Scripture Reading: JOSHUA 2: 1-24


“And the men pursued after them the way to Jordan unto the fords: and as soon as they which pursued after them were gone out, they shut the gate.” (Joshua 2: 7)

Our Focal Scripture makes mention of the men who pursued the spies that were sent by Joshua. Those pursuers literally chased after the spies from Israel, but in the end, they were not able to catch up with them. They did their best to lay hold of the men from Israel, but they couldn’t. They did their best to chase the spies, but in the end, their efforts did not yield any result. They wasted their time chasing the spies, but never succeeded.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: every stubborn pursuer that is chasing after your life, I decree, they will not succeed. Those that are plotting against you will be left in shame. Those that are pushing for your downfall will witness the shock of their lives. The conspiracies against you will end in nothing. The lies that have been told against you will end up fruitless. The effort targeted at your downfall will not see the light of day.

Those that pursued the men from Israel, basically wasted their time and efforts, but were unable to achieve their aim. Today, I decree, your haters’ efforts against you will be a waste. Efforts targeted at reducing your influence will waste. Efforts targeted at making a mess of your destiny will crumble. Efforts that are meant to limit you will end up a waste. Efforts that ought to keep you in obscurity will not stand the test of time

The same way Pharaoh chased after the children of Israel, and ended up in the Red sea with his chariots and horsemen, those that chase after you will end up going down the drains. The more they chase after you, the more they remain empty handed. The more they go to satanic altars against you, the more they realize that you belong to the generation that cannot be hunted down. Your chasers will end up fruitless.

Do what you have to do and think less of the antics and efforts of your stubborn pursuers. If God be for you, they simply will not succeed against you.


The stubborn pursuers against me will waste their efforts and be fruitless, in Jesus’ name!
