15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

Bible In One Year: Acts 24-26. Hymn: Sing Hymn 9 — My Faith Has Found Resting A Place
Man people today live under bondage as a result of their forefather’s sins. For example an uncontrollable anger or promiscuity may be noticed in a teenager and upon investigation; such is traced to the parents and grandparents. Exodus 34:7 says:
“…visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and upon the children’s children, unto the fourth generation.”
However, the moment God comes into such a life, things change dramatically. When God is in control of your life, it is evident through the tremendous peace that will calm your storms, but when the devil rules the life of an individual, there will be total confusion. 1 Corinthians 14:33 says God has nothing to do with confusion. When people engage in things that can destroy them, it means their heads are manipulated by the devil. If you find it difficult to submit to authority or comply with simple rules, examine yourself. The state of the head is revealed by the conduct of the body. No matter how refined an individual looks, if something is wrong with the head, it will show.
Prayer Point: Father, please completely destroy the power of ancestral curses in my life in Jesus’ Name.
Sing Hymn 9: My Faith Has Found Resting A Place
My faith has found a resting place,
Not in device or creed;
I trust the ever living One,
His wounds for me shall plead.
I need no other argument,
I need no other plea,
It is enough that Jesus died,
And that He died for me.
Enough for me that Jesus saves,
This ends my fear and doubt;
A sinful soul I come to Him,
He’ll never cast me out.
My heart is leaning on the Word,
The living Word of God,
Salvation by my Savior’s Name,
Salvation through His blood.
My great Physician heals the sick,
The lost He came to save;
For me His precious blood He shed,
For me His life He gave.
