WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
THERE IS SOMETHING THE ENEMY HAS BEEN USING TO CONTROL YOUR LIFE!
This may be one of the most crucial articles you have ever read. The Lord told me, “Its time to break negative patterns; I will help you identify them BUT you must break them!”
“Certain situations of our lives are not the devil, curses or demons they are simply “patterns” of behavior which supports and enhances the activity of the devil. The devil may not be the cause of your laziness, bad spending habits, perpetual failure and disappointment in your work or marriage your poor patterns of behavior might just be, and since it is enhancing his grips over your life he capitalizes on it to enslave you”. ________________________________________________
The Lord whispered the word “Negative patterns” into my EARS and as I meditated on it, I began to see how the devil has been oppressing God’s children. The greatest victory is not deliverance from Egypt rather it is deliverance from the negative patterns Egypt has formed in us.” Moses can get you out of Egypt but You must get Egypt out of yourself. And the process of getting Egypt out of you is God’s ultimate victory. The greatest evil is not being in slavery in Egypt, but the evil Egypt does to our soul. You can break free from Egypt in one day, but it takes a life time to break free from the negative patterns Egypt has formed in you. I have been asking myself why is it that many Christian still live defeated lives despite the prayer, fasting and deliverance routine. Some of you reading this article have had demons cast out of you yet your life is still no better. Its 10 years after the demon left yet your life is worse off. What nobody told you is that there are negative patterns in your life that is causing your life to go in the direction it is going. Negative patterns keep us bound to the past affliction we have been delivered from. When God delivers us from the curses, yokes, and oppressions we have been held by and we continue living with the same pattern that led to the poverty our lives will look as if the demons are still present in our lives. Negative pattern brings poverty and empowers the enemy of our soul. Patterns are mode, methods, models and outline of life that produce an end result. Patterns produce the desired result in our lives. Every pattern we follow consistently we produces the result consistent with it. Some people have the pattern of carelessness, procrastination, never keeping a relationship, going late to work, to church or a job interview, sleeping too much, laziness, talking too much, spending too much and so on. These pattern of behavior produces poverty and powerlessness even though God may have given you the power and ability to live a greater level of life. The pattern of life you have created will determined the level of life you will experience.
ITS TIME TO SET UP A NEW PATTERN
The reason why your life seem bound to the past curses Christ has delivered you from is because you are still adopting the same pattern of behavior that brought the curses. The Bible says that God has delivered you from the dominion of darkness and has translated us into the kingdom of his Son.
NEW PATTERN EQUALS NEW EXPERIENCES
To enjoy new experience we must formulate new pattern of behavior that aids the Holy Ghost to function effectively in you. Some pattern are hindering and limiting. It is hard to make a man who has built a negative pattern see the help you have made available to him. Even though all that is required to change your life has been given to you negative patterns hide them from you. Have you ever tried being nice to a pig? You got for it good clothe and tie and your polish it to look beautiful but in the next minutes its in the mud. You thought to yourself what? Yes! The pig’s nature has an inbuilt pattern that decide its actions. Redemption changed our sin nature and has an inbuilt pattern that the new man is to live by. Unfortunately, after redemption most of us live the pattern of our old nature. When you are used to the pattern of uncleanness, or laziness no matter what is given to you to help you gets clean or hardworking it will not change you until you come to the realization that your behavior has formed “a pattern” in you that needs to be broken.
IT TAKES REALIZATION TO BREAK NEGATIVE PATTERNS
Negative patterns blinds us to the careless way we have been living until we come to a realization. The prodigal son almost lost himself until he came to his sense and the negative pattern driving his life in a downward spiral condition was broken. Certain situations of our lives are not the devil, curses or demons they are simply “patterns” of behavior which supports and enhances the activity of the devil. The devil may not be the cause of your laziness, bad spending habits, perpetual failure and disappointment in your work or marriage your poor patterns of behavior might just be, and since it is enhancing his grips over your life he capitalizes on it to enslave you. The prodigal son did not blame the devil or a curse he simply came to his sense. Its time to ask ourselves bitter question like, “why is my life revolving in the same direction?” Why are mine still broke and confused at 30? Why are mine in the 10th relationship?” Is it the devil? Is it a curse? Or is it just me?” Only after asking these questions can you come to your sense and be free. The devil keeps us captive by preventing us to see the negative patterns destroying our lives and making us blame others for our misfortunes. We need to pray and ask the Lord to reveal any negative patterns hidden by Satan and is being used to limit me.
TOTAL FREEDOM EQUALS ADOPTING POSITIVE PATTERNS
It will help us further if we can ask the Holy Spirit and those closest to us to spot the negative patterns they observe in us. The Holy Spirit will show us certain negative patters and provide us with the ability to stop them. To break subtle negative patterns that have hindered us we must be prepared to embrace the responsibility to embrace better and higher pattern of behaviors. We might be surprise that as we ask these question we might be told, “we worry too much”,” talk too much”, “you are too lazy and hard to get along with.” Then that is an indication its time to replace them with new and positive pattern.
