The enemy's been stealing from me and I've had enough. So, shortly after midnight Friday morning I prayed for help. Well, to be honest, I yelled at God for allowing me to still be under a financial curse as an extravagant giver, and then asked for help. I know most of y'all are too holy to admit you yell at El-ohim, but I do (no, not bragging about it, just being honest about my brattiness). And the cray thing is that when I get so frustrated that I'm fussing at Him ... He shows up to do something. Am I telling you to yell? No. You live out your relationship with The Godhead and I'll live out mine. In our relationship, there's yelling ... on my end. 😬
Friday afternoon I had a business call scheduled to see about purchasing a service that would help me help my clients. Before the call, I was mulling over who I could pray with that had time first of all, and authority secondly, to address this constant demonic theft. I wondered aloud if we'd have time to pray during the business call, but I knew we wouldn't because I had another appointment right after.
But, God works things together that fit His divine timing and plans for me, and when we got on the phone for the sales pitch, the seller said we'd just pray instead. How 'bout that?! The Lord created an open window for deliverance work on facing off the enemy because I'd asked and because He was in agreement. Awesome.
We prayed, warred, thanked and hung up and went about the rest of the day uplifted. Well, Friday night, without my knowing, the enemy stole from me right in front of my eyes and I didn't see it. I go in stealth sometimes to do work for The Lord so I know invisibility works for and against us, but this time the enemy did it to me. I got notified Saturday morning. So, they either retaliated against me for our warfare that expelled them and crushed their plans of attack OR our prayer didn't work and they decided to steal to prove they continue to have the right to do so. Time will tell - it takes more than one occurrence to be anything significant.
I do have a praise report, though. I needed to purchase some event tickets for this week and was waiting for my credit card payment to post so I could. It was taking forever and I was praying that the tickets would remain available, at the seats I wanted to give (as requested by the receiver) and for discounts. Well, God favored me in this area because while I had to wait for the payment to post better seats at a lower price became available and I had time to find, not one, but two discount codes to use on the purchase, and I got bonus airline miles to boot! Again, this could be the beginning of freedom from that curse of demonic theft, BUT it takes more than one happening to make a pattern. Two times is great, but five instances of favor is even better.
And another thing about this favor ... while I was waiting for my payment to post, I was about to do something else to make the tickets happen, and if I'd done that something else, I would've paid more for lesser seats. God ordained the angel(s) who alter circumstances to move things around so that I could receive favor. Just two weeks ago, God was trying to do that for me, and I pushed and pushed and pushed and did the something else and ended up losing a bit of money, a lot of time and causing myself and others much stress because I didn't realize He was ordering things for me in favor.
