Personal Narrative: My ADHD
"We began to pray against the dizziness, taking authority over any attack [from Satan] in the name of Jesus Christ. You know what happened? They got worse! The enemy, once discovered, usually doesn 't just roll over and go away without a fight. Notice that sometimes Jesus rebukes a foul spirit "in a stern voice" (see Luke 4:35). In fact, when he encounters the guy who lives out in the Gerasenes Tombs, tormented by a legion of spirits, the first rebuke by Jesus doesn 't work. He had to get more information, and really take them on (Luke 8:26-33). Now if Jesus had to get rough with these guys, don 't you suppose we will have to as well?
