KEY SCRIPTURE: John 9:4 ” I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work”.
The final part of our key scripture says “…..for the night comes when no man can work”.
There is day and night in everyone’s life. We are active and work during the day but in the night everything comes to a standstill. In the night we go to rest. The Lord said, the night comes when no man can work.
There is a kind of night that comes our way that some of us yield to, yet this is not the night God has instituted. The bible calls it the evil day. Ephesians 6:13 “wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all to stand “. Please the evil day is not the night, the Lord is talking about. The evil day is a satanic aggression that rises against you to stop you from doing what God has asked you to do. The evil day is like the red sea that came across the Israelites’ path to the promise land. They had to team up with God to overcome in the evil day.
The evil day can be a threat of the devil on your life. It may come as sickness or something that comes to stop you. Every evil day is meant to be overcome. God expects us to stand in the evil day and overcome. (Ephesians 6:12-14)
Please children of God, you are a great target of the devil to resist you to terminate God’s agenda for your life. The bible suggests that we daily put on the whole of God’s armour to be able to stand in the evil day.
Please do not confuse the evil day with what the Lord calls the night. The night is a natural occurrence that happens to all men. It could be one’s old age or even call unto glory in God’s own time. The evil day is very different. In Paul’s ministry he had a lot of evil days yet he stood and overcame them all. The following passage reveal series of events that could be described as days of evil yet he stood on the word and overcame (2nd Corinthians 11:23-28).You will overcome in the evil day.
There is a time called the night and there is the evil day which is an aggression of the devil. I stand on the word and always overcome the evil day.
Matthew 8:24. And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.
Luke 22:53 “When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness”.
Prayer Point: In the name of Jesus no power of darkness shall stop me from finishing my assignment.
