Defeating the Sayer
“And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which thou art shall see the work of the LORD: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with thee. Observe thou that which I command thee this day: behold, I drive out before thee the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite. Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest it be for a snare in the midst of thee: But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves: For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God: Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods, and one call thee, and thou eat of his sacrifice; And thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after their gods.” Exodus 34:10-16
The Amorite spirit is known as the “sayer.” It is a vocal and domineering spirit that speaks with a false voice. It is quick to tell us what we are not according to the standards of men. It will recount our shortcomings and will speak of the bleakness of our situations. It will not lift up truth or an accurate presentation of things according to a spiritual or divine point of view.
The aim of the Amorite spirit is to stir up discord and division in our mind as it beats us down in spirit. It is to cause us to view things without hope and to assess it according to a lower and faulty standard. What is sinister about this spirit is that it is an abusive spirit it disguises itself as one that is trying to make us a better version of ourselves. It is has no mercy or compassion on those it victimizes. Its assault is continual for it will attack everything, presenting to our minds a laundry list of areas where we have fallen short thus provoking us to work harder and to do better in our natural strength in order to silence its criticism of us as it promotes a self-reliant spirit within us.
When the Amorite Spirit is left unchallenged, it will have us twirling in the wind. Feeling insecure, lost without hope, and without any attachment to God. It can provoke us to accuse one another and berate each other.
“Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.” Psalm 43:5
The Amorite spirit as a doorkeeper opens the way for a different reality than the one God has for his children for it opens the way for us to be led and persuaded by our emotions.

- Know your God intimately (Daniel 11:32). Refuse to question his goodness. Know that he is a good God always (Psalm 136:1).
- He works everything out for good if we are called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28).
- God is always true and right therefore, when things do not come to pass or the error or fault lies with another (Romans 3:4).
- Examine yourself and be established in the faith (2 Corinthians 13:5). As you are going through trials and tribulations do you, uphold the commands of God? Are your words consistent with a citizen of heaven? Are you emitting light throughout the test?
Your challenge should you decide to take it is to get to know God. Take time to establish roots that are grounded firmly in the truth of who God is. Identify and pluck up every lying weed that his infiltrated your garden.
