Please Help Me To Fight Off This Attack

Post by astra on Thu Dec 22, 2011 8:47 am

Dear Saints,
may I humbly ask you for your prayerful support for the following issue:
last night I had a dream that a military person was talking to me about something. I can't remember what he was telling me but as he was talking, he was spitting on me. Not just a bit (you know how people sometimes spit a little when they talk). I did not see him spit on me, just talk but I had his disgusting spit on me like he just spat on me on purpose several times. I had it on my arms. It was slimy and disgusting and I was trying to get it all off.

Sure enough, today at work I found out that I was back-stabbed at work. It was a complete shock.
So anyway, what my request is - I REFUSE to take an offense. I am not going to keep this against my boss (not because I am such a great person, but because my Lord and Saviour said NOT TO!). It still hurts like crazy though. I am giving this situation to God to deal with it as He pleases.
I want to honor my Lord Jesus though. Please agree with me that the Lord will guard my heart from letting in bitterness and rebuke all satan's lies and temptations to get upset!. I will stand against it and I believe the Lord will take the hurt out of my heart! I just want to keep my heart clean before the Lord!

Thank you very much and God Bless!
astra

Yea! Isn't it interesting how different angles give us different views on the matter?! I really hated the angle my own flesh was trying to show me! Disgusting!

woo hoo You have a salary +the peace of God
Your coworker has a higher salary minus a complaining spirit and she isn't as competent as you.
So the question is: who is the one ahead???? You are!!!! When God blesses you he adds no sorrow with it. Your coworker's "prosperity" isn't really prosperity

Thank you, Deborah, Cholette and Cloud Connected for your support!
At first I wished I did not find that out. But then I thought that this situation was just another chance for my flesh to find out it's not going to rule! EVER! Praise God! He is on the Throne and He is so good to us!!!

Astra, I was just starting to pray for you and then I read your reply - WOW - I admire your desire to fight off offence, and obviously God had already helped you because of that. I remember hearing a story once about a man who had a similar situation and decided to not take offence or speak up about it, instead he trusted that God would bless him. He ended up getting the most amazing promotion out of it and the other person ended up leaving anyway. It may have been from the book ... The Bait of Satan (offence) by John Bevere.

Thank you, Ruth, for your encouragement!! I still had to fight off bitter feelings later during the day and even at night. I kept crying out to the Lord to free me and at about 4 am I felt the greatest relief ever. I feel like I said earlier - like being left out of a prison. I feel like this freedom is a blessing on its own and if I do get a promotion (which looks pretty much impossible in the natural) that would be a bonus!
The real blessing is to actually experience in your very own life the redemption of the Lord! I mean - you pray from a pit of hell and He comes and simply gets you right out so wonderfully tat no enemy can keep you in a pit. Isn't it the most amazing thing ever! It gives you so much courage to stand for anything and believe for anything at all! I mean satan lost HUGE TIME!
Another thing I have learned and would suggest to check when you stand against an offense - make sure you get your heart HEALED - set free from bitterness. Very often it is much easier to "hide" it deep into your heart, kind of bottle it up, cover up instead of actually getting rid of it.

Many blessings,
astra

praying Praying 4 God's vindication, and that you continue to keep offenses out.
