Breaking of Agreements. This is very common among Church going people. If you are a covenant breaker, God will not bless you. Don’t say, ‘I will’ when you don’t intend to. People tell all manner of lies to cover up. The beauty of the word of God is in learning how to apply it. Every lie you tell opens you up to a curse.
Josh. 9:18-19, “And the children of Israel smote them not, because the princes of the congregation had sworn unto them by the LORD God of Israel. And all the congregation murmured against the princes. But all the princes said unto all the congregation, we have sworn unto them by the LORD God of Israel: now therefore we may not touch them.” 2 Sam. 21:1-9, “Then there was famine in the days of David three years, year after year; and David enquired of the LORD. And the LORD answered, it is for Saul, and for his bloody house, because he slew the Gibeonites … And delivered them into the hands of the Gibeonites, and they hanged them in the hill before the LORD: and they fell all seven together, and were put to death in the days of harvest, in the first days, in the beginning of barley harvest.”
When the agreement that the children of Israel had with the Gibeonites was broken, Israel suffered a terrible consequence. Make up your mind that going forward, you will not break any covenant. Don’t be quick in entering into covenants either. It is very easy to enter into covenants, so be careful. The question of integrity is a very serious one and a lot of Christians have issues with it. That is why a lot of prayers don’t fly.
The Bible says in Psa. 66:18, “If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me.”
It is very easy to break covenants. Look inwards and ask yourself – where am I missing it? Where am I still entertaining lies? There is no small lie, “a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.” (Gal. 5:9). Anything that gives the enemy access to your life is a destroyer. The greatest blessing I derive from working in deliverance ministry is understanding of spiritual nature of things. It has helped me to run away from every form of defilement. It is so easy to be defiled in a very contaminated environment. It is as if everything around is programmed to defile you but it is your responsibility to raise the blood of Jesus against them. Pray – I have an inheritance, I am not ready to be short changed, I am not ready to eat swine’s food. My meat is to do the will of him who has called me. I am blessed beyond curse in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
