A principal ingredient to success and victorious Christian life is courage demonstrated in the abiding presence of God and/or trust in His word. These are parameters that can guarantee our success as pilgrims on this Earth.

In Judges 6: 11-16, 36-40, God intended to use Gideon to deliver the Israelites from the Midianites, but Gideon did not appear to have courage in God anymore. He was not only hiding in a winepress, he was questioning the abiding presence of God. As soon as he was able to ascertain the presence of God by a number of checks, he developed a good courage in God and enjoyed Divine victory in the end.

– The oppression on Midianites came to an end.

– The impoverishment of their land seized.

– The panic in the life of the people ended.

May the oppression of any ‘Midianite’ upon your life come to an end in Jesus name. May the impoverishments you may have suffered come to an end in Jesus name. May you never experience panic attacks any longer in Jesus mighty name.

In Exodus 3:1-12; 4:1-17, God handpicked Moses to save the Israelites from bondage in Egypt. Moses however lacked the courage to embark on such a mission, so God had to work on his courage first before he was able to take up the assignment, he then became successful.

– Years of domination and slavery came to an end.

– Maltreatment from their taskmasters ended.

– They became a terror to their captors.

– They became beneficiaries of free wealth.

I decree an end to years of domination and slavery you might have been through in Jesus name. May all the maltreatment you have been subjected to by life taskmasters come to an end today in Jesus name. May God turn you into terror against all your previous captors in the name of Jesus. May the wealth of all your adversaries be passed over to you in Jesus name.

In 2 Chronicles 20:1-30, three nations came up against Judah to overrun them. The courage that Jehoshaphat showed paid off in those dangerous times. The Israelites went to battle with singing and God fought for them.

– Their enemies slaughtered each other.

– The evil alliance brought tremendous riches to Judah.

– surrounding nations became afraid of Judah.

– Judah enjoyed rest all the era of Jehoshaphat.

I pray that your enemies will help to eliminate each other in Jesus name. May every evil alliance against you bring you good fortune. May the fear of you be upon nations around you. May you enjoy Divine rest for the rest of your years on Earth in Jesus name.
