New Blog Post: "Exalt the Lord our God"

Psalm 145:1-5 NIV I will exalt You, my God the King; I will praise Your name for ever and ever. Every day I will praise You and extol Your name for ever and ever.
Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; His greatness no-one can fathom. One generation will commend Your works to another; they will tell of Your mighty acts. They will speak of the glorious splendour of Your majesty, and I will meditate on Your wonderful works.

I can really applaud God for His great works He has done in my life. He has delivered me from all evil forces which had hold and a grip upon my life. He has broken down all the forces of evil and has freed me I am so grateful and thankful to Him for setting me free. I did not realise the extent of evil on this earth. I was ignorant about Satan and his evil forces. I did not realise he had me in his parlour trying to stop me from having a relationship with God but thankfully God won the battle for me over him.

1 Samuel 17:47 All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s and He will give all of you into our hands.

Having been in the darkness (evil) you are made aware of the strategies and tactics the devil uses in people’s lives. Now I can see all the evil I had touched when I confessed my sins before God and Jesus brought me into the Light with Him. The darkness could not rule over me anymore. I had made my peace with God and was determined I would never touch any kind of evil again.
When I was baptized in the assemblies of God’s people I promised God through my testimony I would always speak out about evil to others. I do not want others to be deceived by the devil as the devil had deceived me. I would speak the truth then leave it with them whether they wanted to believe what I told them was true or not. The choice is there’s to make it is not mine it is up to the individual person to choose what they wanted to do. As long as I made them aware of the evil and was obedient to God I took my hands off the situation and left them in the hands of God. I had done what God had asked of me.
You have to have the experiences before you are able to talk about the experiences you have had in life. If you have not experienced these things how will you know if they are true? It is like having cancer if you have not had the disease how are you able to talk about it to others. I have experienced first-hand what it is like to be in the devil’s parlour and I am telling you it is not a very nice place to be. I would not recommend it to anyone. Thankfully Jesus came and rescued me and now I am free from all the darkness on the earth. The Blood of Christ has set me free. I give all the honour, glory, praise and adoration to God our heavenly Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and in the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God. I cannot thank Him enough for all of His mercy, grace, love and faithfulness He has shown towards me.

  1. Thank you Avril for such a wonderful post. Hearing your story remind me of my own because I have some EXPERIENCE in how good God is. I recently wrote a post on how we must experience suffering to give clearer message about God. Because people can relate to our experiences. I look forward to reading more of your posts.
