Feelings of oppression..

It was a situation that happened to me in the middle of last night that caused me to publish a word about feelings of oppression. I was a slave to those same feelings for a very long time in my life. Fear, worry, depression and such were a constant in my life. You have to make the choice to tell your mind that it is yielded to the mind of Christ. You have to constantly affirm to your will that we side with the will of God for our lives. There are times when I know that nothing is wrong but the enemy will try and attack me with feelings of oppression.
Deuteronomy 26:7-8 (NLT) we cried out to the Lord, the God of our ancestors. He heard our cries and saw our hardship, toil and oppression. So the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a strong hand and powerful arm, with overwhelming terror, and with miraculous signs and wonders.
Today that same God is there for us and he will deliver us from our place of bondage and feelings of oppression.
It is in the name of Jesus that we can rebuke and nullify the feelings of discouragement, fear, uneasiness, discontentment and misery and command them all to leave us.
We are not at the mercy of trials and troubles. Instead as it is written in Psalm 121:7-8 The LORD keeps you from all harm and watches over your life. The LORD keeps watch over you as you come and go both now and forever.
Don't let people, circumstances or even the devil oppress through your what you see, hear or feel. Your feelings are not indicative of the truth that you are more than a conqueror through HIM who loves you.
The #1 remedy for oppression is praise and worship. Those feelings won't stick around when they see you giving glory and honor to God and power and goodness. For those of you who have dealt with negative feelings for a long time just know that the feelings won't flee easily at but when you hold fast to your confession of freedom and deliverance and they will definitely get the hint and get lost. Continue to fight the good fight of faith.

Be Blessed, Manie
