Daily Devotion: The failure of other powers
SCRIPTURE: For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens. Psalms 96:5
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Any power outside of God is destined to fail; to patronize such powers is to perish without knowing.
Sometime ago,”I heard the story of a soldier who had the fetish power to disappear and reappear at will. During the Nigerian Civil War, each time the battle became intense, he would disappear and land in a safe zone. But one day, in the midst of a fierce battle and gun fire, he disappeared as usual but this time around, he appeared in the camp of the enemy, right in their midst.Interesting!
What happened to him? His charms, amulets, talisman or jujus failed him.
Beloved, any power outside of God is destined to fail; the power of the devil can fail; the god of this world is prone to failure; fashion, materialism, entertainment are all subject to failure. Political power fails. The powers of witchcraft fail. The powers of the occult fail; the powers of the native doctor fail. The god of mammon or the power of money also fails, like it failed in Egypt and in Canaan (Genesis 47″:15-17).
So,”to patronize such powers is to perish in life without knowing.
The truth is, there is only one power that cannot and will never fail; it is the Power of the Almighty God. It is only the Power of Jesus Christ that does not suffer failure. So, subscribe to that power today for your liberation, transformation and preservation.
You shall not fail, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS”: ASSIGNMENT: Any power outside of God is destined to fail; to patronize such powers is to perish without knowing.
1. Resist every invitation to seek any alternative power to the Power of God.
2. Never relent in your faith,”trust, hope or confidence in God no matter the persistence of your situation.
PRAYER”: Lord,”I will trust You in the night time, I will trust You in the day, I will trust You every moment of the day. I confess that no other power other than yours means anything. Frustrate every contrary power working against my life O LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
