Break the Power of the Devourer

Too often people are held captive by the power of the devil. In Malachi 3:11, the prophet Malachi called him “the devourer.” God said He would rebuke this devourer for your sake. Though Malachi spoke for God about the results of faithfully tithing, the same principle works for many faithful acts of God’s people.

The key to breaking the power of that despicable devourer, the devil, is simpler than you think. Exercise a steady, consistent, heart-filled diet of daily worship. Be sure you worship verbally. I recommend you turn your words into songs. Paul and Silas did and they walked free of their chains. Acts 16:25-26 (NKJV) tells us that, “…at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God… immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed.”

Singing to the Lord attracts angels and you become part of something supernatural. It breaks off the work of the devil. Give it a try. Then tell the devil good bye. While you are at it, remind him of where he is going, even as you declare that you will not be joining him. I’m Dr. Bob. What would be an excellent song with which you can worship God in the good times, so it would readily come to mind in the difficult ones? Now, listen to additional Mentoring Minutes at
