Cutting Is a Spiritual Battle Too

Cutting and self injury is also a spiritual battle. remember that we don't war against flesh but against spiritual powers, etc. I knew some young ladies that cut so i asked the Lord why they do it and He let me experience what they were. it began for me that I felt "everything is my fault" didn't matter if I had anything to do with the "everythings" or not. I then had this very strong urge to hurt myself because I "deserved" it. As soon as I scratched my arm, I felt a demonic presence leave. It had attained its goal. The girls I ministered to said they could feel when it was coming around them. i taught them to take their authority as God's kids and command that evil spirit to leave. They kept persevering and resisting that demon and they are free from it. Be of good cheer! Jesus has overcome! xoxoxoxoxoxoxo Jesus said to keep standing firm and resist the devil and he WILL flee from you. You can't be inhabited by a demon when you are born-again, but they can hang around and influence you if you let them. They have no power over you unless you allow it.

very much agree

i'm now at 8months cut-free, and i still have those urges at least 3-4times a week. however, i have a great support system who is very much intuned to Christ. She has helped me so much, and has taught me that I have the power in Jesus Name to control the atmosphere. These demons live in the atmosphere. For me, the biggest struggle occurs when I'm at work,so I have to learn to take these thoughts captive there. For others, it may be home, school, or anywhere else. I have learned many warning signs and now use deepbreathing and finding other things to do instead. I highly suggest getting deeply involved with reading your Bible and praying. is a great resource. it actually has a 7day devotional on cutting and becoming free from it.
