As I was praying just now about the word of encouragement, I had a vision. In this vision, I saw all these demonic powers just coming to tear you down emotionally. Sometimes in our life, we have a lot of true things that happen to us that can cause our emotions to go down. But this time, I am seeing an attack. Let me explain some of the ways that the attacks are happening.
One of the attacks is harassment. You’re losing a lot of things. A lot of things seem to be breaking around your house. You try to get something done or you go to a store and you buy a part and when you get home, you find out you got the wrong part. Well, all of these situations could just be “life,” but when they pile up, I have found in my life that it is actually a harassing spirit.
I want to pray for you about that because what I see is that normally if you drop something, or you drop something in your car, you would just say, “Meh, no big deal.” But with these powers of darkness working against you and maybe just other life stress… we have a funny saying here in the U.S.; “The straw that broke the camel’s back.” I think it’s a British saying, but in other words, it means “that’s the last thing that you can handle,” and you just emotionally can’t handle anything else.
I want to pray to break apart this harassing spirit and the feelings of anxiety and the feelings that you’re just at the end of things, because this is not God’s will for your life. The word of the Lord is clear: He has called you to have an abundant life. He has called you to be in peace. He has called you to be prosperous. He has called you to live a joyful life.
I just want to say to you that when the accuser of the brethren comes after you afterwards and says, “You’re not going to make it. You’re not going to pay those bills. Your family isn’t going to be okay,” you’ve got to rise up in your soul and do what the Bible says: resist the devil and he will flee from you. I took a shot studying this in the Greek and it literally means, “And he will run in terror from you.” So, I want to say that your life should be one that is such a blessing that the devil doesn’t want to get too near to you. He shouldn’t want to be around you. Every time he comes near you, he just gets beat up.
I remember one time, and maybe you’ve heard me tell this story, where I was sitting on a kitchen stool when my kids were little and a good friend came in and said, “What is the matter with you, Cindy? You just look so tired and everything.” And I rose up and I said, “You think I look bad. You should see what the devil looks like. He has been trying to come against me today, and I’ve just been beating up on him all day long. He’s not coming into my house tomorrow. Tomorrow will be a better day and he’s not going to do this again.”
So I break the power of the harassing spirit! I’m just feeling some powers that aren’t quite right; the harassment that is in your home, around your family, around your finances — I bind that accusatory spirit. Satan is accusing you, speaking into your mind, and telling you don’t have the mind of Christ anymore. You just have all these junk thoughts that Satan is trying to put into your mind. So I want to say to you, in the name of Jesus, rise up! In the name of Jesus, rise up, cast down those imaginations, learn to recognize when it is the enemy of your soul and take authority over it! You’re a winner, and you will win! God bless you!
