God wants to bless us when our heart is ready. Our hearts can become more ready when we become more vulnerable with others.

Mark 5:2 Jesus casting out demons from possessed man.

1) What we see is a result of what we don’t see. The physical world is a manifestation of the spiritual world.

  • Eph. 6:12 Our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against…spiritual forces of evil

  • Fix our eyes on what is unseen

2) In darkness, spirits can seem powerful.

  • Sometimes you may not even realize spirts have influence and power over you

3) When spirits are brought into the light, they actually have no power over us.

  • The demon possessed man was told by the spirits that they had power over him, but when

    Jesus shows up the spirits fled and were afraid

  • Personal story about marriage reconciliation through the power of the Holy Spirit after

    confessing past spiritual demons

2 Corinthians 12 My grace is sufficient for you…When I am weak, then I am strong.

  • The way we win in life as believers, is not by proving to others that we are good, it is by

    repenting our weakness - getting junk out of darkness and into light - and allowing Jesus to

    abolish our demons. Admit you are weak and God will be able to make to strong.
