Only when I allowed the Holy Spirit to speak to my heart and empower me, could I see the fight within my mind and the physical feelings of captivity for what it was; a lie from the pit of hell. I hadn’t put on the armor of God to fight. In fact, recall, I refused to even pray.
If these lies sting when you read them, then I bet you have felt them, too. Felt them within the very deep parts of your being. Felt them, have heard them, and feel like you are powerless against them.
I’m learning that we have to battle these lies with God’s Truth. We have to battle the Devil’s whisperings with God’s proclamations. We have to battle these thoughts with God’s thoughts. We have to know who we are in Jesus.
