Overcoming Backwardness In Life. Sally has been experiencing setback after setbacks. It just seems everything she did never prospered! Even though she is still single, you can see lines of frustration on her forehead. She looks lost on what to do. She is losing count of dates and broken engagements. It would all look promising, only for her joy to be shattered.

The Johnsons who are already married are not spared either. They seem to be revolving around a circle. Like the proverbial rocking chair, they are involved in many businesses and activities, but no progress at the end of the day!

Overcoming Backwardness In Life

You see there is such a thing called backwardness. There is a wicked spirit whose assignment is to bring backwardness so that the saints of God can be wearied and assume a position that nothing is really working.

Once on this lane, it becomes impossible to stay in faith as every effort to believe God is frustrated! 

See the reality ion backwardness in the scriptures:

Jer 7:24 (KJV) But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.

It is actually possible for a person to go backward and not forward. According to the verse above, the chief cause of this is a refusal to listen to God, but rather choosing to follow one’s own counsel and imagination! 

Take a look at other translations:

Jer 7:24 (MSG) “‘But do you think they listened? Not a word of it. They did just what they wanted to do, indulged any and every evil whim and got worse day by day.

The Amplified Version is even more intense:

Jer 7:24 (AMPC) But they would not listen to and obey Me or bend their ear [to Me], but followed the counsels and the stubborn promptings of their own evil hearts and minds, and they turned their backs and went in reverse instead of forward.

I pray for you this morning, you will not go in reverse in Jesus’ name!

Take these prayer points: Overcoming Backwardness In Life

  1. Every satanic investment in my life is wasted, in the name of Jesus.
  2. Every power that swallows divine opportunities, dies, in the name of Jesus.
  3. I enter into my prophetic destiny, in the name of Jesus.

Have a blessed day in Jesus’ name!
