Scripture Reading: Numbers 23:8–10
“How shall I curse, whom God hath not cursed? or how shall I defy, whom the Lord hath not defied? For from the top of the rocks I see him, and from the hills I behold him: lo, the people shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations. Who can count the dust of Jacob, and the number of the fourth part of Israel? Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his!”
How can we be released from what is holding us down? The Lord God Almighty said to Pharaoh, “Let my people go that they may serve me…,” Exodus 7:16. Whatever is holding you down today, the Word of God is saying let my son go, let my daughter go that they may serve me. You need a release because when you are bound you cannot be productive.
Understanding what holds you captive and praying for a release from that stronghold is necessary because until you are released your progress will be limited.
To be held down, to be bound, is a disablement and a curse meant to prevent you from being effective and prosperous. You find out that you have blessings, but they are beyond your reach. Your abilities are limited, your circumstances are reduced. Your quality of life takes a turn for the worse and often, future generations are affected. I pray that we all be released from our strongholds, from our sin, in the name of Jesus.
Sin is disobedience to God and sin causes strongholds. Deuteronomy 28:15–67 talks about the sins and curses that come because of sin. To rid our lives of these we need to apply the blood of Jesus. The atonement that Jesus made to deliver us from our sins must come upon our lives in the name of Jesus.
Sin causes disablement and a curse; sin is stealing your tithe, stealing the tithe of God. The Word of God says that you are cursed because you have robbed me, even this whole nation. If you are not in the covenant of tithing, please, in your own interest, restore your relationship with God by tithing. Restore yourself by tithing ten percent of the little that you have now and walk with God in the tithing covenant. Another thing that causes a curse is trusting in man. Jeremiah 17:5 says, “Thus saith the Lord, Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.” Remove your trust from man and place it totally in God.
Adultery brings a curse. If you are in an adulterous relationship, I pray that you come out of it and walk with God in holiness and righteousness.
There are all kinds of curses: demonic curses, prophetic curses, territorial and community curses, self-imposed casual curses, family curses, friendly curses, parental curses, curses of the innocent, marital curses, curses of the avenger, dormant curses, oath-based curses, and more. My prayer today is that the blood of Jesus will set you free from every curse. Pray along with me and say, I break away from every curse operating in my family now in the name of Jesus. My life is not available; my life is no longer a place for your habitation; get out of my life now in the name of Jesus. I plead the blood of Jesus Christ and I break every curse operating in the life of anyone reading these words today. I pray that every curse of closed doors be reversed and that the doors begin to open. Father God, deliver your people from the stronghold of the waster of opportunities and the stronghold of the curses of the waster of money, of resources, of time, of blessings, of health, of marriage, of birthright, of a calling, of destiny. Father, all these wasting powers of sin such as witchcraft powers, curses and evil covenants, familiar spirits, sexual perversions, drugs and alcohol, and unfriendly friends, we ask that you deliver us from them in the name of Jesus. In the power of the blood of Jesus, I decree a divine release for the children of the living God who are in bondage to the enemy. For whom the Son sets free is free indeed. Amen.
If you have any known sins, repent now. Pray for the grace of complete obedience and strong faith in the living God. Wage war against all the things that are wasting your life. Barricade your life with the blood of Jesus and the wall of fire, and commission the angels of the living God to stand guard over you. Pray against every power that does not want the children of God to rise to their next level. Pray that every power that speaks frustration and hindrances into the life of the children of God be eliminated in Jesus’ name.
Father, I pray against the manipulator of the children of God. Any spirits that are deceiving the children of God, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I bind you and cast you out.
Father God Almighty, deliver us by your strong hand. Many find themselves in a mess, being frustrated and confused, living in a stagnant state, and with no help around. O living God, they feel forsaken by their family, but Lord your Word says that when my father and my mother forsake me, the Lord will pick me up. Lord God, you are the one who takes up the curse of your children; take up now, O Lord. You are the man of war, you are a consuming fire; you never lose a battle. You can be provoked into action and we pray that in the name of Jesus you will respond to every need in the life of everyone today.
Father God, let there be a release from every curse today in Jesus’ name.
