Spirit and Life Devotional is a daily publication by Pastor Chinaemerem Ibezim, senior pastor of Able Ministers Chapel, a church based in Calabar, Cross River State.
Numbers 22:6:“Come now therefore, I pray thee, curse me this people; for they are too mighty for me: peradventure I shall prevail, that we may smite them, and that I may drive them out of the land: for I wot that he whom thou blessest is blessed, and he whom thou cursest is cursed.”
The reason for the failure of many believers is their carnality: they are doing everything humanly possible to win, but they keep struggling, because they have not learned the secret of success.
The reason Jesus succeeded is because He first settled things spiritually. All the wonderful works that He did were a result of the spiritual transactions that first occurred. He spent hours in prayer every day prevailing over the forces of darkness, and that’s why they couldn’t withstand Him in the physical realm.
Balak knew that he couldn’t succeed against the Israelites in the natural, so he took the battle to the supernatural realm. You are blessed as a child of God, but you must learn to release the blessing first in the spiritual realm, through spiritual activities, before you will see a manifestation here.
