Isaiah 51:9-11; 35:9-10
There is a reality of evil. Israel is reminded that when they were threatened with Egyptian genocide, they experienced a demonstration of divine power.
In the Name of Jesus Christ,
I bless your spirit, soul, and body
with great victories in overcoming
the forces of hurt and evil.
Though He is not the author, creator,
or instigator of all that disrupts you
or threatens to destroy you,
everything is under His sovereignty—
even to the point that He sovereignly
turns hardship into blessings.
You have the sure word of the Lord Jesus:
the Cross was the final blow in Satan’s
attempt for world dominion;
the work of redemption made Satan
of no further significance!
Just as the Red Sea became an escape
route for the redeemed,
may every skirmish to disrupt
and destroy you become an exit
to safety and promise;
your divine Kinsman-Redeemer
can turn every circumstance
into a way of escape.
Make this your prayer:
God, it was you who made a way
to rescue your redeemed—
do it again!
May you experience the demonstrations
of His divine power.
Influenced by the certainty of His historical
acts, signs, and wonders,
may you now have confident faith
that He journeys with you,
He comforts you, He delivers you,
He takes all your needs as His own.
Confident in Him, depression and despair
will disappear, sighing and sorrow
will turn to celebration—
you will be overwhelmed
with never-ending gladness and joy.
