"It's only been a few weeks since the kids moved in with us and I think everything is going well. Jaden has even learned he has superpowers," Misty explained.
Jaden (4 years old) and Chelsea (3 years old) was an answer to prayer for James and Misty. They had tried to have children for years without success, so having these two beautiful children enter their home through adoption was a dream come true. As a family, James and Misty decided they would say bedtime prayers together before the kids went to sleep.
One particular morning, Misty noticed the kids didn't want to get out of bed. After further investigation, she discovered that they had awakened in the middle of the night and couldn't go back to sleep. Jaden mentioned that he had seen a monster in the bedroom the night before and was afraid because it may be hiding under his bed.
As Misty explored the conversation more, she discovered that this was not the traditional monster under the bed situation. There was a demon in Jaden's room. Just like any protective mother would react, Misty said, "My house has been prayed over and no demon is allowed to keep my kids from sleeping, so I'm going to stop this right now."
Instead of praying over the room, which she had already done before Jaden's arrival in their home, she shared with Jaden about the power of Christ that lives in him as a child of God. She said, "The next time you see that demon, you tell it to leave in Jesus' name."
So the next morning Jaden awakened with a smile as he bounced into the kitchen. Misty asked him if he had seen the demon again and sure enough he had. He said, "I told the demon what you said, "'Leave in Jesus Name,' and it left."
Months flew by as they all settled in as a family. Jaden's friend Mitch came to stay with them for a few days while his parents were out of town. Nonchalantly Jaden informed his parents the next morning that Mitch had brought some demons with him to bed.
When James and Misty asked what happened next, Jaden said, "Oh, I just told them to leave in Jesus' Name and they left."
Kids displaying God's power at it's finest.
Guess what? If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your savior, you have the same power and authority.
"Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you."
