Jesus Has Power Over Evil

A Truth to Live – The violence and pain of evil can work their way into my life; steal my joy and, at times, render me completely useless.  But even the grip of evil has no power in the presence of Jesus, the Savior. When I cling to Jesus evil has no power!

Scripture – “Two demon-possessed men coming from the tombs met Him.  They were so violent that no one could pass that way. ‘What do you want with us, Son of God?’ they shouted.  ‘Have you come here to torture us before the appointed time?’ Then he said to the demons, ‘GO’ and they left the men…”

Luke 8:28-34

Prayer – Omnipotent and Eternal Father, I realize that the impact of evil and pain has numbed my heart and deadened my desire to live for You.  I am helpless without the power of Your Son Jesus. I ask that You would command all evil to leave me, now and forever. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
