September 12 who is speaking for you?

This is an impossible thing the king requires. No one except the gods can tell you your dream, and they do not live among people.” The king was furious when he heard this, and he sent out orders to execute all the wise men of Babylon (Daniel 2:11- 12). There is no consolation in ignorance and those that try to use ignorance as an excuse will perish. God said in His Word that his people “perish for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6). Words are so powerful and when spoken, they create something. God Himself created the world by speaking the Word. What is happening today in your life is a result of the things you have been speaking. The devil understands the power of our words and he uses them against us to destroy us. If you are not careful and vigilant you will be the architect of your failure.

The Word urges us to condemn every word that is raised against us in judgment before those words take effect in our lives (Isaiah 54:17). A story is recorded in the book of Daniel that shows us how the devil can manipulate our ignorance or lack of knowledge. King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream that he could not understand and as was the custom, he called all the magicians that were in the land to tell him his dream and the interpretation. The magicians told the King that his request was impossible and that only God would tell him his dream but the problem was, he did not dwell amongst people. When they could not tell him the dream and the interpretation he made a decree that all the wise men should be killed. This was not true and the amazing thing is that Daniel and his friends were part of the wise men of Babylon but they were not summoned to this meeting. The devil was conspiring against them.

The decree of the king was not selective; it was going to affect all the wise men. The truth is that God dwells amongst His people and the Word tells us that nothing is impossible for those that believe but the magicians had disqualified this before the king with no one to dispute their words. Men were sent to find and kill Daniel and his friends. Daniel requested more time from the king so as to interpret the dream. The secret was revealed because Daniel and his friends entreated God for a revelation of the information.

The decree was reversed only when Daniel went to the King to speak for himself and he requested more time. Who is speaking on your behalf? Have you taken time to reverse words that have been spoken against you? Words have power and you have to increasingly understand that power and use it to your benefit. Do not allow people to define your destiny, God wants to do the best with your life. The devil might be telling you that you will not live through the year but rise up and speak against that. You are meant to live until you are satisfied. Be vigilant and sober; reverse negative words spoken against you.
