Overview

Discerning and Defeating the Ahab Spirit: The Key to Breaking Free from Jezebel by Steve Sampson

While many believers are familiar with the Jezebel spirit-the spirit of control and dominance-many are unfamiliar with her age-old partner: the Ahab spirit. In order for Jezebel to have control, she needs someone to control. As a result, the Ahab spirit robs believers of their rightful authority, causing them to:

avoid conflict at any cost

feel unworthy and inferior to those around them

live with fear, shame and guilt

You don't have to live this way. Passivity is a spiritual problem, not a personality trait, and you can be free from it! Once you learn to exercise the godly assertiveness that comes from being in Christ, you can throw off the spirit of passivity.

When you seek God's balance in your life, you will find the crippling discomfort of being under an Ahab spirit being replaced by joy. Then you can step into the significant purposes God has for you: increasing your influence, becoming a positive force for change and helping to expand His Kingdom.
