Last night I was speaking with a lady in my Restoring Hope / Broken from Struggles group. I had nothing planned to talk about. I prayed all the way there that God would show up and show out and take control of the meeting b/c I had no idea as to what to do.
During this time, God came to me and reminded me of the Angels He sent my way to help me conquer the spiritual battle that I was in the middle of. Being broken and struggling with my journey I was blind and never noticed that the Angels amongst me were sent by God to help me. However, God must have known I needed to be made aware of this and that it was His doings that He sent me HELP in such a dark dark time of my life.
So I want to thank the Angels that God sent me to battle such a war on my behalf. At the beginning of my depression journey I had no idea what was happening to myself. All I knew was that I went from such a strong woman to the weakest woman that could not get out of bed and cried all the time in what seemed to be an overnight transformation. I know now (13 months) later that was and is not the truth. In my healing, I guess I have some forgetfulness and or blindness. God re-revealed some things to me and one being the Angels He sent to ME… His beloved daughter. Yes, I am HIS !
Last night as this vision came to me I recall reading something similar in the Bible. I had to search for the scripture but I found it…
12 Then he said, “Don’t be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day you began to pray for understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your request has been heard in heaven. I have come in answer to your prayer. 13 But for twenty-one days the spirit prince[c] of the kingdom of Persia blocked my way. Then Michael, one of the archangels,[d] came to help me, and I left him there with the spirit prince of the kingdom of Persia.[e] 14 Now I am here to explain what will happen to your people in the future, for this vision concerns a time yet to come.”
Today, as I sit and reflect on my journey and this verse… I sit in AWE of God and just want to be still and praise Him. See, God does hear our prayers! They all have an answer… some are NO, so me are YES, some are WAIT, and some (messengers) are delayed by spiritual warfare and the answer is delayed.
I want to Thank the following…
~ Vaughn, My Pastor
~ Jeremy, My Associate Pastor
~ Sonya and Karen – My 2 Therapist
~ Amanda, My Prayer Warrior Friend
~ Family and Friends
Without these Angels, I know for a fact that the enemy would have destroyed me and that I would not be able to speak about my journey and praise God for what happened. They did not all come to me at once but at the right time in my dark walk. For that I am grateful ! All at once might have overwhelmed me and sent me deeper. In my heart I know God did it this way b/c he knew what I needed.
God still speaks today just as loud as He did in biblical times. We just need to sit still and listen. Last night was a revelation from my Father in Heaven…
ABBA. I praise YOU with all my heart and soul.
Reflection – In the times of battle we may not see the blueprint where everything comes together for a perfect planned outcome. WE must trust God and we must know that the outcome – the end results – WILL BE PERFECT FOR US !
