Text: Numbers 22:2-7
Memory verse:
”Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, But establish the just; For the righteous God tests the hearts and minds.“
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭7‬:‭9‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Spiritual programming is designing and arranging a working instruction to play out in someone’s life, now or in the future; causing things to work in a certain way or to go in a particular direction. It is like a schedule, timetable, or calendar to execute one’s life. It is designed to work with a command that the victim unconsciously obeys and defends.
God has programmed our lives before we were born. His plans for us are good and to give us a beautiful future. “Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day.” (Psa 139:16 MSG).
However, we have an adversary who is always opposed to God’s plans for our lives and destiny. He is always trying to copy God’s methods, but his own programming is for death, destruction, and disaster. His program is to steal, kill, and destroy beautiful destinies. According to our text, Balak hired Balaam to program failure, defeat, weakness, and loss into the people of Israel. These would have been the manifestations of the curse if it had prevailed over them (Num 22:5-6).
Once something is programmed, it will follow the instructions and obey the commands of the programmer unless two things happen. Firstly, if there is an opening in the program that allows the program to be hacked and taken over (Ecc10:8). The curses of Balaam couldn’t prosper on Israel until they broke the hedge through sin (Rev 2:14). Secondly, if a superior programming is introduced and which overrides the former programming (Heb 10:9). You can override and deprogram evil programming with the program of the everlasting covenant in the blood of Jesus.
Programming is so important that even when the programmer is no longer available or dead, the program will still continue working unless something is done.
Friends, to terminate that evil programming and destroy every negative thing programmed into your destiny, you must not pray casually but violently.

Prayer points
1. I terminate and deprogram every evil programming working against me in Jesus’ name.
2. Let every calendar, timetable, or schedule set up against me be cleared now, in Jesus’ name.

Today’s declarations
1. I won’t sleep spiritually lest evil hackers gain entrance or stop God’s program for my life.
2. I override evil programming for my life and destiny through the program of the everlasting covenant.
