The Third Strand

I was in the bedroom, just cleaning up a bit.  It pushed me.  I didn’t fall, but I was definitely caught off guard – lost my balance even.  I didn’t see anything there – I was alone.  Or was I?  Not then, not now.  I continued cleaning up, still a little rattled at what had just occurred.  It pushed me again.  This time a little harder with a little more force.  “What are you doing?  Leave me alone!”  I almost fell to the floor.  Darkness.  Heaviness.  Evil.  Pure evil.  I left the bedroom.  I was astounded at my experience, baffled.  My friend came over for a visit.  She sat waiting on the couch while I returned to the bedroom for a moment.   An all out attack.  It came at me FULL FORCE.  It pulled my feet right out from under me.  I was hanging – in mid air – upside down.  My head was almost touching the floor.  I couldn’t move, I couldn’t fight back.  Not from this position.  I was completely helpless.  “Scream, call out for help”, I thought.  SHE will hear you and help.  I started to call out… but only for a second.  It took my voice away.  I couldn’t even scream for help.  But she heard me… for that split second, she heard me.  She came running.  Walking in to find my predicament.  She fought for me – I couldn’t fight – so she fought for me!!  Calling on the Almighty Name of JESUS…. HE fought for me. 

I have another friend, the three of us have been woven together, by the hand of our Mighty Maker.  Woven together for such a time as THIS!!  We are each one of three strands.  Together we have the power of 3.  We can fight anything as long as we are together (with Christ in the center)!  Ecclesiastes 4:12 says “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.  A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”  The power of 3… The FATHER, the SON, the, HOLY SPIRIT.  This cord won’t be broken!  Darkness can never live where there is light!!!

Do you have the power of THREE?? 

(This was actually a dream I had several nights ago…)

  1. Incredible post! The first lines of "knocked me, but didn't fall" made me see something that many of us deal with--we are knocked about--but most of the time we don't actually "FALL". The falling is what is determintal to our spiritual walk. LORD keep us from falling--BOND us even tighter in YOUR name!!!

    By the way---YOU ARE THE WINNER OF THE BOOK!!!!!
