I had trouble sleeping for a few days because I was worried and scared. At one point the other night I even felt like I was having a panic attack. I knew this wasn’t good so I prayed and asked God to help me fall asleep and to take away whatever I was feeling. I eventually fell asleep but was so tired all day yesterday because the lack of sleep. I knew this feeling was NOT of God so it had to be some type of spiritual attack. So last night Kyelia and I went around the entire …house, praying and rebuking any and everything that is not of Him IN THE NAME OF JESUS (Mark 16:17; Acts 16:18). Our rooms, closets, bathrooms, the basement, every single room. I prayed over my house my baby and myself…. Our thoughts, our actions, our fears, I handed everything over to Him. Let me tell you, I slept like a baby last night!
Just like we clean, dust, and mop our houses to get the dirt out we have to clean out our houses to get those evil spirits out. They get in through people, things we watch, things we bring in and they will dwell there as long as we allow. In my case, I believe it was something I watched this past weekend that scared me so much. I even texted my friend while watching it that this movie is making me feel a certain way but I just gotta see how it ends. She even told me I should stop watching it. It is exactly what triggered those anxious feelings that did not go away until last night when I prayed it away.
Evil spirits are very real and make their move through things we watch, music we listen to, social media, books we read…. Anything that can enter our minds and influence our thoughts. Awhile back, I stopped watching and reading certain things that make me feel lustful and I can say that lust is no longer my biggest struggle. I rebuke that demon daily in the name of Jesus! And it’s certainly by the power of prayer, fasting, rebuking, cutting out certain movies, tv shows, books, practices, and people that I’m able to conquer that demon.
This is my favorite scripture because it reminds me that it’s those unseen things that we need to be on guard against:
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
Ephesians 6:10-12 KJV
