Promise of the Day: Hebrews 9:14

in Promise of the Day


Today’s promise is Hebrews 9:14:

“…how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”

Power in the Blood

If we are to be effective members of the Kingdom, we cannot be bogged down with guilt and regret. Christ’s blood cleanses us, freeing us from the baggage of the past, that we might walk in the power of the Living Christ. But there are people all around us who lend themselves to unclean spirits for the purpose of reminding us of past mistakes. These spirits don’t want us to be effective for Christ. It’s so important to rebuke these spirits immediately! Not the person, but the spirit. Even when the spirits are using someone you love and trust for their mouthpiece. Often, people aren’t even aware they are being used. Do not listen to them! Do not even let them complete a sentence! Walk in the power of the Holy Spirit and your new identity in Christ and rebuke them! It is better to risk offending someone in the wrong than risk offending the Holy Spirit, who is never wrong.

Heavenly Father, grant me the Spirit of Discernment. Not only to know the voice of the enemy and stop him in his tracks, but to know the difference between the enemy and the people he uses, and to know when I am at risk of being the enemy’s mouthpiece. Help me remember to treat all people with love and respect, that nothing may be said against You. In Jesus’ name, Amen!

Have a victorious day in the Lord!
