But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries. Exodus 23:22
As believers, we are in a war. Our fight is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places Eph 6:12. We do not get to see these forces with our physical eyes, but they manifest through people and often times use people to perform their operations.
The life of the believer may be characterized by several battles, but God has not left us helpless. He promised to avenge us of our adversaries if we indeed obey His voice – this is our guarantee to living a life of constant victory. An example can be seen in Genesis 20, when Abraham’s wife, Sarah, was taken from him as he sojourned. God arose on his behalf and fought for him. Abimelech not only returned Sarah but also gave him a thousand shekels of silver and the freedom to live anywhere. When God fights for you, you are not only delivered but also increase in blessings.
God fought for Abraham because Abraham was in total obedience to God. God has not called you to fight for yourself; all He requires of you is obedience. Therefore, align yourself with God in total obedience, and then He will be activated as your avenger, he will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.
Prophecy 1: Receive favour before God today in Jesus name.
Prophecy 2: As you step out today, may the plan of the devil continually fail in life in Jesus name.
W: Reflect on this – Is your obedience complete before God? If No, make that your priority always.
X: I decree and I declare that my heart is steadfast on the lord.

For over 1,000 years the region was a bastion of Christendom, but it later became a strong propagator of Islam. The Christian population has declined from 22% to 0.21% since 1900. Only 0.008% of people in Turkey are evangelical. Few of the 73 million Muslims have ever truly heard the gospel.
