March 4, 2021 Spirit Meat Devotional : Topic – DON’T GIVE THE DEVIL A HANDLE IN YOUR LIFE – 2 Corinthians 2:11
Our goal as Christians is to become Kingdom covenant compliant. But, I need to let you understand that there are born again people whose lives are manifesting negative ancestral covenant traits because they have certain behavioural patterns and certain practices.
The devil, like a lizard, does not enter your house unless there is a crack. The devil does not climb your tree to pluck the fruit of righteousness and redemption in your life unless there are handles for him to climb with. Many times, the handles are the behaviours that we have – crazy behaviours, foolish things that we do; like somebody that is stubborn and has his own will.
One day, I was talking to a brother who is quite stubborn. And the Lord told me that he worships at the temple of his own mind. Stubbornness is when you refuse to shift ground even when it is obvious that you are wrong. Many women are married to stubborn men. Everybody knows he is wrong, but he insists on having his own way. That is what that devil in his ancestral line is going to use to climb into his life as a born-again man who is Holy Ghost filled.
Some people’s parents are divorced, and that devil is going to come into their lives and put a desire for something wrong inside them. I asked a brother why he is always proposing to sisters that will say no to him. I told him to settle down and find a sister at his level that will honour and respect him.
PRAYER: I declare in the name of Jesus, I will never become covenant compliant to negative ancestral flows. Amen!
