Friday 2nd November 2018 Morning Prayer Devotion
Scripture Reading:- Acts 12:1-25
Topic:- Herod Is Wicked And Must Die
Text:- Acts 12:23
There are many places in the Bible where Herod was mentioned, and in all these places, evil things were mentioned concerning his deeds. Although we are focusing on Herod in the Bible, nevertheless, we are not particular on individual but to note those evils done by him and what it means in our lives.
Herod can mean promotion hindered, or godly worship hinderers. God has made your promotion real which you will testify to give God the glory, but Herod will not, for he is there to hinder it. See Matthew 2:1-3.
Anyone or anything standing as unfriendly friends or manipulators of God’s will in your life or deceivers can also be termed as your Herod. With these around you, you will find it very difficult to get to your destination. See Matthew 2:2-9.
Herod is also miracles and joy hinderers. They are hired killers or star destroyers for selfish purpose. If you fail to pray them off in your life, then be ready to die without your glory shining. See Matthew 2:16; Acts 12:1-4, 19.
Herod also means those who will want to attribute God’s glory in your life to themselves. Some are even adamant and never ready to change or accept the Lordship of the Lord Jesus Christ. See Acts 12:21-23; 26:28.
Let me tell you, Herod is wicked, he must not be allowed to live, otherwise, he will terminate your life untimely without achieving God’s purpose for your life. Hate Herod with holy hatred and pray violently for your life to achieve God’s plan for your life, now and in the future. Your Herod must hand over and never to live. Herod must die.
1. Oh Lord, let the troublers of my life begin to trouble themselves henceforth, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. My glory, my departed glory! Return now to me by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. You Herod in my life, what are you waiting for? Die by fire now, in the name of Jesus Christ.
4. Oh Lord God, rain upon me, Your morning rain, in the name of Jesus Christ.
