One of the major factors that determine your outcome in life and destiny is the spirit you carry. Do not rate a man until you are aware of the spirit operating in his life. A man cannot be accurately rated by his physical life alone. It is the spirit that is operating in a man’s life that determines the outcome of that man’s life not his effort alone.

It is the spirit that works with a man that determines what happens to him. Strange experiences happen to many people because they have strange spirits in their lives which they may not be aware of. We see in the life of Joseph that he had more than a coat of many colours, he had the presence of God, which determined his manifestation through his journey to the top. 

 And the Lord was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.  (Gen 39:2)

The prosperity of Joseph in slavery was tied to God’s presence with him. Life is full of people that have put in good effort but their results are always less than expected because there is a negative spirit working with or against them. The outcome of a man is not a function of his job or his location. Many have changed jobs and even relocated abroad and yet have no change of results and outcome. It is the spirit that works in your life that determines your steps, speed, accuracy and outcome in life.


You are either going to permit the right spirit to operate in your life or an evil spirit will function in your life. Life is not a vacuum. There is an ongoing interaction and eternal romance between man and spirit that we must understand. You must daily ensure that your interaction with the right spirit (Holy Spirit) is intact. As you maintain your intimacy with God through quiet time, regularly fellowship in Church, sound prayer and word life, you can be sure that you’ll keep the right spirit in your life.

Prayer: Lord, I receive grace to keep my relationship with the Lord and walk with the Holy Spirit all through my life; I eject every wrong spirit manifesting negative outcomes in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
