Do you like to receiving blessings and favor from the Lord? Do you like connections that God makes for you divinely without having to call anyone to make it happen for you? Do you like to be surprised by checks in the mail, walking in divine health from the Lord and having peace 24/7? Do you like to be blessed with an all expense paid vacation to a tropical paradise in the middle of winter? Who doesn’t love that kind of life? Yet many of us are living lives that block the blessings and favor from occurring due to wounds in our souls from others that have hurt us where we still have unforgiveness, bitterness, anger, jealousy, pride, controlling / manipulation and even what would be considered operating in witchcraft, even though we have attended church or have operated in a ministry for many years.
When we operate out of a wounded soul we do things that are of the enemy and not of God. We are not pure and righteous before the Lord and when we are hearing the enemy whisper to us in our minds, we do things to others that are not good. We betray confidences out of a selfish motive. We look to serve ourselves and get jealous of others who the Lord is blessing. We get mad at God, demanding “what about me?!” Therefore we limit God from blessing us with an increase in finances, divine favor, healthy new relationships, divine heath, and walking in His peace. Why would God bless you with more when you are going to hurt His people by doing things that the enemy tells you to do?
When we grow up the enemy begins to try to hurt our soul (body, mind and emotions) through myriad of ways. Fathers that are too busy to spend time with you, are critical of you, reject you, or even emotionally, physically or sexually abusive. Mothers that control and manipulate your every move to the point that you cannot do anything unless they approve of it. Siblings that compete with you, lie about you or gossip behind your back. Relatives, friends, strangers, teachers, and others who say words to you to put you down, lie, and betray you.
What happens when we get hurt by other people? The enemy begins to whisper in your head to you and you listen. He speaks mostly truth but then states a lie to get you off course. Such as “Your father is just too busy for you, and never really wanted you.” So then you continue to hear his voice not realizing that it is a demonic spirit whispering to you for your entire life, telling you to do things that continue to sabotage your life decisions. Things such as “You should look at pornography to get the sexual release you need” or “Men are all bad so get in a relationship with them and then really let them have it to pay back your dad for all the pain he caused you!”
Then when you get into a church or ministry, you continue to hear the enemy whisper to you, even though you may operate in the gifts of tongues, healing and prophecy. But your pride and jealousy voices come in from the enemy causing you to be jealous of others’ gifting or prideful about your own. Then you get mad at God for not blessing you as much as you see others being blessed.
Therefore what do you need to do? You need to truly choose to forgive all those who have hurt you for everything that they did. Then you need to be humbled and repent to God wholeheartedly for all that you have done to hurt others but also being honest for operating out of a sinful soul. Then you can command any demons to go to hell that have had a right to continue to talk to you loudly in your heads. Many Christians operate out of the Jezebel and Leviathan spirits. Jezebel causes people to have fear, jealousy, control, manipulation, lust for sex and power, anger, etc. Leviathan causes people to have pride, twist the truth in their minds of reality, cause pain in their backs and neck, insomnia, headaches, scoliosis, Fibromyalgia, Lupus, cancer, Bipolar, etc.
Once the demons no longer have a legal right to torment you with their loud voices, you will be able to walk in peace, purity and righteousness and the voice of the enemy will be much quieter. Then the Lord can really open up the blessings from heaven and you will see huge increases in His anointing over your life. You will love people from a pure heart and not a selfish, perverse and jealous heart. Then you will be able to walk in divine health and in peace 24/7 not scheming how to be more selfish and jealous of others. You will no longer strive with your spouse or other friends. You will not take an offense. God will then be able to bless you financially because you will not use the money for selfish gain, but for Kingdom purposes. It truly will be living in a blessed life as you will not have to strive to manipulate others to get you what the enemy is telling you to do.
Malachi 3:10-12 states “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this, “10 Says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pure out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it. 11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, So that he will not destroy the fruit for you in the field,” Says the Lord of hosts; 12 “And all nations will call you blessed, For you will be a delightful land,” Says the Lord of hosts.
So get your soul cleaned out so that the enemy will have no right to stop all blessings from flowing to you from the Lord. When the enemy has no legal right to torment you anymore, the Lord will be able to bless you in every way possible because you will be operating in purity and godliness.
