  1. In Courage,

    I have been in a spiritual battle between devil & God since last fall. The devil has been speaking lies to me & getting me to act in ways I never would have before. Prayer hasn’t always been my go to, but I have been singing praises to God my savior & rock. Other things include listening to TV preachers like Steven Furtick, & attending worship weekly. My ex-pastor’s wife sends prayers to me on Fridays each week. All that combined seems to be working. God seems to be loosening Satan’s grip on me.

    Two things come to mind: 1) Steven Furtick’s sermon series “Satan you’ve held me long enough” and The War Room movie scene where wife tells Satan “I don’t know where you are devil, but I know you can hear me. You have played with my mind & had your way long enough. No more! You are done! Jesus is Lord of this house and that means there is no place for you here anymore. So take your lies, schemes & your accusations & get out in Jesus Name. You can’t have my marriage. You can’t have my daughter & you sure can’t have my man. This house is under new management & that means you are out! And another thing I am so sick of you stealing my joy. But that’s changing too! My joy doesn’t come from my friends. It doesn’t come from my job. It doesn’t even come from my husband. My joy is found in Jesus. And just in case you forgot He has already defeated you. So go back to Hell where you belong & leave my family alone!” That’s what I feel like saying in a nutshell!!

    Blessings 🙂
