FOCUS SCRIPTURE“24. And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herself five months, saying, 25. Thus hath the Lord dealt with me in the days wherein he looked on me, to take away my reproach among men.”(Luke 1:20)

Our Focal Scripture speaks of that moment when Elizabeth affirmed that God had taken away her reproach among men. So her barrenness had caused her reproach among men. Apparently, some people were already mocking her for not having her own child yet. What she was going through put her in the news for the wrong reasons; but in time, the God who rolls away reproach showed up in style and ended the reproach.

Friend, is there a matter in your life that has brought you reproach? Is there a challenge in your life that has made men to laugh at you and question your commitment to God? Is there a situation that has persisted in your life and men have now resorted to making mockery of you? Is there a challenge that has advertised you wrongly because of the peculiarity it came with? Are you at that point where you are being mocked?

Hear me as I hear the Lord: whatever has made men mock you shall cause God to remember you. Whatever matter that has caused men to laugh at you will cause God to do a miracle that will make you laugh; whatever issue that has persisted to the extent of advertising you wrongly shall be a reason for God to grant you a miracle that will put you in the news; your object of mockery shall be an subject of divine intervention.

The days of your reproach are over; the days of your mockery are over; the days of being laughed at, on account of your situation, are over; the days of your pain and shame are over. Henceforth, every point of mockery shall become a point of miracle. No more shall you be described by negative circumstances. No more shall you be counted among the rejected and forgotten. No more shall you be looked down upon. The same God who showed up for Elizabeth and took away her reproach will also show up and take away every reproach that your circumstances have caused you.


My days of reproach are over; I have been remembered, in Jesus’ name!
