Theme: Lord Raise Me A Helper.
Scriptural Passage: Tobit 6,7,8.
We are all in need of a helper. Not just any helper but a divine helper. Someone whom God will send this year that will help turn our situations around for the better. We must always pray that when such helper comes, we may not miss it in the name of Jesus.
That divine helper is someone whom the Lord will send your way when you need it the most. It is that person that the Lord will send our way to provide us solutions to the challenges we are facing at that time. It is a helper that will dry our tears for us, help us forget the pains of the past, help us look to the future with a brighter hope, help us to acquire a renewed energy, a focused vision, a directed energy, a constant joy and renewed peace everyday.
Prayer: I pray standing upon the sanctuary of the living God and ministering in his presence, you will not die before that helper comes in the name of Jesus. I decree, that helper will not delay in coming. He will not come when the challenge has swallowed you in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Child of God I want to report to you that this helper will come to you in a gentle manner. It is someone who will be interested in you even when you don’t want to pick his or her call or be with the person. This person will be patient with you until you are able to listen to him or her. Even when you want to be alone, the person will make sure he or she is sitting very close to you and depending on your mood, he or she will sit there quietly and will understand every of your move. All the person has to offer you is his or her smile and presence which is very therapeutic. In fact, it has a healing and soothing balm and relief to you.
Prayer: I pray today that you will not miss that person or chase that person away with your attitude in the name of Jesus. Amen.
I decree that the wind of destruction will not chase the person away in the name of Jesus. Amen.
There are characteristics of such helper:
Friends, we must pray for this helper. In the months of 2018 your helpers shall locate you. You shall not miss them in the name of Jesus. Amen. The bible says in psalm 121:1-2 “I look to the mountains; where will my help come from? My help shall come from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.”
Brothers and sisters, the following verses give us what this helper will do.
This is the work of the Lord! Men may help you but it is to get something in return. For the Lord, his interest is always that you make it in life. That you become what he has created you to be. That you come to full joy every day.
Brothers and sisters, scripture is filled with examples of those men and women whom the Lord came to their rescue in time of great need.
Prayer; I pray when you are unable to face your herod and pharaohs, God will raise mighty men and women of valour to come to your aid in the name of Jesus.
That helper whom the Lord has raised to assist you will carry good news about your vision and mission in life in the name of Jesus. Amen
Prayer: I pray this day when it become difficult for you in your business, in your marriage, in your vocation, in the pursuit of your destiny, in pursuing your vision and evil tries to overwhelm I decree, the Lord shall raise great helpers that will keep you on the right track, you will not stumble and fail, you will succeed in your mission, you will succeed in your vision, you will succeed in your marriage, you will succeed in your vocation, you will succeed in that difficult and challenging assignments in the name of Jesus. Amen.
In Gen. 41:9-13- then the wine steward said to the king, I must confesss today that I have done wrong. You were angry with the chief baker and me, and you put us in prison in the house of the captian of the guard. One night each of us had a dream, and the dreams had different meanings. A young Hebrew was there with us, a slave of the captain of the guard. We told him our dreams, and he interpreted them for us. Things turned out just as he said: you restored me to my position, but you executed the baker
Prayer: I decree you good deeds shall bring you abundance of favour. Those that you did good for will not forget you. They will remember you. They will come to your aid. Any wind that will want to take their minds away from helping you, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I render it powerless and ineffective in the name of Jesus Chris of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen.
I decree by the power of the Blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, any man whom you did good to that has turned back to harm you, the lord shall turn their hearts back to you and give you peace in the name of Jesus. Amen.
In chapter 6. While Tobias got to wash his feet in the River Tigris, a big Fish jumped out of the water intending to swallow his feet, the angel encouraged him not to let the big fish get away. The angel encouraged him to keep the Gall-bladder, heart, and liver of the fish which would serve medicine.
Following the question of Tobias in verse 6 what diseases can be cured by the gall-bladder, heart, and liver? Then Azarias responded in verse 7 saying-the heart and liver can be burnt and used to chase away a demon or an evil spirit that is tormenting someone. The attacks will stop immediately, and the person will never be troubled again. In verse 8 he said, the gall-bladder can be used to treat a man whose eyes are covered with a white film. Just rub it on his eyes and blow on the film, and he will be able to see again.
In verse 9-12, Azarias encourages Tobias to Marry Sarah his closest relative. The Jews had a tradition of marrying their closest relative and if the father of the woman is rich, the inheritance becomes that of the husband who is her closest relative.
He gave Tobias the quality of Sarah in verse 12-she is sensible, brave, and very beautiful; and her father is a good man.
Verse 13-15 Even when Tobias was afraid of the demon that tormented Sarah and prevented her from marrying and killed those men who sought her hand in marriage; Azarias encouraged him to Marry Her and he should bother less of the demon.
In verse 16-17 he tells Tobias how to expel the demon
In verse 17-Azarias also told him what to do after the demon must have been expelled. He said to him, both of you must get up and pray for the Lord in heaven to be merciful to be merciful to you and to protect you.
He also blessed their union-he said Sarah was meant to be yours from the beginning of creation. You will rescue her from the demon, and she will go with you to your home. You and Sarah will have many children, whom you will love very much. Do don’t worry!
Child of God, when divine helpers come your way, all your struggles will be over. It might take some time. the truth remains that at the appointed time, you will have that person that was meant to help you. All you need do tonight is to pray and ask God for great helpers. Take your eyes away from the challenge and focus it on the Lord.
Divine helpers will always encourage you especially when you are about to loose faith or afraid.
Divine helpers will not give you evil report rather they will affirm you, they will encourage and support you.
I prayer child of God, those helpers will locate you in the name of Jesus. Amen.
In the book of Numbers 13-Moses sent out 12 spies one from each of the twelve tribes of Israel to go and explore the land of Canaan. Since God had promised him as contained in the mission he gave to him earlier in Exodus 3 where he encountered the Lord in the Burning Bush. He wanted to have a fore experience. He wanted to know what kind of a place that would be so he sent out 12 spies.
Their mission was spelt out in verse 18-20 he said “find out what kind of country it is, how many people live there, and how strong they are. Find out whether the land is good or bad and whether the people live in open towns or in fortified cities. Find out whether the soil is fertile and whether the land is wooded. And be sure to bring some of the fruit that grows there. Scripture says, it was the season when grapes were beginning to ripen. ”
The spies explored the land of Canaan for 40days and brought back the fruit from the fertile soil of Canaan. But they gave a negative report. In verse 28-they said; the people who live there are powerful, and their cities are very large and well fortified. Even worse, we saw the descendants of the giants there. In verse 29 they said the Amalekites live in the southern part of the land; Hittites, Jebusites, and Amorites live in the Hill-Country; and Canaanites live by the Mediterranean Sea and along the River Jordan.
The negative news brought panic to the people and it was Joshua and Caleb and counteracted the negative report by saying in Numbers 14:7-9: “the Land we explored is an excellent land. If the Lord is pleased with us, he will take us there and give us that rich and fertile land. Do not rebel against the Lord and don’t be afraid of the people who live there. We will conquer them easily. The Lord is with us and has defeated the gods who protected them; so don’t be afraid.”
Your divine helper does not listen and believe in evil reports perpetrated by carnal men and women. They believe in the power of the Lord, in the strength of the Lord to deliver you, in your ability to do exploits, they believe in you and see things from the brighter side of life. As you pray, God shall raise divine helpers for you in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Almighty father I cover your son with the precious blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. amen
