I pray that this message will be a blessing to you and that you are blessed and highly favored of the Lord God today.
There are at least 30 new members in the ministry and I have always said that I am going to be honest with you even when it comes to letting you in my past. Whatever it takes to minister to you.
I dedicated my life to the Lord Jesus Christ when I was 19 years old. I was not in a relationship when I was in my early 20's, so I thought that I was lonely. (I used the key word thought). I remember praying to God that He would send me someone to feel my time, someone that would make me happy. About a couple of weeks later, I met my second husband. I was definitely busy and he did feel my time with things. I was introduced to cocaine and then I learned how to put it on blunts and hide it in my cigarettes. I was abused physically, emotionally and mentally. I was definitely busy, wouldn't you say? In fact, I was busy for about 10 years. I was distracted.
The enemy sent me a man that kept me from praying and even going to church. I went to work on drugs and somehow managed to take care of my two children, on drugs. I was in places that I would never had been, if it were not for drugs. I looked over a lot of things in my life while I was addicted. I spent time in rat infested houses just to do drugs. Just by looking at me, you probably would never notice. I was a working class addict.
Once I started living right and got back into the church, I realized why the devil wanted to keep me distracted. God had a ministry for me and gifts He wanted to give to me. The devil knew that as long as he could keep me distracted, I would never began my ministry. The ministry that God anointed me for, would reak havoc in the kingdom of hell. The more I learned about spiritual warfare, I realized that the devil tried to kill me. To whom much is given, much is required. That is definitely a true statement.
Woman of God, if you are at a point in your life where the devil seems to be reaking havoc, it is because he wants to keep you distracted. As longs as Satan can keep you concentrating on the things of this world, he will keep you from the blessings of God. There is a ministry that God wants to birth in you and the devil knows it and he is trying to keep you distracted. He wants you to be distracted, worrying about your finances, children and your marriage. He wants to keep you distracted, on drugs, drinking and partying so much that you won't even notice just how bad your life really is. Satan wants to keep you distracted by using any means necessary, so that you will not be in the ministry that God has for you. He wants to keep you distracted, so that darkness will overshadow the light of the Lord. The more blessings that God has for you, the bigger the distractions in your life.
If you are going through a lot of turmoil in your life, it is because the devil needs for you to be distracted. He is throwing everything but the kitchen sink in your path. He knows that as long as certain people are in your life to keep you busy, you will be distracted.
If you are distracted, it is time for you to be released from the hands of the devil. It is time for you to start your ministry. In fact, some of you that will read this message know that you have a ministry inside of you that needs to be birth. Everytime you try to pick yourself up, the enemy pushes you back down. You take two steps towards God and he pushes you back three steps. The devil is cunning, wicked and very deceitful. Don't let the devil keep you distracted any longer. It's time for you to go forward and not look back. Move forward into the ministry and spiritual gifts that God has ordained for you. I need for you to realize that you are going through so many problems in your life is because the devil knows who you will become in God's Kingdom. He knows that as soon as you are released from bondage, you will reak havoc in the kingdom of hell. LET US PRAY!
Heavenly Father, I ask you for forgiveness for my sins. Father God, I pray for the women that are distracted by the enemy for their release. I speak freedom and liberty upon their lives in the name of Jesus. I pray for the women that can't feel your presence in their lives, Lord that they realize that you will never leave nor forsake them. You are waiting on them, you have kept them safe through some things they never know existed. Lord I pray for the women in abusive relationships, that they will gain peace and strength to come to you God, in Jesus name, Amen.
