You shall not go empty

Exodus 3:20-22 So I will stretch out my hand and smite Egypt with all the wonders which I will do in it; after that he will let you go. And I will give this people favor in the sight of the Egyptians; and when you go, you shall not go empty, but each woman shall ask of her neighbor, and of her who sojourns in her house, jewelry of silver and of gold, and clothing, and you shall put them on your sons and on your daughters; thus you shall despoil the Egyptians."


Friends, this is the time of the year when many churches have various prayer programs and retreats in order to commit the year into God’s hands. Many Christians are praying, fasting, seeking the face of God. It is my prayer that as you fast, pray, and seek the face of God, YOU SHALL NOT GO EMPTY!!! I PRAY THAT God will settle you in such a way that you will know that it could ONLY be the finger of God.


The children of Israel had been in bondage for MANY years. They had suffered in the hands of the Egyptian. The bible tells us that after we have suffered a while, God will settle us:


1st Peter 5:10 - But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.


Friends, you have suffered a while in that situation. May you experience divine settlement in Jesus’ mighty name. May God establish you and perfect “ALL” that concerns you in Jesus’ name! When God delivered the Israelites from Egypt, they did not go empty (Ex. 3:20-22). The law of recovery is that you always recover MORE than what you lost. The bible tells us that when a thief is caught he shall restore sevenfold.

Proverbs 6:31 - But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.

The bible tells us that the thief (devil) came to kill, steal, and destroy everything that God blesses you with BUT Jesus came that you (and I) may have them more abundantly.


John 10:10 - The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.


What is it that the enemy has been delaying in your life? That is the very thing that you will enjoy more abundantly in the mighty name of Jesus! Has he been denying you children? If so, get ready to be the proud mother of a Samuel! If he has been denying you a life partner then get ready for your Boaz! Friends, I pray in the mighty name of Jesus that this season of fasting, praying, and seeking the face of God, He (God) will lift up His countenance upon you and YOU SHALL NOT GO EMPTY!!!


I pray in the mighty name of Jesus that there would be a divine exchange: for brass you shall have gold, and for iron silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron. Your sun shall no more go down; neither shall you moon withdraw itself: for the LORD shall be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended. A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: the LORD will hasten it in his time (Isaiah 60). You shall no longer be termed forsaken, but you shall be called Hephzibah and your land Beulah because the Lord delights in you.

Be blessed in Jesus’ mighty name!
