I pray that this helps you my precious friend.
IT'S A SPIRITUAL BATTLE
I'm praying for you my precious friend. The Bible is our source for strengthening our wisdom. Scripture is food for wisdom.
Philippians 4:8 NASB
"Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things."
YOU are a CHILD of God!! TRUTH trumps feelings, and you have much more power as a child of God than you realize. Please know that greater is HE that is in your than he (Satan & demons) who is in the world. If you are a child of God, indwelled by the Holy Spirit (this happens when you confess & believe in Jesus Christ as Savior), you have the authority to resist the devil and his demons, and they MUST flee! Satan prowls around like a roaring lion seeking to devour children of God. Please pray out loud and with the authority given to you by Jesus: "By the power of the Holy Spirit, I rebuke every evil spirit which seeks to oppress me, and I command the devil and all evil spirits to leave my home and leave me alone, in the name and by the blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I am a child of God, and am protected by the blood of Jesus."
I shall pray God's protection for you, sweet Michael. In Jesus' holy name, Linda
God's Word (the Bible) tells us how to be saved in Romans 10:9-10, "if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved."
Here's the Gospel (the Good News), Michael, in an easy to understand summary: The Gospel is the Good News that God became man in Jesus Christ. He lived the life we should have lived and died the death we should have died, in our place. Three days later He (Jesus) rose from the dead, proving He is the Son of God and offering salvation and forgiveness of sins to anyone who repents and believes in Him (Jesus).
Michael, if you are ready to become a follower of Jesus Christ, for Him to be the Lord of your life, then you can have forgiveness of sins and a place in heaven forever, pray this prayer out loud with your mind and heart and believe it:
"Heavenly Father, I acknowledge that the separation between us is because of my sin. I confess that I have sinned and have fallen short of Your glory. I thank YOU that YOU sent YOUR Son, Jesus, to pay the penalty for my sin. I believe that He died on the cross for me. I believe that YOU raised Him from the dead. I am sorry for my sins and I ask YOU to forgive and cleanse me. I want to turn away from everything the Bible calls sin and receive YOU as my Lord, Master, and Savior. Help me to love, serve, and obey YOU for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name, AMEN!"
Michael, if you prayed this prayer and believe in your heart & mind what you prayed, YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD, right now! You are now indwelt with the Holy Spirit, and you have power over the devil and all his demons. Now you can pray the cleansing prayer I shared with you earlier. Whenever you feel frightened or overwhelmed, just call out to Jesus, and HE will help you, my friend.
The next thing you MUST do, is find a church which teaches from the Bible, and connect yourself to other believers in Jesus so you can be encouraged, strengthened in your faith walk. Please let me know if I can help in any way.
Love in Christ,
Watch this video, it's on this website!
Just to add to what Journeyman and Linda have shared, it is essential to continue replacing the lies with the Truth, from the Word of God.
Please watch this video of Dan Mohler's on what it really means to resist the devil.
God bless you brother.
Michael, do all these things that have been recommended. Also, and very importantly, talk to a medical doctor and tell the doctor these same things. You could be having a mental problem through no fault of your own. The brain is complex. Please get some medical attention. God uses doctors to help us. Good luck and may God bless you. Annie
I understand. Go to the doctor again, and explain this all again. Sounds like you need a different medicine or a different dosage. I have no medical training, but this situation is obviously complex. Seek God and seek medical help. Talk until someone listens and takes your health seriously. Tell the helper of any drugs you are or have taken. A mental problem is a health problem just as kidney disease or a tumor is a medical problem. Get professional help. Mental health is often free. Check online for your area. Confide in your friends and spiritual leaders. Your life is important. You could actually be on too much medication. Find solace in nature and maybe try the BIble on tape as you exercise. Eat right also. Get some professional help. I genuinely care, as do other readers. Good luck an may God bless you.
