The Demons Fear

Written by Julie

…two demon-possessed men met [Jesus]…so fierce that no one could pass that way. And behold, they cried out, “What have you to do with us, O Son of God? Have you come to torment us before our time?”

Matthew 8:28-29 (ESV)

The demons knew who Jesus was. They knew that their time was coming, that one day they’d all be punished. They knew and they feared.

They still do.

That’s why they’re so fierce. Why they attack you with everything they have. They know they’ll be banished to the pits of hell, and they want to take with them as many people as they can. If it’s somebody who had been a Christian, well, that’s even better!

But they fear–absolutely fear–Jesus. They fear and hate prayer and praise. It enrages them when we stand strong (with God’s help).

There’s a song called “Slam!” performed by MimeTime that talks about Satan’s attacks on Christians but how we can “slam” him (into a coffin 🙂 ). We can stop Satan, we can stand up to him, we can scare him! (Actually, it’s the God inside us that scares him, but you get the point.)

The devil and his angels know who Jesus is–and they tremble at His very name. We have the ability to call on Jesus to help us. We can be filled with His power. We don’t have to give in to Satan!

So take courage, Christian, and SLAM!!

I don’t want to go throughout the year, thinking of it as a hard, bad, grief-filled year (even if it is), and then look back and realize it was so much better than I thought, and I missed too much of it in the moment ’cause I was focused on the wrong things.

Hope doesn’t always look nice or perfect, doesn’t always make sense. It gets attacked and battered and poisoned. You may think it’s gone, dead, but then it twitches, shows up again.
