When Jesus came to the territory of the Gadarenes, two demoniacs who were coming from the tombs met him. They were so savage that no one could travel by that road. They cried out, “What have you to do with us, Son of God? Have you come here to torment us before the appointed time?” Some distance away a herd of many swine was feeding. The demons pleaded with him, “If you drive us out, send us into the herd of swine.” And he said to them, “Go then!” They came out and entered the swine, and the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea where they drowned. The swineherds ran away, and when they came to the town they reported everything, including what had happened to the demoniacs. Thereupon the whole town came out to meet Jesus, and when they saw him they begged him to leave their district.
Jesus can command demons to leave and they will. When you are plagued with the demons in your life, do you go to Him? He will cleanse you and heal you. Run to Him as these two did and you will be healed.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for driving the demons from my life. You saved me from damnation in this life and the next. In Jesus’ holy name I praise you and give you thanks, Amen.
The Lord hears the cry of the poor.
