ENLIST A STRONGER ALLY

ENLIST A STRONGER ALLY

Its amazing that some people who need deliverance do not realize their need; rather they look for others to deliver while they remain in their bondages. In any way you need deliverance, it shall be given to you this season. If God has made several promises to you, and at the time they should be fulfilled none of them is coming to pass, you need deliverance. When it appears you have a very bleak future and you have no vision or direction for the next two or more years, you surely need deliverance. If there is sorrow all around you or you are always quarrelling at home with your spouse and cannot even tell the cause, you need deliverance.

Moreover, who can deliver? When your ally is weaker or less fortified than your enemy, both you and the one you have invited to help you fight will end up as preys to the enemy. The one you should therefore invite to help you defeat an enemy stronger than you must be stronger than the enemy. In a battle between two strong people, it takes the stronger fellow to defeat his opponent, strip him of his weapons and take over his spoils according to Luke 11:21-22. If an individual wants to conduct deliverance for you, make sure he or she has the backing of the Almighty God. Today, we have several deliverance ministers who are self-sent and therefore have no divine approval. There are some deliverance ministers that will ask you to pay before you can see them. Both you and the fellow will be in trouble if God is not with him like He was with Jesus (Acts 10:38). Also, the fellow to conduct the deliverance must be under authority or else you may return home with more problems than you went with. In Luke 7:6-8, the centurion who went to the Lord for help was under authority and Jesus Himself was under the authority of the Father. When the sons of Sceva attempted to deliver somebody, they were wounded, disgraced and had to take to their heels. Meanwhile, the situation of the fellow they were trying to deliver remained the same. Enlist the right ally when fighting a stronger enemy.

Memorise:
But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.
Luke 11:22
Read:
Luke 11:21-22

Bible in one year:
2 Chronicles 23-25

Prayer point:
Father, in all my lifes battles, never leave me alone. Fight for me.

It may be that Jehovah will look on mine affliction, and that Jehovah will requite me good for my being cursed this day. And David and his men went by the way; and Shimei went along on the hill’s side over against him, and cursed as he went, and threw stones at him, and cast dust.

ARE YOU FRUITFUL?
Open Heavens

by Pastor E.A Adeboye

ARE YOU FRUITFUL?

The words “Be fruitful,” appear in the Bible for the first time in Genesis 1:28. Although it came as a commandment, it can also be taken as a blessing. Because it is a commandment, God expects all His creation to comply with it by bearing fruit and multiplying through self-reproduction. On the other hand, if...More
