Writing a blog on Facebook has been amazing, but I have been feeling led to make a change. I’ve enjoyed the comments posted, and the comments shared personally have blown my mind. I’m so thankful that my journey can somehow touch other people’s lives. My hope is that by changing the format of where I write, now people who are not on Facebook will have an opportunity to engage in this journey I’m on.
It is only by the grace of God that there is hope for me. I would love for you to become part of my journey of living a life of freedom in a world where, at every turn, is an opportunity to become a slave to something. As I venture through this life, my goal is to be real, to be vulnerable, and to glorify my King.
Right now all I can think about it how amazing it is to be plugged in with friends who you can fight for and who are willing to fight for you.
Today I was praying for my friend’s son, who is amazing and satan hates and is attacking him to try to ruin the call on his life. I was also interceding for a family who I believe is going to make it although right now all signs point to impending divorce.
I was feeding my son as I was praying and fighting, by claiming scripture, asking God for His perspective and agreeing with Him, and praising God for who HE IS, when all of a sudden I heard in my spirit, “If you don’t stop, you have no idea what I can do to him.” This was the voice of our enemy. He was trying to scare me off and fill me with fear so I would not pray for God’s best for these treasured friends of mine.
I’m so grateful that lately the Lord has been speaking to me all about His protection. Currently, I’m reading a book all about Psalm 91. This has been bringing me amazing revelation about God’s protection and how to access it. Also, the Lord has been highlighting a ton of scripture that defines His protection over my family and I. It was only because of how saturated in this truth I am that in the face of this attack, I was able to boldly make declarations of God’s protection.
I stated things like:
If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Romans 8:31
No weapon formed against you shall prosper… Isaiah 54:17
Because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world -1 John
Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. … 2 Kings 6:16
I also claimed as in Psalm 91, that the Lord has sent His angels to have charge over my family. I remembered that I prayed on and was protected by the complete armor of God, and the fiery darts of the enemy could not penetrate.
As I claimed all of this truth, my confidence in the Lord swelled, and I began to pray with a renewed energy and resolve. I WILL NOT BE SILENCED BY FEAR! I will continue on until these loved ones walk into the victory God has for them.
So, why do I share this? I share this to encourage you, Do not be afraid of a created being, when you serve the Creator! Do not allow fear stop you from fighting if it’s a fight God has asked of you. Find rest, strength, power, and authority in Christ. In His victory, by His Spirit, all things are possible. Trust in the promises in His Word, spend time meditating on them, memorize them, experience them. You will be set free from terror and fear, and your enemy will not be able to defeat the Christ in you,the hope of Glory!
Be encouraged Mighty Warrior!
