The first necklace I made for myself last year, which I still wear almost everyday is stamped with the word VICTORIOUS on it. At first when I made it and wore it around for months, I don’t think I knew deep down what it truly meant to be victorious.
Don’t get me wrong, I felt victorious on most days as someone who survived childhood trauma, depression + suicide attempts, multiple near death situations, autoimmune disease, mold + breast implant illness, and all of the other 5 million crazy things life threw at me BUT I was still struggling with defeat, fear, and anxiety more than ever, even AFTER witnessing countless miracles and seeing God’s mighty hand move in my life.
No matter what I did, I couldn’t pick myself up. Day in and day out, I felt tormented and my soul was crying out for help. Out of desperation, I opened up my bible every morning, clinging onto His Word and declaring His truth and promises over me.
Fast forward, it was a random night and I had a very vivid dream. In my dream, I was face to face with Satan and I was trembling uncontrollably and violently with fear. I tried to turn around to call for backup (maybe find someone more “spiritual” than me) but as I was turning around, the devil took my vision. I couldn’t see a thing and everything went black.
In that moment of darkness and fear, I started declaring and yelling on top of my lungs “I am God’s child and there is NOTHING you can do to me!!” I yelled “JESUS, JESUSS, JESUSSS!!!” and just like that, my vision came back and Satan was gone. COMPLETELY VANISHED.
I woke up that morning and my life was never the same. It was through that dream that God empowered me and reminded me that I CAN walk with boldness and confidence and not live my life constantly in fear and defeat.
If this is you, my prayer is that you would be reminded of WHO YOU ARE in Christ. It’s time for us to RISE UP and take back what’s rightfully ours. If the enemy has robbed you of your peace, your passions, your joy, your purpose and fed you LIES like you’re not good enough, you’re not worthy, it needs to stop TODAY. You are loved. You are worthy. You are VICTORIOUS.
Praying and rooting for you,
