My Testimony of God’s Protection
My focus on prayer started when God spoke to me audibly in 2009 and said: “If I didn’t make you wait, you wouldn’t have prayed. Make sure that you pray from now on!”
Since then God has protected me by sending dreams, people, revealing His word, and other miraculous interventions. God continues to teach me and my family through dreams as well, in one particular dream my sister saw our family being attacked by a demon and the dream instructed her to remove it with honey. The dream was a signal that the love and kindness of Christ Jesus was needed to quiet the gossipers. In addition to that, I have had dreams warning me about betrayals, what to study on tests, men with bad motivations for me, and to pray against demonic assignments.

PRAYER is VITAL! Especially praying the word of the Lord! It helps you to know the promises of God when Satan comes and tells you that horrible things will happen and God won’t be there to protect you. Ultimately, God wants to speak to you through any biblical avenue (dreams, bible, preachers, etc.) to remind you that He will never leave your side and you have spiritual authority & you’re powerful when you pray.
God is with you every where you go. Bible verses about protection confirm that God will not let the enemy touch you. If you follow his advice for a good life you can avoid the enemies’ schemes. Submitting your mind to be renewed from lust, greed, anger, bitterness, pride, etc. will help you to be strong against the enemies’ attacks.
Satan wants you to fear and do things from the pain in your heart. Or, he hopes to get others to do it to you. Pray against it. Believe that God wants to help you avoid difficult situations that the enemy wants to use to steal your faith.
