RCCG OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR OCTOBER 4, 2022 (EXPOSING DEMONIC OPERATIONS 3)
TOPIC: EXPOSING DEMONIC OPERATIONS 3
“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” – (Philippians 3:14)
READ: John 5:1-11 (KJV)
One other way by which demons operate is what is called suppression. Suppression is when the fellow being tormented is already down and the enemy is making sure he doesn’t rise.
The man at the pool of Bethesda was beside it, hoping to get his healing. Every year, he saw people get healed, yet he remained on the same spot. There are people who have been on the same spot for several years spiritually – in their careers, financially and so on. That suppression is over now, in Jesus’ name.
Many people take it lightly when they have been on the same spot for years. They don’t realise that they are giving an opportunity to demons to suppress them. The day the veil is removed from their eyes and they fight back, then they will move forward. You will move forward in Jesus’ name. The man at the pool of Bethesda was in front of the Lord Jesus Christ who could heal him, yet he didn’t ask for healing. I decree that the Lord will move you forward Himself today. You will begin to soar high, in Jesus’ name.
When I was studying for my Masters of Science at the University of Lagos, there was a man there who was an assistant lecturer. After completing my studies, I became a staff of the University, obtained my Ph.D. and got promoted to a higher level than this man. That man’s experience is a classic case of suppression.
The solution to suppression is in God’s anointing. Isaiah 10:27 says that anointing will break the yoke that the devil puts on a person to limit his movement. The man at the pool of Bethesda stayed there because he wanted to contact the anointing that flowed there once a year. Thank God he met the anointed One Himself and that day, the yoke was broken.
In Acts 3:2-11, on the day the man at the Beautiful Gate came in contact with the anointing, he began “walking and leaping and praising God”. Blind Bartimaeus had been in the same spot for many years too but screamed at the top of his voice for Jesus to have mercy on him. He did not stop until the Lord had mercy on Him and broke the yoke of the devil in his life.
Cry to God for mercy and ask Him to break the yoke of stagnation in your life.
