TOPIC: Are You Your Own Enemy? (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 21 September 2020)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Chronicles 21-23
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Psalm 35:1-28 (KJV)
1 Plead my cause, O LORD, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me.
2 Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.
3 Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.
4 Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.
5 Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the LORD chase them.
6 Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the LORD persecute them.
7 For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul.
8 Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let
9 And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice in his salvation.
10 All my bones shall say, LORD, who is like unto thee, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?
11 False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge things that I knew not.
12 They rewarded me evil for good to the spoiling of my soul.
13 But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.
14 I behaved myself as though he had been my friend or brother: I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth for his mother.
15 But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together: yea, the abjects gathered themselves together against me, and I knew it not; they did tear me, and ceased not:
16 With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with their
17 Lord, how long wilt thou look on? rescue my soul from their destructions, my darling from the lions.
18 I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people.
19 Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.
20 For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.
21 Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, and said, Aha, aha, our eye hath seen it.
22 This thou hast seen, O LORD: keep not silence: O Lord, be not far from me.
23 Stir up thyself, and awake to my judgment, even unto my cause, my God and my Lord.
24 Judge me, O LORD my God, according to thy righteousness; and let them not rejoice over me.
25 Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it: let them not say, We have swallowed him up.
26 Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that rejoice at mine hurt: let them be clothed with shame and dishonour that magnify themselves against me.
27 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
28 And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.
MEMORY VERSE: “His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.” – Proverbs 5:22
If there were no enemy, nobody would have known that David had the spiritual strength and ability to deal with boastful Goliath.
PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
POWER THAT CANNOT BE INSULTED, THE LORD WILL GIVE YOU, IN JESUS NAME.
There is an important question for you to answer today. Are you your own enemy? A lot of people are their own enemies. They inflict sufferings on their own lives by themselves. They also use their mouth to cause themselves serious problem. Many people would not have had problems at all in their lives, if immediately they started to talk, somebody had bore their lips and then locked them up with a padlock. Day by day, many people harm themselves with their own mouths.
It reminds me of one man of God who had observed three days dry fast with aggressive prayers using Psalm 35 to ask God to combat and defeat his enemies. During the first two days of his dry fast, no word, vision or dream came from the Lord. He, nonetheless, continued in prayer. It was on the third day that a strange response from the Lord came to him. He felt a terrible whip on his back. When the whipping persisted, he had to cry to God to deal with his enemies and not him. It was then that the Lord told him that he was his own enemy. He then revealed to the man that He would not have whipped him, if he had not persistently prayed that God should deal with his enemies.
Beloved, I hope you are not fighting against yourself. If you are, you better repent. The question we need to answer is that: If every verse of today’s devotional text can be fulfilled to the letter, what will happen if you discover that you are your own enemy? Beloved, you need to examine yourself and make amends, before it is too late.
