we’re the hope of the nations
The people of the land have used oppression, and exercised robbery, and have vexed the poor and needy: yea, they have oppressed the stranger wrongfully
Ezekiel 22:29

Rhapsody of Realities Daily Devotional For Sunday 16th January 2022

One of the reasons judgment will come on the world is the injustice and oppression that’s prevalent in different nations today. You’ll find organizations, agencies and even governments enacting policies that oppress their people. They use regulations to crush and further impoverish the already poor and needy in their societies, while creating opportunities for themselves and their allies.
For some, this problem is merely a political issue, but we know from the Scriptures that it’s more than just politics it’s spiritual. The Bible tells us in the Book of Isaiah how an evil spirit is responsible for the impoverishment of many nations in the world today: “...I removed the boundaries of nations, I plundered their treasures like a mighty one I subdued their kings. As one reaches into a nest, so my hand reached for the wealth of the nations as people gather abandoned eggs, so I gathered all the countries not one flapped a wing, or opened its mouth to chirp’” (Isaiah 10:13-14 NIV).
Many ignorantly suppose that the downward trend in their economies is due to market forces, but the Bible makes it clear who plundered their wealth. That’s why we must keep praying for the nations so that instead of oppression and injustice, there’ll be peace, godliness and honesty. He knows this is possible in our day that’s why He asked us to pray. Let’s exercise our authority and dominion in Christ over the nations.
We’re the only ones that can free the nations. The Bible says the whole creation is in groaning, expecting to be set free, waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God (Romans 8:19). We have the authority in the Name of Jesus to turn things around in the nations. So, use the Name of Jesus against these demonic powers and break their hold and influence. Declare, by the Spirit, the power of righteousness upon the leaders of your community, city, town, nation or organization where you work, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.


I declare that the Gospel has free course throughout my nation and the righteousness of God is established in the land and in the hearts of men. The Word of God prevails in this country (name your country), leading to a greater harvest of souls into the Kingdom, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
