DON’T ALLOW SATAN IN YOUR SPIRIT

Read Proverbs 20:27
27. The spirit of a man is the lamp of the Lord, searching all the inner depths of his heart.

MEMORISE: The spirit of a man is the lamp of the Lord, searching all the inner depths of his heart (Proverbs 20:27)

EXPOSITION
It is believed in several quarters that man is tripartite, i.e. comprises body, soul and spirit. The spirit of man is so important in his makeup. It has been variously described as man’s essence, life-force, and inner self. Basically, it is what sustains man (Pro. 15:13; 16:32; 17:22; 18:14; 20:27; 25:28), and the medium of communication between him and the Divine (God). When a man’s spirit is under the devil’s control, it is a great disaster, because the following will be happening:
1. Becoming the devil’s image, since the devil is hovering over his spirit, thus replicating himself in the man; and
2. There will be absence of light on the candle of the person’s spirit (cf. Prov. 20:27; 1 Jn. 3:13ff). He who loses his light loses his destiny. This accounts for why some people blindly launch out before their times, thus resulting in burn-out before getting to their destinies. May that not be your lot. Amen.
But, how do people get under this dangerous and disastrous control of the devil? Basically, he who doesn’t surrender his life to Christ would have to be tormented by the devil (Jas. 4:7). Also, sin locks one’s spirit under the devil’s bondage (Rom. 6:16; Heb. 2:15; 1 Jn. 3:8,9). For instance, sinful relationships and unholy sexual intercourse (premarital and extramarital) result in terrible blood covenants that have destroyed so many lives and destinies. These sinful involvements put people under satanic kingdom in the forms of demonic possession, consciously and unconsciously (cf. Mk. 16:9; Lk. 8:2), demonic obsession (the devilish disturbances), demonic vexation, e.g. insanity, convulsion, etc. (Matt. 17:15-18), and demonic oppression, e.g. Perpetual sicknesses, barrenness, etc. (cf. Matt. 12:22).
The only way out is to come to Jesus who has the power to deliver from the devil’s control (Acts 4:12; 10:38; 1 Cor. 15:57; 1 Jn. 3:8). Have you accepted His Lordship? If not, do that now!

PRAYER POINTS:
1. Because I have accepted Jesus as my personal Lord and Saviour, I withdraw my spirit from the control of the devil and his demons, in Jesus’ name.
2. Lord, take total charge of my life, in every respect, in Jesus’ name.
3. Pray against the operations of the devil in our schools, from the pre-elementary to the tertiary institutions.
