"And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour." Acts 16:16-18
Paul had been tormented and followed for days by an evil spirit who continually dogged his tracks.
Over and over for days at a time he would be ridiculed and mocked as this young girl full of demon power would cry out behind him.
It seemed innocuous enough at first but finally the Apostle had had enough...
Paul had finally reached the point of being angered and grieved!
How long will you allow the devil to dog your tracks? How long will you tolerate his mocking and ridicule before enough is enough?
How long will you tolerate his occupation of your mind? How long will you tolerate sickness in your house? How long will you tolerate the enemies occupation of your finances? How long will you tolerate the devil's tormenting of your peace?
I suppose it will be as long as it takes for you to finally become grieved!
You see you cannot overcome what you are content to tolerate.
It's time to treat the devil like the dog he is. It's time to treat the spirits sent against your family like the filthy animals they are....
It's time to turn around, stomp your foot and declare with authority....."In the name of Jesus! ENOUGH!! -Come out!!"
It's time to break the enemies stranglehold off of your life...
It's time to turn the tables and walk in the power of the Holy Spirit!
You have been called to turn the enemies world upside down-it's time you start acting like it!
