PRAYERS TO OVERCOME DEADLY ENEMY WITHIN
Bible Reading: Psalms 55:12-14
“If an enemy were insulting me, I could endure it; if a foe were rising against me, I could hide.
But it is you, a man like myself, my companion, my close friend,
with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship at the house of God, as we walked about among the worshipers.” Psalms 55:12-14
Prayers to overcome the deadly enemy within are the prayers needed by every child of God at any particular time. The Bible verbally ask, “can two walks together unless they agree?” (Amos 3:3). In my response to this question, two can walk together in this present generation without agreement. That’s, two are walking and working together, smiling with one another, even eating together, without agreeing together [without being one in spirit and mind]. They are relating together but their thoughts are not the same.
On many occasions, those who are against you are the closest, appearing friendly to you. The people that against you, against your vision, against your success or promotion are the people that closest to you. I could remember the closest friend who is the antagonist to a sister. People are surprised when the secret expose that is the one against the success of her friend. You will be surprised if God opens your eyes to see the person behind your problem. The people you cannot imagine are the ones against you.
No wonder the Bible make clear that “A man’s enemies are the men of his own household” Micah 7:6b, Matthew 10:36.
The deadly enemies within are your closest associate, and are the one opens the door for the outside enemies. You will agree with me that many people could not overcome their challenges because the backup problem is their family – sons, father, mother, sister, husband or wife. Many great men and women who would not have been captured or subdued by demonic men and women have easily been captured with the help of these enemies within. They easily hand them over to the outside enemies.
Remember, Judas Iscariot, is the accountant of Jesus Christ ministry and is the one who betrayed Him, and handover Jesus to the enemies. Matthew 26:49. Many have fallen through the kissing and deception of their friends or families. You too can have such an experience!
The deadly enemies within are formidable agents that easily caught their victims because they know more information about them. in most cases, they know their weakness, secret, even their password. This makes it easy and successful for them to get access to the person.
Beloved, the deadly enemies within that handover you to outside enemies know much about you even your best food, best cloth and the best thing you desire. The story of Samson and Delilah clearly illustrates the possibility and reality of betrayals by those thought to have loved the betrayed.
“When Delilah saw that he had told her everything, she sent word to the rulers of the Philistine. Come back he has told me everything. So the ruler of the Philistines returned with the silver in their hands. Having put him to sleep on her lap, she called a man to shave off the seven braids of his hair, and so began to subdue him. And his strength left him” Judges 16:17-19.
Those that you allow knowing information about you can easily become your enemies and destroy your life. It is easier for those who have deep information to either lift you up or bring you down. Be wise! And never allow people to have access to your life’s “computer’s password.” Allowing people to know sensitive information about you is an open door to destruction.
There is a prophet in the Bible who allow another prophet to know sensitive information about him and his mission. This young prophet ends his life untimely because of his ignorant and inability to keep his delicate information.
“And he said unto his sons, Saddle me the ass. So they saddled him the ass: and he rode thereon,
And went after the man of God, and found him sitting under an oak: and he said unto him, Art thou the man of God that camest from Judah? And he said I am.
Then he said unto him, Come home with me, and eat bread.
And he said, I may not return with thee, nor go in with thee: neither will I eat bread nor drink water with thee in this place:
For it was said to me by the word of the LORD, Thou shalt eat no bread nor drink water there, nor turn again to go by the way that thou camest.
He said unto him, I am a prophet also as thou art; and an angel spake unto me by the word of the LORD, saying, Bring him back with thee into thine house, that he may eat bread and drink water. But he lied unto him.
So he went back with him, and did eat bread in his house, and drank water.
And it came to pass, as they sat at the table, that the word of the LORD came unto the prophet that brought him back:
And he cried unto the man of God that came from Judah, saying, Thus saith the LORD, Forasmuch as thou hast disobeyed the mouth of the LORD, and hast not kept the commandment which the LORD thy God commanded thee,
But camest back, and hast eaten bread and drunk water in the place, of the which the LORD did say to thee, Eat no bread, and drink no water; thy carcase shall not come unto the sepulchre of thy fathers.
And it came to pass, after he had eaten bread, and after he had drunk, that he saddled for him the ass, to wit, for the prophet whom he had brought back.
And when he was gone, a lion met him by the way, and slew him: and his carcase was cast in the way, and the ass stood by it, the lion also stood by the carcase.” 1 Kings 13:13-24
Beloved, don’t trust anybody including your spouse, he/she is a human being and he/she can act like a human being anytime. Don’t forget, the Holy Bible warn us not to trust anyone.
“Don’t trust anyone— not your best friend or even your wife! 6 For the son despises his father. The daughter defies her mother. The daughter-in-law defies her mother-in-law. Your enemies are right in your own household!” Micah 7:5-6 NLT
“Let everyone beware of his neighbour, and put no trust in any brother, for every brother is a deceiver, and every neighbour goes about as a slanderer.” Jeremiah 9:4 (ESV)
“Everyone must be on guard against their friends, and no one can trust their relatives; for all relatives are as deceitful as Jacob, and everyone slanders their friends.” Jeremiah 9:4 (GNT)
It’s a great disaster to trust anyone. It is only God can be trusted with two eyes closed. Be strong in the Lord, pray well, live holy, and be watchful, for a thief doesn’t enter a city without an accomplice.
Finally, are you a true friend of Jesus? Don’t forget, Jesus knows you more than how you know yourself! If you’re pretending that you are a friend of Jesus, He will soon expose you. Horrible end awaits all those who pretend to be friends of Jesus but are His enemies.
