“And the Syrians had gone out by companies, and had brought away captive out of the
land of Israel a little maid; and she waited on Naaman’s wife.” (2 Kings 5: 2)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
The Hebrew maid in our Focal Scripture was a product of warfare. Syrian soldiers
fought before they got the maid that later led Naaman to his healing; they fought in
order to get someone who transformed the life of their captain; they fought until
their battle added value to them.
Friend, God says, fight your battles until you receive treasures; there are
treasures in your warfare. The things you need for your next level will come through
warfare. Wage war against the enemy until things change around you; pray until the
doors that are shut against you open unto you; pray until the treasures that are
absent in your life come to you in abundance.
The opponents of the Syrian army may not have willingly let go of the maid, but they
released her in the midst of intense battle. Some things may not come to you if you
negotiate with the enemy, but when you arise in warfare prayers, they will come
easily. Impossibilities will become possible when you try the warfare option.
Prayerfully wage war until your erring child changes for good; wage war against the
satanic powers that are responsible for your health challenge; your finances may not
change, you may not rise in your career, your business may not make progress, the
cycle of stagnation may not end, etc until you arise in spiritual warfare.
Your challenges will crumble under intense spiritual warfare. Don’t give up on your
battles; fight on, keep pushing, press on, and you will prevail.
Psalm 144 vs. 1 says: “Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to
war, and my fingers to fight:”
Pray With Me: Lord, teach my hands to make war; may my warfare bring me treasures,
in Jesus’ name!
