The theme for Open Heaven Daily Devotional November 22 2023 is Kill That Weakness 1.”
SCRIPTURE: “Neither give place to the devil”. Ephesians 4:27.
When you want to fight a champion in a boxing match, the first thing you want to know is if he has been wounded before.
If he has, you can hit him on that spot to get the upper hand in the match. When the devil wants to bring down a champion,
he looks for the greatest weakness in the fellow and keeps aiming at it until the champion falls.
This is why you must not allow any weakness in your life, because the devil will capitalize on it.
You must destroy the weakness before it destroys you. A hunter went hunting and killed a big leopard.
He also saw a baby leopard and decided to take it back to the village because it looked harmless.
The little leopard began to grow, playing with children in the village, and the hunter’s son was its best friend.
Years later, the leopard had the hunter’s son riding on its back towards the village stream.
The boy fell and bruised his leg on the ground. The leopard, wanting to help his friend, licked the blood on the boy’s leg.
The taste of the blood drove the leopard to eat the boy up. Beloved, if you don’t kill that little leopard in your life, it will kill you.
That little contamination – that little anger or lust would later kill you, if you don’t kill it now.
Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.
Song of Solomon 2:15 It doesn’t matter how many good virtues you have or how strong you are in the Spirit; if there is just one weakness, it can destroy you completely.
A little contamination destroys purity. Hebrews 12:1 says that you should lay aside that sin which easily besets you so that you can run the Christian race successfully.
This race is a marathon. In marathons, carrying the smallest weight can cause you to fail. Once the devil sees you carrying that weakness around,
he knows he now has a joker card to use in bringing you down later. Don’t give him that joker card, kill the weakness immediately.
