LISTEN: If you know me by now you know I'm not one of those, "poor baby," mentors or teachers. I've had my butt kicked by the demonic and lost absolutely everything and at that time no one at my 13,000-member church was able to deliver the wisdom I needed to turn my life around. When people come to me because they're in the pit - and I"ve got more right now than I have in the last year all together which is good 'cause they're getting delivered to a new level - I don't waste their time or mine. I give it straight so they can win and pull others up and out. There are a lot of folks out there right now who are serious about deliverance, and that's awesome. It's required for true abundant living. But there are just as many who wait until they're in complete crisis to reach out and it doesn't have to be that way. Then there's even more who have no idea that mediocre living isn't actually their destiny.
I know from personal experience that you're going to have to get over the fear of someone knowing everything you're going through when you're struggling. Confession starts deliverance. When I finally got desperate enough and was willing to listen to someone else to get free, I prayed and Holy Spirit told me to trust fully and share with my assigned deliverer. I did and the rest is history.
Here are some prayer strategies for when you're in a full-on attack and everything is falling apart at the same time. If you will implement these things, you'll win. I'm a living, breathing witness.
Again I'm sorry that you're going through such a rough time right now. Here are some things to keep in mind during this season of difficulty:
Hahaha ... yep. I tell people not to be a baby and then write, "Love, Z." I do love. But I'm not going to kiss a boo-boo when you need the Healing Balm of Gilead. That's what I gave; healing balm.
Those words above are guaranteed to deliver you out of any situation if you act on them. It's up to you. No one else can perform your actions for you. There is another step to being repaid by the enemy when you get your head together and are stable again and that's seeking Justice from the Throne of God.

God is a God who loves to bless. In the written Word there are thousands of promises of peace, health, joy, wealth, love and more. They're all waiting for believers in Christ to ask, believe and receive them. O Lord, Bless Me Abundantly: 30 Days of Sowing the Word is to be used as a shepherd's staff that will lead you as you journey down the path of continual blessing and abundant life.
Beginning with O Lord, Hear My Cry: A Book of Psalms Devotional, my books are a testimony of my deliverance from Egypt to warring and entering my personal Promised Land. I lived for years believing that if God wanted me blessed the blessings would fall into my lap. Through a relationship with Holy Spirit, His wisdom has taught me how to effectively ask, seek and knock and have the doors and windows of heaven opened for me.
And [Jesus] took them in his arms and blessed [the children], laying his hands on them. ~ Mark 10:16
There are so many people in the world who despise children. Children are an inheritance from the Lord (Psalm 127:3) and that brings the attention of the enemy. In this portion of Jesus’ history the disciples didn’t feel children were worthy of Jesus’ attention because He had such important work to do every day. But Jesus was always doing the unexpected. He allowed the children to come to Him, He loved on them, and decreed blessings on them.
If we point our children to Jesus and allow them to build individual relationships with Him we won’t lose them to the world. Jesus’ love is too powerful to walk away from permanently. If we foster relationship with Him, His blessing, and understanding, we won’t even have to deal with them walking away for a season. With His vision of success for their lives they won’t leave Him because it can’t be realized without His leading (Proverbs 22:6).
Decree aloud Mark 10:16: Jesus, take my children, biological and spiritual, and all children in the world in your arms and lay your hands on them for blessing.
