Breaking the Chains: God Is Greater

A Recap

 

Although we battle spiritual enemies every day, our God is greater than any enemy we face. He who parts the seas and stops the mouths of lions, can empower us to win our spiritual battles. He who calms the storms, can calm our circumstances or the storms in our hearts. He who heals and raises the (spiritually) dead, can heal us and breathe life into relationships, dreams, zeal, and joy. God is greater than anything that troubles us, and He has given us the principles we need to be overcomers.

Saying No to the Wolf

   I met my first wolf as a preteen visiting the city zoo in Paris, France. He was black, and I think he liked me. As I walked back and forth in front of his fenced habitat taking pictures of the wolves, he followed me. Head down. I got a kick out of this and started walking faster back and forth in front of him, hoping he would keep following me. He did. My mom called out for me to stop. I think she was wiser than I.

   Not too long after that, I encountered a different wolf. As a teenager, I began having tormenting, negative thoughts. After a while, my mom realized they were coming from a spiritual enemy. They hounded me until I understood they were based on lies and I could say no to them. It worked, and that wolf left.

   About fifteen years later, another wolf hounded me. In my late twenties, I experienced a spiritual battle that topped all of the others.
