  1. I had to pause when he shared his fight, and I almost want to cry because you will not hear a lot of Pastors just be that honest, and the fact that he did shows how genuine he is. I love listening to you Pastor Craig and you inspire me as a leader over the Youth Ministry God has appointed me in. Thank you for what you do.

  2. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I cannot tell you the freedom I feel right now. I have been struggling so much. This series has blessed me tremendously. I am so incredibly grateful.

  3. Wow…preach it! One of the MOST powerful sermons I've heard in a LONG time. Armor of God is the only way we can prepare and stand in this battle for our soul! Also refreshing differentiation about condemnation vs conviction. Dont give satan more credit than he is due. We are not what we do or did, but who He creates us to be. While we may not be at fault for all of our sin, we are responsible for correcting it once it is revealed to us….not in our strength alone, but by His power and might, for Whom NO THING IS IMPOSSIBLE! Hallelujah and Amen! In the name of Christ!

  4. I experienced God going before me when I had a pre-school in Swaziland. An old man used to pass my school and shout and curse me and my school. It was very scary for me and the children. He had a long, dirty beard, and was stooped and would wave his stick at us and shout in siSwati. When I tried to show love by giving him a pawpaw from the tree in our grounds, he got even more aggressive. I prayed about it and the Lord revealed he had an evil spirit and led me to confront him. I was TERRIFIED! I had seen people being delivered from evil spirits and was so scared he would writhe, scream and froth at the moth, I asked the Lord not to let the spirit leave him in a violent way. The next day he came down the hill shouting, I walked out of the school gate with all the children's eyes on me. Shaking like a leaf, I walked right up to him, and said" Ï'm not afraid of you. I am a child of God and I and my school belong to Him. Every time you abuse us, you abuse Him". The man quietly raised both hands to cover his face, and then as his hands slid down, he just quietly said in perfect English (which I know he couldn't speak) "you are just too clever for me". With those quiet words the spirit left him. I didn't realize this until the next day, when he came down the hill, walking upright, no beard, no walking stick, and looking 20 years younger. I greeted him in siSwati "Sawubona Mkhulu" ….Hello Grandfather (a term of respect) and he greeted me back "Sawubona Ndodakazi yami" Hello my daughter. From that day on, we never discussed what had happened, but we became friends for the duration of my time in Swaziland. God not only answers our prayers, but does it in a specific way, to His glory.
