Lessons in Faith/ Authority/ Dominion

2019 Jan 28:

I asked God for help with my problems that I’m going through and He gave me this scripture:

Ephesians 3:7
according to the gift of the grace of God given to me by the effective working of His power.

 

2019 Jan 29:

I went to sleep praying for more wisdom and asked God to teach me more. The next morning I woke up speaking this Word from God:

“a chosen one is a vessel”

I know our body is our vessel and our body is a temple for Holy Spirit, at least those of us who are born again. We have the same Holy Spirit, the same power in us, that Jesus and His apostles had in them.

This strengthened my faith and I prayed for justice for something that day and my prayer was answered, immediately, the second I finished praying, I looked at my phone, expecting the call, the phone rang immediatly with the confirmation. My prayer was answered. I won’t share what it was here because it was personal.

I asked God for more opportunities to use my faith, so I could get stronger and He did…

 

2019 Feb 4 I had a prophetic dream:

In my dream, my oldest son woke up and said he just had a prophetic dream. He said 3 bad things were going to happen, then 2 good things. I don’t remember what the 2 good things were. I felt like this dream was important and wrote it down.

During the week after this dream I was attacked 3 times by 3 different people and my children were also each attacked in different ways. Not physical attacks but things going wrong and people treating us badly. It was intensely stressful, especially with it happening all at once. It was an obvious spiritual attack from the enemy, satan. I know now that this was something that God allowed to happen to teach me. I took authority over these things in Jesus name and they were all resolved within a week.

Maybe this was the first good thing. The second may be the experience I had next…

 

2019 feb 7 Dominion over the Animals:

In my backyard there are lots of ants. I live in australia and the ants here are merciless. They were attacking me whenever I hung out my washing. They would swarm and bite me like crazy. I would get itchy bites all over my feet. This had been going on for sometime. I tried wearing socks/pants, they would just crawl up and bite me up top. I tried putting insect repellent on my feet, they didn’t like that but didnt stop them. I tried sprinkling borax around the walkway, they didn’t care. I would have to run, hang up washing fast and run away and slap them off my feet. Lol it was ridiculous.
I said Lord why do I have to put up with this? We have dominion over the animals, right? I tried praying and they didnt stop.
Then I remembered in pastor Bruce Allen’s book (Gazing into Glory), he said he would “release the glory”, and then mosquitos would leave him alone. I tried that too, it didn’t work. I asked God why? He said “take off your shoes.” Then I immediately remembered moses having to take off his shoes when he stood on Holy Ground! So I took off my shoes and prayed for His glory on the ground and touched the ground. It worked! There are still ants and they mostly leave me alone. They sometimes walked over my feet peacefully, but never bit me again. I tested this out a few more times to be sure and not one bite! They actually moved their trails since then, to go around the area where I hang my washing. It is incredible to see!

We have been given dominion over the animals. I’ve had a few times before where I got barking dogs to calm down. Whenever I meet other people’s pets, they like me. Even pets that usually don’t like strangers. Please tell me your stories of animals. 🙂
