Today a brother came over that has been struggling with depression, along with other serious stuff for some time. After listening to him and asking God to visit us I began to pray over him; speaking not to my brother, but to the spirits that have been tormenting him. What happened afterward was amazing...he didn't feel anything crazy happening in his body, as some people do when being prayed for in this way, rather he sensed God coming around Him and holding Him as a father would hold his son. It was powerful, and as this was happening, God filled him with incredible joy and hope! This was the first time he felt either one of these emotions in some time. We both stayed in my garage full of joy as we experienced the manifest presence of God together in our midst.
The Scriptures tell us it was for freedom that Christ set us free...Jesus paid too great a price for any of us to live under the hand of the enemy whose plan is to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10). Jesus promised to give us life and life abundantly...thankful to see this firsthand tonight in my garage!
"The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil." (1 Jn 3:8)
