Topic: VICTORY OVER THE BEASTS WITHIN
Bible Reading: Acts 28:3-4
📖3….”And when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks, and laid them on the fire, there came a viper out of the heat, and fastened on his hand.
📖4….And when the barbarians saw the venomous beast hang on his hand, they said among themselves, No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he hath escaped the sea, yet vengeance suffereth not to live.”
🔥Even though the beast is always construed as some wild and dangerous animal in the jungle, within us dwell the most dangerous beasts which we have to identify. If Esau was told that his own brother would defraud him of his birth right and blessings, he wouldn’t have believed. Hence the psalmist shouted in Psalm 41:9 that his familiar and trusted friend that had eaten even his bread, has defrauded him. If we can identify the beasts in us, then we can deal with them. As the barbarians said in Acts 28:4, most of us are pursued by unknown beasts that want to see us dead.
🔥🔥Most people are chased about by forces of shame and disgrace. The natives wanted to shame Paul, but God gave him honour to fulfill Isaiah 61:7. For his shame, double honour was given. There are some human beasts that give bad names to people. Names God has not given to them. In Luke 1:36, Elizabeth was called barren, but God called her fruitful. You will bear children, money, good health, husband, wife, in Jesus’ name. Sometimes the beast manifests in us as arrows of untimely death. The beast of Haman, called the gallows of untimely death, failed to sting Mordecai. It, instead, boomeranged to Haman.
🔥🔥🔥Bondages of failure, poverty, non achievement, are vipers that are fastened upon our lives. But as the viper couldn’t harm Paul, no matter the beasts within us, we shall overcome. Even the powers waiting to rejoice at our downfall shall all be disappointed. Beloveth, though the afflictions of the righteous are many, the Lord will deliver us from them all. So, what are you waiting for? Build a spiritual bulwark against the internal beasts by being submissive to God in faith, and you will be victorious over the beasts within you.
🙏O Lord, use your invisible and immortal power, to expose and destroy every beast lying in wait to harm me, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏You evil wind of the sea, sent to chase me away from my blessings and harm me, I return you back to your sender by fire and thunder, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Thou Omniscient Father, dismiss from me, every secret beast indwelling me, to harm me, in Jesus’ name.
