RCCG OPEN HEAVEN, DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR SEPTEMBER 7, 2022 (MUSIC)
“But now bring me a minstrel. And it came to pass, when the minstrel played, that the hand of the LORD came upon him.” – (2 Kings 3:15)
READ: 1 Samuel 16:15-23 (KJV)
Music is a very powerful spiritual tool. It is so powerful that it actually carries spirits in it. Whenever evil spirits were tormenting King Saul, David would play his own godly music and all the evil spirits disturbing the king would leave the environment. When my Father-in-the-Lord was still with us here on earth, he taught us a lesson that the kind of music we play in our homes determines the kind of spirits that will be living with us. I used to love playing worldly music in those days.
That day when I realised that I had opened my home up to evil spirits because of the songs I was playing and singing along to, I eagerly rushed home after the service and destroyed all the cassettes. Could it be that the reason you pray and your prayers don’t get answered is that the Holy Spirit of God does not find your home conducive to dwell in?
Get rid of any such worldly songs in your home, phones and any other device now. Listen only to gospel songs and you will see the changes in your life within the next three months. When you wake up in the morning or are preparing to go out, sing praises to God. At every opportunity you have, just keep singing to Him. Get some hymns and worship songs saved on your phone and listen to them as often as you can and your life will not remain the same.
But now bring me a minstrel. And it came to pass, when the minstrel played, that the hand of the LORD came upon him. – (2 Kings 3:15)
I noticed many years ago that whenever the choir sang before I came up to preach, if they did very well, the Holy Spirit would flow seamlessly once I mounted the altar, but if they did not do so well, I would have to struggle a little at the beginning of the sermon before the Spirit begins to flow. I then discovered a minstrel who could play the saxophone and cause the Spirit of God to move greatly.
I told him to start playing right before I would come up to preach. That way, when the Spirit is already moving and this my son plays the saxophone, the power of God would already be at work all around the auditorium, with prophecies and miracles flowing soon after. Start using the power in godly music as from today.
Get rid of any worldly music around you and replace it with only godly music.
