Preparation Against Weapons (Kathy)
Our daughter, Melissa, was recently awakened at 5:00 am on a Sunday morning with a terrible pain in her thigh. Something was biting her. She was already conditioned to panic with a memory root of having been bitten in her sleep before by a brown recluse spider. Added to that, she had killed a scorpion in her house three weeks earlier. So conditioned, she jumped up in a frantic search to find her attacker. Suddenly, however, the Spirit of the Lord said, “Don’t you think I have prepared your body to beat the weapon I saw being formed against you?” She then remembered the downloads the Holy Spirit had been giving her in recent weeks concerning foods and specific nutrients to take. Her panic turned to peace as quickly as it had sprung up, and the bite lost its threat. She found the culprit, dead from her slap, and the bite was a tiny dot by midmorning.
“Be prepared. You’re up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it’s all over but the shouting you’ll still be on your feet.” (Eph.6:13)
