A very strong, demon possessed man caught sight of Jesus from a distance, he ran up and prostrated himself before him, crying out in a loud voice, “What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I adjure you by God, do not torment me!” (He had been saying to him, “Unclean spirit, come out of the man!”) He asked him, “What is your name?” . . . Mk_5:1-20
Within every one of us, beloved, there is some demon who in some way possesses us. It may be as innocuous as impatience or procrastination, or it may be as self-defeating as addiction to drugs, alcohol, porn, money, work or even technology. But whatever that demon may be, the very first thing we need to do is recognize it within ourselves and NAME it!
Then place Jesus before you and prostrate yourself before Him. He is our God, our Creator, our brother and our friend. And He wants nothing more than to see us healthy and whole. He will help us to cast those demons to the sea. Let them drown in the netherworld. Free us to be the beautiful children of God that we were created to be.
BELIEVE, beloved! And thus shall it be . . .
in the hands of Jesus!
