Topic: Mark 9:24-27
S. Mark 9:24-27 And after giving a [hoarse, clamoring, fear-stricken] shriek of anguish and convulsing him terribly, it (the evil spirit) came out; and the boy lay [pale and motionless] like a corpse, so that many of them said, He is dead.
But Jesus took [a strong grip of] his hand and began lifting him up, and he stood.
O. When Satan knows he's about to loose, he holds on with both fists...TIGHTLY! Satan fights the hardest to keep what he claims for himself (US and God's answers for us) just before he KNOWS that he has to give it up. Satan can not win against Jesus, the Son of God. This is the time we should know that God is about to release to us His blessings, healing and wholeness; answers to our prayers...the very things that Satan doesn't want us having....FREEDOM!
A. This scripture made me angry that satan should try to keep Jesus, the Son of the Most High God, from freeing this young man! WHO DOES HE THINK HE IS!?
BUT, THROUGH this scripture, I can understand how satan works...and gives away his 'plans'. When satan holds on with both fists to an answer to prayer, THIS IS THE CLUE TO KNOWING WE WIN! HERE is the time we STAND, TAKE AUTHORITY, and TAKE OUR BLESSING and THE ANSWER TO OUR PRAYERS...by the authority we have through JESUS!
P. Open my eyes quickly, Father, to see the 'fists of satan' and what he has his hands on. Thank You for Your Son's authority, given to me by Him, to bust the plans of satan wide open! Show me how to use that gift swiftly, with open eyes and with Your Sons full authority! I want to PUNCH SATAN'S LIGHTS OUT...in the name of Jesus!
