SCRIPTURE: Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 1 Peter 5:8.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Deprivation is one weapon satan uses to fight people.
Our anchor Scripture reveals that the devil, as a roaring lion, walks day and night seeking whom he may devour. There are various ways satan fights the people of God.
In our study today, we shall look at two of those ways.
Deprivation is one weapon satan uses to fight people. This is a situation where the devil deprives people of the good things of life. It is a state of lack and poverty.
Let me give you an example. In those days, when someone was sick and taken to the hospital, no one would ask them for money at first, especially when the case was an emergency or a life-threatening one.
But now, what is happening is terrible. Someone who is taken to the hospital, and may need to have an emergency surgery, would be asked to pay first before the surgery is conducted. And if he does not have the money, he would be asked to leave the hospital. In other words, even if he dies on the way, there is no problem. What a heart!
The lack of money has killed many people. Someone couldn’t go to school because his parents are dead and he has no money for school fees. Deprivation is one of the weapons the devil uses to fight people’s destiny. But today, every situation of deprivation in your life is arrested in Jesus’ Name.
This is a spell of disfavour used by the devil to fight people. There are people who are hated by those who don’t even know them. People seeing them for the first time are angry at their face. In fact, some people will see you for the first time, and your face looks to them like someone who had annoyed them before. That is a spell of rejection.
Rejection is the opposite of favour and acceptance. If you carry the fragrance of supernatural favour, even those who never knew you before would be excited to see you.
Beloved, every spell of rejection and disfavour working against your life is broken today in Jesus Name.
Remember this: Deprivation is one weapon satan uses to fight people.
1. By all means, reject the spell of deprivation and rejection.
2. Ask God to release upon you His fragrance of supernatural favour and acceptance.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I receive the grace for Kingdom wealth and acceptability, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
