I feel like I have been under attack of the devil. I asked the Lord to use me, and promised I would go where he sent me. I told him it didn't matter the cost, I want to work for him. The Lord honored my prayer and has directed me. It's been a struggle.
Sunday morning, in church, as my thoughts were about this situation, I felt a demonic resistance. Suddenly, there was such a pressure on my chest that I could hardly breathe. I think Satan was trying to make me think I was having a heart attack. I tried to pray it off, and I felt some better, but it was still there, threatening me. At our altar service, I requested our pastor pray for me, telling him what I was feeling and what I thought it was. He prayed for me, the Holy Ghost moved, and instantly, that feeling was gone.
There have been attacks since God first revealed my call to this situation. There have been attacks since deliverance of this incident on Sunday. There was an attack last night.
I know it's the enemy and he has no power over me in Jesus name. With each attack, the Lord has shown himself faithful.
Then this morning as I still slept, I felt a leg cramp starting. For any of you that have experienced those, they don't stop instantly. Lay still and the muscle continues to spasm. Move and the muscle still spasms. There are little tricks to help ease them, but afterwards your calf will be tender from the experience. Well, I cried out "Oh Lord" and don't you know, our Lord stopped that leg cramp instantly. I didn't have to do anything to make it stop. I didn't have to experience tenderness afterwards. Oh Praise his name! I know, it was just a leg cramp, right? Yeah, but God showed me that all I have to do is call upon his name. He is there for me. He will protect me from the enemy. After last night's attack, I still believed the Lord would help me. My faith wasn't down. I was concerned about where this attack will lead. I do think though I needed this experience this morning to help me, to give me strength for my journey.
Dear Heavenly Holy Father, please allow me to know your voice. Please direct my path. Please let me always to trust in you. Please let me withstand the fight of the enemy for your glory Lord. Lord, I thank you for your faithfulness. I thank you for what you are doing in my life right now. You said if I draw nigh unto God he would draw night unto me. You said if I hungered and thirst after righteousness, I'd be filled. Oh Lord, I praise you for your mercy and your grace. I praise you for loving mankind, and most of all for loving me. I pray that this "little" witness will help someone today. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
