The birth of Jesus our saviour was one that generated a lot of battles. Understand that the devil is not always happy whenever God starts working. He will not fold his hands and allow it happen, he will fight it but definitely he can’t stop it.
The news of the birth of Jesus which brought Joy, Hope and Faith to many, also brought anger, pain and stirred up envy in the heart of Herod the king.
What a cruel world we live in. It is not everybody who congratulates you that are actually celebrating with you. Herod got so bitter to the point that he decided to kill Jesus. He made an order that every child from two years old should be killed. The good news is that the devil can never outsmart God. God is always ahead of the devil.
Matthew 2:13 – when they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, “Get up”, he said, take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him”.
Herod did not succeed in his mission to kill baby Jesus because God revealed his evil plan to Joseph ahead of time. You will always be ahead of your enemies. The secret plans of those that desire your downfall and those that wish you dead will be exposed, and you will always escape in Jesus name. You cannot be killed for God is with you. You are protected in Jesus name.
Whoever attacks you does it without my consent; whoever fights against you will fall. “I create the blacksmith, who builds a fire and forges weapons. I also create the soldier, who uses the weapons to kill. But no weapon will be able to hurt you; you will have an answer for all who accuse you. I will defend my servants and give them victory.” The LORD has spoken.
What an assurance of defense in God's word! Victory is mine and yours in Jesus name. HALLELUYAH!!
Job 5:12 He upsets the plans of cunning people, and traps the wise in their own schemes, so that nothing they do succeeds;
1. Oh Lord disappoint the devices of my enemies against my life and family in Jesus name.
2. The Lord is my shield, therefore no evil shall befall me and my family in Jesus name Amen.
God bless you.
