“The Lies We Believe!”
Part 2 – Renouncing Agreements
Ephesians 6 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist,
An agreement happens when we “agree” with an untruth in our inner being. The enemy often tempts us to enter into agreements in times of vulnerability and weakness and then continues to use them to rob us of joy, hope and life. They can be deep and long term or mundane even appearing normal.
John 8 31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free……… He (the devil) was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
John 10 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
1 Peter 5 8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith!
Ask – Name – Renounce – Reclaim
Ask for help from Jesus and others!
Name the agreement the best you can!
You will know them by their fruit.
Notice “always” and “never” declarations.
Notice agreements in the categories of “You”, “Others” and “God”!
Renounce the agreement in Jesus name!
Repent and receive forgiveness for sins associated with the agreement!
Reclaim Truth in this area of life! Speak scriptural truth over one’s self, with thanksgiving.
Reclaim what has been lost and invite Jesus to heal.
SOLITUDE, SCRIPTURE, AND PRAYER
“Why is it that we have ‘SLOW’ when God appears to delight in it? Lord, help me take steps today to slow down and live more attentively to the voice of Jesus. “
Find a quiet place and 15 minutes.
Solitude – Spend TWO minutes quietly alone. Take some deep breaths… Just be… … …Ask, “Holy Spirit, speak to me through Your Word!”
Scripture – Read slowly, out loud if possible, listen, reread, dwell, notice words & phrases you are drawn to & return there! (Sermon notes may help with understanding, but don’t stop there.)
Keep asking, “Jesus, what are You saying? Why this word this day?
What are You asking me to believe about You and about me?
How do I join You today on Your mission and in my transformation?”
Prayer – Let your conversation with God flow from what He is saying then talk about what you notice is on your heart and also on your list.
Finish – Spend TWO minutes again with God
