Dealing with deliverance!
Scripture reading for March 18: Luke 11, Psalm 55, Proverbs 24
Key Scriptures: Luke 11:24-27 “When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and finding none it says, I will return to my house from which I came. And when it comes, it finds the house swept and put in order. Then it goes and brings seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they enter and dwell there. And the last state of that person is worse than the first.”
Jesus instructed His disciples concerning casting out of evil spirits. He told them that they had the power in His Name to cast them out of an individuals. He told them that the evil spirit would seek another home in someone else, but would ultimately try to return. If the delivered person failed to fill his ‘house’ with the Holy Spirit, the evil spirit would return and find other even worse spirits and that man would be in worse bondage than before.
Faith Confession: Lord, give me wisdom to help those bound by evil spirits to find deliverance in Jesus’ Name and to fill their ‘house’ with Your Holy Spirit.
Proverbs 24:3-4 “By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
