The Bible declares that we have an adversary to our walk and to our purpose in the earth (1 Peter 5:8,9). Satan often exploits our weakness to distract us from our assignment or to stop our assignment. Everyone has weaknesses and it is the entry point for demonic spirits to manipulate, exploit, and control.
A weakness can stem from an illegitimate need (wrong desire) or a legitimate need (right desire) we seek to meet in an illegitimate way.
Wrong people or people we give a higher place of influence to than what they should have, breathe life into our weaknesses that God is attempting to kill. Our enemy will use our weakness to bond us with wrong people and to separate us from right people. He will seek to bond you inordinately (in excess or beyond rightful boundaries) to an unhealthy relationship that feeds a weakness in you like he did Samson.
A weakness can emerge at any time in our life, including our closing years. The late Dr. Lester Sumrall said, “What you fail to master in your early years, will master you in your latter years.” One of the most sobering verses in the Bible is 2 Samuel 1:21 where it tells us that King Saul at the end of his life died as one that had not been anointed. The Bible exhorts us to take drastic measures to remove all that is in our life that offends Matt. 5:29, 30. Don’t put up with what you should not tolerate and don’t tolerate what you should not put up with. Romans 6:15 says, “What then? Shall we sin, because we are not under the law but under grace? God forbid.” Let it not be, let it never be said, and by no means ever permit sin even once in a while or a little bit.
