On behalf of the people of Israel, take revenge on the Midianites for leading them into idolatry. After that, you will die and join your ancestors.”
Series: Overwhelming Victory
The enemy knows our weaknesses. He knows how to trap us and stop us from receiving our favour from God. One of the ways he intends to do it is by making us live a life of idolatry. In today’s podcast Pastor Priji will teach us how to gain “Victory over Idolatry”
Israel was a nation that was strong and powerful because of the favour that God placed upon them. Therefore, no nation was too powerful to stand before them. They walked in power and miracles day after day because God was with them.
On one occasion, the enemy plans a trap for them so they could be drawn out of their protection and favour so that the former can overpower them.
One of the way Israel’s enemy (Midianites) planned evil against them was by luring them into idolatry. Initially the Isrealite men were suduced by the Midianite women into sexual sins and through that most men of Isreal began to submit to idolatry. A time came so dreadful that most men of Israel fell for the sin of idolatry.
Numbers 31:2 is written in context to this incident. Moses tells the people to wage war against the Midianites on behalf of the people of Israel for leading them into idolatry.
Today, we need to identify the idols that are controlling us from having an overwhelming victory. The idol necessarily doesn’t have to be an object that religious people bow down before. It could be a person, a habit, etc.
Let idolatry not stop you from the blessings that has to come on your way, the favours that are yours. As Moses with the tribe’s of Isreal marched to the field of the enemy to have victory over the power of idolatry. We have grace that is given by Jesus Christ to win over every power of idolatry.
We pray that you will have a wonderful day ahead. God bless you!
