20 July 2023: YOUR WORDS AND YOUR WILL – James 3:1-2; Matthew 16:24


Let us continue from where we stopped yesterday. James 3:2 tells us that you can bring your body under control. Many years ago, my wife and I decided to stop drinking carbonated drinks. I just told her that day after taking some bottles of Coca-Cola that taking it was not good for us and she agreed. Since that decision was made, we have not taken carbonated drinks in our house. We neither prayed nor fasted about it.

You have the power of your will to stop whatever you do not like.

As powerful as God is, He cannot force your will. If you have ever made the decision to stop an action or practice and you still repeat it or find it difficult to stop, then you need deliverance. It means a demon is involved.

Matthew 16:24b says, “If any man will come after me, let him…”. The power is in your will. If God Almighty cannot force your will, then Satan cannot force it. When somebody says, “Satan made me do it”, it’s a lie. Satan has never made anyone do anything; people choose to do whatever they do by their will. No one must blame the devil for whatever mistake they make. If you blame the devil for your mistake, you will not be able to stop it.

PRAYER: Father, I thank You that You gave me the power to stop whatever I do not like. I now cancel every negative order I have made in the spirit, in Jesus’ name. Amen!

2 Chronicles 1:1-3:17; Romans 6:1-23; Psalm 16:1-11; Proverbs 19:20-21
