Scripture : Genesis 9: 1. And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! Previously, we established that your being blessed in life is a function of your vision! What you see with the eyes of your mind is what determines your being blessed and your rising in life.

From our anchor scripture, God blessed Noah because he possessed the right vision contrary to all that is happening around him. Imagine he started fulfilling purpose at 600 years old! You also will fulfill purpose in the name of Jesus.

Beloved, please be reminded that your mind is the camera of your life. It is also the bridge between your spirit and your body. That is where battles are won or lost.

Victory or defeat begins from your mind. So use your mind to get the right picture for life, God will say, “well done I will ensure it comes to pass”.

What exactly are we waging war against?
It is simply anything that could becloud our ability to see correctly and catch the right vision for life.

What are the things that create bad pictures?


1. Your age – Don’t permit your age to define what God can do.
2. Time: Don’t allow “time is running out”, becloud your mind.( Details of this in yesterday meditation)

3. Bad experiences. Experience it is said, is the best teacher, but when it is a terrible one it can set a limit on your mind and your life! A good example is Peter, he was an experience Fisher man. He understood that when the tide of the sea is against him during fishing, sinking is inevitable.

So when Jesus asked him to come on water, he walked majestically on water to meet Jesus but as soon as he saw the wind becoming boisterous his mind went back to his fishing experience, knowing that that such wind leads to sinking. Immediately he began to sink(Matt.14:28-30);

Matthew 14: 30. But when he saw the wind boisterios, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

Beloved, what Peter saw was sinking person and that was what happened! Permit me to ask you; what terrible experience have you had in the past that is making you afraid of life?

Have you been cheated, heartbroken, had repeated failures- business or other areas etc? I have good news for you, that ugly incident shall not repeat itself again in the name of Jesus! Fear not! Only take away your eyes from the unpleasant experience.

4. Wrong environment – when you are in a wrong environment, certainly it gives wrong pictures about life. By environment I mean where you live, where you work and your place of worship. They have a way of creating pictures in your mind of what to expect out of life. Was it not when Abraham went to Egypt and later to Gerar that he started telling lies? (Gen.12:12-20, 20:9-11).

However, you must say no to bad influence from your environment! Noah was in a corrupt environment but he choose to be different by virtue of the vision he had and eventually he was blessed.

5. Ancestry -when you come out of a cursed family where everybody is a failure, you may be tempted to believe that is how life should be.


However, you can change the wrong picture! And when God sees that you are ready to break the limit the devil set on your life and family, He backs you up by bringing you in contact with the relevant anointing that breaks the yoke! And when the yoke is broken, you will begin to fly! It all begins in your mind first.

6. Customs and Tradition. There are so many customs and traditions that negate the word of God! For example there are customs that encourage wife beating! It will take the grace of God for women from such customs to liberate themselves from slavery mentality. And so many other barbaric culture /tradition must not be allowed to give you a wrong picture.

Remember this; Heaven is real and hell is real! To reject Jesus is acceptance to spend eternity in hell. Give your heart to Jesus today.

Prayer points:
– Father thank you for your word to me today,
– Father, I receive grace to wage war against things that becloud my mind blocking me from seeing correctly in Jesus name.

Prophetic Declaration:

– I prophesy your change of story begins now in the name of Jesus.
-Every limitation on your mind because of cursed ancestry, is broken now in the name of Jesus.
– Every limit your culture and tradition has kept on your life is broken now in the name of Jesus.

From your brother Alex
God bless you.
