TOPIC: WAR AGAINST DEVOURERS
Fire Scripture: Jeremiah 30:16-17
To devour is to swallow or eat up hungrily, voraciously or ravenously. To devour is to consume destructively, recklessly or wantonly. The Bible identifies the power called ‘the devourer’. In Joel 2:25, the Bible identifies the locust, cankerworm, caterpillar, palmerworm as powers that can destructively eat up a man’s years. In Jeremiah 30:16-17, the Bible talks of ‘those that devour thee’, symbolising men.
Devourers can be acquired or programmed into people’s lives. Devourers can also be walked into consciously or unconsciously and can also walk into a man. The agenda of the devourer is to scatter, waste, destroy and collapse every effort you make to get better and bigger. This is why, as believers we must wage a powerful war against devourers. Beloved, you do not have to be a helpless prey to the devourer. God has provided veritable weapons you can use against any devourer that the enemy has assigned against your life.
Let us examine them: The first weapon is submission. You must submit totally to the will of God. You should pay your tithes faithfully (Malachi 3:11) and engage in effectual and fervent praying. The second weapon you can use against the devourer is to mind who you associate with. Evil association and unholy communication can open the door of your life to the devourer. Also, you should mind what is right to buy and what is not right to buy. In addition, you should avoid anything that leads you to wasteful spending.
Pray to the Holy Spirit for the grace and discipline to have maintenance culture and for things to be durable in your hand. The devil and his cohorts are devourers. They devour destinies, marriages, ministries, businesses and careers as well as finances. Your guarantee for keeping devourers at bay or overcoming them is to be born again.
When you dwell in the secret place of the most High, you will abide under the shadow of the Almighty. New birth provides you divine covering. You should also let the word of God dwell in you richly. Read God’s word daily and live by it. It is also important for you to live a holy life. By so doing, you will not open doors to demons in your life. Finally, it is important that you pray without ceasing and be obedient to the Holy Spirit.
Memory Verse: Malachi 3:11 “And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts”.
Motivational Quote: Light can devour the darkness but darkness cannot consume light.
Prophetic Word: The powers assigned to eat up what you have laboured to gather shall stumble and fall, in the name of Jesus.
