For over thirty years I lived in the darkness of sin. In the beginning, I tried to free myself from the chains of those strongholds, I only found myself drawn back to it. The harder I tried, the more I was tempted to return! At one point, I started to lose Hope, be discouraged and even wondered if The LORD would ever answer my prayers for Freedom. I hated my same-sex attraction because I truly understood what it was, a dark demonic spirit. Yet I could not get Free from it on my own. That’s right, I couldn’t do it! David could not do it!
I drew closer to GOD and shared with my Pastor, and others, what I was discovering about sin and about HIS Truth, and it was then that Hope revived. I came to the realization that I did not have to stay where I was because GOD Almighty had robed HIMSELF in flesh, came to this world as The Man, JESUS CHRIST, and had died to set me free. Oh Hallelujah! My life began changing when I realized that it was only HIS Strength that could get me through. It was only The LORD’S help and HIS using others in my life, that made me realize the power of those dark spirits had been broken and I began winning battles. I began to accept myself as a man of GOD and could finally be in the presence of other men without feeling inferior or tempted.
Now I know that I can take Authority over those hideous spirits trying to oppress me! I know that I can, in JESUS’ Mighty & Powerful Name, take Authority over them, bind them and cast them into oblivion for eternity! Hallelujah! In The Mighty and Precious Name of JESUS CHRIST of Nazareth! We have The Authority!! HE dwells within us! Realize this! Wake Up Sheeple! It is time to know “who we are”, “what we are” and “Who lives within us”!
If you asked me 6 to 7 years ago if this was possible, I would have said, "No," because I experienced nothing but defeat then. Now I see what GOD has done for me and, as I enter in by Faith, HE has changed and continues to change me. This is Freedom. I am not who I used to be, and yet I am not who I am going to be either. Thank YOU, JESUS!
Thank YOU, FATHER, for the gift of YOUR Sacrifice. Sin can no longer condemn me, control me, depress me, or dishearten me! Thank YOU that the power of those dark oppressing spirits is broken. There are battles still to fight, but I fight from Victory, not for it! Thank YOU, JESUS, for YOU are the Captain of my salvation and all is well as I trust in YOU Alone. It is in YOUR Holy & Precious Name JESUS, that I Pray. Amen.
