Tying up the strong man

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                              No one can enter a strong man's house          and plunder his property          without first tying up the strong man;          then indeed the house can be plundered.                   —Mark 3.27

Your worst nightmare, your most frightening demon, the most evil power that threatens you, stalking your darkness and oppressing your days, even Satan himself, is in bigger trouble than he thinks. Take joy in this most gracious of crimes: the Humble One has gone in through his terrible back door disguised in sorrow, scorn and weakness, and tied up the strong man, stripped him naked, exposing the sham of his glory, robbed him of all his treasures, emptied his powers, and plundered his house of shame. There's nothing left of him but your fears.

                    Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
