TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
When we put our total trust in Jesus, we can rest assured that He will never leave us or forsake us. His love and plan is so great for our lives that we can’t even comprehend it. But whatever may come your way Jesus is in control and He alone can see you through it. “The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy; I have come that they may have it to the fullest.” (John 10:10)
RUN PASTOR, RUN!
We had spent a whole week in Costa Rica seeing God do incredible miracles. The night before I flew home, I got into the jacuzzi in my room to suffer a little for Jesus. I fell asleep in just a few minutes.
Instead of blissful peace, I was attacked by a spirit of terror I still can’t describe. An alarm went off in my chest and something way past fear descended on me like a blanket. A dream from hell took over my mind.
In it, I was on a plane and it was going down. The oxygen masks had dropped and everyone on board was crying, praying or screaming. I noticed the stewardess in front of me make it to her chair. It was facing us and as she buckled up, she bit her lower lip and said, “This isn’t fair. This is my first flight in three years and now we are going to die.”
As soon as she said it, there was a horrible roar. I woke up splashing water all over the bathroom. I was so scared I was sick. My heart didn’t slow down for an hour. It was awful.
The next day, I was at the airport, which was going through major renovations. As I waited for my flight, a stewardess walked up and asked, “Is this the gate for American to Dallas?” I told her I thought so, then she sent my heart into my throat. “I haven’t been here in a long time. I’ve been gone for three years.”
I don’t know what she said next because I was busy trying not to have a heart attack. The poison of terror had been injected into my veins. I knew the vision was real, the plane was going down and there was nothing I could do about it. I spent several minutes making a plan not to get on when an idiot light went off in my spirit.
Since when did I base my decisions on a demonic attack from hell? I knew what the Word says, and I could not make it line up with my actions:
The just shall live by faith.
– Romans 1:17, Galatians 2:20, Galatians 3:11 and Hebrews 10:38
I was trying to live by dreams, premonitions and terror. I had never felt terror in the presence of the Lord, so I knew I was in the presence of evil. It was a spiritual setup to keep me off the plane, so I boarded, confident I was making the right choice.
I prayed all the way home. I got on the nerves of the people around me, but I lived to tell about it!
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO LISTEN TO THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH. IF YOU ARE ATTACKED BY THE DEMON OF FEAR OR DREAD, DECLARE GOD’S GOODNESS. WALK BY FAITH. RESIST THE DEVIL AND HE WILL FLEE.
