Yesterday, we highlighted that identification of the ruling spirits in the land is one of the first steps in spiritual warfare. Some trends and patterns will point out the spirits operating within an environment.
When our church was established in one of the cities in southwest Nigeria, one of the things people told us was that the people in that town never took the things of God seriously but I didn’t accept that. When we arrived there, we observed that churches waited for people to arrive before starting the service. Most times, they continued the worship session of the service until people arrived for service. I didn’t do that but rather started the service as scheduled and started preaching when it was time. I observed that the same people that didn’t come to church on time never went late to work on Monday. Why then should they come late to church? That’s the spirit of the land and that spirit fights the church, not the government. So, as Christians, we must not team up with the devil.
One of the things reigning in our nation is abandoned projects. There is a tendency for that spirit to assault you to abandon a project that you started. If you started a building project and stopped because things were not just working, go back there and finish the work. The spirit in the land is responsible for men starting something and not growing it to maturity. If you don’t fight it, there is a high probability for that spirit to get you.
That is why you must go in the power of the opposite spirit to disallow that flow from coming upon you.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to drive everything I have started in You to completion. I will not be a victim of abandoned projects in Jesus’ name. Amen.
