Its A Spiritual Warfare- Do Not Allow Haters Distort Your Destiny!

One thing we have to understand as believers is the enemy is not happy when we identify our calling and fulfill divine purpose. In effect, whether we like it or not we will encounter opposition as we set out to do the bidding of our LORD! Now, this opposition will come in different forms and ways; from family, friends, work etc.

When Jesus was sending out the twelve disciples in Matthew 10, He said in verses 34-36 –

For I have come to turn “ ‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law—a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household”

We ought to realize as believers that whatever battle we encounter daily is not a carnal one but spiritual; its spirit against spirit. If you have been thinking people do not like you, then i want you to know from today most at times its not about them not liking you but its just that the spirit moving them can’t stand the spirit inside of you-1 John 4:4 “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”

Joseph in nature was a guy of integrity, he was loved by His father and from the dreams he had, we know he was favored by GOD! Now, the brothers of Joseph hated him because the spirit moving them was intimidated by the spirit manifesting through Joseph (can i preach to you?);

Joseph’s enemies were his own brothers! They had a carnal spirit which could not unite with that of Joseph because Joseph’s spirit was of GOD! Romans 8:7- “…..Because the carnal mind is ENMITY against God:…” Ayaa…

The bible says Daniel had an excellent spirit; the reason why you are being opposed is because you have an excellent spirit inside you-You are on course, you are doing the right thing, you are pleasing God, the spirit of God is at work in you and the devil just can’t deal with it ..My God!

In all these, you don’t have to take these opposition carnal and try to take revenge (For we know him who said, “Vengeance is mine; I will repay.” Hebrews 10:30) else you distort God’s plan for your destiny;


imagine Joseph had been bitter and offended and all that, he would not have been able to serve faithfully in Potiphar’s house. If Joseph had decided not to talk about his dreams or even interpret the dreams of his fellow prisoners taking into account his brothers hatred for him for the same purpose, he would not have ended in Pharaoh’s palace!

The word of God says- Ephesians 6:12- “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.”

Don’t allow anyone to make you bitter, angry, envious; in other words, don’t be carnal, be SPIRITUAL “for though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh” 2 Corinthians 10:3
  This is the revelation: They see something in you(your destiny) which intimidates them and because you are ignorant of this, they will try to vex your spirit to destroy your destiny! Blessings!
