I’m going to get a jump on the New Year with some solid spiritual advice on how to live free in 2023. 2022 may have been a great year for you, or not. If not, then let’s fix it for next year. What I’m going to suggest may not point out the particular changes you need to make, but for most people, some of what I’ll say applies. I’m basing my advice on what I’ve witnessed in more than 1,000 virtual and in-person encounters this past year.
The most common problem causing people to seek our help is because they feel spiritual torment in some way. Some wonder if they have demons. Quite a few KNOW they have demons. Friends and loved ones have witnessed their aberrational behavior. Some have seen outright demonic manifestations. Here is what those seeking help want to know:
1) Why is it happening?
2) How do I stop it?
3) Is it me or is it demonic?
The most common issues that I encounter suggesting that emotional and physical problems are supernatural are these, in order of being more common:
1) Evil behavior in the bloodline. Much of your suffering may not be your fault. You could be suffering from what evil ancestors did decades ago or centuries before. Don’t try to solve it yourself.
2) Experimentation with the occult & New Age. A prayer partner needs to agree with you to break the spiritual connection of all occultism in your past. Usually, a Matthew 18 prayer of agreement is necessary to cut off the demons of witchcraft.
3) Sexual abuse and immorality. Self-deliverance won’t work here. Abuse brings trauma and that results in compartmentalized thinking that needs inner healing. You can’t do that on your own.
4) Drug use especially weed, meth, and psychedelics. Someone like me who deals with addictions regularly needs to help you identify why you got involved with drugs. What the drugs have done to your mind probably limits your use of will power to get free. You need mental healing and likely an exorcism.
5) Dysfunction in the family of origin. Most people who grew up in damaged homes are somewhat incapacitated from taking action on their own behalf. What was normal to you as a child may have been brutally damaging. To you it was normalized, even though it was horrendous. You need the prayers of someone who knows how to pray for wounded souls.
If one of more of these bondages has existed in your life, and you haven’t had effective prayers of healing and deliverance, 2023 may be a very bad year. But if you want to be free in 2023, get help now, even before you ring in the New Year. Our associate ministers and Do What Jesus Did deliverance team member are ready to intervene. I’m available for face-to-face ministry, virtually or in-person. Read our books to get started. Bob Larson University offers the educational courses you need to understand how the bad stuff got in your life and how to get free from it.
Let me give a warning. If you have one of the five factors I just mentioned, you likely won’t fix it by yourself. You can’t escape these bondages by determination from the inside out. You need an objective outsider, someone who is experienced in deliverance ministry to pray for you. Let us help. Don’t make next year worse than the last. Hasn’t your suffering gone on long enough? Determine that with the help of Jesus Christ, YOU WILL LIVE FREE IN 2023.
