“Now there was no smith found throughout all the land of Israel: for the philistines said, lest the Hebrews make them swords or spears?” 1 Samuel 13:19
A blacksmith is someone who forges iron. In the Bible days, it was the blacksmith who made swords and spears used for battles. This duty of the blacksmith makes him a source of defense to the people. Beloved, today I want you to know that God is your blacksmith. You don’t need any man or any other defense order than God. This year 2018, you will sing and you will dance for the Lord who is your defense shall show forth your victory.
In the story in our opening scripture, the philistines knew that the children of Israel were formidable and could destroy them at any time, so they decided to strip them of their means of empowering themselves. They attacked their source of defense. They put a ban on the business of blacksmithing, so as to control the Israelites and keep them perpetually under their power. The result was that each time the Israelites were attacked by their enemies, they had no sword to fight back. “So it came to pass in the day of battle, that there was neither sword nor spear found in the hand of any of the people that were with Saul and Jonathan: but with Saul and with Jonathan his son was there found.” (1 Samuel 13:22).
Well, thank God that the devil can only try to hinder you but he cannot stop you. Believe me, God is more than enough. He is your blacksmith that gives you weapons that your enemies know not of. The grace of God you carry shall destabilize your enemies this 2018. The devil has tried to hinder you and to stop you but he forgets that all the help you need is not in chariots, swords or men but in the Word of God, in the power and authority that God has given to you. This is why you cannot be stopped this year. You’re unstoppable and unbeatable. There is no more hindrance around you for the yoke of your enemies have been broken off you by reason of the anointing.
1 Samuel 13:19-23, Isaiah 10:27
Healed of convulsion
One night, there was commotion in my compound as one of my neighbours was convulsing. It was too late to rush her to hospital so I got the blood of Jesus I had and administered to her. In few minutes, she was calm and she slept off. That was the end of that affliction. Praise God.
