Renunciations and Affirmations for Lesson 22
No More Idols: Head to Heart Guide
Renounce any agreements with untruth; believe Jesus’ truth as your new way of life. (John 14:6)
Take your time with these renunciations. They may not all apply to you; on the other hand, you may simply be unaware of their operation—the enemy loves to work "under the radar" of our conscious awareness and resistance. Being intentional before God with these confessions and renunciations puts them "under the Blood" and enlists the Lord's help in cleansing you of them. It also undercuts any legal right the enemy may have been claiming to keep these patterns in place. If you sense any resistance, command the spirit (its name would match the specific renunciation) to leave "in the Name of Jesus!" Do not, however, expect that the enemy will no longer test you in these areas; just the opposite may occur for a season as the Lord works to establish you in resisting these patterns.
