Jesus called them over and responded with an illustration. "How can Satan cast out Satan?" he asked. "A kingdom divided by civil war will collapse. Similarly, a family splintered by feuding will fall apart. And if Satan is divided and fights against himself, how can he stand? He would never survive. Let me illustrate this further. Who is powerful enough to enter the house of a strong man and plunder his goods? Only someone even stronger — someone who could tie him up and then plunder his house."
Father, I trust in Jesus' power to save from all forms of evil, sin, and bondage. I open my heart to let him reign over my emotions and desires. I open my mind so that he can purify, redeem, and control my thoughts. I open my soul so that he can rule in every area of my being. Thank you for sending your Son as my Savior, my Lord, and my Almighty King. In his name, I pray. Amen.
