What This Ministry Leader Learned About Spiritual Warfare When the Devil Tried to Destroy Her

by | Oct 1, 2019 | Women

I have been serving God in a leadership capacity for 17 years straight now. I have seen quite a bit during my years of serving. The longer I served, the more I saw. It’s not easy being in leadership. People do not understand the battles that come with this position.

It is hard for people to understand the downfalls, the shortcomings and the many mistakes that are made behind the scenes. No one can imagine the countless tears, apologies and repenting that goes on during many leaders’ prayer times.

Many will never understand how hard it can be to even start a prayer after being disobedient to God. The devil has a way of binding us with guilt and condemnation. The shackles are real if we continue to believe the enemy and his lies (Rom. 8:1).

It can be enough to drive a person insane. It can cause a person to quit. But I am telling you, God will bring you out.

I didn’t realize I had been fighting depression and anxiety the whole 17 years I walked with God. I was binding and casting out demons, all while struggling unaware. I never understand how and why this continued all while I was doing deliverance on myself and others.

I had no clue what this was. The more I fought in the spirit, the more the devil set me up to take me out. The more I had no idea where his entry was to my soul, the more he took hits against me. I would speak with other apostles and spiritual leaders, and no one could really advise me on the type of warfare I was experiencing. It was super challenging.

I finally sought counseling, even though I have a master’s degree in counseling. I knew I needed tools and an outside point of view. I love my counselor because she is also a believer in the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. It’s amazing how blind we can be because of generational curses and habits we have lived from years ago. I thank God for my Ananias. The scales are being removed, and I can see even more clearly (Acts 9:18).

I believe servants of God need as much unbiased help and support as possible. Pray for your leaders. Help with the burdens. Support them in spirit and in truth. Bad things happen sometimes to good people. Remember the same devil who tries to steal, kill and destroy from you is the same one who is trying to do the same thing to them (John 10:10). Do everything in love and not judgment. Then stand still and watch God move (Ex. 14:13).
