Scripture; Matthew 10: 36. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.

Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! As we bring the month of January to a close,, I will like us to pray against household wickedness.

Our anchor scripture reveals who are this household wickedness:

Matthew 10: 36. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.

Observed Jesus said your foes meaning your enemy are the members of your family.

Why should you pray against household enemies?

1. Because of their activities will directly hinder the fulfilment of your dreams.
A classic example in this regards was Joseph. It was as soon as he started dreaming that his own brother draw the battle line against him.(Gen.37: 10-11).

All the attack Joseph suffered was because of his dream.

Genesis 37: 19. And they said one to another, Behold, this dreamer cometh. 20. Come now therefore, and let us slay him, and cast him into some pit, and we will say, Some evil beast hath devoured him: and we shall see what will become of his dreams.

Beloved, if you don’t pray, it is possible that some household wickedness is holding you down. They tried to frustrate Joseph dream through the following activities:

1. Evil conspiracy(Gen.37:19-20): They gang up against him for evil.

2. Throwing him into a pit like condition( Gen.37:24): This is robbing you of your God given freedom, confined to a given position, stagnated for too long. But I speak as a privilege servant, every power that condition your life to a pit, looses their hold now by the blood of internal covenant (Zech 9:11).

3. Removal/ changing of identity ( Gen.37: 23); They removed Joseph’s coat of many colours.

Beloved, your clothes are your identity. Your clothes speak of whom you are, for example if you are a king, they can easily identify you by your clothing.

Your clothes speak of where you are coming from and your culture. It also speaks of your profession. You will know a nurse by their dressing, you will know a lawyer by their dressing.

To take away your clothing therefore is to remove your identity, your coverage, your beauty, your glory, your honour and your profession.

Beloved, has the enemy take away your clothes or about to take it away? I have a good news for you, my God will recover your clothes back! To someone out there whose coat has been taken away, shame has become your companion! You feel highly insecure, and rejected.

Everywhere you turn you are being mis-represented for who you are not because spiritually your clothes has been taken away by household enemy. When you are spiritually naked, people call you names that are not your own. They might even think that you are insane whereas you are not, people think you are wicked whereas you are not.

They may call you lazy whereas you are hard working! But I have good news for you today, anywhere there is a mistake of your identity, today I correct that mistake, your true person shall emerge. God is giving you a new garment now in the name of Jesus.

4. You are being sold out (Gen.37:26-28); They sold Joseph because of his dream. He was sold from one hand to another.

That is how many lives and destinies are being sold out to the devil because of their God given dream by household enemy. And when you are sold out, everywhere you go you are enslaved and oppressed. You wonder why someone who should be a nice neighbour suddenly becomes your tormentor. The one who should be a colleague in the office becomes your worst rivals.

You are directing all your energy on them without knowing they are just contractors who took up the job of tormenting your life as assigned to them by your household enemy. Please re-direct your energy to your foundation, your family because Jesus said:

Matthew 10: 36. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.

5. False allegations (Gen.39;17-20): Your life is face with false allegation! Men may lied against you and say all manners of things. But God will certainly delivered you.

Remember this : Heaven is real and hell is real! It takes absolute surrender and total abandonment of one’s life to Jesus to make it with God in eternity! Give your heart to Jesus today!

Prayer points :
– Father thank you for your word to me today!
– Lord help me to pray against every activities of the household enemy in my family in Jesus name

Prophetic Declaration :
– By the anointing of the Holy Spirit, I rescue your destiny from wherever they sold you out in the name of Jesus.
– Wherever your garment of glory and beauty has been exchanged for shame and dishonour by household enemies, I declare restoration now in the mighty name of Jesus.

From your brother Alex
God bless you.
