Yet today.... today I was reminded of one of the most profound moments at the retreat. One of the speakers talked about how we need to break free of the chains that Satan uses to bind us & then use those VERY chains to bind him. Powerful imagery, isn't it? With that, she took out chains - plastic ones. She connected them together, each woman grabbed a piece of chain & we prayed together. Powerful, powerful stuff! You could FEEL it. Then each of us was able to take a little bit of 'chain' home with us to remind us of this freeing statement.
Lives were changed this weekend... outwardly & inwardly.
That moment had Satan scrambling! Within a few hours of breaking the chains, he began his attack. By the time I got home on Sunday night, our group of 4 had been attacked 3 times. We needed to remember that Satan was scared. We had taken away his 'power'. Then God greeted us with a rainbow. His promise that He is with us.
Break those chains... it can be done.
