“And it came to pass after this, that Benhadad king of Syria gathered all his host, and went up, and besieged Samaria.” (2 Kings 6: 24)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
The strategy that Benhadad used against Samaria was to besiege it. The word ‘besiege’ as used in that scripture, comes from the Hebrew word ‘Tsoor’. One of the meanings of ‘Tsoor’ is to confine. So the enemies of Israel surrounded them and confined them. The enemies of God’s people surrounded them so that they couldn’t move. The enemies of God surrounded Samaria, and stopped good things from going into Samaria.
Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: every confinement around your life is broken. Every siege that is not allowing the good to have free access to your life, is broken. Every attack of the enemy that wants you to remain at the same spot without any progress, is broken by fire. Every attack of the enemy that wants you to experience the same negativity you saw in 2021, I command it to scatter by the fire of God.
Benhadad blocked whatever good thing that was coming to Samaria. So people in Samaria became victims of Benhadad. Hear me as I hear the Lord: every satanic blockade that wants to stop you from receiving the new, I cancel it now. I cancel every gang up that wants to take your portion and give same to another. I cancel every confinement of the enemy that has set boundaries around your capacity and capabilities.
Today, I decree over your life: all things are working. All doors and gates are open. Every confinement is broken. You are crossing every line the enemy says you will not cross. You are breaking out of every limit that the enemy destined that you won’t break. You are rising above every level that the enemy does not want you to rise to. You are becoming more than you have ever been before. You are breaking out of confinement.
Whatever powers or persons that confined you in the past will not repeat their feat this year. Today, I decree, every confinement is broken.
Isaiah 54: 3 says: “For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.”
Declare With Me: Every confinement against my destiny is broken; my gates are open to the new, in Jesus’ name!
