I read this excerpt from Stormie Omartian‘s book, “The Power of a Praying Wife” and I felt super impressed to share it today.
“You have to trust that what has swarmed over you, such as abuse, death of a child, infidelity, poverty, loss, catastrophic illness, or accident, can be relieved of its death grip. You have to determine that everything consuming you and your [family], such as workaholism, alcoholism, drug abuse, or depression, can be destroyed. You have to know that whatever has crept into your relationship so silently and stealthily as to not even be perceived as a threat until it is clearly present-such as making idols of your career, your dreams, your kids, or your selfish desires-can be removed. You have to trust that God is big enough to accomplish all this and more.” Stormie Omartian
“And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.”Colossians 2:13-15
God has made His decision to relieve the death grip on your life, to destroy every yoke of slavery, remove the power of all idolatry, and so much more for you to be completely free. Now it is your turn to trust Him, believe Him, agree with Him and obey Him! You can, if you will! What are you waiting for? He has taken His turn, now it is yours….
