“When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, but finds none. Then it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when it comes, it finds the house empty, swept, and put in order. Then it goes and brings with it seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they enter and dwell there, and the last state of that person is worse than the first. So also will it be with this evil generation.” ~ Matthew 12:43-45 (ESV)
Lord, You have washed me clean of my sins as Jesus cast demons out during His ministry on earth. Yet as Jesus warned of the return of demons greater in number and evil, sin can once again inhabit my heart and soul. Continually cleanse my heart and guide me by the Holy Spirit to walk in Your ways. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
