September 11, 2020 Spirit Meat Devotional :- PAYING THE PRICE FOR ZION WEALTH (1) – Isaiah 6:1
When someone who had been set up by a sugar daddy gives her life to Christ, the person experiences a shock. Having enjoyed a furnished rented apartment, a car, and sponsorship for her children in school, being born again means repenting of that wealth.
The first thing the man is going to do is to withdraw his provisions to threaten her and say she will soon come back. She gets an open invitation into the old life – “Anytime you change your mind, the door is always opened.”
When I meet such people, I tell them, “You will suffer,” but they don’t like to hear that. Not many of them survive it – they go back since they don’t want to suffer. You must be ready to suffer if the provision is not coming from God. Being ready to suffer is the way to Zion wealth, which is the way to divine lifting. “If it means I will suffer for what God has not given, I am ready to suffer”; that is the person that God will lift. Weaning some of those girls off sugar daddies is a laborious task because they are used to not wanting to suffer.
Before Isaiah saw the Lord, he had some terrible experiences. I tell such ladies, “You see, your King Uzziah is dead, therefore you will see hunger, you will know how hunger looks when it stands on two legs.” Do you think that is harsh? No! That is what will break that spirit of a vagabond; it will break that spirit of the prodigal son in your heart and feed you in the kingdom mode where you learn to wait for righteous provisions. If you are reading this, and God wants to wean you off sugar daddies and iniquitous relationships that bring money and wealth, be ready to suffer. After you have suffered for a while, then the mercy of God will catch you.
PRAYER: Father, I declare no vacancy for the vagabond and prodigal spirits in my life.
