MFM DAILY DEVOTIONAL 11TH SEPTEMBER 2020
Welcome to today’s special devotional. One spiritual troublemaker went to a village, generally regarded as highly demonic, to hold a crusade. As he was preaching, he discovered that his interpreter was becoming very afraid. When he said certain things, the man simply refused to interpret them.
The man then assured the interpreter that he (the preacher) was the one talking, therefore he should not be afraid but should interpret whatever he had said. As the man was preaching, people were putting their hands into their pockets and bringing out their juju (charms). But the man began to pray in the spirit and was not afraid. What followed was that most of the youth in the village who used to partake in the worship of the village idols, got converted. They started to come to his church in the evenings when he held revival services.
Certain demonic villagers got angry at the success of the crusade and planned to attack the church with their juju (charms). On the first day, they gathered themselves at the back of the congregation and started to invoke the powers of their juju. But the Christians were unmoved. On the second day, when they came, the Christians were ready for them. As they started using their charms, the preacher ordered the Christians to “bring out their own charms too.” So, they acted as if they actually had something in their pockets. And as soon as they brought their hands out of their pockets and burst into praises, confusion immediately ensued. Some of the men carrying charms instantly got paralysed.
Beloved, these Christians did not need to ask for angelic assistance. They only used one of their weapons, which is praises; and pandemonium occurred. The Bible is very clear about confident actions, based on the power of God. When you take such actions based on faith, God will just be looking at you because everything you need is already within you.
When Christians become very bold, as it used to be in the past, they will not fear all those things that witch doctors are wearing on their necks. They will speak the word of God and command the fire of God to fall. But to do this, you need to know the weapons and be able to use them with confidence and boldness.
- Witchcraft serpent fashioned against my blood, depart now and go back to the sender, in the name of Jesus.
- Every agenda of the serpent for my destiny, scatter, in the name of Jesus.
- Holy Ghost fire, penetrate my body, soul and spirit and destroy every plantation of the serpent, in the name of Jesus.
- Every serpent of my father’s house assigned against my destiny, loose your hold, in the name of Jesus.
- My Father, arise and uproot from my system every plantation of the serpent, in the name of Jesus.
- Serpents of my father’s house, dragons of my father’s house, die by fire, in the name of Jesus.
- Holy Ghost, arise in the thunder of Your fire, destroy every plantation of darkness, in my body, in the name of Jesus.
Beloved Reader, if you are yet to give your life to Christ Jesus, I would advise you to do so before you continue in this reading. Remember! The Lord Jesus in John 3:3 says, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless ye are born again, ye cannot see the kingdom of God.”
And remember there is nothing like once born again, you remain born again forever. Examine yourself on regular basis. If you are ready to give your life to Christ Jesus, please pray the displayed prayer below in faith:
Lord Jesus, come into my life. I accept You as my Lord and Personal Saviour. I believe in my heart You died and rose from the dead to save me. I confess all my sin, have mercy on me, forgive me all sin, give grace to go and sin no more. Thank You Lord for saving me, in Jesus name Amen.
