SCRIPTURE: They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God. Psalm 84:7.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Spending time with God at the place of prayer is a sponsor of strength.
Our anchor Scripture reveals that strength is the portion of those who appear before God. It takes a buoyant and vibrant relationship with God to have a buoyant destiny. Anyone whose relationship with God is strong must have a destiny of strength. It is not possible for your hand to be strong on God and the same hands are weak in life.
For example, Moses was a man who had a buoyant relationship with God. He spent time with God to such a point that his face literally began to shine. And this same Moses ended as a man of strength.
His strength was unbeatable and irreducible.
You see, spending time with God at the place of prayer is a sponsor of strength.
So, whenever a person is disconnected from God, he or she begins to run on an empty tank spiritually. One of the greatest calamities of Samson was that he had no time for prayer. The Bible records that Samson only prayed twice – when he was thirsty and needed water to drink and after his eyes had been plucked out.
Strength in life is a product of spending time with God in prayer and fasting.
Sometime ago, a pastor who submits to us in Ministry, said that the Lord rebuked him one day and told him, “You always eat every time – morning, afternoon and night. You are busy eating but look at the man you say you are following, does he eat all the time like that?” This message from the Lord changed his life.
Beloved, weak destinies are products of fireless spiritual existence.
Remember this: Spending time with God at the place of prayer is a sponsor of strength.
- Refuse to live a weak spiritual life.
- Make up your mind to spend time with God. Make it a priority of life.
PRAYER: Lord, I thank You for Your Word to me today. I receive the grace to spend time with You so I can have a buoyant and vibrant destiny, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

AMAZING FACT: Our brain prefers images over text. Participants in studies only remember about 10% of information presented orally when they are tested 72 hours after instruction. However, that number jumps by about 65% when an image is added to the learning process.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: May the Word of God swallow up every trace of weakness in your life at this time in Jesus’ Name.
