Philippians 2:10″..at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,in heaven and on earth and under the earth,”

This tells us  that Jesus has the power in all areas of life and the universe.Not only He has the power but He himself is the power.

Therefore   those who trust in Him will be protected ,blessed , guided  and freed.

Once I was  serving in a remote area of Sri Lanka where people had a strong belief  in spirits’ power.In one of these villages,  there was a christian family where  I had regular bible study and a prayer meeting.

One day a young a girl from this village was possessed by the spirits and began   fortune telling .This became very  popular among the villagers and large crowds gathered to know  of their future.So the people  at home seen this  as a good way of income , built  a shrine in their compound for the spirits.

As time passed by, the spirits began to oppress the christian family in the village in many ways. The people  at home became sick without any reason,their financial  resources began to slide down , the spirits themselves began to appear,  in different forms in their compound, trying to intimidate them.They became very helpless but they did not want to give in to the spirits, instead they kept placing their trust in the Lord.

They knew  they were facing a spiritual battle. So we began to invoke the name of the Lord and prayed rebuking the evil spirits. As we continued to pray , within two weeks we could see the power of God.The Lord gave the victory to His children and  all of a sudden the shrine was stopped and the   oppression from the evil spirits ceased.

Jesus is victorious ,His victory  is always for you and me who trust in Him,Amen.
