    Default Intimidated by possessed/oppressed people

    I usually can discern somebody with heavier demonic influence, and I usually act around them as normal as I do with anybody. But I've met 2 persons where as soon as one comes into room I have this dry throat feeling, suddenly I can't say even simple sentences and my mind goes blank and I cant even hold a simple conversation with them.I start rumbling words etc. Usually I can talk and talk whatever pops in my mind. But with these ones I kinda have to force myself to say even" what a nice weather today". What Is That?!? I thought God's power is bigger than Devils, obviously, so why suddenly they have such power over me and I cant be who I am? Or my faith is somehow smaller than their possessed power? How are Your experience with this?

    Just a little something to know, but what you focus most on is what you give power to. Instead of focusing on what you see focus on Truth, God is greater than any challenge, but for you to really walk in that truth, your perspective needs to change.

    I have no particular experience with that kind of situation, though I've had dreams somewhat similar. May I suggest that you start by simply saying, "Jesus!"

    Sounds like you watch too much Hollywood garbage.

    God does not want us to be intimidated by anything demonic. When you are, you are inadvertently yielding power or reverence to it. You need not be rattled by such entities; "Greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world" (1 John 4:4). No need to be intimidated by something you don't respect. You might also question your judgement, maybe these 2 people aren't in fact demonically possessed. How would you know?
