Many of you have been facing unprecedented setbacks and delays in your life. It is almost as if, just when you’re about to cross the finish line with one exhausting situation, there is something or someone strategically positioned to cause you to not only meet that finish point but simultaneously cause you to start all over again.
For example, there is a delay with your pay, a delay with your promotion, a delay with your schooling (scholarships, grants, student loans etc.). A delay with answered prayers, delays in your marriage, delays in your finances, delays with plans coming together and the list goes on.
I want to speak to those who have spiritual ears, to listen carefully and put into action IMMEDIATELY what the Holy Spirit has to say to you IF YOU DESIRE RELIEF AND VICTORY! The Lord is saying to you that you must, without delay begin to pray SPECIFICALLY against the SPIRIT OF DELAY THAT HAS INTENTIONALLY ATTACHED ITSELF TO YOUR PROGRESS! You must launch an all out attack against this spirit that has been specifically commissioned by the Enemy to DELAY AND FRUSTRATE everyone that’s positioned for blessings, miracles, breakthroughs, turn around and change in their lives.
The evidence of this wicked spirit is that absolutely nothing seems to be coming together for you; it appears as if every time you put one step forward something or someone is taking or pulling you two steps backwards. The Lord is saying to you that the people, places and things that you’ve concluded as the source of your delays and setbacks are smoke screens and agents of this wicked spirit who’s determined to accomplish his assignment by operating behind the scenes.
The lord said to remove your focus on what has been physically misleading you (people, places and things) and place your attention on what’s not visible and that is this evil spirit of delay. You must look for anything that remotely resembles the behaviour or actions of delay in order to distinguish this conniving spirit. As a reminder, scripture says the following in regards to this matter: “While we look not at the things which are seen (people, places and things), but at the things which are not seen (spirits operating behind those people, places and things): for the things which are seen are temporal (distraction); but the things which are not seen are eternal” 2 Corinthians 4:18.
My friend hear what I am saying to you, John Doe is not delaying you, the place you’re at is not delaying you, that thing is not delaying you…… IT IS THE SPIRIT OF DELAY THAT IS USING THAT PERSON, PLACE OR THING as a point of contact SOLELY TO DELAY YOU FROM YOUR DIVINE APPOINTED BLESSINGS, BREAK-THOUGHS, MIRACLES AND WHATEVER IT IS THAT GOD HAS ASSIGNED FOR YOU BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD,
1:3-4. Many folks have entered their season of divine release but were unaware of this spirit of delay, which robbed them of all that their seasons had to offer. The enemy will not sit back and allow you to be blessed…. He will fight you tooth and nail; nevertheless the Lord has provided us with the name of this invisible spiritual entity that has been successful and unhindered throughout the years in robbing his people; simply because they were unaware of who he is and his purpose for showing up in their lives.
As a reminder, scripture did not say that the people of God were being destroyed because they’re fornicating, lying, stealing, cursing etc. Instead, the scripture specifically stated that the people of God were perishing or being destroyed because they LACKED KNOWLEDGE! Hosea 4:6. In other word, it was what they didn’t know that will continue to give power to their spiritual oppressors. That’s right my friend, it is in your not knowing the root of your setbacks and delays in your life that has provided a format of allowing you to go so far but never ever arriving at the next level. You must become aggressive and determine the same way this spirit of delay is aggressive and determine against you. Curse and bind the spirit of delay from over every area of your life NOW!
Heavenly father we come in agreement with your word according to Jeremiah 23:29 which says, “Is not my word like a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?. We speak this word with the authority you’ve given us and release your judgment fire against this spirit of delay, like you did in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah. Father, every plan, plot, scheme, distraction, manipulation, seen and unseen launched by this spirit we command its spiritual and physical counsel to fall to the ground in the mighty name of Jesus Christ! Father, we command this evil spirit by the power of your word and the blood of your son Jesus Christ to release and restore all that he has stolen from your people according to your word in Proverbs 6:30-31, which says, “Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry; But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house”.
WE COMMAND THIS THIEF “THE SPIRIT OF DELAY” TO RESTORE SEVEN-FOLD ALL THAT HE HAS STOLEN INCLUDING THE SUBSTANCE OF HIS HOUSE ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST!
“My people are being destroyed because they lack knowledge” Hosea 4:6 God has just provided you the necessary knowledge to avoid destruction!
