Demons Hinder Destinies [Tuesday 8 September, 2015]

Memorise: But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly
Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. –
Mathew
15:13

Read: Luke 8:1-3 (KJV)

1 And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and
village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the
twelve were with him,

2 And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities,
Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils,

3 And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others,
which ministered unto him of their substance.

Bible in one year: Exodus 18:1-20:21,
Romans 9:19-10:4

MESSAGE:

As a believer in Christ, one of the traits that should differentiate you from
an ordinary fellow is the ability to cast out demons (Mark 16:17). However, if demons are tormenting you and you
fail to do something about them, don’t expect God to do anything either. He has
already done what He should do by giving you authority over them. He expects
you to exercise this authority before He takes the next step of enforcement.
The ball is now in your court; if you fail to pass it to Him, He will leave you
with the ball. In 2 Kings 4:1-7, we
read of a window whose husband was a prophet. The man died and left her with
two boys and a lot of debt. Initially, when the creator came calling, she was
not the only one owing money, she might have said to herself like some people
in Nigeria would say: “Even Nigeria as a nation is indebted, and so in America
for that matter; so what is the big deal if I owe people money”? Although the
Almighty God was there on His throne with all His power, might, zeal and
resources, He could not do anything to help her for as long as she tolerated
poverty, lack and debt. But one day, tired of repeated fruitless visits, her
creator came and threatened to sell her sons into slavery if she was unable to
pay the debt. Pushed to the wall, she cried out for help, and help came. She
was delivered from the threat that would have hindered her boys from fulfilling
their destinies. When will you be tired of managing or condoning your
unpleasant situation?

Let us note a few things about deliverance. It is a great thing to be
delivered. Mary Magdalene was delivered of seven powerful demons and she
eventually became a divine treasurer. Her destiny was to be a divine treasurer
ministering to the needs of Jesus, but for as long as the demons were in her,
she could not fulfil this. This simply tells us that one way the devil tries to
hinder a person from fulfilling his or her destiny is by sending one or more
demons to possess him or her. When such demons come into that individual, they
will give the original purpose of God. When an evil spirit took over the
position of the Holy Spirit in the heart of King Saul, he became tormented.
Demons torment their victims tremendously. If you have been delivered from the
hands of demons, you will appreciate your freedom. Are you still allowing
demons to hinder your destiny? It’s time to confront them today! Jesus wants to
set you free. You just need to cooperate with Him.

Prayer Point: Father, send Your fire to chase out the presence and
manipulating effect of demons in my life, family and ministry.
