Luke 11: 14-20
"And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the people wandered. But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the chief of the devils. And others, tempting him, sought him a sign from heaven. But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth. If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? Because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub. And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore shall they be your judges. But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you."
Jesus is willing to cast out all the evil things in our lives, but yet we have the tendency to look to evil men to help us. I've often wondered why people always seem to run to people who are trying to hurt them for help! I have seen it over and over again where we go to someone for help, and the person turns around and harm us instead. Let us listen to the wisdom of Jesus. A house that is divided cannot stand but will self-destruct. Persons who have divided affections for us will eventually turn against us and destroy us and the relationship. Many of us are in self-destructive relationships with others and do not even know it. We put our full trust in others only to have the relationship blow up in our very faces, without us even suspecting anything. With Jesus, we can be assured that He will NEVER be against us. He will always have our best interests at heart.
