Topic: The Therapy For Rebellion [Seeds of Destiny 15 August 2018 Daily Devotional]
Scripture: God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land Psalms 68:6.
Thought For The Day: If satan wants to destroy your destiny, he will send a rebellious friend your way.
The Scriptures make it clear that rebellion and disregard for spiritual authority destroy destiny. Lot, Absalom and Samson were practical examples of people who disregarded authorities and were ruined. They disregarded the authorities over their lives and they were tragically cut off from life in their primes, except for Lot whose life ended in shame.
In order not to end like them, what do we do? What is the therapy for the lifestyle of rebellion and disregard for authority?
1. Resist the spirit of rebellion
I made up my mind that I will never grow to an extent in any realm where I will not have the need for an authority over my life. Every single year, words are spoken over me by my spiritual father. Refuse the spirit of rebellion.
2. Decide to remain under authority
Decide to have a listening ear for the instructions of your spiritual authority. People who refuse to listen to spiritual authority usually end up grounded in life and destiny.
3. Avoid the company of the rebellious
Avoid the company of people who sit in church to criticize the church, preachers and their preaching’s.
Sometime ago, a young man who submits to me in ministry came to confess. He got connected to some people who disregard spiritual authority and they talked him out of submission to parental cover. As a result, things stopped working for him, so, he came back to confess and be prayed for.
If satan wants to destroy your destiny, he will send a rebellious friend your way; if he wants to ruin your future, he will send people around you who are not afraid to talk against higher authorities.
My counsel is, resist anything that will disconnect you from the higher authority over your life.
Remember this: If Satan wants to destroy your destiny, he will send a rebellious friend your way.
1. Fight the spirit of rebellion.
2. Avoid the company of the rebellious.
3. Decide to remain under spiritual authority.
Prayer: O Lord, I receive grace to be permanently under spiritual coverage. I reject every spirit of rebellion in my life, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
