FOCUS SCRIPTURE“Now the Philistines gathered together their armies to battle, and were gathered together at Shochoh, which belongeth to Judah, and pitched between Shochoh and Azekah, in Ephesdammim.” (1 Samuel 17:1)

In our Focal Scripture, when the Philistines invaded Israel, they encamped in Ephesdammim, which was between Shochoh and Azekah. So apart from being unable to enter into Shochoh, the Philistines were also unable to enter into Azekah. The name ‘Azekah’ means ‘fertile ground’; so despite the challenge of the Philistines, the ‘fertile ground’ remained untouched. The enemies couldn’t tamper with Israel’s fertility.

Friend, hear God’s prophetic word: as you step into your wealthy place, nothing shall tamper with your fertility; nothing will hinder your ability to produce results; nothing will get in the way of your productivity; the policies of men will not stop you from yielding amazing results; the roadblocks in the economy will not stop you from making financial progress; no matter what your haters do, you will continue to record huge results.

God says, in 2017, whatever happens, you shall be fruitful, you shall be maximally productive, you shall flourish against all odds, you shall be fruitful even when others are not fruitful, you shall have your hands filled with God’s blessings even when others are empty handed, your fruitfulness shall defy the economies of this world, and no enemy of your destiny will tamper with your fruitfulness and productivity.

Jesus went to the cross to redeem you to Himself and to restore you to the same promises that God made to man in Genesis. If you have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus, then fruitfulness is embedded in you, and you have no option but to be fruitful; you can’t even be anything other than fruitful if you align yourself with the finished work of Christ on the cross.

Walk away from every habit or attitude that will hinder your fruitfulness. One thing is for the enemy to affect your fruitfulness; another thing is for you to hinder your fruitfulness with your own hands. If you are redeemed, stay redeemed and you will stay fruitful.


I am fertile and fruitful, in Jesus’ name!
