understand that the devil specializes in weaponizing poverty; it is part of his programme. Why does he do it? The reason is not farfetched; it is to create hardship and make things unnecessarily hard for people. Poverty was never the original design of God for man, financial limitation is of the devil; he specializes in creating scarcity, creating lack and tightening up things, no matter the name it is called, it is a distortion. His intention is to create hardship and make man labour with noting to show for it. The devil likes doing this because it makes his evangelism easier; ‘just bow to me and I will give you’. A lot of people succumb and by so doing, they collect gifts from the devil. Every gift that comes from the devil has a seal, he does not give anything freely; he puts his mark on every of his gifts. Every gift from the devil exposes the recipient to his control. In other words, any gift from the devil yokes the recipient to him; they become susceptible and this gives him the opportunity to begin to exert control; this is one of the ways by which the enemy operates.
There are people today who are ready to sell their salvation for a pittance; that is why you must have dominion over financial hardship. The devil wants you to worship him before he gives you anything, he wants you to serve mammon knowing full well that once you begin to serve mammon, you can no longer serve God. You cannot serve God and mammon at the same time (Matt. 6:24). I strongly believe that if you aggregate the sins that are committed in a single day and classify them under various headings, the sins classified under money will be the highest and most prevalent. This is because many people today worship money. Pray –
- Heavenly Father, make it impossible for me to ever bow to any satanic pressure whether it is economic, or social, or financial, Lord, do not allow me to ever bow to any satanic pressure in the name of Jesus.
- Lord, I have chosen to worship you the only Living God, Eternal Rock of Ages, you are my king, you are my God, you are my treasure, thank you Most Holy God, I worship you, in Jesus name. Amen.
