This is an addendum to my post from last week, “Ding Dong, The Demon Fled”.
So in typical Susan fashion, I over think the whole demon extrication incident. Which, to be fair to myself, this is a little outside the bounds of what occurs in the typical day of anyone, so I can’t beat myself up too badly about how I went running to God in a tizzy…
Me: God, are you kidding me??? Okay, I am super thankful that you pulled that demon out of my step daughter, but still it makes me scared.
God: Of what?
Me: Well, I’m thinking if I keep going around blabbing about and writing about and bragging about You, then the devil is going to start torturing people I love. I think he was warning me. God, I saw him, he made me see him, because he wants me to shut my big mouth up about you. I don’t care if he smacks me around, but….
God: Hush a minute. I already know what you were about to say. Listen to me. That was NOT a demon you saw Wed. night!!!
Me: Oh, wow! So a demon didn’t come out of her… Now I feel like such a fool…
God: Hush. A demon did come out. But it had been in there long before you were blabbing about me, and it had nothing to do with you. Everything isn’t all your fault. I want you to stop thinking that way.
Me: So are you telling me that blue, swishy, vapory thing that I saw when my husband fell back and the pastor fell on the floor was a figment of my vivid imagination.
God: Get your Bible and open it for me.
I open the bible and read out loud. “The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves me; and whoever [really] loves me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.] John 14:21 (Amplified Version)
Me: That Blue Thing was You?
In my mind at the moment, I envisioned a cartoon Superman coming and going and I am seeing that swish of power that both precedes and proceeds his presence.
God didn’t have to say another word, but He did.
God: That was deity that you saw. Do you really think that the first time that I would let you see into the spirit realm, that it would be evil that I would allow you to see? I knew that would freak you out too much. But you may see it someday; but where you see the manifestation of evil, you call on Me, and I will show up. And you will know that I am there because now you know what “It” looks like!
Oh, yes I do!!! It looks like the Power behind a Super Hero. And God had me open my Bible again, “And I will set My face against them; they shall go out from one fire and another fire shall devour them, and you shall know (understand and realize) that I am the Lord, when I set My face against them.” Ezekiel 15:7 (Amplified Version).
I don’t know about you, but I intend to live in this world brave and courageous, because I can!!! Because I can walk through the evil parts of the world and I can encounter evil people, demons even, because I am walking with, and holding hands with my Father, His Son, and a Super Hero, I mean the Holy Spirit…
“I shall fear no evil”!
Live boldly and unafraid. May God’s blessings rain on you with abundance!!
