Something really amazing happened today and I am so excited to share! I had one of the biggest spiritual breakthroughs that I have ever had in my life. I won't go into all of the details, but God sent me deliverance from a spirit that has been attacking and hurting me for about twenty years of my life. I prayed in the spirit for over an hour and I felt the power of God working all around me as I felt the weight lifting off of me. It was one of the most powerful prayer sessions that I have ever had. This thing/person can no longer hold me in fear, because I know that the almighty God is on my side and no matter what Satan throws at me, he's already defeated! God has already taken care of this situation- I don't need to fear my future any longer!
I have to tell you that if you have something/someone in your life that involves fear, manipulation, guilt, selfishness, insecurities, narcissistic behavior, boasting, lies; it's not of God. I don't care if that person claims to be a Christian or who they are. God doesn't put guilt on you, threaten, blackmail, lie or manipulate. That's Satan- period. End of story.
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."- Ephesians 6:12
Before I could pray for deliverance, I had to repent of several things that I was guilty of such as insecurities, rejection, fear, wanting to be in control, allowing gossip in my presence (ouch). It's so easy to be consumed with things that are not of God that slowly creep in without us noticing. Satan is constantly busy at work, so we have to stay on guard at all times.
I feel so blessed that God chose to discipline me, because it just means that he truly loves and cares for me. And to be honest, I didn't realize that I was being ungodly in several ways until he showed me.
"For the Lord corrects those he loves, just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights." Proverbs 3:12
I am so excited to see what else that God has planned for my future! I know that without a doubt, there are so many wonderful blessings coming my way soon!
Have you ever had a major spiritual breakthrough or deliverance?
