Philippians 3:10 (KJV) That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death
Before Sandra and Uche met, she had given priority to knowing the Lord. Because of this, she was strong and now had a robust relationship with the Lord. Unknown to Sandra, there were some demonic powers that had vowed that she would never get married because her grandmother was a priestess but her family refused to continue in the traditions and rituals of their household gods. Sandra being the first daughter of her grandmother’s first son was the one the evil spirits decided to afflict by keeping her unmarried. But Sandra was now born again and was now growing in the knowledge of the Lord. Uche, her fiance, was also a man that knew the Lord.
As her wedding date drew nearer, darkness began to rear its ugly head. It started with bad dreams that Sandra’s fiance kept having concerning her. He would sometimes dream that she turned into a snake or a lizard. He almost broke the relationship but since he was a man that knew the Lord, he knew the Lord didn’t want him to end the relationship. He knew the Lord wanted him to stand with her and win that battle.
When he discussed these troubling dreams with Sandra, she revealed to him that she too had been having similar dreams about him. The last she had was one in which he turned into a dog and bit her.
If Sandra did not know the Lord and the power of His resurrection, those demons would have succeeded in preventing her from getting married this time like they had done before, but the Lord gave her victory, and what the enemy meant for evil brought her and her fiance even closer.
Go into today remembering that growing in the knowledge of the Lord is not a luxury but a necessity for life and destiny.
Prayer: Lord, in this year, help me know you more than ever before. Help me walk in your mighty power more than ever before. Amen.
