SCRIPTURE OF THE WEEK: PSALM 1:1-3
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.”
Beloved, be aware of this: There is so much counterfeit information in the media and the world lives on these lies. Scripture tells us the deceivers get deceived and the liars believe in lies. So if we are in a place of deceiving and being deceived, lying and being lied to all the time, we become victims. Two more areas agents of the enemy gather to pray against:
- If the enemy cannot get you, he goes against your children. Children are precious. They are gifts from above. God lent them to us to nurture.
‘Honour’ is the first commandment in the Bible with a promise attached to it. “Honour your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise: “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth” (Ephesians 6:2). Honour them now, not when they are dead and gone! God says when you honour the elders you honour Him!
- Your Provision
- God said if you follow me, love your family, love your children, everything in this world is yours. You will sow and you will reap. But when man failed, he rebelled against God, the Bible says in Genesis 3:17, ‘Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it’: “Cursed is the ground for your sake; In toil you shall eat of it All the days of your life. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you, and you shall eat the herb of the field. In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are, and to dust you shall return.” The woman was deceived because the enemy deceived her. However, Man lost his dominion over the air, over the land, over the creatures, over the gold, the silver and he had to work. When he works, he finds he not only gets the fruit but he gets the thorns and thistles. He has to sweat to earn his living. Why? Because he brought division.
Beloved, God did not curse the man or the woman. God is saying here because you disobeyed Me you have activated the curse. Your disobedience has given Satan the right to rob you and curse you. Where you’re supposed to be blessed you’re cursed now. But Jesus has come to destroy the work of the enemy and set you free! He took the curse upon Himself so that you and I can be free!
These are the four areas the enemy is focused at destroying! Unity, Marriage, Family and your Prosperity (Blessings)! All these are your inheritance being a child of God! Set yourself Free from all Limitations to Accomplish All Divine Assignments!
