Soon after I began writing Taken From The Night the subtle attacks began. I’d finish writing an entire section only to find my computer crashed, losing hours of saved data. I had to choose what I would do next. I could ignore it, hoping it would go away or I could hide in fear. Psalm 27 says “The LORD is my light and my salvation whom shall I fear?The LORD is the stronghold of my life of whom shall I be afraid?” I decided to stand firm, rewriting entire chapters and backing them up on disk. The computer crashes soon became only a temporary nuisance as God provided me with a computer tech who would quickly fix my computer.The attack then moved on to the battlefield of my mind.The enemy knows the word and twists it to his advantage.He flooded my thoughts with reminders of what I had done.I had to resist the feelings of guilt and embrace the grace being given to me. I was blessed at that time to have a pastor who continued to encourage me to get back up when I fell. He would remind me of the actual date I’d given my life back to the Lord and reemphasize that I was a child of God. “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” Hebrews 12:1-3 There was a time when I thought all beliefs were going in the same direction until I received a vision that revealed two armies going in opposite directions on the same battlefield.Whether you realize it or not, you’re on the battlefield.There is a source attempting to prevent you from doing your part in advancing the kingdom.You have a choice to ignore it, run from it or prepare for battle. Psalm 144,”Praise be to the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.It’s time to go back to one of my weapons of warfare, the keyboard.“They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony”. Rev. 12:11
