Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud all the way to the marrow of your bones:
“Just then a man in their synagogue who was possessed by an evil spirit cried out, ‘What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us?’”
The answer is yes.
That’s exactly what You came to do, Jesus:
stomp it out
No one else can!
Try though I might
I can’t destroy evil in my own life –
not without You.
It’s like “Whack-a-Mole” –
every time I shove down evil in one area of my life
it pops up in another – uglier than before.
I want to do right…
until it comes time to do it.
Then I blow it.
Oh, not every time…
but enough of the time
to become deeply disheartening.
So far as I can tell, I’m not alone.
Everybody battles the same dilemma.
are my only hope.
