As GOD was telling me the story behind my first novel my eyes began to open. I suddenly realized that demons are real. A real pain in the ass. Whether you choose to believe they are influencers or that they are directly disturbing your life the bottom line is that they are real. Jesus banished some from the wild man into pigs. They are there whether you choose to believe or not. Can they win? No. Jesus wiped out all your sins and mine. You just have to accept that fact. So what is their goal? To destroy your joy. The joy you feel every day. Their purpose is to rob you of that and to prevent you from sharing the gospel of Christ with others. The bible states that 1.3 of the heavenly host were cast down. Cast down to EARTH. They were not cast down to the lake of fire. Or to Hell. But to EARTH. So, that having been said, you are currently working, living and loving with 1/3 of the cast down angels. Are they happy about it? ummm… no. If you reflect the glory of Christ. If you are clothed in Christ. Do you think that they would be happy to deal with you every day? ummm… No. So here is the deal. Acknowledge that they are there and that their sole purpose is to rob you of your joy and then don’t let them. When you start to feel that anger well up in you about your screwed up fast food order? rebuke them. When you feel your rage building as you drive in traffic? rebuke them. Don’t let them rob you of your joy. Be sure of yourself. Be confident in the Lord. Let your LIGHT SHINE!
