Jesus Makes Demons Flee

A Truth to Live – Evil is real. Evil spirits attach themselves to people and wreak havoc in their lives. But even demons know they have met their match when they are faced with Jesus of Nazareth.  He has the power to cast out demons.

Scripture – “In the synagogue there was a man possessed by a demon, an evil spirit. He cried out at the top of his voice, ‘Ha! What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us?  I know who you are – the Holy One of God.’ ‘Be quiet!’ Jesus said sternly. ‘Come out of him.’ …and the spirit came out without injuring the man.”  Luke 4:31-37

Prayer – Father, many times I pretend that evil is not real and that it has no impact on my life. But, today I know that You are more powerful than every demon from hell; You are mightier than evil itself. Set me free today from the chains of evil and place Your protective authority over me.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
