“And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.” (Acts 3: 7)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
When Peter and John took the lame man by the hand and lifted him up, his feet and ankle bones received strength. So that man had been in the condition of lameness because strength was missing from vital bones in his legs. Strength was missing from areas where there should be strength, and lameness persisted. The enemy stole the strength that was meant to be at his feet, and he became lame, and unable to move by himself.
Friend, I pray for you: in any area of your life where the enemy has stolen your strength, I decree, receive strength. Let your strength be restored. Let your spiritual strength be restored. Let your financial strength be restored. Let strength be restored in your marriage. Let strength be restored in your health. Let strength be restored to your family. Let strength be restored to those areas where you have been unable to move forward.
Today, I decree, receive restoration for every area of your life where your strength was stolen or depleted. Receive restoration of whatever greatness you once had but later lost. Receive restoration for the heights that were taken from you. Receive restoration for every area of your life where you were reduced in time past. Receive restoration for the areas of your life where your advantage was taken from you. Be restored.
Be careful whenever the enemy makes an attempt on your areas of strength. When he goes for your strength, he is simply going for your ability to move and advance. When he goes for your strength, he is simply packaging you for stagnation and retrogression. When the enemy steals your spiritual strength, he is trying to halt your spiritual rising. When he takes your strength, he is taking away your ability to rise to your next level.
Guard your strength; don’t let the enemy take it from you; and in the places where you have lost strength, receive restoration with compensation.
Isaiah 40: 31 says: “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
Declare With Me: My strength is restored, in Jesus’ name!
