I'm curious of the thoughts of those here as to what scope a believer can interact, if you will, with demons. I am aware we can never be possessed. Since I don't believe in "ghosts" as portrayed on these ghost hunter shows, but do believe any such sighting to be demonic in nature, there have been a handful of events I have witnessed in our home since buying it. The first was the night we moved in. I was woken by what sounded like children laughing above us in the attic. I laid there with my eyes open trying to hear it again. I wasn't going to wake my wife...but after a few minutes she asked me if I heard children laughing. It was the middle if the night, and no children lived by us. The most recent happened Saturday night. My wife and kids were sleepiing when I took our baby up to her crib. I kept the lights off in the room, placed her in, rocked her a little when a shadow moved across the wall as if someone walked past the door (there was a light on outside the room). I thought nothing of it as I was under the impression my wife or other kids walked by to go to the bathroom. When I didn't hear anyone in the bathroom I checked and both kids were still in bed sound asleep and my wife was still sleeping on the couch. Concerned, I checked out the rest of the house just in case an intruder was inside. When I didn't find anyone I tried to recreate the shadow movement by walking back and forth in front of the door. I successfully recreated the same shadow on the crib and wall. I have no idea what / who could have caused it, sparking my question about what level of influence to demonic forces are we subjected to along with the what and why questions. Why would God allow it and for what purpose? What purpose would a demon have in a believers home? Kind of confused about this whole thing.
