Gotcha's Demons: Stupor, Torpor & Rancor
God has given them a spirit of stupor,

Eyes that they should not see.

And ears that they should not hear...
Romans 11:8 (NKJV)
Stupor is a dulled sensibility.
Torpor is a sluggish indifference.
Rancor is a malicious resentment.

This trio tackled my daughters and me. From their late teens into their marriages... when the three of us gathered together, peace left.

We could love each other from a distance. We could be very happy two-by-two, but all three was a different story.

In a time of prayer and questioning, asking God why we couldn't get along, three words popped into my mind: stupor, torpor and rancor. I'm thinking... WHAT? I wasn't even sure what torpor meant.

We now believe God revealed these demons.

You may think I'm writing gobbledygook. I'm smiling and wouldn't blame you one bit.

But... if you're in a hounded relationship (where bad behaviors are repetitive), ask God who and what may be there with you. Ask Him to name your problem (or demon). Next, ask Him for deliverance*... in the Name of Jesus.

"I labored, yet not I. By the grace of God, I am what I am, and do what I do' (paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 15:10). I love God's Word. As a late-in-life committed Christian with no Bible training prior to age 51, some people wonder how I'm qualified to write devotions. I wonder that, too. But God loves children and fools for Him. I am both. Ghost Writer? God.
