Invisible Battleground

So I'm in England Manchester to be precise at the moment. In south America where I have been living recently we talk about spiritual stuff all the time the good and the bad. The demonic is a lot more normal over there and visible.  Today as I was walking to church I had quite a revelation which seems quite elementary and something that I already knew I would talk about all the time.  I have been praying about spiritual stuff with those closest to me.   I was having a struggle with someone this morning I was becoming very angry towards them and I couldn't work out why and then it dawned in me. Even though I was getting confused in who I was getting angry at. Then the holy spirit said to me your not fighting against flesh and blood your fighting against principalities and powers.  So you mustn't be angry with them you need to be angry at the enemy.  Like Jesus said they no not what they do!  Like the enemy has blinded them.  So here in Europe there is a huge very powerful spiritual background in England it is very strong like invisible walls that have been built up between ourselves and the enemy.  As no one talks about it here I have to keep reminding myself over and over that even though I can't see it that we are in a very present real spiritual battle!!!

Manchester!!!!

So here I am in my home town Manchester and actually enjoying being here for a change!  I have now been here for a month and the last month has gone quite quickly even though I haven't actually been doing much.  Mainly due to the fact that I have been on stand by waiting to see if I would be going to Latvia and Italy or not.  However in the end nor my other team member or my leader from Zambia were able to get their visas.  So I am still here and it doesn't look like I will be going anywhere any time soon.  I think what makes me so content to be here and so relaxed is the fact that I know without a shadow of a doubt God was the one who got me here.  It wasn't a mistake.  
In the last month I have been able to spend some long awaited time with my family and had some great conversations with them. I have also been able to reconnect on a deeper level with a church I have been going to on and off when ever I have been in town.  It is amazing the way God answers all our prayers. Two in particular that I believe he is in the process of answering are the fact I haven't really had a home church here in England. I have been involved in many churches but not one that I could say this is my home church and one that I would always go back to and who know what I am doing. All the other churches that I have been connected with I go back to but not very often. The difference with Kings in Manchester is that my parents house from now on will be my base as I am not part of the team in London any more.
The second thing that God has put his finger on and is doing something about it is the debt I have accumulated  over the years which I have been pressing into God about.  Just recently I have had some people offer to lend me the money to pay it off so I don't have to be paying the interest and then with me being in Manchester I am  taking advantage of the time I am here and looking for some work, it looks like I might be able to pay it off this time.  I believe he is going to be answering some other prayers things I've had pending for quite a few years and it looks like this is the year!!!!
