Spiritual Warfare

I am not sure if this a controversial subject or not and if it is, that is not where I am going with this, but simply sharing personal encounter with spiritual warfare.

As I have become deeper in my faith and saying "Yes." to what the Lord has called me out to do... today I have experienced the unseen fight and hate satan has against us as the very image of God and the very perfection of His masterpiece. Satan hates all human beings and He is out to destroy. And what satan hates even more is the very image of God living out the life of faith that only the Lord could produce.

There is a lot going on in our household as the Lord has called us to partner with other like-minded followers of Chtist to plant a church and to boldly go out and proclaim the Truth. He has called me to partner and walk aside ministries to battle the darkness of sex trafficking and sex explotation. As we have walked in faith and pushing against what has become so normal in our society our family is and has been targeted. Though it is not me being targeted directly it is happening through the littlest and most innocent of all... My children. Which in the end targets me the most. 

My youngest is being targeted with the unknown feelings of anxiety. She has absolutely no idea how to handle these overwhelming feelings, so she lashes out in tears and rage. Just yesterday I realized this is not her... This is satan trying to weasel his way in trying to tear us down, but what he doesn't understand is the power of the Holy Spirit that resides in this house, the power of the blood that has been prayed over this house and my family, the power of prayer through Truth and love that covers this house, and the power of Jesus that will over take the dark one. I know satan knows this and I hope he trembles when he thinks of the Greene family.

After realizing what was really the core of all of this... I began to share with a few church members and with some Jesus friends, who get and understand this battle as they are fighting the same fight. This morning was covered by the power of the Holy Spirit! His presence was felt and calmness covered our minds and hearts. Jesus is BIG and he cares for the godly in such a way our minds could never understand.

To Him be the glory and honor and praise forever and ever!

“Give your burdens to the Lord, and He will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall." Psalm 55:13
