by Gail RamseCan You Really
How can I get free from
rebellion? I keep praying to be free, but then I just turn around and do evil things.
I am eight years old. What is wrong with me!
Your desperate daughter, Lacey
You are not a rebel. You are dearly loved and accepted child of God.
You are precious in His sight!
Satan has deceived you, Lacey, into believing that you are worthless
and evil. These are lies.
If you see yourself as the helpless victim of Satan and his schemes,
you will continue to live like his victim and remain in bondage to his lies. But if you
see yourself as the loved and accepted child of God that you really are, you will live
like a child of God.
Read the following description of yourself ALOUD every day until the
attacks stop. This is who you really are:
I (Lacey) am a child of God
(John 1:12). I am chosen of God,
holy and dearly loved (Colossians 3:12, 1 Thessalonians 1:4).
I am a child of light and not of darkness (1 Thessalonians 5:5).
I am Christs friend (John 15:15).
I am a temple, a dwelling place, for God. His Spirit and His life live
in me (1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19).
I am a new person. My past is forgiven and everything is new (2

I am an enemy of the devil (1 Peter 5:8)
..and, since I am in
Christ, by the grace of God
I am now acceptable to God (justified) and completely forgiven. I live
at peace with Him (Romans 5:1).
The sinful person I used to be died with Christ, and sin no longer
rules my life (Romans 6:1-6).
I am free from the punishment (condemnation) my sin deserves (Romans
I was chosen by God to be adopted as His child (Eph. 1:5).
I have been given a spirit of power, love, and self-control (2 Timothy
Lacey, your heavenly Father, (our only true father!) promises that if
you submit to God and resist the devil, that the devil WILL FLEE from you! (James 4:7)
God cant lie, and the devil has NO CHOICE but to run away when
you choose to obey your Abba Father, (Your true Daddy who loves you with all of His
You are a very brave girl to admit that you are struggling so hard. I
know that you are going to be set free completely as you continue to put Gods
promises into your heart and mouth. Tell the devil to take a hike!
You are FREE! And you are PRECIOUS to God!
