VICTORY IN JESUS
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” – Ephesians 6:12
As we provide Christ-centered programs to the addicted and poor men, women and children in Manitoba, we are well aware of the spiritual realm around us. For example, a volunteer named Dennis recently shared that while meeting with a woman through our street ministry, she told him she was picking at the ends of her fingers because there were worms coming out of them. Dennis offered to pray for this lady, to which the individual said that he was going to have to pray to Satan as he has his angels around her. Dennis informed this dear soul that God is more powerful than the devil, and that she can be freed from his control.
Further along in Ephesians 6, we’re told to put on the whole armor of God including truth, righteousness, the gospel, faith, salvation, the Word of God, and prayer. I’m so thankful that throughout each of our seven ministries we know that we have victory in Jesus. Jesus has won the battle over sin, addiction and death.
Please remember to pray for the Mission as we’re in the trenches where people’s eternal destinies are at stake!
