Breaking the enemy’s backbone

Archbishop (Dr.)<br />Olanrewaju OBEMBE

Job 42:10 “And the LORD TURNED THE CAPTIVITY OF JOB WHEN HE PRAYED FOR HIS FRIENDS, also the LORD gave JOB TWICE AS MUCH as he had before.” Galatians 5:6 (AMP) “For if we are in Christ Jesus, neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only FAITH ACTIVATED AND ENERGISED AND EXPRESSED AND WORKING THROUGH LOVE.”

The Word of God declares emphatically that there is a realm, where there is no occasion of stumbling. 1 John 2:10 “HE THAT LOVETH his brother abideth in the light and there is NONE OCCASION OF STUMBLING IN HIM.” This is a realm where the enemy can never get you. While it is important for us to exercise faith, speak in tongues, prophesy and communicate mysteries, THERE IS A HIGHER REALM where we have been mandated to get results. That is the realm of walking in GOD’S LOVE. (Galatians 5:6). Our faith can only be productive, when it is exercised through God’s love. Obviously, the enemy cannot walk in love. The realm of love is alien, foreign and impossible for the wicked ones. Our walk in the love of God is a potent force that will always break the enemy’s backbone. Those of us born of God are born of His love and God’s Supernatural love has been shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit. Romans 5:5 “And hope maketh not ashamed because THE LOVE OF GOD IS SHED ABROAD IN OUR HEARTS BY THE HOLY GHOST which is given unto us.” Every time we walk in love, we whip the enemy because walking in love is a powerful atomic and chemical bomb against the enemy. No matter who you are or how highly anointed, people will always hurt, malign, insult, abuse, exploit, slander and deliberately do things that will make us bitter and resentful.

JESUS SAID as long as we live here, offences are a constant factor. Luke 17:1 “Then said He unto His disciples, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE BUT THAT OFFENCES WILL COME; but woe unto him through whom they come.” We are expected to overcome offences with God’s love. Offences are the baits the enemy employs to keep us bitter, lose focus and be distracted from our prophetic assignments. When we know that the BEST OF MEN are still MEN AT THEIR BEST, we realise that every human being is fallible and capable of doing what is wrong or the unexpected.

We know that love does not rejoice in iniquity and through God’s love we are able to cover multitude of sins. Proverbs 10:12 “HATRED STIRRETH up strifes BUT LOVE COVERETH ALL SINS.” THE STORY OF JOB gives us an insight on what to do in times of crisis, particularly when our FRIENDS BECOME UNFRIENDLY with negative postulations on the reasons for our challenges. JOB got a turnaround, when HE PRAYED FOR HIS UNFRIENDLY FRIENDS. It is important to note that nothing significant happened to Job, until he prayed for his unfriendly friends. God was waiting for him to pray in love for his enemies before his breakthrough came and he received a double portion of everything he lost. I am sure so many people must have hurt you, but this is the time to break the enemy’s backbone by praying, showing love to those who hurt you. Take bitterness out of your heart, uproot vengeance and allow God to fight for you. Vengeance belongs to God. Walk in love and your turnaround will appear like a new day’s sun. To walk in love is to walk in God because God is LOVE. 1 Cor. 13:13 “And now abideth faith, hope and LOVE; these three; BUT THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE.”

PRAYER: Father God, I come to you for cleansing. I receive cleansing through the Blood of JESUS. I delete every bitterness from my heart against all those who have offended me. I truly forgive all those who have hurt me badly. I pray that you will forgive them and show them mercy. I genuinely pray from my heart that something good will happen to these individuals. Thank You LORD for showing all of us Your mercy. I refuse to walk in bitterness. I will love even my enemies.
