Daily Fountain 2017 - Revoking Evil Thoughts






Friday February 3

Bible Reading:     Psalm 35: 17 - 27

Topic:         Revoking Evil Thoughts

A woman who was not happy because her daughter got born attacked her with words like "it shall not be well with you until you stop this stupid Church thing; your children will disgrace you as you have done to me" Her daughter replied: "Mama, God bless you and may all your curses on me turn to blessings because I have done you no wrong."

The Psalmist in our text describes the injustice, malice and insolence of his persecutors and presented them as a reason why God should revoke their evil wishes.

Two days ago, we saw that He interceded for them, but today he engages in spiritual warfare not against them but against their evil thoughts.

That was the same thing the girl in our story did.

So while we intercede for our enemies, we must not shy away from spiritual warfare revoking the evil thoughts and wishes of our enemies.

Both the Psalmist and the girl in our story made their appeal to God on grounds of their righteousness.

Therefore we have to be righteous for our spiritual warfare to be meaningful and effective.

Prayer:
O God, turn every negative thought of my enemies against me intl blessings, Amen

Memory verse:   Psalm 35: 26
"Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that rejoice at mine hurt; let them be clothed with shame and dishonour that magnify themselves against me."
