SCRIPTURE READING | 1 SAMUEL 30:1-20
Prior to our Focal Scripture, the King of the Philistines had given Ziklag as a place of abode for David and his men. David had been on the run because Saul wanted to kill him; he had been unsettled for a while; he had no permanent abode for a while, because his enemy, Saul, would not let him be. Then came the King of the Philistines, and that problem was solved. It seemed that a good thing had happened to David.
Notice that in our Focal Scripture, the Amalekites invaded Ziklag and burnt it, taking the women and children as captives. Just when it seemed that David was no longer being followed by Saul, a new set of enemies came for him. Just when it seemed that something good had begun to happen, a bad thing soon followed. In simple terms, it was a case of a good thing paving way for the bad. It was a ploy to interrupt David’s joyful sounds.
Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: your life shall be a signpost for joyful sounds, and no devil from the pit of hell will interrupt your joyful sounds. Joyful sounds shall come your way back to back; your good news will be followed by more good news. Your testimonies will come back to back; your open doors will come in quick succession; your good news will give rise to more celebrations and congratulations; every good thing that comes your way will be followed by more good things that will make you dance and celebrate.
This year, whatever makes you laugh will not give way to tears of pain; no good thing that comes your way will make way for the bad to happen; no good news will give way to bad news; no miracle will give way to tragedy; no breakthrough will pave way for misfortunes; no open door will mark the beginning of your downfall; your good news will not be a landmark and harbinger for bad news.
Your season of joyful sounds has begun. As surely as the Lord lives, every good news will give birth to more and more good news.
DECLARE WITH ME
My season of joyful sounds has begun; no good news will pave way for bad news, in Jesus’ name!
