““The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your brothers—it is to him you shall listen—” (Deuteronomy 18:15)
“And they went into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath he entered the synagogue and was teaching. And they were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one who had authority, and not as the scribes. And immediately there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit. And he cried out, “What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God.”” (Mark 1:21–25)
Jesus has already encountered Satan in the wilderness, right after his baptism. And, now, as He begins his public ministry, the demonic appears again. What is interesting here is that the demons know who Jesus is and announce His presence as the Holy One of God. To be in the presence of holiness is intolerable to Satan.

Show your grace to Neveah this day, as she goes about the callings you have given to her. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Almighty God, You know we live in the midst of so many dangers that in our frailty we cannot stand upright.
