Deuterononmy 1:6-8,  The LORD our God spake unto us in Horeb, saying, Ye have dwelt long enough in this mount: Turn you, and take your journey, and go to the mount of the Amorites, and unto all [the places] nigh thereunto, in the plain, in the hills, and in the vale, and in the south, and by the sea side, to the land of the Canaanites, and unto Lebanon, unto the great river, the river Euphrates. Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them. name.”


Backwardness is a demonic spirit that has placed people in their formal place, school and village in their dreams. The spirit of backwardness cannot allow people to progress. It restricts the children of God from so many things in life. For example, dreaming about the village, formal house, former school is a sign of backwardness, retrogression and stagnation. A man who is expecting a contract job from a person, but by the time he finished dreaming about former areas where he has lived before, that contract would not come to pass.

Dream of backwardness exist in many people’s dream today. Joseph in the Bible had dreams of greatness. He made it known to members of his household and they tried to kill him. Eventually, they sold him out as a slave. They though Jospeh would not be able to achieve his destiny. They tried to place him in a place of failure, in an environment where dreams cannot be fulfilled. But despite all odds, he became the Prime Minister. His dream came to pass. What the enemy thought he could never achieve, the Lord promoted Jospeh more than double


When a person is expecting a major breakthrough, the dream of the village would swallow or stop that expected breakthrough. When you look at your life and see that this dream of backwardness is seriously affecting your life, marriage, finance, business, then you need to cry out to God for deliverance. If you are satisfied with your present state of condition, then you don’t need to take these prayers with us. But if you are not satisfy with the ways things are going in your life, then you need to cry for change of progress.
