Hello, my name is Alicia Lutz. I would like to share a little bit about myself and hopefully explain the purpose of this blog.
When I was young my family would go to the Ozark Mountains in the summertime. We would take the camper and boat and head off for a 3 month vacation. My parents were both teachers and in the late 60’s school was out for 3 full months and didn’t start again until after Labor Day.
The Ozarks is my favorite place to go, I even prefer it to a cruise or a far away place such as Cancun or Hawaii. The Ozark Mountains are breathe taking.
We were Methodist and as a Methodist we camped alot with many of the families in the church. While our parents were visiting all of the kids would go off to explore. I loved nature because I always felt close to God there. I didn’t worship the trees or anything like that, but I just had a sense that He was real and always with me. Romans 1:19 (NASB) says, …that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. (This is why I have always believed there was a God).
I loved looking up at the stars at night. They were so bright away from the city lights. Psalm 19:1 says, The heavens are telling of the glory of God; and their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.
I only knew about Him at that time, because of my LACK of knowledge about Him and having no relationship with Him, I lived my as though there wasn’t a God.
I didn’t know that He really cared to be involved with my life. It wasn’t until I was 28 years old that I actually had an encounter with Him. There were some things that happened that led up to my encounter. It was 4:00 in the morning when I began my journey with Him.
Since that morning in Nov. of 1987 I have been running after Him with my WHOLE heart. He saved me completely and began to teach me about spiritual warfare; something that the Methodist church I grew up in never said anything about.
They never even mentioned that there was a devil. I thought the devil was just a made up character; a myth; and that halloween was like Christmas; just a holiday to be celebrated. It never occurred to me that the reason I was drawn to witchcraft and spells and séances was because of my LACK of knowledge about the Truth and that I didn’t understand that there were two god’s; the god of this world and the Living God Who created him.
As kids we played with the Ouija board and when we asked it a question it always gave an evil answer. We did séances, and levitation for the fun and excitement of it, (and one day it really worked; 6 of the kids on the block picked my 16 year old brother up with two fingers and he was light as a feather and the neighbors who’s house we did it in front of had a yard FULL of dead black birds the next day…It was very weird.) It still didn’t click with me yet that we were dealing with demonic entities.
When God began to teach me about spiritual warfare and that ALL of the Power was in the name of Jesus, by His Holy Spirit my thought processes began to change as I asked Jesus to change me, I would read His word everyday and have continued to read every morning since 1987.
In 1999 I was part of a planning committee for our very first Women’s Conference but I felt out of place. I went and sat against the wall and said, “Lord, I don’t feel like I belong here” He said, “Well, YOU’RE A DEBORAH IN THE BODY OF CHRIST!” Then He began to teach me that what He had revealed to me in His Word applies to the call He placed on my life.
It is to teach the Body of Christ how to properly fight the enemy with God’s Word and the importance of Worship in spiritual warfare
