Freedom Friday - A Force to be Reckoned With

Dear Satan,

Be afraid...be very very afraid.  I am force to be reckoned with.

I know that you hate my heart and that you hate what my life counts for.

I know that you feel like you have victory in holding people in captivity, but I rise to the statement - "Not on my watch!"

I know that you think that you can try to tear me down with your lies and confusion, but I am calling you out.  You are a liar and a thief and I will have none of it anywhere around me.

Oh, you have lots to fear in this daughter of the King because I know my power and I know the authority at my disposal.  You have lost.

I know that you remind me of all the hurt in the world and all the stories of captivity and you try to tell me that it's no use fighting.  But I laugh in your slimy face.  Hahahaha... because I know.  I know what is truth.  I know how the story ends.  Need I remind you of the work on the cross?  Need I remind you of the Savior that died to set the captives free?

Oh, I see how you have tried to steal my life away from me.  I see how you have tried to steal my purpose and leave me in shame.  But, you know what?  My God redeems.  My God has set me free from your lies.  My God has given me the authority to command you to leave.  My God has called me to the purpose of moving on the behalf of others and I rise to that calling.

Oh yes, I know that the calling on my life is huge.  I know that you try to tell me that I don't have what it takes and I would like to tell you what I think about that ... well, you're just a liar!  Here's my truth: Isaiah 61:1 "The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor.  He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners."

I know that you don't like it when Christians realize their potential and worth.  I know that you try to do everything that you can to take it away.  But, guess what - I am on to you and I'm not having it.  I chose to move forward with power and authority.

I know that you are just scared - and ya know what....You Should Be!!!

Signed,
Melany
