Boo!

Luke 4:35

  “But Jesus rebuked him, saying, ‘Be quiet, and come out of him!’ And when the demon had thrown him down in their midst, it came out of him, and did not hurt him.”

The first time I experienced seeing a demon, I experienced fear-extreme fear. Demons bring with them fear that is one reason that we are told that we were not given a “spirit” of fear. I have seen several demons since that first night and each time, the fear that accompanied them dissolved around me because of Who it is that lives in me. What I noticed, however was that there was always underlying trepidation and angst if I thought about casting out demons. I believe now that this feeling was caused by what I allowed my eyes to see and ears to hear from our society. I believe that I had just seen too many scary movies wherein the demons were very scary, and the priests were shaking in their shoes! The Lord, however highlighted our study verse today in order to comfort my heart. This demon, in the presence of Jesus and at the command of Jesus, came out of the man and did not hurt the man when he did. This is so reassuring of God! Therefore, if you find yourself either with demonic activity in your life or if you are led to cast the demonic out of someone, then rest in the knowledge that not only will the demon flee but that it will not hurt its victim when it does.
