Today’s Reading:

Nehemiah 4 12- 23.

"Nevertheless, we made our prayer unto our God, and set a watch against them day and night, because of them... And it came to pass from that time forth, that the half of my servants wrought in the work, and the other half of them held both the spears, the shields, and the bows...” (vv. 9, 16)


We are to watch and pray, we are to be prepared against Satanic wiles. “The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him (Psalm 37:32). We Christians are not keeping watch enough, we are slumbering. Right from the earliest time, we see from the Bible how children of God has constantly been under attack and of course, God did not ask them to fold their arms and be watching. He gives them victory any time they seek his face.

Looking at the times of Nehemiah when they wanted to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, the opposition being faced did not deter them. Therefore, like them, we should not be discouraged of different tactics the devil wants to bring our way. We should be watchful and prepared to confront and deal with foundational powers hindering us from fulfilling our destiny. Be watchful and prepared against powers tormenting the Spread of the Gospel in this nation. Be watchful and prepared against the enemies of our progress . We are not to be afraid, because God has not given us the Spirit of fear, but of power, love, and sound mind (2Tim.1:7).

The Lord shall strengthen us, the Lord shall encourage us. He shall make us a terror to our enemies in the name of Jesus. We refuse to be dismayed; we refuse to be confounded. The victory God gave Nehemiah over Sanballat and Tobiah, shall He give us over all our enemies of progress, in Jesus mighty name. However, you cannot have this victory if you do not have Jesus as your Saviour. Do accept him now by inviting him into your life.

God bless.




  1. I claim victory, over every enemy of my progress, in Jesus name.

  2. O God arise, and answer Your name in my life, in Jesus name.

  3. I shall be a victor and not a victim in my journey of life, in the name of Jesus.

  4. O God arise, manifest your power in Your church, in Jesus name.

  5. Lord Jesus, reign in our nation, Nigeria, in Jesus precious name.
