Luke 8:26-39

“As soon as he saw Jesus, he shrieked and fell down in front of him. Then he screamed, ‘Why are you interfering with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? Please, I beg you, don’t torture me!’” v.28

The demons knew exactly who Jesus was and were fearful of the power He had over them.  When He spoke they listened and were obedient.  It’s sounds kind of weird to say and even think about, “That demons would obey Christ”,  but it’s true, Jesus has the ultimate authority!  At His command, things happen.  In this passage, the demons left a man and went into a herd of pigs at the command of Christ.  He has the power to do amazing things, do you have the faith to see them happen?

Today, may we go in His power and not our own.  May we listen to His voice and not our own.  May we see people the way He see’s them, not the way the world see’s them.  May we love others the way He loves us.  May we be people that are completely devoted and surrendered to Him.

    Thanks for the updates! So good to see you all!!
    This is my prayer for you today

    1 Peter 4:10-11 :

    10As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
    11Whoever speaks, is to do so as one who is speaking the utterances of God; whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

    As a follower of Christ, I spend a good deal of time trying not to be proud. As a parent though, I find it very difficult not to be proud of these children as they go out an minister to others. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
