Matthew 13:25

But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

A lot of things happen when we sleep, the enemy considers such a time for planting evil seeds.

The Scriptures before us says “While men slept “

This can be put in two categories. 

First is when you are asleep Spiritually,  when you no longer take your relationship with God with seriousness. 

The enemy considers this as the best time to sow evil seed .

There are several signs to look out for when you are Spiritually Asleep,  to mention few among many .

1. Lack of Interest in Spiritual Activities.

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears.” – 2 Timothy 4:3

One of the most obvious signs of spiritual sleep is apathy towards spiritual growth.

2. Lack of Prayer:

3. Lack of Knowledge:

4. Neglecting Regular Church Attendance

5. Lack of Conviction:

6 Lack of Love:

7.No Spiritual Fruit:

8.Mistrust of God’s Promises

9.Regularly Caving into Temptation:


11. Worldliness

12.Holding onto Past Mistakes

Secondly,  While Men Slept means, When we are asleep physically,  the enemy considers this time as the best time to sow evil seed .

Every seed sown has the potential to become a tree in future and bear fruits of its own.

 So also, every evil seed planted, if not uprooted, has a way of germinating and affecting not only the person that planted it, but also generations after.

Many are going through some terrible things today, because of the seed sown in the past. 

Some cannot even discern what is wrong. 

Some, their parents sowed the seed and they are suffering from the consequences of such a single act. 

Whatever negative thing happening to you has a source. 

It could be as a result of a past mistake. 

Forgetting past mistakes does not solve past problems. 

If you do nothing about the past, sooner or later, it will catch up with the future to mortgage it.

Every evil plantation of the enemy is planted for a purpose,  and this is why you must not joke with this prayer tonight. 

Now, let us look at ten signs of an evil plantation in someone’s life:

1. A sudden change in behaviour or attitude.

2. Consistent negative thoughts and emotions.

3. The lack of peace and joy.

4. The inability to feel God’s presence.

5. Continuous cycles of sinful behaviour.

6. A feeling of being oppressed or controlled.

7. Consistent fear, depression, or anxiety.

8. A constant sense of unease or discomfort in their spirit.

9. Continuous negative attacks on relationships.

10.An unquenchable desire to engage in sinful behaviour.


1. Confess and repent of any known sin or wrongdoing.

2.Renounce any evil ties or commitments.

Renounce any agreements or covenants made with evil spirits or people.

3. Remove any objects or practices that breed evil.

4. Cut off any relationships or situations that may be causing or contributing to the evil plantation.

5. Identify what was sown into your life .

6. Pray a very fervent Prayer 

7. Develop a habit of midnight prayer .

8. Memorise the scriptures 

9. Seek for counsel 

10. Live a Holy Life .
