Are you a Christian who considers that your life is wasting away because your age is the only change you are experiencing in life? Do you invest time and resources into ventures and record failure? Are you being denied opportunities that you qualify for and replaced with less qualified people? Have you done all without any progress? Are you frustrated?
There are spirits that cause men to labour hard and not eat the fruit of their labour. Such spirits are spirits of profitless labour. Such spirits manifest in the form of little or no yield for great labour. They cause men to work like an elephant and reap like an ant. If not defeated, the spirit of profitless labour can cause a man to give up on himself. The spirit of profitless labour is also called the spirit of toil or the time and life waster spirit,.
A biblical view of the Spirit of Profitless Labour in Isaiah 5:1-5
I will sing for the one I love a song about his vineyard: My loved one had a vineyard on a fertile hillside. 2 He dug it up and cleared it of stones and planted it with the choicest vines. He built a watchtower in it and cut out a winepress as well. Then he looked for a crop of good grapes, but it yielded only bad fruit. 3 “Now you dwellers in Jerusalem and people of Judah, judge between me and my vineyard. 4 What more could have been done for my vineyard than I have done for it? When I looked for good grapes, why did it yield only bad? 5 Now I will tell you what I am going to do to my vineyard: I will take away its hedge, and it will be destroyed; I will break down its wall, and it will be trampled
Manifestations of the spirit of profitless labour
The Spirit of profitless labour manifests in diverse ways. Some of them are:
The spirit of profitless labour turns fertile lands into barren land – This means while others are succeeding at a location or in a venture, when a man who is afflicted by the spirit of profitless labour gets there, the fertility of the land will cease or turn to barrenness specifically for him. This can cause such a person to get frustrated, because regardless of how good his efforts are, little or nothing will be his harvest.
The spirit of profitless labour wastes efforts – The spirit does not prevent men from investing their time, effort and resources, it only ensures they go to waste. People under the bondage of this spirit will sometimes notice that others who put in lesser effort or who are not as dedicated or qualified as they are making headway, while they are left wondering what else to do having done all.
The Spirit of profitless labour leads to abandonment of treasures – Episodes of repeated failure and loss can make the strongest heart become weary. The Spirit of profitless labour can cause a person to abandon what ought to be their place of greatness because of unpleasant experiences. A Christian must be discerning to identify the destructive patterns of the spirit of profitless labour and defeat it by the authority in the name of Jesus. The spirit can waste a glorious destiny if not curbed early. The Spirit of profitless labour calls for warfare. Make up your mind to pray in faith and God shall deliver you in Jesus name
