I wrote a blog in May, titled “Get behind me Satan”. I am going through another Spiritual War right now, still fighting but Praise the Lord, I see and feel victory coming! Even though some things may sound repetitive, it’s quite different this time. I know Satan will always be around, looking for the littlest opening to try to sneak in.
Put the full armor of God on
This is why we need to make sure that we have our Full Armor of God on at all times, we can’t let our guard down (this statement was a God message to me from my Brother IL, which is also Ephesians 6:10-12, continue reading on to 18 for a description of the spiritual armor. And he says he’s not good at reciting scripture. Surprise, yes you are Bro), SO Good!
I am in “Awe” of God for revealing the one after another “WOW” messages to me over the past few days. The Holy Spirit is definitely with me, getting those H.S. chills 🙂
What is the full armor of God?
The full Armor of God includes “Spiritual Weapons”. Our weapons are the Word used in various ways. We can pray the Word, speak the Word, sing the Word, and study the Word. We need spiritual weapons because we are fighting master spirits, yes, even the devil himself.
Even Jesus used the weapon of the Word in the wilderness to defeat the devil (see Luke 4:1-13). Each time the devil lied to Him, Jesus responded with “It is written” and quoted him the Word.
Try doing this in battle, say: “It is written, For God so Loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not parish but have eternal life” Or “It is written, God has plans to prosper me, not to harm me. Plans to give me hope and a future”. What ever your situation is, find your verse and proclaim it!
How Satan feels threatened
Ever since I started this blog, which was in the middle of May of this year 2020, Satan has been trying to intervene. This is the 2nd attack since May, it’s only July! Tell me that Satan doesn’t feel threatened, he see’s where God is taking me and he’s pissed. God spoke to me numerous times even when I was still with my Ex, two years ago.
I recently questioned it but now I know without a doubt, that this is how God wants to use me as one of his vessels, to spread his Word. I did not endure all those years of hardship for no purpose. God is using it to propel me forward and to use my hardship and experiences to help others as I already am. I am overwhelmed with happiness that Girls are reaching out to me for prayers and advice from all over the world, even India! Hallelujah, All Glory to God!
A couple weeks ago, I had a very vivid dream, still not sure if I was awake or sleeping. Something, a heavy-dark fearful force squeezed behind me and spooned me, Yes spooned me! As I felt it, I didn’t move I just froze. It didn’t take me long to realize that it was evil. It tried to whisper something into my ear, as soon as it did I called out to Jesus. I repeated “Jesus, Jesus…God thank you for fighting these demons, Thank you for protecting me”. Then I woke up and it was gone.
A week later, the same thing happened except no spooning this time, Thank God! I just felt that same heavy-dark fearful force in my bedroom. I yelled out “Thank you Jesus for protecting me, Thank you God for fighting this battle” and it left. Then my car all of a sudden, without warning broke down, which almost made me miss my first day back to work after the Covid shut down (Thank God for good friends living close by) however, it did make me miss Church the next day.
Satan will try to distract us to drive us off course
This all started after I took a 9 day trip to help my Nephew and his Wife with their newborn, 2 & 8 yr old. While I was there, I did not have a chance to open my Bible or computer to blog or write. I did read my daily devotional but only maybe 3 days. When I came home, I couldn’t get motivated to restart anything, I lost my momentum. I had a lot of Bible readings to catch up on, as I am systematically reading it, so I felt overwhelmed.
A couple nights I had the intention of blogging/journaling then something came over me and said; you need a break, have a glass of wine, relax -watch TV and do the journaling tomorrow. Tomorrow came, then something else came up. My business started to pick up, stores re-opened after being shut down from the pandemic, got together with friends & family. All of a sudden I was out more than being home.
Fight by refueling your soul
I now see that these things were all Satan’s distractions. I got lackadaisical, I even went to bed without kneeling to pray (which I do most of the time). I felt a little disconnect, which I didn’t like so I played my “go to song” (Here’s my Heart from Casting Crowns). This song always speaks to my heart, it’s a Holy Spirit refuel. I Worshiped in my room, as always it helped.
Last week my Brother from another Mother, Kevin (my person, especially when it comes to spirituality stuff) came to visit, as we decided to take a road trip to go to his favorite Church (The Heavy Metal Church in Ohio). When he got here I told him what happened and how I felt that Satan was attacking me. I insisted that he slept in my bedroom and I take the couch, so he could get a good night sleep.
We had a 10 hr drive in the am and he was doing the driving. About an hour into our drive, he said “So, we need to pray over your room when we get back”. I asked why? Did you feel something? He replied, Yes! I thought he was kidding at first but he assured me that he felt the dark force and he feels that Satan is definitely trying to get to me. We both believe that our last minute trip was all in God’s planning. He was meant to be here, he was meant to feel what I was feeling to solidify that what I was feeling was real.
When two or more pray
When we came home at 1 am the next day, we prayed in my room to cast out the demons. I did not feel anything the next day, I actually had a good night sleep. But some odd stuff happened over the next couple of days. Like a “Holy Spirit” picture feel off the wall and broke and I had a bizarre dream with Satan disgracefully using my Mom’s image.
Today, two obstacles making me late for Church. The 1st exit being blocked, which detoured me 5 min out of the way, then missing another exit because I was distracted thinking about all the crazy things that were happening (see, once again, he distracted me). I was so upset because it made me over 10 minutes late when it was my day to Serve.
Strengthen each other
And it’s crazy but me and Kevin have been going through the same seasons in life these past couple of years which brought us even closer together, which is good because together we help strengthen each other (he is my Christian concert buddy also). He’s been feeling attacked lately also and now some weird happenings are going on since he’s been home. So we are now going through the “Season” of a “Spiritual Warfare” together.
