Psalm 60:12 Through God we will do valiantly, for it is He who shall tread down our enemies.
Without God, one will be a laughing stock or a toy in the hands of the
enemy. The psalmist says in Psalms 124:1-3, if not for God who had been
on our side the enemies would have swallowed us alive. As a matter of
fact unless God intervenes there is nothing anyone can do. There is
nothing any herbalist, doctor /surgeon, prophet, president or political
godfather can do to help us.
There are two categories of
enemies. The ones we aware of their existence and the ones we are
unaware of their existence. Dealing with the enemies we are aware of
their existence is not so difficult, simply take them to God in prayers
and that settles it. Dealing with the enemies we are unaware of their
existence is almost impossible. How can anyone fight an enemy he or she
does not know exist? When we talk of enemies we are unaware of their
existence in our lives, we are not talking of witches and wizards.
Witches and wizards are small, all you need is just the name of Jesus
and they will run. We are talking of enemies within. We are talking of
enemies present inside us. An example of such enemy is pride. Many
suffering from the spirit of pride do not believe they are proud. Some
will even get angry when you suggest it to them. How can such people man
fight the spirit of pride in their life? Proverbs 16:18 says pride goes
before destruction. Many suffering from anger problems do not know they
have the problems. By the time they know they are suffering from anger
problems it will have been too late, sometimes it is when they start
exhibiting the symptoms of hypertension and high blood pressure. Those
in the medical professions have advised that intense and unresolved
anger is linked to health conditions such as high blood pressure,
depression, anxiety and heart disease. So also is the fellow who
laziness is destroying his life. Proverbs 10:4 says lazy hands make a
man poor. To a lazy fellow he is just resting or chilling, unknown to
him he has been idle for hours whereas his colleagues are busy achieving
things. The one suffering from loose tongues do not know he or she has
that problems. The fellow would have divulged all their life secrets and
plans to vision killers without knowing it. Most people with acidic
tongue will tell you they only say things as they are or they are been
real but unknown to them that careless use of the tongue is dangerous.
According to James 3:6, as small as the tongue is, it is able to take a
man to hell.
How can we fight an enemy we are unaware of its
existence, it is by linking up with God who can see everything and has
the power to deliver us from these enemies. Hebrews 4; 13 says before
God nothing is hidden. We might be unaware of the existence of the
enemies in our life but God is aware of their existence. That was why He
was able to warn Cain of the presence of anger he was unaware of its
existence in his life in Genesis 4:5-6. Cain did not heed to the advice
and his anger brought a curse upon his life.
Father, every enemy within secretly destroying my life and my future
please bring it to my attention and destroy them today.
