PRAYERS AGAINST THE SPIRIT OF DEVOURER
BIBLE READING: MALACHI 3:8-12
“8 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.
9 Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.
10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.
12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.”
According to a dictionary, “The devourer” simply means “the one who devours” (or destroys). It refers to anyone or anything known for devouring. In this passage, it refers to whomever or whatever “devoured” or “ate up” or “destroyed” the “fruits” and “vines”.
Biblically, the “devourer” mentioned in Malachi 3:11 was probably sent by God to devour or destroy the work, business, finances or health of anyone that disobey the commandment of paying tithes. God can also rebuke/stop this “devourer”, whoever or whatever God may have decided that the “devourer” should be.
In his view, David D. Wiah II affirmed that “This devourer is an active force that has the capacity and ability to undermine the effort, labour, and overturn or lessen productivity to nothing. It presents an atmosphere of sorrow, pains, and grieving which results in a decision total turnaround from your earlier path. This is a major weapon used by the devil to keep the spiritual rhythm active. His agenda is based on ideological manipulation of people’s minds towards Devine commands and covenants which protects them against such devourers.”
On this note, the devourer can be sickness, accident, loss of good things, damaging of properties, etc. all these can happen to a man as a means of devourer or destruction. You can safeguard your business, finances, marriage or ministry from devourer when you obey the instructions of God on tithes and offering as well as obeying His voice and commandment – Deuteronomy 28:1-14, Malachi 3:8-12.
Remember, our faithful Father promised us to rebuke or stop devourers. The rebuke of the devourer means putting an end to sickness, failure, insects, pests, locusts, plaques, or even the weather and anything else that may cause serious harm to the crops, business, work and marriage.
On many occasions, our Lord Jesus Christ rebuked the wind and the fever.
“And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.” [Mark 4:39].
“And he stood over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her, and immediately she rose and began to serve them.” Luke 4:39
The only way to overcoming devourers against your life, business, finances, ministry, marriage, etc. is to surrender yourself unto Jesus Christ, believe Him and allow Him to be the Lord and Saviour of your soul and entire life. John 3:16-18, Matthew 11:28-29, Acts 3:19, 39.
