“And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.” (Mark 4: 35)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
It is instructive to observe that the movement to the other side which involved Jesus and His disciples, happened when it was evening time. Evening is the time before night time. Evening means that darkness is soon about to appear. So it was movement that came on the brink of darkness, but they moved all the same. Darkness was about to show up, but it did not stop the movement. Darkness did not stop the trip to the other side.
Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: no darkness will stop your movement. No matter how dark the clouds have gathered, they will not stop your rising. No matter how dark the predictions of men are, they will not stop you from rising to your higher grounds. No matter how dark the economy is, it will not hinder your increase and fruitfulness. No matter how dark your environment is, you cannot be stopped from the new season movement.
Hear me as I hear the Lord: the forces of darkness will not succeed in stopping your success. The dark clouds that the enemy has planted around you will not hinder your rising. The wicked people in your space will not stop your greatness from becoming a reality. The ‘dark’ policies superintending over your career, business, ministry, vocation, finances, etc. will not stop you from moving. No darkness will stop you.
Whatever altar of darkness that has vowed to stop your rising to your higher grounds, I command it to scatter by fire. Whatever altar of darkness that says you will remain at the same spot from year to year, I command it to burn by fire. I remove every man that represents darkness around you. I remove every structure or system that is creating darkness around you. I remove every handwriting or ordinance creating darkness.
The season when darkness stopped your movement, is over. Even in the dark, the Lord shall be your light.
Micah 7: 8 says: “Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.”
Declare With Me: No darkness will stop my movement, in Jesus’ name!
