Jesus’ Power Over Our Early Battles - TD Jakes Daily Devotional December-27-2023

TD Jakes Daily Devotional (December-27-2023) Jesus’ Power Over Our Early Battles.

Bible Quote: "And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm." - Mark 4:39

The spiritual journey of each individual often encounters early storms, stirred up by the enemy to thwart the fulfillment of God's plan for their lives. 

The strategy of the enemy, as highlighted in this message, is to initiate these storms early in life – before a person grows in knowledge, faith, and anointing.

The devil’s aim is to disrupt the divine trajectory before it gains momentum, attacking at stages when individuals are most vulnerable and least prepared.

Jesus’ intervention in calming the storm before reaching Gadara symbolizes His power and willingness to break through the storms in our lives. 

It represents His authority over the chaotic forces that seek to prevent us from realizing our God-given destiny. 

The storms that Jesus must navigate to reach us are both external and internal – they are the challenges we face in the world and the barriers we construct within ourselves, often unknowingly.

The arrival of Jesus in Gadara and His confrontation with the demon-possessed man further underscores the enemy’s recognition of Jesus’ power. 

The enemy’s plea for a deal, having failed to stop Jesus from reaching the region, is a testament to his recognition of defeat. 

The demon's enjoyment of tormenting the man reveals the cruel nature of the enemy's attacks, seeking not just to harm but to isolate and destroy self-worth and identity.

This passage teaches us about the relentless nature of spiritual warfare and the necessity of Jesus’ intervention in our lives. 

It's a reminder that no matter how early the attacks begin or how deeply entrenched the storms become, Jesus has the power to calm them and bring us into a place of healing and restoration.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You for Your authority over every storm in our lives, those that began early and those we face now. 

Help us to recognize and overcome the barriers that prevent us from receiving Your healing and restoration. 

We are grateful that You are always willing to navigate through our storms to reach us, offering peace and liberation. 

May we find strength in Your presence and trust in Your power to defeat the enemy’s schemes. Amen.
