It's indeed amazing to me how God has me covered, and shields me from things that I am unaware of until I look back and realize, "Hey, He was protecting me from this situation, or that individual." God is good! About 3 months ago, a major door opened for me, and since then I have been swept away in the rushing winds of manifestation and moving forward...pressing towards the promise and really just haven't looked back. There were certain people that He weeded out of my life in that season, that I simply moved on and left behind. As much as I would try to meet...it would never happen! Thank you, Jesus! And now I see why He allowed me to leave them behind at that time, as there was once again a major demonic clash of slander that took place (unnecessary distractions).... In my mind, I thought, "Ugh..here we go again with this foolishness. The same ole...same ole false accusations due to immaturity in communication. Lawd, Jesus...deliver us from this continuing stupidity...." I thought this was over. So as usual, you rise above it, tune them out, focus on the amazing things that God is doing in your life, and keep it moving. I guess, I've always been one of those people who are transparent and "keep it real". It's the easiest, most authentic, and best way to live. There's freedom and deliverance in it! And then from there, you can truly move forward in faith (confession & faith confession), but you'll come across those that don't flow that way haha.
A few weeks ago, I was prophesied to that I was communicating with someone that had a strong spirit of manipulation on them, and that God was breaking something or someone from off my life that was causing more damage than good, operating out of witchcraft...whether knowingly or out of their own ignorance, and that He was severing the tie. It was getting in the way of me birthing promises that He has over my life. I just recently discovered who and what it was, and boy do I feel so free! It took the most, demonic incident to happen in which they tried once again, slandering my character in the dark, for me to see who they truly were, and what it clearly was. And it's always an extreme form of wicked activity. And always, instead of coming clean and repenting, they try to cover and slander to protect their name, or I would receive a highly manipulative email or text in the dark. I would discern something dark, but wasn't quite sure. However, as time went by and I became more mature I would begin to see the strong manipulative intentions behind the messages. Just shortly after the incident took place, I heard the Lord say, "They don't understand prophecy and how it unfolds. They're insecure. They operate strictly under the law." And it's funny because 3 years ago, I received that same word that my warfare were the people that I was under, that which they don't know, they don't touch, and that God was canceling every assignment of demons in that environment that hindered my purpose. With it being reiterated, it is now clear to me who it is, and that I needed to sever the relationship because it was stunting and destroying what God was trying to birth in my life more than developing it. They resolve their problems by stalking social media profiles, slandering and assassinating people's character, having split personality where they act one way in the dark and portray themselves as innocent in the public, and reading emails instead of having real genuine face to face conversations (social issues), and use control to solve their problems instead of letting go and letting God.
Sometimes individuals who are not secure in their trust in God, can try to yank, pull, and use high levels of control to try to make things happen that are either not of His will or just out of His timing. Or they try to control situations to a very high level that are truly out of their control. It's an insecurity and lack of peace in understanding that God is faithful to unfold His plans and that the will of God is going to happen no matter how hard they try to stop it or try to make it happen...and learning how to simply trust and rest in the unknown. Individuals who struggle with this also have a hard time properly interpreting the prophecies they receive, and end up delaying or aborting than allowing it to truly manifest to what it's really meant to be. They need to be matured in that area. I challenge you today, that if you have someone in your circle that struggles with the spirit of control, to cut the tie, take space from them, pray for them to be delivered in this area, and if it's the will of the Lord, in the right time, it will mend...if it's meant to be. God always has a way of putting together what's meant to be together, as I have had several testimonies to know His power in bringing things together that are meant to be together. But when the relationship is mended, the 2 of you will be at a much different and healthier place. We cannot control the times and the seasons....
