Jesus gave me authority over the spirits that were oppressing her but He did not give me authority over her will. I began praying for her while she was still across the crowded floor. I perceived a bag called “rejection”, another, “hurt”. A third bag was “self-loathing”. I saw also “physical pain” and “abuse”. Doubt, depression, and lack of forgiveness formed a seemingly invisible force field over every bag.
As Anna entered my space, the Holy Spirit in me pushed me aside and I heard these words come out of my mouth: “My dear friend, Anna, you can be free from all of the excess baggage that you are carrying through life". To my surprise and delight, she responded: “Really, how?” Cautiously I asked her if she really wanted that. She said, “Yes!”
We were in a department store so I whisked her into the ladies fitting room where we could be alone. I told her that we have to pray. I asked her what was in those bags. One by one, she mentioned all of the issues that the Lord had shown me: rejection, hurt, self-loathing, physical pain and abuse. One by one we brought those things to Jesus. We rebuked all evil spirits involved in the mighty Name of Jesus.
Through giddy tears, she exclaimed: “I feel so light that I think that I just might float up to heaven!” She walked out of the fitting room free to be the woman that God had created her to be. As for me, I was singing His praises and dancing through the aisles!
