Spirit of Grief Rises to Take the Fight Out of God's People

The spirit of grief has infected many believers. Here is what you can do about it.
The spirit of grief has infected many believers. Here is what you can do about it. (Lightstock )

I received a word from the Lord for the body of Christ: 

The enemy has attacked the body of Christ with a spirit of grief. A spirit of grief can gain an inroad, not just after the death of a loved one, but also from: 

  • A series of disappointments
  • Your heart broken repeatedly
  • The death of a dream from life taking an unexpected direction
  • A shattered relationship
  • Your heart being battered and bruised from repeated attacks from the enemy
  • Anguish over long-term problems
  • A myriad of other discouraging, devastating and damaging life events 

The enemy attacks with a spirit of grief in order to take the fight out of us. If he can steal our joy, he can steal our fight. If this is you, get alone with God today and:  

1. Bind the spirit of grief, commanding it to loose its hold from you

2. Ask the Lord to reach His healing hand into your spiritual heart and perform spiritual heart surgery—healing open wounds, smoothing over scar tissue, softening the hardened places of your heart, tearing down walls that you have built to protect yourself from future hurts, extracting any bitterness that is in your heart

3. Ask God to restore the joy of your salvation and give you joy unspeakable! 

"He heals the broken in heart, and binds up their wounds" (Psalm 147:3, MEV).
