Jesus withdrew toward the sea with his disciples. A large number of people followed from Galilee and from Judea. Hearing what he was doing, a large number of people came to him also from Jerusalem, from Idumea, from beyond the Jordan, and from the neighborhood of Tyre and Sidon. He told his disciples to have a boat ready for him because of the crowd, so that they would not crush him. He had cured many and, as a result, those who had diseases were pressing upon him to touch him. And whenever unclean spirits saw him they would fall down before him and shout, “You are the Son of God.” He warned them sternly not to make him known.
Demons knew who Jesus was. The people came because they knew He was curing people, but they did not know He was the Messiah. But the demons did. Do you know who He is? Open your heart and you will.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for coming into my heart. Help me to always recognize you in others. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
In God I trust; I shall not fear.
