When Jesus came into the ruler’s house, and saw the flute players and the noisy crowd wailing, He said to them, “Make room, for the girl is not dead, but sleeping.” And they ridiculed Him. But when the crowd was put outside, He went in and took her by the hand, and the girl arose. Matthew 9: 23 – 25
People may not congratulate you and rejoice with you when something good that is not of direct benefit to them happens to you but they will not hesitate together to talk about and act like they sympathize with you over a misfortune or evil thing that happens to you. The mourners were busy singing funeral songs at the house of the leader of the synagogue whose daughter had just died and they laughed at Jesus when he refused to agree with them that the girl was dead. Jesus threw them out and went in to wake the girl up!
Not every voice of sympathy is of God. Some of the people who are quick to call you up because they heard armed robbers snatched your car or a loved one is fatally sick in the hospital are actually agents of the devil who have come to agree with the devil in your moment of adversity. Don’t be moved by their noise. Don’t be led into an agreement that will establish what the devil is trying to do in your life. That adversity is just a flash in the pan, a temporary situation that will pass. Let every situation or circumstance be a lie but let god be true. I rebuke every evil tongue that is in agreement with the devil in your life, in the mighty name of Jesus!
Don’t hesitate to share on your favorite social media platform using the button above as you pray along as follows:
- I command every evil voice that is in agreement with the works of darkness attacking my life to be silenced, in the name of Jesus!
- I reject every evil manifestation of bondage in my life, in the name of Jesus
