Text: Psalm 55: 12. For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him: 13. But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance. 14. We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.

The most painful thing that can happen to a man, is to be among unfriendly circles.
Beloved, association are like ladders that either takes you up or brings you down.
Sometimes we think our battles are connected with an external world whereas the enemy of a man are the people of his household. Micah 7:6.
We have them everywhere, in our family, at work, even in our churches.
Beloved these evil friends appear like Angel, but their heart is evil.

Beloved be wise in the midst of such association.
They are capable of striping you naked off your vision, your inheritance, and even your life.
The Bible tells us of two brothers Cain and Abel, they grew up together, had their own carrier, but Cain was masked, and when God accepted Abel’s offering, he killed Abel his own brother.
Beloved, you never know your masked enemies until God decides to show His mercy on you for all your sacrifices and hard work, by uplifting you.
We see evil masked siblings, masked uncles, relatives in our families today.
Beloved the heart of men is evil and desperately wicked.

There’s one way of overcoming evil friends, that is by making Jesus Christ your number one friend.
When Jesus becomes your dearest, he reveals the intention of men to you, warns you ahead of impending danger and gives you way out of demonic snares.
Put no trust in man, but put all your trust in God alone.
Beloved be wise.
Be careful in your words, for the intentions of men are revealed by their words and actions.

I pray God to invade your family and your circles and unmask every Judas around you.
May God give you discernment to know the intentions of men.

Shalom.
