What do I do when I sense sorcery afoot


Do you sense something supernatural being used against you? Are you experiencing something surreal, something too real to be true? Have you ever sung “If loving you is wrong, I don’t want to be right?” 

Anything that pleases you but displeases God is cause for concern. You may be engaged in spiritual warfare of the sorcery kind. You may have been bewitched (Galatians 3:1). 

Numbers 23 contains an excellent example of how God’s people, minding there own business, were targeted by Satan. But God intervened with a word. Hallelujah!

First, accept it as a real attack of the enemy. You are not dreaming or losing your mind. Throughout the Bible God’s people had to deal with witchcraft, sorcery, and divination (Acts 8 & 16). This tool of the enemy is used by enlisting both spiritual and secular people. It is a powerful tool because God’s people crave spiritual power. But Jesus cautioned against trusting in power. Jesus emphasized salvation as the surest source of victory (Luke 10:16-20).

Second, pray to God and communicate with all affected by this attack. When you sense someone is using sorcery against you, be still. Go to God’s Word, build your faith and pray. This is really a time for fasting and prayer. Also tell those mature enough in the Spirit to join you in prayer. If this attack is targeted toward destruction of your intimate relationships or ministry, talk to those involved about your intuition. Let them know that you are waiting on a word from the Lord. When you’re incapable of discernment about the next steps, sing order my steps Lord. 

Third, remain steadfast. In other words, keep doing right because it’s right. Do not work in concert with your emotions, especially those emotions that are contrary to God’s Word. Keep doing and being the person you were before you perceived you were under attack. When things seem too good to be true, they probably are. Stay true to what you know is God’s will and make no excuses not to do it. If you’re hurting someone whose done you no wrong and for no reason, believe me when I tell you the devil is out to destroy you.

Finally, let God’s Word lead you through the storm until God’s love delivers you. As Jekalyn Carr sings “Greater is Coming!” God is greater than any spiritual curse the devil can try to use against you. Faithfulness, persistence will be the key to your breakthrough. Our God is awesome, remember that.

  1. A motivating discussion is worth comment. I do think that you need to write more about this subject, it may
    not be a taboo matter but generally folks don’t talk
    about such topics. To the next! Kind regards!!
