Bind the devil

 I wrote a short story yesterday. I wrote the story and it was beautiful. As I was about to save it, the curse from midnight rant decided to go for a walk. My phone when off, I was so angry. The story disappeared, the back up file in my brain got corrupt and some tears were shed.
    So I have decided to go to vigil and "bind' the devil. I know as a Christian you must have attended "night vigil" at one point in your life. Ok, where am I going with this? I have gone to many night vigils where the pastors call out prayer point for the congregation to use in their prayers. I found that many Nigerians when they pray - always bind rather than loose.
Eg
“ I bind the generational curses in sister lagbaja's family” or “ I bind all the enemies that are trying to destroy brother tamedu's household”

Definition of bind -to fasten or secure with a band or bond. Or to fasten around.

Definition of Loose -free or released from fastening or attachment

Why do we now bind curses rather than loose? I have had to suppress numerous urges to stop my prayer and tell the "iya aburo" praying beside me “Aunty, you do not bind but loose” or maybe you can cast. But I am always afraid that they may see me as an "I too know" or rather label me as an enemy of progress or Bind me along with whatever they are binding.
   So dahlings, how do you pray? Have a nice week ahead, this week would be a tidbit exhausting for me so I might be MIA at a point.

  3. Lol when you bind, you render powerless. When you loose such person or demon or curse walks free. So you bind the demon or curse and you loose the oppressed. Get it? That's how I see it sha. Sorry about your short story. Sake thing has happened to me. Took me almost three weeks to rewrite.

  4. Proverbs 3 vs. 3 states “Let not mercy and truth forsake thee:bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: 4 So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man”

  5. Lol. Hi Pheezy, it's my first time on your blog o *smiles* Lovely atmosphere. .

    On the issue; I agree with Mo. Mark 3:27 says, “No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first BIND the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.” To bind your enemies (addictions, distractions, pride, etc) renders them powerless. You bind these strong men by the Word of God.

    1. And we can't bind the devil. But we can bind the demons, his activities and his agents.
