Glory Be To God He Came TonHimself.

Psalm 18:17 "He delivered me from my strong enemy and from those who hate me and abhorred me for they were too strong for me" and because he came to himself he wanted restoration. There were forces he knew he had to be delivered from.

It was these forces that forced him to request his portion etc. A demonic force is a demonic compulsion to do what you will not really love to do. This force forced him to eat swine food. During this time, if asked how things are he was saying all is well, but one day he recovered his sences and knew this is not normal.

But he came to himself. When you ask someone, what is the problem, they say no problem. But there are problems, plenty of them. You know all is not well.

For this man it is not ordinary. The situation

-: That says marry but no children is not normal.

-: That says no partner at 45 yrs is not normal.

-: For 28 yrs old to be bedwetting

-: You labour before u eat. Did not see work.

-: It is not ordinary when luck is never on your side.

-: When what is simple for others is always difficult for you.

- : When all you think about is how to overshadow your neighbours.

-: When you always wish evil for your fellow men.

-: When your heart is filled with evil thoughts to others.

-: When a spirit drives you to be uncontrollable both to superiors and higher authority.

-: When you join secret societies to molest others, or secret bodies

Today Someone Here Will Come To Himself / Herself

1. The bible says he realized he had sinned. Why this, Sin is a reproach and was behind all his problem. Several things about your sins,

-: Do not think u are righteous before God.

-: Look at your lineage and blood covenants that gave birth to you. If your family are slave traders you are likely to be in bondage

Make up your mind today,

When he came to himself, said I will arise go to my father and begged for forgiveness.

If you are not willing no anointing can deliver you. If you are willing you will eat the good of the land. But you must be willing. The power of God is here to do that which He can do.

What ever the enemy has swallowed they will vomit them today.

When he came to himself did that which he can do, no more. He restituted. You do your own bit, God will do His own.
