I received an email reporting several attacks from a devouring spirit: jobs lost, wages cut, and car breakdowns.

WAYNE'S VISION: Prior to the email, Wayne saw a roaring lion and he was the size of a car. He was coming from a distance with his head held high, somewhat prancing and looking around. When he saw Wayne, he came to devour him and opened his mouth. But Wayne had a GARDEN HOE in his hand, and he put the hoe up under the lion's chin and closed it! I feel that this was a key revealed as to the right weapon for combating the devourer right now. Here are the few things He gave me.

1. The garden hoe is used to weed our gardens. The weeds are sins, offenses, unforgiveness, carnality, etc. Hoes also remove stones that are the stumbling blocks in our lives that cause reproach.

2. We can also use a hoe to draw a line, a furrow to plant seeds. Seeds are like good works and good Words.

3. A hoe can also draw a fire line. That can be a parable to speaking to the demonic fire and saying, "Thus far and no farther!"



The Lord speaks to me in parabolic language and He knows I love that stuff. (smile) When I was asking Him why the garden hoe, He brought back a funny memory. I know 2 pastors, who after being touched by renewal, would say "Ho!" when His Spirit came upon them. It was quickened to them both that the following scripture was somehow connected to this experience as a parable. It is interesting to me that this scripture is about those who have no money, as though they have been bitten by the devourer.

Isa 55:1-3 NKJV

"Ho! Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; And you who have no money,

Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Why do you spend money for what is not bread, and your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, and let your soul delight itself in abundance. Incline your ear, and come to Me. Hear, and your soul shall live; And I will make an everlasting covenant with you - The sure mercies of David.


REVELATION: The term, "Catch the little foxes," has been running around in my mind lately. I don't know if you can catch a fox with a garden hoe! But foxes are devourers too.




{Words to Ponder are summaries of His quickened Words of prophetic revelation, punched with the word of wisdom and written under inspiration.}


Of course the devourer is at work when you see sudden massive losses in physical, mechanical and spiritual things breaking down in your life; but seldom do they come with sudden alarm unless there is blatant sin and major breakdowns. It is rather through the small subtle inroads into your life which nibble away at your hedge, increments at a time. So catch the little foxes that steal your self discipline and compromise your conscience. Do not harden your sensitivity to the subtle call of My voice in your heart. You may not hear Words, but you know what is right and safe, pure and holy in regards to keeping your hedge safe. Catch the foxes before your harvest is stolen.

Song 2:14-3:1 NLT

"My dove is hiding behind some rocks, behind an outcrop on the cliff. Let me see you; let me hear your voice. For your voice is pleasant, and you are lovely." "Quick! Catch all the little foxes before they ruin the vineyard of your love, for the grapevines are all in blossom." "My lover is mine, and I am his. He feeds among the lilies! Before the dawn comes and the shadows flee away, come back to me, my love. Run like a gazelle or a young stag on the rugged mountains."
