For some reason, many evangelicals in America have little experience exercising spiritual authority with their enemy. Stories like this one last week from Tricia Wegman can help motivate us.
We had seen amazing healings go on in Kenya and had seen
God’s power manifested in terms of casting out sickness and disease, but
we hadn’t seen deliverance necessarily. That all changed on Tuesday.

We did door-to-door evangelism all day on Tuesday and got
back to our house to eat dinner one night. I received a phone call from a
friend on my squad saying that they needed help. They were at a school
giving a Bible study and in the middle of it, some girls started
manifesting demons. The team had been there for 3 hours or so trying to
cast the demons out. So we pack ourselves up and our contact takes us
over to the school. If anything was
going through my mind, it was fear, prayer, and the Ghost Busters theme song.

We finally arrived at the dark school and walked in. I seriously could
not have prepared myself for what I saw. Samara’s whole team (read more here) was
on the ground holding down convulsing people. One demon started
screaming at us and asking why we had come there. I had never
experienced anything like that. I’m not going to go into incredible
description, because that’s not what this blog is about, but it’s pretty
much what the Bible explains. Convulsing, screaming, violent, sometimes
acting as if they are dead, blaspheming. It was disgusting.
 
We found
out that there was a lot of witchcraft going on at the school and that
several people had been involved in the occult. We just started
worshiping. This weakens the demons and gets them to start talking. They
start giving up secrets and information, which makes them easier to
cast out. At one point, one demon said, “I am out of her!!” which of
course didn’t make sense because it was still talking through her and we
just had to laugh at it. At one point, we were saying the name Jesus
and the demon said, “Stop saying that name, it is making me
uncomfortable!!” We of course asked what name it was talking about and
it kept avoiding the name Jesus because it made the demon feel very
uncomfortable. So uncomfortable, in fact, that in the name of Jesus, the
demon was cast out. Anyway, through prayer, worship, quoting the Bible,
and the Holy Spirit, the demons were cast out and the girls were free. 

Spiritual warfare is real. Demons are real. They can possess
people and can torment them. You can doubt Him all you want, but I know what I
saw and what I heard and that was that the name of Jesus Christ has
more authority and more power.

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
