How God Can Use Your Story to Break Demonic Chains

Tammy Hotsenpiller (Tammy Hotsenpiller Facebook page)

When home alone, she turned on lights. She turned up the TV. But why?

Throughout most of her life, Tammy Hotsenpiller struggled with fear. As she explored her past, filtered through her knowledge of Scripture, she realized, "God has not given us the spirit of fear. But we know that it is an actual spirit that we are really almost struggling with, a demonic spirit, I believe."

Hotsenpiller, co-founder and co-senior pastor of Influence Church in Anaheim, California, knows she's not alone in this struggle. And she realized the story of how God helped her break free could help others find the deliverance they seek.

That's why Hotsenpiller, who is also a life coach, founded Story Club, a safe place on the internet for individuals to talk about the "pain points" of their life journey.

"On social media, we all feel like we need to talk about this perfect little world we pretend to live in. But that's not truth," Hotsenpiller told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of "Greenelines" on the Charisma Podcast Network. "The truth is that there is pain to our stories. There is hurt, shame and embarrassment. But do you know that those are the very things that God can use to not only set you free, but others too?

"I believe in using your story to pay it forward to the next generation for freedom, for purpose. It doesn't matter if it's fear or jealousy or entitlement or anger or anxiety. We can begin to identify what your story is. Your vulnerability and honesty will help other develop a sense of connection that will help them on a path to freedom."
