Idolatry and Bondage

The evil spirits that reside in people are more serious than those we watch in horror movies. These evil spirits are more subtle, enticing and manipulative and disguise themselves with good intentions. Remember that Lucifer was once an angel of light, before falling into sin.

The devil is the master of deceit and lies. Evil spirits attempt to separate us from the love of God. They are always linked to the idols of the world, to make us become slaves of these idols, which seek to take the place of God. They make us dialogue with the Devil, and cheat us into believing that in the end, God does not love us, so we think that it’s better to take matters into our own hands and conduct ourselves as God in our own lives.

However, the good news is that man has a strong ally in the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit has the power to dispel and cast off these
evil spirits. Jesus Christ easily ordered the evil spirits to come out. He can do so with us but only if we allow him. A prayer to the Lord, even just for the plea to cast off these evil spirits in our lives will suffice for the Holy Spirit to start acting. There is no doubt that God will triumph over evil. The outcome is clear, but we have to consciously choose God over the idols!

Let us reflect on our own lives today, and consider what kind of idolatry enslaves us.
