20 November 2022: DEALING WITH THE ENEMIES OF INTERCESSION (3) – 1 Peter 5:5-6

Today, we will continue our exposition on the enemies of intercession.

5. Pride: The problem with pride as seen in today’s text is that the proud man is the direct enemy of God; God Himself will stop him. God cannot have anything to do with a proud person. Such a person cannot develop intimacy with the Lord and will not be useful to God in the place of intercession. To be useful to God in the ministry of intercession, you will need to cultivate a humble heart before the Lord. No matter who we are or what God is doing through our vessel, all glory must always go back to Him. You must never be too big in your own eyes.

6. Negative Emotions: There is no way you can perceive a divine whisper or the nudge of the Holy Spirit with negative emotions. Negative emotions are insulators in the spirit realm; they don’t allow divine communication to get through to you. There might be an impending danger or a matter that needs urgent attention and the Holy Spirit needs to bring this to your attention. However, with negative emotions, it will be impossible for you to get that divine signal because negative emotions are insulators of divine signals. Women, especially married ones, must pay attention to this while relating to their husbands.

It is very easy for the devil to corner you into having negative emotions in marriage. Don’t allow tension in your homes.

Anything that brings tension into your emotions is the enemy of your fellowship with God. Get rid of it. Don’t tolerate negative emotions.

PRAYER: Lord, help me to bring my emotions under the control of the Holy Spirit in Jesus’ name. Amen!
