Ed Silvoso, founder of Harvest Evangelism, tells the story of a pastor, who one day, was walking along the seashore. As he was trying to enjoy the scenery, a swarm of flies began bothering him.
“There is a spiritual truth here,” the Lord said. “Understand the life cycle of the fly and you will begin to understand how to get rid of negative spiritual issues in your life.” Upon investigation, the pastor found that the life cycle of the adult fly is 21 days in the summer. The larva stage of the fly is a few days while the pupa stage is three to seven days. The truth then became clear. If you can get rid of a fly and its offspring, then the cycle of the fly’s generation is broken and you will be rid of all flies.
The lord then told the pastor to proclaim truth for forty days. He then specifically told the pastor to take an area of his life in which he wanted freedom. Find forty key biblical verses in that area and proclaim them as truth for forty days.
Here are verses to help that help proclaim truth over the fly of curses.
