CASE STUDY: Jane (not her real name) loses a female friend around the same time every year. It's 'never her fault, it's always theirs' or either she doesn't 'understand what happened.' After looking at this issue I can see that there are - at least - a couple of demonic structures at work in her life.
One is the seasonal devouring. I spotted this one easily because I just broke through a seasonal devouring curse myself. This year of deliverance has proven extremely fruitful for me. Praise God, praise God!
The other is her own spiritual bump (demonic occupation) that she hasn't dealt with, yet. Namely, not taking responsibility for herself or her negative thoughts and actions in her woman-to-woman relationships. Recently she had an opportunity, perfectly engineered by God, to bring her breakthrough in this area, but instead she relented to the comfort (habit) of believing the enemy and experienced her regularly scheduled friendship loss. A really sad thing about this is that when she passed on God's window for breakthrough, she reinforced and empowered the demonic handshake again.
If you feel so inclined, release a prayer of agreement that she get fed up with the enemy stealing her friendships every year and decide to fight them (as long as it takes) until victory. I'd love to see how this works out; whether she continues with my mentoring or not. I'll report back if I get any further movement with Jane.
And speaking of cutting ties with the enemy, after about seven years of getting close to marriage and having the relationships fall apart, God healed my spirit and removed a reproach that made me unavailable in the spiritual realm. I recorded the testimony in Breaking Generational Curses Part 3: Spirit Husbands. You can download that teaching if you have the need, book a mentoring session with me or come to the Supernatural You 5779 conference in October.
I also experienced another data point of the favor released to me from God after that healing took place. For a long time I used to love romcoms and Hallmark movies - you know the type. But after all the breakups those movies began to rub on my spirit something terrible.
Proverbs 18:14 tells us our souls (sheer will) can help us make it through sickness, but who can endure a wounded (broken) spirit? Not marrying had wounded my spirit something awful, so that I couldn't even watch those sappy love stories and didn't want anything to do with them. But a testimony of my recent deliverance is I watched a Nigerian movie called The Wedding Party yesterday - it was totes cute, bt dubs and the soundtrack is nice, too - and I wasn't butt hurt that I'm not married. That's huge.
God is so good. I've been going through some serious deep deliverance since Rosh Hashana 5778. It hasn't been easy in any way, shape or form, but the treasures being released to me are increasing in quality daily - and it's good.
