

Today, I silence every negative voice that is speaking over your life. I silence every altar that is repeatedly calling for your blood to be shed sooner than later. I silence every voice from the grave that is speaking concerning you. I speak against the voices of affliction that are speaking against you. I speak against the voices of lack, setback, delays, confusion, conspiracy, etc. I speak against every voice that says you will not rise.

No longer shall voices of negativity compete with the voice of God concerning your life. No longer will the voices from the pit of hell prevail over your destiny.


Voices of negativity, shut up by fire, in Jesus’ name!
