Derek Prince How to Be Delivered
My description of demons is persons without bodies. It’s very important to realize you are dealing with a person. In the early years of my ministry I suffered from intense depression. It would come over me and rest upon me like a dark cloud, shut me in, keep me from communicating, and I struggled with it. I did everything. I prayed, I fasted, I reckoned myself dead, I knew the Scriptures. And the more I prayed and fasted, the worse it got. I had no remedy and one day I was reading Isaiah 61 and it said, “In place of the spirit of heaviness, the garment of praise.” The Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, “That’s your problem. A spirit of heaviness, of depression.” And when I knew I was dealing with a person, and not myself—you see I’d been blaming myself for all of this. When I discovered it was another person I was 80 percent to victory. And actually I understood, by revelation, that it was a familiar spirit; that is a spirit that follows a family up. I realized that the same spirit had affected my father for many years. So all I needed was one other Scripture. Let me share it with you. Joel 2:32: ” And it shall come to pass, That whoever calls on the name of the Lord Shall be delivered. I called on the name of Jesus and I was delivered. – Derek Prince
