Out of the Darkness: Spiritual Warfare and Discernment of Spirits
Sometimes we are in darkness and believe that the distressing feelings and thoughts originate from within our own souls when, in fact, they were inspired by the enemy and we merely accepted them as our own.
Only through learning about and practicing discernment of spirits can we begin to recognize the voice of the enemy of souls and how we can reject that powerful whisper with the greater power of the liberating presence and truth of God.
Do you struggle with desolation? Do you regularly wrestle with a dark pull downward that seems to own you? Does the voice of God fade into aridity as the voice of darkness expands in your heart and mind?
For about a year now I have been working on a course at the Avila Institute that even in its nascent form has been life changing for many of the participants. This year I will record the final live course that I plan to offer for some time.
He came to set the captives free. Will you be free? If you desire this freedom and want to leave the darkness and enter into His glorious light, join me for this six week adventure and you will likely discover a new path to joy and peace that you never thought possible.
