Scripture reading: Psalm 124 “If it had not been the Lord who was on our side,” Let Israel now say, “If it had not been the Lord who was on our side When men rose up against us, Then they would have [quickly] swallowed us alive, When their wrath was kindled against us; Then the waters would have engulfed us, The torrent would have swept over our soul; Then the raging waters would have swept over our soul.” Blessed be the Lord , Who has not given us as prey to be torn by their teeth. We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the fowlers; The trap is broken and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord , Who made heaven and earth." AMP.

If it was not for the blood of Jesus Christ who prevailed for us in Calvary, where would we be today? the enemy and his agents would have consumed us. The Lord did allow us to be consumed.

My brethren, the Lord will not allow you to be consumed in that storm either. The storm might look massive for now. The situation might feel unbearable for now, but do not despair, the Lord is faithful, He will never leave you nor forsake you. He is working on your case behind the scenes even today.

Stand firm. Believe in the power of the blood of Jesus Christ. As a believer of Christ, He has sealed you with His powerful blood. Jesus has made a mark of the blood on your forehead. When danger, demons or the spirit of death come your way, the blood of Jesus which never dries up with prevail for you.

The blood of Jesus is still powerful to destroy the whole kingdom of darkness today. The blood of Jesus is Omni-Potent and that is why those who rely on the blood of the goats, the cows or the blood of the animals will get frustrated when they fight against you because they can never win the battle.

If it had not been for Lord on your side, the enemy would have drowned and killed you, but the Lord did not allow you to be consumed by those trials and tribulations of life. The Lord has raised a standard against the kingdom of darkness. Confess by faith that the blood of Jesus has brought you victory in 2017.
