Topic: WHEN THE ENEMY IS AGAINST YOUR GREATNESS
Text: Psalm 71:21
Ministering: Dr. Daniel Olukoya (G.O MFM Worldwide)
There are many things that the enemy can do to prevent a person from becoming great.
1. Attack from the womb: A lot of greatness dies inside the womb without even coming out for anybody to see. So they are living on earth, they are supposed to be great, but the greatness has been taken from the womb. They are just carcass of that glory, moving about. They now become a diamond in a dunghill and a shining light buried under the crucible of frustration and disappointment.
Raise up your right hand and pray this:
🔥 Any virtue stolen from me from the womb, I recover you by fire, in the name of Jesus.
I will be wasting your time here if I begin to tell you specific examples and cases that I have seen and God has delivered them.
2. Ignorance about destiny under which the enemy operates. That is, you do not know your destiny. You do not know that you are a Mary, that God wants to bring something special out of you, but because you did not know you carry the “Mary anointing”, you were sleeping around with any man and aborting all around and ended up aborting the destiny child you could have had. If you had known, you would have kept yourself.
3. Attack on health. Part of the reason the enemy is bombarding people with sicknesses is to prevent their greatness. Ordinary malaria fever can make a person fail an exam.
🔥 I am praying for anyone here: if the enemy is attacking your health because of your greatness, receive your healing, in the name of Jesus.
4. Diversion: an attack of the enemy. He knows that if someone stays in a place, he will be great. So he diverts the person and they take the person away from the place of destiny, the place of greatness. If God asks you to stay somewhere and you leave the place, whatever blessing He has for you, He will forward it to that address. But if you are not there, that is the end. It is just like when you are sent a parcel from the post office but you left the address already.
5. Seduction. Sometimes in the name of “I love you”, a lot of people miss greatness. That is what dealt with Samson. He found a woman and did not even try to make findings about her, he only said “marry her for me, for she pleaseth me well”. He was not even interested in whether she was going to please God, all he wanted was for her to please him.
6. Wrong marriage. Once you marry a deficit, you are finished.
7. Unprofitable relocation. These are ways the enemy diverts greatness.
8. Confusion. The person does not even know what to do.
9. Wrong foundation. A person lays the wrong foundation for himself. For example, he is supposed to study medicine but ends up with the wrong subject combination because the enemy made him to study the wrong subjects.
Let me explain to you tonight. It is a well known fact that majority is not always right. Sometimes, the majority that is not right means that it is all the fools gathered together in one place. So, you do not determine your destiny by majority votes. It is also true that one can be very sincere, and also wrong. You can be sincerely wrong. So the fact that majority is doing something does not mean you have to follow them. The enemy can give you a masquerading breakthrough to make you lose your greatness.
The enemy can even give you a glamorous visa to get you off the paths of greatness. We may be carried away by the gifts and talents of others and underrate ourselves. What I am telling you is this: the enemy will use any weapon in their arsenal to remove people from their place of greatness.
When does the enemy seek to divert a person from greatness?
– when your destiny is considered risky.
– when he sees that your prophetic agenda will touch many lives.
– when he sees that your life will impact generations.
– when they can see that God has raised you up as a battle axe and they do not want your axe upon them.
– when he finds out that he cannot kill you. So they try to divert.
– when your spiritual hand is already on the neck of the enemy and you are about to strangulate them.
– when the eagle of your destiny has discovered the secret of overcoming-strength and soaring.
– when many other destinies are attached to yours.
– when the evil wise men have been assigned to monitor your destiny and you do not understand that there is a time to take over and a time to take cover. When it is time to take cover and you try to take over, it will end in tragedy. The parents of Jesus took Him away from Herod and fled to Egypt. It was time to take cover. When it was time to take over, same Jesus came and was moving about and speaking woe to the Scribes and Pharisees.
He would throw questions to them in the market place and answer their questions. He could not be stopped. That was time to take over.
🔥 I am praying for somebody here who has been buried even before he was born, that you will receive the Resurrection power and you will possess your possession, in the name of Jesus.
WHEN THE ENEMY IS AGAINST YOUR GREATNESS, WHAT DO YOU DO?
This is where you need to listen to me very carefully now.
1. You must develop a fighting spirit. Many times, we are too passive and we want to allow the status quo to just continue. We begin to sing songs like “what will be, will be”. For such people, any time things do not work according to expectations, they just let everything die. But Jacob did not let what is going to be, to be. He was going to a die a cursed man, in poverty but he fought it from Jacob to Israel.
It was easy for blind Bartimaeus to beg around, nobody would have healed him. But he gave it a rough fight. He was asked to shut up but the Bible says he shouted even more. The shouting was so inconvenient until it gave Jesus a break and He could not move. Please read your Bible very well. There are some principles of heaven that cannot change. Look at that woman with the issue of blood. She obeyed a principle of heaven. Jesus was carrying the power and when the woman touched him without permission, she got healed. She had obeyed the law of faith and power got out of Jesus to heal her. Jesus said “virtue has gone out of me”.
That woman was a fighter. Blind Bartimaeus was a fighter. God loves people who are fighters. God never abandons fighters. Jacob had a fighting spirit. He wanted to conquer and occupy territories. The church should be a place of fighting in the spirit realm. This is a serious matter. Some come with funny prayer points. “Father give me a wife that has at least a three bedroom flat and a car. I want to enjoy” – A lazy man that does not want to fight for his own possession.
Fighters dictate terms. Your Father, God is known as the Lord of Hosts. The captain of the Host of heaven. The Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces in heaven. The Lord Sabaoth. So we His children, cannot afford to be civilians.
Can you raise your voice with fire where you are and shout: O God arise, give me the fighting spirit, in the name of Jesus.
2. Form good habits and become a slave to those habits. All men are slaves to their habits, but the truth is that bad habits imprison the future. Bad habits must be destroyed. If you must be a winner all the time, be a slave to good habits. Habits are those things we do which become easy through constant repetition. Be a slave of good habits. If you are the kind of person who eats nonstop, stop it. Stop the habit of prayerlessness.
Stop the habit of grumbling and complaining. Stop the habit of thinking the whole world is gossiping about you. If nobody is gossiping about you, then you are dead, gone. My father that has now gone to be with the Lord does not have anybody gossiping about him anymore. So it is only the dead that are not gossiped about. So if they are not gossiping about you, it is likely you are not doing what you are supposed to do. The enemy is clapping for you? It is because you are doing what he wants.
3. Persist until you succeed. Do not be the kind to give up in a hurry (Proverbs 24:16). Know for sure that you were not delivered into this world in defeat. Failure is not supposed to run in your blood, you are a child of God.
4. You as an eagle, must refuse to talk or walk like a chicken.
5. You must ask God to empower you to be the kind of raindrop that will wash away mountains.
6. You must ask God to empower your ants to devour lions.
7. You must never accept defeat.
8. Remove from your vocabulary, words like impossible, failure, hopeless, “I cannot”, incapable and avoid despair.
9. You must ignore the obstacles at your feet and keep your eyes on the go.
You must understand that as a child of God, if you persist long enough, you will win. “For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.”
This is where we are stopping for today. We will continue at the next manna water service.
1. O God arise, send your angels to fight for me, inside the coven of darkness, in the name of Jesus.
2. Powers destroying the answers to my prayers, die! in the name of Jesus.
3. (Raise up your face to the heavenlies) Every shrine conjuring my image, die in the name of Jesus.
1. Power of wretchedness, you are a liar, die in the name of Jesus.
2. Powers riding the horse of my destiny, somersault, die! in the name of Jesus.
3. Powers transferring me from battle to battle, your time is up, die in the name of Jesus!
4. Powers assigned to increase my disappointment, your time is up, die! in the name of Jesus.
God bless you🙏
