SCRIPTURE READING: JUDGES 16: 1-25
FOCUS: “And the lords of the Philistines came up unto her, and said unto her, Entice him, and see wherein his great strength lieth, and by what means we may prevail against him, that we may bind him to afflict him: and we will give thee every one of us eleven hundred pieces of silver.” (Judges 16: 5)
MEMORY VERSE: “But thus saith the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children.” (Isaiah 49: 25)
When Samson began his relationship with Delilah, it wasn’t long before the lords of the Philistines came to her with a proposal to receive payment and entice Samson in return. They began a transaction on how to sell Samson into bondage. Some people were willing to pay Delilah so that they can procure Samson’s downfall. Some people were willing to pay to have Samson go down. Transactions were being held to destroy Samson.
Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: every transaction that is currently being held in order to procure your downfall, I command it to scatter by fire. Every conversation that is being held on how to reduce or even extinguish your destiny, I command it to scatter by fire. Every man that has decided to pay a price before any altar of darkness in order to cut short your destiny, I command both them and their price to come to nothing.
Hear me as I hear the Lord: you will not be a commodity in the hands of your enemies. You will not be counted amongst them that were sold off into captivity or danger. You will not be counted amongst them that were cut short in their prime. You will not be a victim of another man’s transaction before men or before spirits. You will not be a victim of a price that was paid without your knowledge. You will not be sold to the enemy.
If you have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus, then you have already been bought with a huge price. Anyone that is plotting to buy you off will have to pay Jesus Himself. Jesus did not pay for you so that another man can pay a little price and have you. Jesus paid so that you will not be sold into bondage again. Jesus paid so that you won’t be a victim of the plans of the enemy. Jesus paid so that no conversation can take you down.
No longer shall the conversations and transactions of mere men make you a victim. No longer shall you be caught in the midst of the evil machinations of haters and adversaries.
