DAY 18: TUESDAY, 19TH JANUARY 2016
FOCUS: DESTROYING SATANIC REMOTE CONTROL AND ANTENNA OBSTRUCTING OUR SUCCESS AND PROGRESS.
Text: Acts 16:16-26
INSIGHT FOR EFFECTIVE PRAYER
The exploits in the communication and other technology sectors in the world in recent years was phenomenal. Many of the devices produced, which are available for use today are capable of maneuvering information and events phenomenally. Similar exploits have been going on in the spirit realm for a long time. Those of us who are involved in spiritual matters must not be ignorant of this. Otherwise, satanic forces would take undue advantage to maneuver things negatively to our detriment.
There is a big lesson to learn from Paul and Sila’s experience. First and foremost, they were introduced to us in this passage through their unceasing in prayer.
It is good that we, also are starting this year with prayers.
In the story, Satan anointed a damsel and sent her to disguise as a believer. She went there and became actively involved in the Church programme. If not for Paul’s spiritual sensitivity that discerned her as an agent of Satan; the Church would have been in trouble. The young lady was there to serve as satanic antenna to manipulate the Church through the remote control of her master.
A similar thing is happening in the Church of today. Our inability to achieve our God-given goals in the Church is attributed to Satanic obstruction through his agents. They come to the Church and pretend to be children of God, but they are wolves in sheep’s skin. Many of them have been warmly accepted into the fellowship of the believers and are causing serious havocs. In fact, some of them are occupying sensitive positions to execute satanic agenda. Unlike Paul of old, many of us in the Church are not prepared to rock the boat against these agents of darkness. The reasons are not far-fetched:
- We fail to discern satanic agents through intimate fellowship with the Holy Spirit.
- We erroneously assume, all those who come to the Church are true believers.
- We don’t want to offend anybody. So, if we love the Lord, love the Church and are concerned about the will of God, we must pull down satanic antenna and destroy its remote control.
