Month Theme: Spiritual Warfare and the Jubilee
Topic: Human Beings You Must Overcome
Scripture Reading: Genesis 32:10-28
And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.
Jacob went through the laborious process of sending his family across the stream meticulously because of the impending visitation of God. He was wary of the journey because of the fear of meeting Esau (Genesis 32:1-8). We have all had times when men have tried to intimidate us and kill our dreams. They torment us ad nauseam with mocking and flog us with caustic insinuations. We often come across things which are bigger than us.
The Bible shows clearly that human beings constitute a formidable resistance in the way of anybody who seeks to attain great heights in life. You must either obtain favour with them or else you must subdue them. There are times you literally have to fight everybody to survive. Know your environment and act accordingly (Psalm 56:11; 124:1-3).
Some people hinder us by using powers of the occult. They invoke demonic spirits against us to stop from making impact. Elymas the Sorcerer tried to impede Paul but Paul had the anointing to counteract the opposition (Acts 13:6-11). Paul exercised his spiritual authority against the impertinence of Elymas the Sorcerer. He spoke out against him and he became blind when the glory of God struck him. Don’t allow people to torment you with spiritual forces of darkness. Confront demonic activities with the anointing on your life.
Prayer: Pray and abort the evil machinations and imaginations of men against you and your family.
