Devotion – Mark 3

S – And if Satan opposes himself and is divided, he cannot stand but is finished. 27 But no one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man. Then he can plunder his house. 

Mark 3:26–27 CSB

O – Satan casting out demons is an absurd statement by the scribes.  The leader wouldn’t defeat his own team, who were doing what he sent them to do.  Jesus recognizes the enemy must be bound or immobilized before He did his works.

A – Spiritual warfare is real.  As believers, we have the authority through the name and blood of Jesus to take dominion over the works and agents of the enemy.  We should operate from a place of victory knowing that the war was won on the cross and not in our own strength and abilities.

R – Lord, I invite you to negate any works of the enemy today and I would walk humbly in the victory that comes through the name and blood of Jesus.
