For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Romans 8: 38, 39
We wrestle with “principalities and powers” (We all have our personal demons), not with people.
It has taken me a while to understand that the bad clients I had been working with are like evil spirits and the devil attacking me. They are all caught up in the mass deception that the devil is so good at ensnaring us in. They have attacked me in the past because I love the Lord and the devil is trying to make me angry, resentful, untrusting, envious, and afraid. It is all poison.
Jesus separates us and shields us from these spirits if we ask Him. He loves us and protects us, no matter what.
