Don’t Walk Away

Prolonged Negativity

4th October 2020

Scripture Reading: John 5: 1-11


“And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.” (John 5: 5)

The man that was mentioned in our Focal Scripture had been in the pool of Bethesda for thirty eight years. For thirty eight years, that man struggled to move away from the same challenge; for thirty eight years, that man suffered stagnation at the pool of Bethesda; for thirty eight years, the man saw others rise above their sickness, but his own sickness remained. His situation was protracted; it was a clear case of prolonged negativity.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: every case of prolonged negativity in your life ends now. I command every protracted challenge to fizzle out now; I command every satanic bondage in your life to perish by the fire of the Lord; I command every siege of the enemy on your life, family, career, business, ministry, etc to be broken; I command every stagnation in your life to end now; I command every prolonged challenge to end now.

That bondage in the life of that man at the pool of Bethesda was not of God, and it had to give way. Hear me as I hear the Lord: every bondage of the enemy in your life, I command it to be uprooted. Every satanic pattern that has kept you at the same spot year after year, I command it to be broken now. Every projection from the pit of hell that has kept you in a sorry state year after year, I command it to return to where it came from.

Jesus did not go to the cross so that you can remain stagnated and in bondage. Jesus set you free so that you can truly be free. Jesus set you free so that you can live an abundant life. Jesus set you free so that your life will be an expression of His goodness. Jesus set you free so that the enemy will not have a foothold on your life. If there be any satanic foothold in your life, I command the enemy to give way.

Refuse every prolonged negativity that has existed in your life. Pray against every long standing negativity in your life, and it will give way.


I shake off every yoke of prolonged negativity, in Jesus’ name!
