READ : EZEKIEL 36 : 24 – 30.
24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all
countries, and will bring you into your own land.
25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your
filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I
will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of
27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes,
and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my
people, and I will be your God.
29 I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn,
and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.
30 And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that
ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR : JUDGES 15 : 1 – 16 : 22 AND MATTHEW 26 : 69 – 27 : 14.
As a child of God, it is part of your benefits to enjoy continuous spiritual
victory over the kingdom of Satan. The devil is the last person that would like
to see you saved. He is committed to anything that will pull you down from your
new-found faith. You have to be aggressive in your response to him ( 1 Peter
5 : 8 – 9 ). Jesus with those words granted you authority as a believer in Luke
10 : 19 :
“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all
the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
It is this authority that you use in commanding respect. It is this authority
that will make demons to bow. You use the authority in Jesus to put challenges
events and circumstances where they belong. For instance, it is the authority
backing a policeman that makes him simply raise his hands to stop oncoming
vehicles. As long as he is in that uniform, he will command obedience. If you are
born-again, authority has been given to you. You are to make use of this
authority to preach good tidings to the meek. You are to bind up the broken-
hearted. You are to decree liberty to those who are captives and the opening of
prisons to those that are bound. Your authority is to be used for commanding
the devil and his activities out of your jurisdiction.
Some times ago, while travelling to Ilesha in southwest Nigeria, I saw a vehicle
parked along the way at Ile-Ife. The bonnet of the car was opened, and on
closer inspection, I saw one of my daughters standing by the car. I decided to
park and find out what the matter was. I asked her what was wrong with her
car. She replied that there was nothing wrong with the car, but that
everything was wrong with her personally. She told me that the baby in her
womb had not moved for several days, and that the doctor had confirmed that
the baby was dead. She parked her car to contemplate on what she should do.
Since I was with her at that point, she asked me to just lay my hands on her
stomach and speak the word of power so that the baby would come back to life.
I did as she requested and continued with my journey. The Lord honoured my
words, and that child came back to life again. This same child graduated from
the university in 2003. This miracle was made possible because of the benefits
of salvation. Without salvation, I couldn’t have commanded even a dead
cockroach to come back to life, but in salvation lies the power of resurrection.
This is the way I know that everything dead in your business is coming back to
life, and the supreme power of God is swallowing up all the powers of the enemy
in your life in Jesus’ Name.
PRAYER POINT :
By the authority given to me by Jesus, I destroy everything limiting God’s
benefits in my life
