THE BATTLE AGAINST THE WASTERS

Dr. D. K. Olukoya

The Bible says that no man can enter into the house of a strongman and spoil his goods
except he first binds the strongman. This book focuses on the activity of the evil powers that
has dealt a deadly blow on the black race in particular and has truncated its developmental
process. We are talking about the power of the wasters. These wasters must be dealt with for
they are responsible for destroying Gods plans for individuals. Therefore, I want you to pray
the following prayer points before we continue:
1. Every virtue of my life that the enemy is sitting upon, come to me by fire, in the name of
Jesus.
2. Anything planted into my life to disgrace me, come out now, in the name of Jesus.
A man of God went to preach in a particular place and as a mark of courtesy, he first of all
went to the palace of the chief of the town. He greeted the chief and preached the gospel of
our Lord Jesus Christ to him. The king challenged him by telling him to first assist them solve
a problem they had with their river and then they would listen to his message. So, the man of
God went to the river and prayed for seven hours. Then the demons in charge of the river
came out and protested that they be left alone to accomplish their mission of spoiling the lives
of the inhabitants of that place. A dialogue then ensued between the man of God and the
demons. The man of God asked them whether they were the ones that got to the location
before the river and they said that the river got there before them. So, the man of God said,
Since it is the river that got here before you, then you are strangers and it is written that the
strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places. (Psalms 18:45.) That was
how he succeeded in chasing them away and, of course, he need not preach much for the
villagers to accept Christ for they had seen the raw power of God.
Isaiah 54:16: Behold I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that
bringeth forth an instrument for his work, and I have created the waster to destroy.
Verse 17 goes further to say that, No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper, and
every tongue that shall rise up against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the
heritage of the servants of the Lord and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.
The spirit of the waster is the most terrible demon that has demoted the black man. It has
done and is still doing a lot of havoc. This evil spirit is at work in every African country.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO WASTE?
a. To waste is to use wrongly. For example, pouring diesel into a kerosene lantern.
b. Not using a thing maximally.

c. Rendering a useful thing idle.


d. To render something worthless or to make it useless.
e. To damage something completely.
Before the spirit of the wasters can take over an environment, it must first of all have grabbed
the individuals who make up the inhabitants of the place. One thing that worries my spirit and
breaks my heart is the fact that there are so many people around who are not working
according to Gods time-table for their lives. You will understand what I am talking about better
by asking yourself the following questions:
i. Do I really know where my Gods-given prosperity lies? Some of us spend years and years
drawing water and hewing wood. Some of us spend years serving our oppressors. Do you
know where your Gods - given prosperity lies? As you are reading this message, do you
really know what you should do to prosper?
ii. What are the things that I am happy doing?
iii. What are those things in my life that I know can help others to attain their maximum when I
do them?
iv. What are those things that God has planted in my life that have capacity of demand?
v. What are those things that I can accomplish with minimum assistance?
If you dont have clear answers to these questions, then the wasters are already in place in
your life. That is the truth.
If you dont know how to pray in anger before, you have to learn to do so to really confront the
wasters. Once they are operating in ones life, crying is not the answer. Blaming others wont
get you anywhere. The only way out is to fight and defeat them.
A lot of men are being wasted everyday because they never find out what God wants them to
do. The devil finishes such people completely by making them to engage in activities that will
make his job easier, for example, womanizing, smoking, drinking and moving about in the
night, and little by little, their lives are wasting away. Such people forget the fact that nobody is
getting younger. Every day, everybody gets older and if by the time you are 40 and you have
not discovered the direction you should follow, then you are lost. Some people say that a fool
at 40 is a fool forever; but I believe that nowadays, a fool at 21 is a fool forever.
A lot of womens lives have been wasted. Some women are in the mess they are now
because of accidental pregnancy. They may not have been meant for the men they are
married to but because the men have put them in the family way, they were compelled to
marry them, even though there is no love between them. Many women are collapsing under
this heavy burden now and the enemy is wasting their lives. The same thing goes for some
men. That is why I said earlier that if you dont know how to pray in anger, better learn to do
so now.
The powers of the wasters are strong forces working against Africa as a whole. Even if you
dont know the whole of Africa, Nigeria serves as a good specimen. This country is so fertile

that any seed you put into the soil will grow. There is virtually nothing that cant be grown in
Nigeria. God has blessed her with virtually everything. She has abundance of minerals. Her
pilots have been rated as some of the best in the world.

A lot of very good brains are found there. The question is, what is happening to her that has
prevented her from being great? The answer is not far-fetched. It is the spirit of the wasters.
And this cuts across all black nations. The problem is not leadership. You also get it wrongly
by saying it is bad administration or the inability to plan things properly. The problem is the
demon of wastage wasting things. But before this demon took over the nations, it had started
with individual citizens. This is really sad.
One of the strategies of the wasters is to blind people from recognizing opportunities. Even
when they are right under their nose, they would not see them. These spirits are deceptive in
nature. When opportunities are available to people under the manipulation of these powers,
they will never have the true picture of what the situation is. The opportunities they are
supposed to seize will look shapeless, impossible or sometimes they perceive them as setbacks or failure. The situation will disguise as something else and make people waste their
lives by missing opportunities that can never be repeated.
Unfortunately, some of those who should go on three days dry fast and address the wasters
believe that their problems are as a result of bad luck. There is no such thing as luck. A
person is either blessed or cursed. What many people call bad luck is actually the activity of
the wasters.
These wasters are the powers that plant spiritual diseases in peoples lives, especially the
spirit of impatience. Impatience has made many people to lose great fortunes in life. It
operates everywhere - in the banks, post offices, highways, markets, homes and churches. It
is commonly said that the patient dog eats the fattest bone. So, if you are going to move
permanently from poverty to prosperity, from defeat to victory, from failure to success and
from nobody to somebody, you need to deal with the power of the wasters. The other time a
professor was jailed for a rather pathetic reason. He appropriated the rice meant for
distribution to people in his local government area to himself. When he was being taken to jail,
he was protesting that it was a waste for the country to lock up a whole professor in the jail.
But his problem really was impatience. He wanted to get rich quickly with minimum effort.
Many think that money is the answer to their problems. How wrong they are. If you dont deal
with the wasters and you are given millions and millions of money, it will vanish in no time
because this spirit will ensure that nothing good is done with it. It will waste it. It happened to
the prodigal son.
The powers of the wasters make people give up when they have temporary set-backs. And it
could be that they are just at the edge of success. They make people think aimlessly. Such

people just move through life without a divine purpose. It is unfortunate. There are some
people who go through life expecting the worst to happen to them and if anything good comes
their way, they say, Well it is too good to be true, meaning that they expect failure all the
time. These people end up blaming others for their predicaments when they should have
faced the demon of the wasters responsible for their problems.
It is unfortunate that many lives are being wasted. The Yorubas have an adage which says
that if a man spends 20 years planning to run mad, what time is he going to be released into
the market place. Close your eyes and pray this prayer point in boiling anger: I reject every
manifestation of backwardness in my life, in the name of Jesus.
It is this spirit of the wasters that does not allow people to understand that God has to expose
His people to painful training in order to turn them to champions. A champion is somebody
who has triumphed over great enemies. David was a champion. There is hardly someone who
can become a champion without fighting. But the power of the wasters will not allow people to
understand this.
People are said to be great for God because they have won many battles. It is only the fellow
who passes examinations that is promoted. God may be testing you at this moment. The test
of God for your life is to make you a champion. When God tested Belshazzar, He found him
unfit. Thou hast been weighed in balances, but have been found wanting. That was the
conclusion of the Almighty concerning the life of Belshazzar. So, in a sense, God was telling
Belshazzar that he had wasted his life.
All the physical trials that Christians are passing through today are in reality, spiritual
strategies for promotion. An untested product from the factory is as unreliable as the weather.
But when an item is tested, it can be used and you can also have guarantee on it. Great
spiritual assignments are reserved for vessels that do not break under trial. So, any man or
woman who is looking at his or her problems from beneath will be boxed to a corner by those
problems. But the man who gauges his problems from Gods position, will see all his
problems as opportunities to record Gods testimony. Peter when he was looking at the storm
from the position of Christ, remained afloat, but when he looked at it from beneath, he sank.
There are many of us who are busy wasting our time throwing stones at Moses, complaining
over very little discomforts instead of forging ahead.
What do I mean by stoning Moses? By stoning Moses, I mean blaming others for our
problems. Some people are in the habit of heaping blames on their pastors or their former
churches instead of realizing that they still have battles to fight. Your destiny is in your hands.
Avoid looking for excuses for your present predicament. Rise up and challenge the spirit of
the wasters and you will become a champion.
When the powers of the wasters are working in peoples lives, carrying out Gods
assignments becomes difficult for them. They live aimless lives -a life of spiritual
procrastination. Time has no friend. A lot of people are wasting time. Many people who put a

lot of money into very useless projects are wasting money. The man, who has money today,
becomes poor overnight because of the spirit of the wasters.
Somebody wrote me a letter which made me really sad. In the letter, she said she invested all
her money on something that somebody told her was hot cake in a particular country only for
her to get there and find out that she had sunk all her money on what was not needed there at
all. She never prayed before embarking on the business. She ended up wasting all her
resources.
A lot of families are being wasted. It is the waster that circulates a woman from one husband
to the other and also circulates a man from one wife to another. Somebody came to me and
said that she wanted to marry. I asked her whether she had found Gods chosen one for her
and she said yes. The man she wanted to marry was 57 years old while she was 48. She
further told me that the man had married five times and all the wives were dead.
Unfortunately, the sister could not see that the man had the spirit of the wasters working on
him.
The Israelites wasted all the opportunities to hear the Lord by themselves. Esau wasted all his
opportunities. If the powers of the wasters were to be working on blind Bartimaeus, he would
have missed his healing. But he refused to lose the opportunity.
Some are wasting their talents. They are using them to glorify the devil. Some are even
burying theirs. There are many things that could get a Christian to hell fire but one which is
clear in the Bible, is the burying of ones talent. The person will become like the unprofitable
steward who said, You gave me one talent and since I did not see you and because I was
afraid, and know that you wanted to reap where you did not sow, I buried it. The master had
no other option but to throw him into outer darkness where there is weeping and gnashing of
teeth.
Some people come to the house of God just to sit down, warm the benches and go away in
spite of the great talents that they have. God is recording these wasted talents against them
and they have to give an account of them.
Satan can waste a persons health by keeping the person on a job that wastes his or her
health, energy and abilities. A persons blessing, properties and spiritual power can be wasted
too. Beloved, we really need to pray hard. The power of the wasters can make people work
like elephants but eat like rats.
Cain was a wasted man. Although Samsons birth was prophesied by angels unfortunately, he
was a wasted man. Somebody like Goliath was a waste. In spite of his threats against the
Israelites for forty days, he only succeeded in promoting David.
You can waste anything but the most painful thing to waste is your life. You can put a halt to
the activities of the wasters now.

Before you were born, God had designed a purpose for you. If you are not fulfilling that
purpose, your life is in danger. So, you really have to decide to use your life to fulfil divine
purpose. May be you are winning the race nobody asked you to run or you are effectively
doing the wrong thing, you better be careful. The fact that what you are doing is good does
not mean that it is right. It is said that a good idea does not necessarily mean it is God's idea.
So when a persons life is not fulfilling the divine purpose, the person is wasting his life.
We have a lot of wasted lives around. You have an opportunity now to fight back with all the
powers that you have. The Psalmist did not want his life to be wasted so he prayed radical
prayers. He prayed violent prayers. He prayed red hot prayers. He prayed calling the thunder
and lightening of God to strike his enemies. He prayed that the ground should open up and
swallow his enemies. He prayed that the teeth of the ungodly should be crushed. He got really
violent. You too have that power. You only need to exercise it in faith and pray against the
wasters.
Now, look at yourself: are you walking in Gods plan for your life? He has designed specific
ways for us to follow. The fact that God has designed the way you should follow means that if
you do not walk therein, no other path can bring you blessing. This is the truth.
There are so many of Gods children roaming about the streets now. They cannot be blessed
until they run back to the Saviour. Once God has decided that this is what you should be and
in one way or the other, you depart from it, you have opened the door for the wasters.
A lot of pastors have been wasted. A lot of elders have been wasted. A lot of deacons and
deaconesses have been wasted and many more are still being wasted. When they should be
apostles to the nation, they are still busy distributing biscuits in one church or the other. Some
women whom God has promoted are still busy downgrading themselves by being the fifth or
the tenth wife of somebody somewhere. And God is lamenting about such lives for failing to
do what He has purposed for them.
Today is the day when you really have to break yourself loose from the wasters. So, take a
hard look at your life. What things of lasting value have you done so far for Jesus? He is
saying, I spent so many years for you, but how many minutes have you spent for me? "I
suffered a lot for you, what have you done for me? Think about it. If as you are getting older,
you look back and really cannot put your finger on something you can say that you have done
for the Lord, something that people can remember and glorify the Lord because of you, then
your life is being wasted. Maybe all you can point to is that you have become a chief not
knowing that by calling yourself a chief you are demoting yourself. How can the children of the
Most high God be calling themselves chiefs? It is a demotion.
Do you want your life to be like that of a certain sister who died and all that could be said of
her was that she married 7 husbands, had 15 children, 2 for each of them and nobody could

tell the father of the last child. Some funny priest would say, Thank God for her life. She has
gone to heaven. She did not go to heaven, she was wasted.
A lot of pastors are wasting themselves like Gehazi. They are running after gifts and money.
They run after people who will give them things. They are operating with the anointing of
Gehazi. This will not get anybody anywhere.
Beloved, you have one life to live and it is on a one-way traffic. There is no reverse journey. It
is like an arrow that has been fired from somewhere. It is going somewhere and it is not
coming back. By the time your life ends, what is going to be written in the Book of life about
you? Will it be said that you spent your life fruitfully or that you wasted it?
One man of God said that there are two ways people pass away: they either die or they are
killed. Those who dead are the ones who fulfill Gods purpose for their lives. Conversely,
those who are killed are those who did not fulfill Gods purpose for their lives.
We need to battle against the wasters. This is what is affecting Africans as a whole. When
there is a witch in the family of twenty and the witch wants to eat up eighteen people within
two years, she will first of all eat up all the bright ones. Anyone who wants to be bright gets
attacked by the witch. Any child that is intelligent would be attacked by the wasters. If you see
any child that is seriously sick in school, check, he must be a bright person. Such children
usually see strange things that other people around them cannot see. So, when the useful
ones are finished, who will help the others?
A lot of people who could benefit our country now are busy cleaning streets and washing
gutters in London and America. Medical doctors have been converted to security guards in
America. African dentists are washing plates. In Saudi-Arabia, top African professors are
working under people who are not qualified to be their students because they want money.
Where are we going? This is a waste which first of all started with individual lives.
People are running away from the farms. They want to work in the cities and when they get to
the city and discover that there are no jobs, they take to armed robbery. God forbid that
somebody will read this book and the wasters will still be working in his life. Review your life.
Is your life not being wasted as it is now? If it is, then you need to reverse the trend.
If God says you are to be a blessing to this nation and it has not been so, it is simply because
you have been doing the wrong thing, succumbing to the powers of the wasters. You must
refuse to be wasted because God did not create you to be wasted.

DESTINY IS THE PURPOSE OR END TO WHICH ANY PERSON OR


THING IS APPOINTED: UNAVOIDABLE FATE; NECESSITY.

Therefore as people created by God, we would then say that destiny


is God's purpose or end to which we were created. God's
unavoidable fate for our lives. [God meant for us to fulfill our
destinies, He placed in each and everyone of us what it would take
for us to fully accomplish our destinies]. God does not and will not
abort our destinies,we rather do so to ourselves. Destiny is God's
necessity for your life and my life. Without it life is unfulfilled and
unwholesome.
What hindered other people from fulfilling their God-given destinies
can hinder you and I if we are not careful. Remember, destiny is
determined by God alone and not by man. Not by our parents or by
virtue of our race, color, creed, nationality, nature of our birth or
background.
Let us look at the five [5] spirits that the Israelites associated
themselves with which stopped some of them from reaching their
promised land------- Canaan.
1.LUST
2.IDOLATRY
3.FORNICATION

4.TEMPTING CHRIST
5.MURMURING

Canaan land, how does it apply to your life and my life? Canaan land
has always been God's symbol of mankind's maximized potential.
Canaan is the place where God's promises are fulfilled in our
lives------the place where God maximizes the potentials of his people
both individually and collectively. And it affects their spirits,
emotions, minds and bodies------their marriages, children and
professions. Canaan is a place of establishment, peace, prosperity
and maximum accomplishment. God, in the Old Testament days
wanted the Israelites to live forever in Canaan after he has delivered
them from bondage. They were to live there in"faith" so God would
fulfill his promises to them.
God wants the same for you and I today. Canaan is real------- your
destiny is real and planned by a REAL GOD.
God wants men and women to have Canaan land marriages,
businesses, healthy parental relationships and educations. Yet men
and women today are not maximized in their marriages, businesses
and relationships----- people with unfulfilled potentials. THAT
COULD BE YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW.

Now let us look at each one of the five sins of Israel in the
wilderness.

LUST........ This lust here is not necessarily sexual lust only. This is
the kind of lust that is based on satisfying self at the expense of God
and other people. It is paramount what self wants. This is the
satisfaction or gratification of the flesh. Love is of God, and true love

is always giving. God's love desires to satisfy the object of His love.
John 3:16. God is love and love gives. Love is patient and always
waits. But lust wants to get. It is basically selfish. Love gives whereas
lust only gets. Lust is impatient and cannot wait. Lust sees only now.
Love sees afar. Lust has no understanding and is shortsighted. But
love is longsighted and has great insight and understanding.

The Israelites craved what they had in Egypt. Their feet were taking
them to Canaan and yet their hearts kept going back to Egypt. They
wanted to be in the new land yet they would not let go completely
the old land. Just like Lot's wife in the Bible. They were lovers of
pleasure more than lovers of God.
You can tell in our day when a man or a woman is loving or lusting.
They desire to satisfy themselves at the expense of the other. Lust
chooses to violate God's ways and plans. A married man can lust his
wife sexually when he only cares about satisfying himself. A young
man can profess love for an innocent girl only to find out he was
lusting when he leaves her to face pregnancy alone and fearful.
When a woman makes up many bills for her husband who finds it
difficult to pay, is not loving but lusting.
Proverbs 6:23-29, 32-35.

IDOLATRY... Is a value system that we create, and in which we


esteem something to be more worthy of our devotion than to God.
Power, prestige, education, money, business, position, religion,
prosperity, ego, pornography... Can all become idols. A television set
can become someone's idol. All pornography is idolatrous because
it's based upon man's ability to create a fantasy or image in his mind
which satisfies him and to which he can wholly devote himself.
Idolatry keeps men from being maximized in their potentials.
Personally, maritally, professionally and spiritually.

FORNICATION..... Fornication is having a sexual affair with a man or


woman that is not legitimately married to you. Fornication is very
popular and sexual promiscuity is acceptable everywhere today.
Even in the Church. Many a men today including women cannot
develop the potentials for their manhood and womanhood because
of their repetitive and chronic sexual sins. Both single and married
men and women...young and old are subject to the desires,
appetites, passions and temptations that take their toll and prohibit
them from becoming what God intends for them to be. Men's
ministries are undeveloped or lost completely. Men's characters are
undeveloped, weak or bankrupted completely. And so are women.
It's only over- comers that will reign with Christ the Lord. Overcomers are Godly achievers. They achieve or win only by THE WYAS
AND METHODS OF GOD. Not BY THE WAYS AND METHODS OF
MEN OR THE WORLD. The Israelites who committed fornication
died in the wilderness, and never stepping on the soils of Canaan.
Men still die in their wilderness, bogged down in a moral morass,
missing God's best for their lives. God did not plan so for them and
He has not planned so for you and me either.
Proverbs 5:3-13, 15-23.

TEMPTING CHRIST..... Tempting Christ is demanding that God does


what is contrary to His Will or inconsistent with His Character. We
are doing the same thing today. Lying and cheating in business, in
paying our tithes and offerings, faking our tax returns to get more
money and yet demanding that God blesses and prospers us any way,
is tempting Christ. Men and women not living right though they
know it's wrong, children rejecting the Godly counsels of parents
and elders, congregations demanding the Pastor builds the Church
on social programs rather than on the Word of God, Prayer and the
Holy Spirit, or believers wanting to enjoy the benefits of salvation
and pleasures of sin at the same time are all tempting Christ. It kept

Israel from Canaan and in our days, it's keeping men and women
from their Canaan.

MURMURING..... Simply means negative confession.


Complaining, criticizing, faultfinding, rumor- mongering, gossip, talebearing, character- assassination. These are all classified as
murmuring. God hates people like these. God hates slanderers,
blasphemers, and revilers, dissension sowers and HE wants us to
deal with them with utter vehemence and discipline. Look at 1
Corinthians 5:11. [I suggest you read from the Amplified
Version]. "How great a matter a little fire kindleth." James3:5 KJV.
The tongue is like that. Small remarks, sharp and cutting comments,
sarcastic jibes, eventually create roaring bonfires of hatred, warfare
and enmity. Destroying relationships, marriages, friendships,
Churches and Ministries, leaving nothing but red-hot ashes [embers].
Men and women murmur about their companies and their bosses
and wonder why they are not promoted. They murmur against the
Church, the Preacher and wonder why their breakthroughs are not
coming and their children and loved ones do not respond to the
gospel. Luke 20:19-20.
They murmur against God's Word, take offense when they are
counseled and corrected by God's Word or Godly men and women
and then complain when they do not see faith, growth, stability,
contentment, progress and maturity take place in their lives.

INVITATION TO REPENTANCE AND CHRIST.

If you have thoroughly understood this message/admonishment and

lesbianism, or habitual masturbation, indulging in pornography,

gratifying yourself with sexual fantasies or any other sexual sin such
as oral or anal sex, I COMMAND YOU IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF
JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH TO REPENT AND BE RESTORED TO

THE HOLY SPIRIT NOW!

BE THOU LOOSED AND SET FREE TO FULFILL YOUR DESTINY.

SINCERITY, WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

Transparent honesty, genuine purity, manifested clarity and


unsullied innocence.
It describes one who does not fear thorough examination of his
motives and intents, because he or she has nothing to hide. Let's
strive to be sincere in all our dealings.

And they said to one another, look this dreamer is coming! Come therefore, let us now kill him
and cast him into some pit; and we shall say, some wild beast has devoured him. We shall see
what will become of his dreams! Genesis 37:20

Have you been invaded by dream killers? Do you know who your dream killers are? Do you
know how to overcome them?
Josephs brothers, being jealous of him and offended that he dared to believe a dream that he may
one day rule over them, sought to do the one thing that would ensure that the dream never
materialized: kill him. How would you like to be the victim of a plot to take your life to ensure
that your dream never materializes? The truth is we all are a victim of dream killers. Satan works
each day to plot and strategize how to kill you to ensure that your dream is never realized. That is
why the scriptures say, Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about
like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.( 1 Peter 5:8) Thank God that we have His
grace which abounds greater when we are being attacked by the enemy. And of course when God
does allow us to go through attacks, as He did with Joseph, He does it in order to work it together
for our good. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come
that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. (John 10:10)
Though some of us will face physical attacks and betrayal like Joseph, the real battle that we all
have to overcome is not physical but spiritual and mental. It is the battle of the mind and spirit or
spiritual warfare. The enemy can bring you physical harm, but only you can allow the dream to
be killed. The enemy uses various tactics that I call dream killers to ensure that our dreams are not
realized. We must learn how to identify them and not give place for them in our lives. These
dream killers are:
1. Doubt the devil wants us to lose confidence in ourselves and our dreams so that we may
stop dreaming and pursuing the dream. Be willing to be wrong, but reject doubt at all
costs. Doubt is double-mindedness which creates an instability that guarantees your
dreams will not be realized. James 1:2-8
2. Fear the devil wants us to be afraid of success and/or failure more than we fear God. We
are called to fear only one person God. Be willing to fail and quickly recover so you can
embrace the responsibilities of success as you realize your dreams. II Timothy 1:7
3. Unforgiveness the devil wants us to hold grudges against those who harmed us which
can blocks Gods ability to forgive us and becomes a weight that keeps us from running
towards our dreams. Forgive and forget. You may be hurt again but you will never regret
forgiveness. This will protect your destiny as your dreams are realized. Matthew 18:35,
Mark 11:25-26
4. Greed the devil wants us to fall in love with the trappings of success as our dreams are
realized and love things more than God and people. Never be motivated by money, only by
a love for God and people. This will keep your dreams pure. I Timothy 6:9-10
5. Sin the devil wants us to compromise in our Christian walk and in our heart which keeps
us from being intimate with God and pleasing Him.. This keeps God from getting the glory
as our dreams is realized. Reject sin at all costs. This will keep your dreams sanctified. I
John 3:4
6. Unbelief the devil wants us to doubt our faith so that we may question who God is and no
longer recognize Him as the source of our dreams and manifestation. Even when you
doubt, seek the help of God to give you the grace to believe. This will keep you in
fellowship with God as your dreams are realized. Mark 9:23-24
7. Discouragement the devil wants to use the daily challenges of life and our failures to
discourage us from pursuing our dreams. Never, never, never give up. Never give up no
matter what. This will give you the perseverance to persist until your dreams are
realized. I Samuel 30:6
8. Procrastination the devil will distract you with other things that bring you temporary
pleasure to keep you from doing the heavy lifting to bring your dreams to pass. Have a
mind to work. Work is worshiping God with your talents and procrastination is an attempt

by the enemy to cause you to worship yourself rather than God. Working unto the Lord
almost guarantees that your dreams will come to pass. Proverb 6:6-11
9. Lust the devil wants you to crave the trappings of success as your dreams are realized
and abuse your body and mind. Cultivating an appetite only for the things God allows you
to be moderate in all things so you can enjoy the fruits of your dreams without violating
your vows and obligations. I John 2:15-17
10. Pride the devil wants you to believe that you did it through your own ability, to think
more of yourself then you ought to think, Forget how you got there, who brought you there
and focus more on your talents and smarts. Remember that pride comes before the fall. It
is a human smokescreen that allows us only to see what we want to see. This is a sure way
to destroy everything that God has blessed you with. Proverb 16:18-19
Joseph did not allow the dream killers to get to him, and not only did his dream come true, but God
used him to save a nation and a people who became a catalyst for the coming of the Messiah. Our
dreams are never about us, they are always about those who God wants us to bless. Who may be
missing out on a blessing because you have not realized your dreams?
And Joseph said to his brothers, Please come near to me. So they came near. Then he said:
I am Joseph your brother, whom you sold into Egypt. But now, do not therefore be grieved or
angry with yourselves because you sold me here; for God sent me before you to preserve life. For
these two years the famine has been in the land, and there are still five years in which there will
be neither plowing nor harvesting. And God sent me before you to preserve a posterity for you in
the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance. So nowit was not you who sent me here,
but God; and He has made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout
all the land of Egypt. Genesis 45:4-8
My prayer for you today is that you will know how to recognize dream killers when you see them
and that God will give you the grace to shield yourself from them so that your dreams may be
realized for His glory.
