Unafraid of Bad News
Esther 4.3 "And in every province where the king’s command and decree arrived, there was great mourning among the Jews, with fasting, weeping, and wailing; and many lay in sackcloth and ashes."
That was an evil decree; a command that made people mourn, weep and wail wherever it was announced. Today, we nullify such decrees and commands, in the name of Jesus!
Proverbs 25.25 says that "As cold water to a weary soul, so is good news from a far country." Just as there's good news, there's also bad news. Since the year began, there are people who have received terrible and unsettling news about their children, parents, friends, businesses, jobs, etc. The Bible says that when Jacob heard that his son, Joseph, had been killed, he tore his clothes, put sackcloth on his waist, and mourned. They tried to comfort him; but he refused to be comforted; he said he would go down into the grave to his son in mourning. No, you will not mourn forever! Your days of mourning are over in Jesus name!
Psalm 112.7 says we will not be afraid of evil tidings; that is bad news, and that our hearts will be steadfast, trusting in the Lord! No more bad news this year, in the name of Jesus! No evil decisions will affect you and your loved ones, in Jesus name! Your job is secure, in the name of Jesus! Your business will only grow, in the name of Jesus! No harm will befall your family in Jesus name! And no policy of government will affect you negatively, in the name of Jesus! Say Amen!
