READ: Exodus 14:28-29

  1. And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them.
  2. But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.

MEMORISE:
His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. Matthew 25:23

Bible In One Year: Jeremiah 43-45; Hebrews 3:1-19

MESSAGE:

God has several ways of dealing with the enemy. He can strike them with blindness (Genesis 19:1-11), He can drown them like He did to the Egyptians in the red sea (Exodus 14:27-28), He can bury them alive (Numbers 16:1-50) et cetera. The size, -strength, forcefulness and commitment of the enemy will determine the method God will use. Note that everyone has enemies, so don’t think that you don’t have enemies because you are a child. When Jesus was born, Herod sent wise men to locate where He was so that he could send soldiers there to kill Him, but his plan failed. The plans of the enemies over your life will fail in Jesus name.

There are several ways you can handle battles. Some people think that enemies are created only when they believe in their existence, and that if they dismiss such thought from their minds, they would never be confronted by any. Well, they could never be more wrong! Believe it or not, you have at least two enemies; the flesh and the devil (1 Peter 5:8). The devil also does not work alone. He works with billions of agents (humans and demons) and you can’t fight them with physical weapons. So, rather than attempt to fight, let God fight your battles.

Prayer Point:

Father, please fight all my battles for me.

HYMNS: THERE SHALL BE SHOWERS OF BLESSING

  1. There shall be showers of blessing:
    This is the promise of love;
    There shall be seasons refreshing,
    Sent from the Saviour above.

Chorus
Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need:
Mercy-drops round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead.

  1. There shall be showers of blessing,
    Precious reviving again;
    Over the hills and the valleys,
    Sound of abundance of rain.
  2. There shall be showers of blessing;
    Send them upon us, O Lord;
    Grant to us now a refreshing,
    Come, and now honour Thy Word.
  3. There shall be showers of blessing:
    Oh, that today they might fall,
    Now as to God we’re confessing,
    Now as on Jesus we call!
  4. There shall be showers of blessing,
    If we but trust and obey;
    There shall be seasons refreshing,
    If we let God have His way.
