Knowing that God wanted me to write this book, I prayed to Him multiple times a day about the book. I prayed for wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. I prayed that I know all the truth. I prayed and prayed and prayed. What followed I consider remarkable and amazing. From the moment I was freed from the demonic oppression I was under, I felt a veil was lifted from my eyes. I felt I instantly had greater understanding and clarity of the spirit world and of God. Proverbs 2:3-6 “indeed, if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.”
In my research I stumbled across one thing after another that I previously
knew nothing about. Each piece fit together like a 1000 piece puzzle effortlessly. At times I would write about something and I would just kind of get in the zone so to speak. When I would finish writing, I would read back over what I wrote and I would think to myself, WOW! I understand so much better now. Sometimes I wondered where this understanding and these words were coming from then I would remember my many prayers…”God give me the words to this book.”
Perhaps the greatest thing I was taught through this whole experience was the true power of the Gospel. It is something that is always talked about but I understand it in a whole new way now. The Bible is not a book or a history of events from the early church. The Bible IS God! (John 1:1) When we read the Bible, God draws near to us. When we read the Word, we become more filled with the Holy Spirit. Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” John 15:3 “You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.” John 6:63 “The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit and life.”
The world may tell you that you are not pretty enough or smart enough but the world is wrong. The world may reward fame and fortune, but that fame and fortune will fade. The world teaches live for today, live for pleasure, and run from pain. But no matter how many surgeries you get to stay looking younger, you will still grow old and die. No matter how much money you have when your time is up, you will leave this world with the same amount as everyone else. It doesn’t matter how much earthly wisdom you obtain during your life, that wisdom is useless when you stand before God. The world teaches to obtain things and live for you. God teaches to seek Him and live for others. We all have a choice to make. We can live for the moment and choose the world or we can live for God and choose to live forever with Him. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. If you seek Him, you will find Him.
