Open Heavens Devotional by Pastor E.A. Adeboye
Memorise: He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:18
Read: Isaiah 28:18-21
I come from a family where our great-grandfather was a mighty warrior. He had several males and female slaves. At a particular time when his wife was pregnant, he impregnated one of his female slaves also. While his wife was well catered for, the slave girl was neglected so she cursed the family saying that because of the way she was treated, anytime a woman in that family delivers a baby girl, and tasted oil or salt within 7 days or 9 days if in the case of a boy, the child would die. They soon realised that the curse had become active in the family. So they ensured women who delivered kept away from salt and oil until I became born again and everything changed. You are a change agent and you are in your family to turn it around for good. May you not fail God in fulfilling His purpose in your family.
Some curses are as a result of efforts by parents to protect their children. They may take such children to oracles for protection and the children will grow up oblivious of the fact that such covenants will work against them (Joshua 9). A woman had four daughters who found it difficult to find husbands so she brought them for prayers. The Holy Spirit led us to ask some questions through which we discovered that each girl had been dedicated to Ifa oracle which claimed them as its bride. We prayed and those covenants were destroyed and within a year they all got married. Isaiah 28:18 says:
And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.
Have you been covenanted to some deity in your village, when you were young? You can be free today. Simply give your life to Jesus Christ and confess Him as your Lord and Saviour. Deliberately renounce any such covenants made between you and the deity, break the agreements and ask God to set you free. Every curse operating in your life, coming from past generations shall cease today in the name of Jesus Christ.
Ask that every curse you have placed on yourself be broken today.
