Acts 13:9 Then Saul, who was also called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, looked straight at Elymas and said, 10 "You are a child of the devil and enemy of everything that is right! You are full of all kinds of deceit and trickery. Will you never stop perverting the right ways of the Lord? Now the hand of the Lord is against you. You are going to be blind for a time, not even able to see the light of the sun," Immediately mist and darkness came over him, and he groped about seeking someone to lead him by the hand, 12 When the proconsul saw what happened, he believed, for he was amazed at the teaching about the Lord.
Now Paul who was once Saul knew how to deal with the likes of him, the child of the devil, because he was once just like him. He knew what it would take to break persecution. It takes humbling someone to the point where they become so dependent on others that they have to be led by hand to get around. It takes breaking and rebuilding.
God will use us for his purpose based on what experience we have been through in life. He will teach us how to deal with current situations based on the past.
Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever....
1 John 4:4 He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
Father God, We come to you in the name of Jesus Christ. We bind persecution in America and around the world. We bind the eyes of the devil's child. We bind the hands of the devil's child. We bind the mind of the devil's child. We do all of this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior!
