Protected And Delivered From Evil
“… brothers and sisters, pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honored, just as it was with you. And pray that we may be delivered from wicked and evil people, for not everyone has faith. But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one”
– 2 Thessalonians 3:2-3 (NIV)
We all need to spread rapidly and be honored in our ministry, purpose, assignment and enterprises. It is critical to our progress and continued sustenance.
Paul realized that many times hindrances came by way of wicked and unreasonable men. People who for no known reason choose to stand against what God wants to do through us.
These people are like Sanballat and Tobiah.(Nehemiah 6:1-15) Wicked folk who just rise up and criticize your work or set themselves in opposition to your efforts.
As Paul commended himself to the prayer of the saints so also must we all pray for one another.
May you and yours be delivered from the whims of wicked and unreasonable men today. May their yoke be removed far from you and all yours.
This is our desire. And so shall it be. Amen.
Stay and Stand Strong!
In the name of Jesus Christ I declare, I advance towards my God-ordained goals speedily and honorably. No one shall be able to stop me or waylay me. All enemies are cut off from me. I am delivered from the whims and scheming of unreasonable, wicked and evil men. I am strong and protected from evil. Amen.
