John 8:31-32 (NET) Then Jesus said to those Judeans who had believed him, “If you continue to follow my teaching, you are really my disciples and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Bolaji observed that in his family, every man was a chronic womanizer. His father left his mother for another woman because of this. His grandfather did the same, but only returned to his wife when he became very sick and his lovers deserted him. His father tried to return to his mother when he too became very sick, but his mother wouldn’t accept him back.

Even though Bolaji was born again and happily married, he observed that a feeling of discontentment towards his wife and a strong lust for other women started growing within his heart. It didn’t take him long to realize that the same demon that led his grandfather and father astray was now on his case. He knew this was a family curse when he started having symptoms of the same disease that killed his father and grandfather. He had prayed and fasted for many days, but as soon as his fasting ended, the lust came back.

The Lord revealed to him that he had to change his belief concerning certain things if he wanted to walk in spiritual liberty. His life and worldview were not shaped by the word of God because he wasn’t devoted to the ministry of the word enough. He primarily saw himself through the lens of the culture he was born into, not through the lens of God’s kingdom culture. He would say things like: “I was a Yoruba man before I became a Christian”. His earthly culture and tradition always took preeminence over God’s word and kingdom values when there was a contradiction.

Every believer in Christ has a heritage of blessings rather than curses (see Ephesians 1:3), and should walk in total freedom. But this freedom is appropriated through our knowledge of the truth. It was to those who believed in Him that Jesus said ‘you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free’ (see John 8:31-32).

Christ sets us free through our knowledge of the truth revealed by the word of God we know and believe. For example, those who still believe they are under ancestral curses, rather than believing God’s truth concerning them, never truly experience freedom.

Go into today changing what you believe according to the truth of God’s word concerning you.
