Confront Negativity

14th June 2020

Scripture Reading: 2 Kings 4: 1-7


“Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets unto Elisha, saying, Thy servant my husband is dead; and thou knowest that thy servant did fear the LORD: and the creditor is come to take unto him my two sons to be bondmen.” (2 Kings 4: 1)

The woman in our Focal Scripture was married to one of the sons of the prophets who served under Elisha. That man died without dealing with the debt he owed; he also did not meet Elisha for intervention. The creditor would have taken his sons to be bondmen, but his wife reached out to Elisha and the hand of negativity was turned back. His wife confronted the negativity that was about to swallow the family, and it was halted.

Friend, you may have inherited the negativity that others left behind, you may even be a victim of troubles that others should have dealt with, you may be faced with challenges that were there before you came, you may be witnessing negative cycles in your family which existed before you were born, you may indeed be surrounded by all manner of negativity that you did not contribute to. Today, God says, confront that negativity.

Arise in prayers against every negative pattern you see around you; arise in prayers against the pandemic of Covid-19; arise in prayers against every hand of the enemy that is being made manifest in your destiny; arise in prayers against every satanic door that enemy has opened in your life; arise against every negativity that wants to make a mess of your family, business, career, ministry, academics, relationships, future, etc.

If that woman had remained silent in the face of the debt that her family owned, just maybe the creditor would have taken her sons as bondmen. If you remain silent and allow negativity to continue, things might speedily go from bad to worse. If you turn a blind eye to the negative cycles you see around you, they will become more and more complicated as the days go by. Any negativity you fail to confront makes someone a victim.

You belong to that generation that was born to confront negativity. Arise, break the chains of the enemy, and give the devil no space around you.


I confront every negativity around me, in Jesus’ name!
