No Back And Forth

You Won’t Go Down

Scripture Reading: Ezekiel 37: 1-14

Focus

“The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,” (Ezekiel 37: 1)

Our Focal Scripture introduces the famous story of the valley of dry bones. Right in that valley, there were very many dry bones, of men who were slain in the valley. Some men came to the valley to fight battles, but they were consumed by the battles they faced. They died in the valley. They were reduced to nothing in the valley. They came with hopes of victory, but they ended in defeat. They were slain in the valley.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: you will not die in the valley. You will not be reduced to nothing in the valley. You will not be extinguished at the prime of your life. You will not be counted amongst them that were defeated by the same things and battles they came to defeat. You will not be counted amongst them that made it to the battles alive but never made it out of the battles. You will not be swallowed by your battles.

Today, I pray for you: rise out of every valley the enemy has taken you to. Arise out of every low place; arise out of every place you have outgrown; arise out of the shackles of your old season; arise out of the shackles of your past; arise out of your struggles and weaknesses; arise out of those traps the enemy set for you; arise out of the conspiracies of men against you; arise out of the low places where the enemy wants to keep you.

You were not created to live in the valley; you were wired to stand on the mountain of relevance and influence. You were wired to be at the top and not beneath. You were created to win and not lose. You were positioned in the place of power, never to be a victim of any battle that comes your way. You were created to put the enemy to shame, and it will never be said that the enemy put you to shame in your life time.

The days of your obscurity are over. No longer shall you be caught or reduced in the valley. You will not die in the valley. You are rising from every valley experience.

Declaration

I arise out of the valley; I rise to the mountain top, in Jesus’ name!
