It was in that one moment that the legions of angels came and heralded with their trumpets- and Satan and His regimens were completely destroyed from wreaking havoc in this woman’s life. It was a supernatural and spiritual warfare that transpired. Father God did it. He sent an angelic host to free her from the torment that His Son had died for. Freeing the woman from chains that had kept her in bondage since she was a little girl.
She knew there was a dramatic change. She was so relieved. She was so thankful. Only God could have done this, yeah, through a minister who had been obedient and who had gained her trust. Yes, friend, one moment in time can change your circumstances. Come to the humble place. Look at your own weaknesses and sins and own them. God still loves us even though we sin. Obey God as best as you can.. Ask God for His forgiveness and help to get free. “Help me, Lord.” Find an accountability counselor. Seek recovery groups. And watch God work. Seek prayer from other Christians. Go to the altar calls. Let the anointing of godly leaders refresh and heal you. Find a strong Bible believing Church. Cry out to God with a contrite heart.
Resist the sin. This is an active turning of your back on the sin, be it lust, worry, anger, rage, envy whatever. Live in that “free” place like a child. And laugh at the devil, because his days are numbered. Consecrate your body, eyes, ears, and senses to God. The resistance itself will bring you to a different place where you will be able to see from a new perspective. New strategies will come in this place of resistance. The full trust and victory will come. Expect it! He took all torment from us because of His torment at Calvary that He suffered. “The chastisement for our peace was upon Him.” (Isaiah 53) His thorns! Refuse it in your mind and life! Don’t give Satan one more second of your abundant life. Just say “Halleluah anyway!!!”
We who have been tormented and mocked or ridiculed and rejected must receive the complete love of God and refuse anymore torment in our lives. Satan could not touch Jesus because there was no sin in Him. Jesus was sure of His Father’s love for Him. “The fear of man will bring a snare.” Our acceptance is complete in the cross. We do not need the acceptance of people. Strive for a sinless and a pure life.
I stand on Ephesian 6:12 knowing that it is Satan who works through people to bring us pain and abuse, not the people themselves. For we do not wrestle with flesh and blood but against principalities, powers and rulers in heavenly realms. “Forgive them for they don’t know what they are doing.” By praying for them we bless them. Bind the enemy off them in the name of Jesus as if they were your closest friends who unfortunately have abandoned and betrayed you as Judas did to Jesus. Respect the devil but do not fear him. Eventually your frustration will turn to a compassion for the very people who are abusing you, because they need Jesus.
When you ways are pleasing to the Lord, He will make even your enemies to be at peace with you.
