Slaying Our Little Gods

READ THIS AND GET YOUR BREAKTHROUGH:  Are God’s promises not being fulfilled in your life? Has Christ made some promises to you through His word, but you are still waiting on them to show up in your life? Do you have areas in your life where you don’t do what you know you should do? You hear God’s word. You agree with His word. You determine that you are going to do the right thing, but then you don’t. You even feel guilty about it and you tell yourself that you are definitely going to do the right thing, but then you don’t. Are you struggling in any area of your life to do what you know you should do? If so, you are not alone. Even the Apostle Paul who wrote many of the books in the New Testament said in essence: “the thing I want to do, I don’t do, and the thing I don’t want to do, I do”. You may be a pastor, deacon or elder in your church. You may be reading your bible every day, fasting and praying, and crying out to Jesus for help. But you still have those areas where you are not walking in obedience to The Lord. In any area that we are not obedient to Jesus we are in rebellion. Rebellion in that area means that we have established another king or god whose voice we value more than Christ’s. We can say that’s not true all we want, but the fact that we are disobedient proves otherwise. And as blessed as we may think that we are, we must understand that we can never walk in the fullness of the promises of God until we dethrone our little gods and walk in obedience to Jesus Christ. It is these little gods, these areas of spiritual weakness that are keeping the great promises of God from manifesting themselves in our lives.

We can see this played out in the Holy Scriptures as the emancipated nation of Israel comes to the precipice of their promise, the land flowing with milk and honey, that God had promised Abraham and his descendants.  The reason that this generation  was not able to take hold of what God had clearly given them was simply they allowed the little god of fear to take the place of the God that brought them out of darkness and who had given them this land based upon His promise – His word.  You can see evidence of this in Numbers 13 as the spies give their report.  In verse 31 ten of the twelve spies say that they “can’t attack those people; they are stronger than we are.”  We can go on to read in chapter 14 that they were afraid that their wives and children would be taken as plunder.  And so we see that the “little god of fear” was more important to them than the God of all creation and as a result they were not able to manifest the promise of God for their lives.  However, if we look at the next generation of God’s people in Joshua chapter 3, they are ready to take hold of what it is that God has promised them.  In Joshua 3:5, Joshua says to the people as they are “preparing” to enter the promised land “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow The Lord will do amazing things among you.”  Consecrate means to set yourself apart for The Lord.  And they were to do that by getting rid of all of their other gods – their “little gods”.   I declare to you today – “Get rid of your little gods and watch Jesus Christ do amazing things among you.”

So how do we dethrone these demons, these little gods and establish Christ as King in every area of our lives? We do so by literally identifying by name the evil spirit that is attacking us and telling it four things. Here are the four steps to dethroning the little gods in your life and walking in the fullness of God’s promises.

  1. I have given my heart to Jesus
  2. I live for Jesus now
  3. I’ve been delivered from you
  4. I don’t love you more than I love Jesus

If you will, in the spirit, look that dark thing in the eye and call it by name, and say out loud these four things every time you feel that spirit attack you and mean it, I promise you that you will see a significant difference in your spiritual walk with The Lord Jesus Christ. This information is a game changer, spiritually. As you use it and see the fruit of it in your life, share it with anyone that you love that needs a breakthrough in their life. When you use this it won’t take long for you to see positive results.
