Negative Preparation

Negative Preparation

2nd November 2020

Scripture Reading: 1 Samuel 17: 1-53

Focus

“Now the Philistines gathered together their armies to battle, and were gathered together at Shochoh, which belongeth to Judah, and pitched between Shochoh and Azekah, in Ephesdammim.” (1 Samuel 17: 1)

The second landmark that was mentioned in our Focal Scripture, pertaining to the armies of the Philistines that gathered against Israel, was Azekah. The word ‘Azekah’ means ‘To dig over’. To dig over means to prepare the ground, by tilling, in preparation for planting. So the enemies of Israel gathered in a place that was symbolic of preparation, against the people of God. Put differently, they gathered in preparation against Israel.

Friend, every satanic preparation that is ongoing against you right now, I command it to scatter now. Every plot of the enemy that is still at the preparatory stage, waiting to manifest later, I command the fire of God to consume it now. Every preparation of the enemy to steal, kill and destroy what God has given you, I command the fire of God to disrupt it. Every demonic preparation against your family, career, business, ministry, etc, I say no, and I cancel it by the power of God.

Every preparation of the enemy to cause you pain, shame, disgrace, distress, delay, denial, stagnation, sickness, losses, etc, I command such arrangement to be broken to pieces. Every preparation of hell against your destiny, no matter their numbers and their sophistication, I decree it will not stand. Every preparation to harm or hurt you, I decree it will not succeed. Every preparation of the enemy to bring negativity, I decree, it ends now.

Jesus did not redeem you so that the plans and devices of the enemy can run their full course in your life. Jesus did not redeem you so that the enemy can start and finish whatever he plotted against you. Jesus did not redeem you so that the enemy can have free access to disrupt your destiny as he pleases. Jesus did not redeem you so that the enemy can have space in your destiny.

Refuse every satanic preparation going on against you from the camp of the enemy. Send the fire of God to scatter every negative preparation of the pit of hell.

Declaration

Wherever there is an evil preparation against me, I command the fire of God to respond, in Jesus’ name!
