I was having spiritual attacks again and I asked God for help. Every year around certain holidays I feel the attack of the enemy more, and I think it’s bc we are weaker around those times if we have been battling for long-term. No matter what I do or if I try to avoid or pray it just seems to still come worse at certain times, but we learn to rely on the lord more for those times and he sustains us. He doesn’t always take the storm away, but you will see his hand move more in it to sustain us. God did calm it all during the day and it was clear it was him, and then I was battling my flesh again with attacks at night and that night when I went to bed I said to God, “God, I need your help I cannot fight this off.” I could feel the wrestling in the spirit. I woke in the middle of the night after falling asleep to hearing Jesus say, “Get Thee Behind Me Satan.” I thought and pondered on that all day bc it was so powerful to hear him fighting for me. He taught/reminded me a few things from that, first we can ask him for help if being tempted or attacked. Second, he is in me and I am in him as he said to me before, so he was fighting for me inside me bc he is a part of me. Third, he was teaching us how to resist the devil and he will flee. There is power in our tongues to defeat him with Jesus inside us. See how powerful that is. I was literally calm after that. Spiritual battles are very real and not just a game of the mind. They are attacks on God’s people from the enemy. Why do you think we need the full armor of God…bc we fight not against flesh and blood etc….Ephesians 6:12. If you are called, the attacks will be even stronger or battles longer in order to be prepared for ministry. The good news is, seasons change.
Matthew 16: 23, “But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.”
LUKE 4:8 “And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”
Vision: I saw two words in visions….”Trust” and “Focus” which goes with what I write below regarding the promise and with things we struggle with as well.
Vision: I had this vision for last post and forgot to write ab it and it keeps popping back in my head, so I think God wants me writing it. I saw a man with a manbun again. It was pulled towards the back in a small bun. He had dark hair and looked very similar to other visions I seen of the strong man, but not sure fully if it was. He was muscular, but not too big and he had one of those tan long sleeve shirts on that had a waffle weave texture all throughout. I think they called them long john type shirts. It was like he was at a gathering and was talking to someone while standing. This was right before christmas I had this vision, so it felt like he was at a family gathering for that.
Words the Lord has repeated over and over – “Watch” and “22”….God has said these words to me before in past post regarding watching him presenting the ribs to their husbands as in Genesis 2:22. He also is saying for all he made a promise too, to be watchful and watch what he say’s or guides you to do to get to the promise as he did the Israelites. For some God will say be still and other’s he will say move. You need to hear him for yourself as did others so he can guide you personally to the promised land or your personal promise. I pray that whoever this promise is for currently that he does not let us miss any opportunities he has for us and we keep our hearts and focus on his direction and guidance. That we incline our ear to him always with love for him. The lord is always teaching, always directing, always guiding, and always patiently waiting. He is so beautiful!
