Deuteronomy 32:48-52 (52) – Therefore, you will see the land only from a distance; you will not enter the land I am giving to the people of Israel.” (NIV)

A failure at the edge of victory is likened to a boxer who was winning a boxing bout only to be knocked down by a single punch in Round 12. Today’s Bible reading talks about Moses, who led Israel through the thick and thin but could not enter the promised land because he did not show God’s holiness in the incident at Meribah (Numbers 20:2-13). I decree! Every weight pulling you down in life and your spiritual journey is broken, in Jesus’ name.

A brother finally got a visa after several attempts and decided not to inform anyone. While on the plane, his left shoe went missing, and the air hostesses searched thoroughly but could not find it. On arrival, the brother held the other shoe and walked in barefooted. Getting to the immigration post, he was deported because they thought he must have escaped from the psychiatric hospital. Back home, he visited a relative who said, “Do you think you could travel without telling me? Go to that room and pick your missing shoe”. What a world!

Beloved, what success or status are you about to attain? You cannot afford to be complacent at any time because the enemies take pleasure in performing their enterprises (Job 5:12). More so, Moses’ example shows that no one is exempted from the scheme of these powers, which are bent on seeing that you do not finish well (1 Peter 5:8). Therefore, be faithful in holiness and service to God. Continue to watch and pray because anger, pride and immoralities, among other sins, can spoil your testimony (1 Corinthians 10:12).


Hymn: Jesus Saves — Priscilla J. Owens (1882)

1. Sorrow and disappointments on the verge of success, you are not my portion. Break by fire!


1. Angel of God! Silence my oppressors and grant me victory without a fight.

2. Satanic agents assigned to supervise my destruction; fail fatally with your sender!

3. I escape with my family, nation and the Church, every attempt to naked us. Decree!

4. Satanic triggers working day and night to cause me to displease God, scatter by fire!
