Ponder And Practice

                                                                         because they have become doomed to destruction.

                                              Neither will I be with you anymore, unless you destroy the accursed from among you”

Dearly beloved in Christ,

I greet you in the sweet name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Once I was invited by the owner of an establishment to come to their boundary to pray for them. It was an establishment involved in electrical and civil works which had been flourishing for a long time. Many were employed in it. It had a number of projects on the anvil.  All of a sudden everything seemed to come to a standstill. Shortage was looming large over it. In this state I had been invited to pray for them. I counselled them to remove all the idols in the area, but they said that there was no idol in their boundary. I pointed to them that the reason for the present state of affairs was only because of the presence of idols. They then searched every nook and corner of the area. All their servants searched the building for idols. None was found. Then they began to search the basement of the building which had been lent on rent for conducting dancing classes to one of the owner’s friends. He used the basement for some time and then left it. When they searched the place, there was a wooden box filled with idols. When that was removed, their business began to thrive so much that they could buy a house and some 100 acres of land.

Dearly beloved in Christ, when any of the abominable cursed things exists in our boundary, we would begin to incur loss and destruction in our undertakings. When we remove them, it would pave the way for blessings to abound.

May the Lord bless us!
