There are some operations in the spirit realm that you need to be aware of so that the enemy will not outwit you. The operation of seducing spirits is such that they lead the people of God astray and away from the intention of God for them.
1. SEXUAL SEDUCTION (Proverbs 7:6-23): When we hear about seducing spirits, most people assume that it is referring to the operation of whorish women who may lure men into the sin of sexual immorality. However, sexual seduction or seduction into sexual sins is the lowest level of the operation of seducing spirits. It is important that you shield yourself from such operations.
2. PROBLEMS SEDUCING PEOPLE AWAY FROM THEIR APPOINTED PLACE: This was the seduction that lured Elimelech away from his appointed place, to the point that his priesthood was short-lived and his young wife became widowed. This is the most prevalent operation of seducing spirits. This way, seducing spirits lure people away from their appointed place by leading them to make permanent decisions based on temporary problems.
Whatever your problem or situation is, beware of making permanent decisions based on temporary problems. Don’t let the devil entice you away from the place God has put you for divine partnership because of what you are presently going through. I recall a girl who had problems passing the Senior Secondary School Certificate Examinations when she was a steadfast Christian but then she decided to backslide, and that year she passed the exams. In this case, seducing spirits of problems lured her away from the Lord.
PRAYER: Lord, I refuse every temptation of the enemy against the highest purpose of God for my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
