Text: Psalms 37:39
But the salvation of the righteous is of the Lord: he is their strength in the time of trouble.
Psalms 24: 1-10
The life of a man on earth is not ordinary. It is guarded and controlled/affected by spiritual forces. There are forces of light and forces of darkness. Light is depicted with loving kindness while darkness is crass wickedness. So, in the course of life, forces of darkness do erect spiritual gates to inhibit the success, progress, health or well-being of an individual. When this happens in the spiritual realm, it manifests in ills in the physical life of the individual, family or nation. But anyone who has clean hands and a pure heart that refuses to lift up his soul to vain things or swear deceitfully can approach the throne of God for only such has access. He is accorded the righteousness of Christ having become born again. For him, the Lord rises to put His enemies which are the forces of darkness to flight. When the Lord who is the King of glory arises, gates are lifted for such a being in the spiritual realm and life starts to find meaning in the physical. Are you passing through some difficulties that appear to defy solution? Your salvation is in the hands of the Lord. Seek Him in righteousness and He will arise for you. A woman with great hemorrhage who had spiritual gates putting her in bondage only had to touch the tip of the Lord’s garment and she received her salvation as the evil gates tormenting her were immediately lifted. All gates of affliction will be lifted for you today as you cleanse your heart and your hands so as to properly focus on the Lord for your salvation and rescue.
Father, I approach you today the Lord of my salvation: do cleanse me anew with the precious blood of Jesus and arise for me that all gates of affliction erected for my sake may be lifted even now, in the mighty name of Jesus.
