Beloved, this message is for someone whose faith is weak. It is for that person who has lost hope in the battles of life. This is a good news for you.The Lord our God destroys the gods of the enemies. Their main source of confidence was crushed! Look at this interesting story in 1st Samuel Chapter 5:1-7.

“After the Philistines had captured the Ark of God, they took it from Ebenezer to Ashdod. Then they carried the Ark into Dagon’s temple and set it beside Dagon. When the people of Ashdod rose early the next day, there was Dagon, fallen on his face on the ground before the Ark of the Lord! They took Dagon and put him back in his place. But the following morning when they rose, there was Dagon, fallen on his face on the ground before the Ark of the Lord! His head and hands had been broken off and were lying on the threshold…”

The Philistines, knowing nothing about the ways of God, thought that Israel was defeated because their god Dagon was more powerful than the God of Israel who was represented by the Ark. Unfortunately, unregenerate men always make ridiculous judgments regarding God. The so called god, dagon was portrayed as a man to the waist and with the tail of a fish. The Philistines putting the Ark of the Covenant by this fish-god Dagon was intended as a public demonstration that the God of the Israelites was inferior to, and had been vanquished by, the national deity of the Philistines.

The Lord defeated Dagon in his own home! Their national god falling over was a way of God telling the enemies of God's people that "every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess" (Romans 14:11). That was the same god Goliath called when David came to fight him! (1st Samuel 17:43 ) Goliath boasted in the name of the dead god! So the Philistine said to David, “Am I a dog, that you come to me with sticks?” And the Philistine cursed David by his gods.“ No wonder David defeated him! Imagine the small boy killing Goliath!

Every genuine believer is a carrier of God's Presence! The Ark represents God’s Presence! Any one that carries you has carried The Lord. Any where your name is submitted, God’s name is submitted! You are a member of God's Family. The Lord Jesus says,”...but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” (Luke 10:20b).As a member of God's Family, your family name is Jesus Christ! The Bible says in Philippians 2:9-11,the name of Jesus Christ is the Highest in Heaven, on earth and beneath the earth.

Any where they take your matter to, Jesus Christ will appear! If they take your name to other gods, there will be trouble in their camp! The Lord will destroy their gods the same way He destroyed dagon. When this happens, your enemies will submit. They will be afraid of your file.They will campaign for you. The one stopping your blessings will start working for you.

Jesus Christ says “ I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.” ( Revelation 1:8). He is Alive to do it again. Hebrew 13:8 confirms " Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” He will fight your battles! He will crush the powers of your enemies. He will give you victory in every area of your life. You do not need to serve the powerless gods. You do not need to join secret cult for power or anything. You do not need other gods to run a church or ministry. You do not need those gods to be healed or solve your problems in jobs, business, marriage, academics, in politics,etc. The power of Jesus Christ is the Highest and no other power can stand Him.

All you need Jesus Christ. Turn to Him now and do His will. He calls, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”(Matthew 11:28). Truly, He will take over your battles and you will be victorious.
