SCRIPTURE READING: 1 SAMUEL 17: 1-53

FOCUS: “And the Philistine drew near morning and evening, and presented himself forty days.” (1 Samuel 17: 16)

MEMORY VERSE: “God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.” (Psalm 46: 5)

Our Focal Scripture speaks of how Goliath drew near every morning and evening, for forty days. The armies of Israel came to fight against the Philistines, but Goliath made sure to distract them from the battle by showing up every day for forty days. Goliath became a system of delay against the victory of Israel. Goliath became that time waster that ensured that they achieved nothing despite being in the battlefield.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: every system of the enemy that is wasting your time, I command it to go down by fire. Every voice of the enemy that is wasting your time in the fulfillment of your divine purpose, I command it to be silenced by fire. Every opposing system that is wasting your time and stopping your rising, I shut it down. Every system of hell that says your next level will be postponed again and again, I command it to go down.

Hear me as I hear the Lord: every ‘Goliath’ that has arisen to say that your will be delayed again and again, let fire answer. Every system that is delaying the destinies of your children, I command it to go down by fire. Every system of hell that say you will be delayed the same way others were delayed, I command it to scatter. Every siege of the enemy that says you will arrive at your new season later, rather than sooner, let it scatter.

I pray for you: let the hand of the Lord move you from the lane of delay to the lane of divine speed. Let the hand of the Lord cause your steps to be hastened. Let the hand of the Lord cause the matters of your life to receive speedy attention. Let the hand of the Lord cause your results to come speedily. Let the hand of the Lord cause you to break out of every system of delay. If there be men who have vowed to delay you, let fire answer.

The power of delay is broken. The things that once took years will happen in days. Whatever the enemy delayed in time past, I command it to manifest by fire.
