16LHCD3-2 - Geri McGhee - THE GRASSHOPPER SPIRIT - Donation $4.00 - A ‘Grasshopper Spirit’ is someone who does not know who they are in Christ. They live in fear and confess the facts of what they see, but instead they need to state the truth of what God’s Word says. Numbers 13:25 tells about a troubling report of giants in the land of milk and honey. “We saw ourselves as grasshoppers in their sight.” Joshua and Caleb responded, “But the Lord is with us…fear them not! Follow the Lord fully so you and your children will possess the land.” We must live an overcoming, sanctified life. The giants in our land are anger, addictions, perversions, bitterness, unforgiveness, fear, infirmities…all those things we have to overcome so we can possess our land. A person with a Grasshopper Spirit is in constant turmoil and never enters God’s rest. They see themselves as worthless and little in life’s difficult situations. They want to quit and run every time there is a problem. The Grasshopper Spirit can come in through fear of man if you grow up with angry, raging parents. Jesus says, “Come unto Me all ye who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.” It is a picture of yielding to the leading and control of the Holy Spirit. Deliverance prayers follow this teaching.
