I was coming home from a ministry conference when I saw a lady sitting on her suitcase in my church parking lot. I asked her if she needed help with anything only to find out that she needed help with everything. She had recently been kicked out of her house by her boyfriend and was now homeless. As I looked into her desperate eyes, I saw the enemies influence in her life. After a few minutes of talking to her, trying to help her, she informed me that she sold her soul to the devil. She was addicted to crack cocaine and an evil spirit promised that he would take the addiction away in exchange for her soul. After praying for her and casting out the spirits inside her, i was privileged to lead her in the sinners prayer.
Many times we give over out rights to the enemy. Maybe not quite like this lady that I encountered, but in other areas. Jesus came to buy us back, no matter how far off we are. Never allow Satan to own any piece of your life. Jesus ransomed us and He alone holds the title deed to our lives. We are safe in Him and made completely new and whole. I was so blessed to see a once sad woman with no hope, walk away smiling and totally free. Take that Satan!
