February 19:2019

Then Abram went up from Egypt, he and his wife and all that he had, and Lot with him, to the South. Abram was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold. And he went on his journey from the South as far as Bethel, to the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Ai, to the place of the altar which he had made there at first. And there Abram called on the name of the LORD. Lot also, who went with Abram, had flocks and herds and tents. Now the land was not able to support them, that they might dwell together, for their possessions were so great that they could not dwell together. And there was strife between the herdsmen of Abram’s livestock and the herdsmen of Lot’s livestock. The Canaanites and the Perizzites then dwelt in the land. So Abram said to Lot, “Please let there be no strife between you and me, and between my herdsmen and your herdsmen; for we are brethren. Is not the whole land before you? Please separate from me. If you take the left, then I will go to the right; or, if you go to the right, then I will go to the left.
Genesis 13:1-9 (NKJV)


To maximise the operation of the blessing in your life, you must separate from things, situations or environments that hinder the flow of the Holy Spirit. If you do not separate, you will not be free to keep advancing. Certain relationships can slow down your advancement. Separate from those things holding you back; drop them. Separate from strife situations – as these will weaken you.

A visit to the dentist may require a root canal to keep the teeth healthy; separate the infected roots and damaged nerves from within the tooth. Such a procedure, though uncomfortable to say the least, is essential for sustained and long term health. Like a tooth requiring a root canal, the infection creeps up unsuspectingly, until the point when you can no longer deny that there is a problem!

Often, we know what the problematic relations and situations are, but we may be too weak or lackadaisical to tackle them. Sometimes, we may think that they do not really matter or may not amount to anything.

To maximise the operation of the Holy Spirit in our lives, we need to separate ourselves and yield to the Holy Spirit.

Beloved, flee from strife at all times. Separate yourself from situations that will hinder the operation of the blessing in your life. 

Additional Scripture Reference(s): Proverbs 20:3

Prayer & Confession of Faith

With the help of the Holy Spirit, I separate myself from situations and relations that have separated me from God. Cleanse me, Lord, from sins that have brought about some distance between us. In Jesus name, Amen!
