Ephesians 6:11 – “Put on the full armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.”

The devil is a wily foe! And there is not enough physical or mental strength to contend with his cunning tricks. It takes the spiritual strength of one grounded in the Living Word to identify his tricks for what they are. Irrespective of the method he uses, the devil’s aim is clear – to break your communion with God and cut off your dependence upon Him. One of his most common traps – which most of us encounter on an almost daily basis – is offence. The major challenge is that when we get offended, we hardly realise how trapped we are! 

But remember – no one knows you better than you know yourself. If you discover the peace of heart and internal joy Christ promised His followers has started seeping out of your daily life and decisions, take time to examine yourself. Are you harbouring offence in your heart? Is your spirit free? People of God, stop making it easy for the devil! Be encouraged by this powerful quotable quote from Prophet TB Joshua – “You will receive in a moment what you have been seeking for years when you let go of offence!”

PRAYER: My heart is the prayer room. LORD, speak to my heart; let me hear Your voice! Help me to let go of offence that I may be sensitive to the leading of Your Spirit – in the mighty name of Jesus Christ!
