But the Pharisees said, “It is by the prince of demons that he drives out demons.” Matthew 9:34
Jesus had been going around healing the sick and casting demons out of many people. At one point some Pharisees saw this and claimed that it was by the prince of demons that Jesus was able to cast out the demons.
When people do something very amazing, others will try to explain it away. They try to find reasons why that person was able to do it and how it was done. This is to make themselves look better or to cut the person down. Often they refuse to see the truth is what had happened.
One common way that many people will claim is that a person was lucky in accomplishing something amazing. Individuals will often claim they were lucky when things go their way.
A person gets very sick and sees no end to it. Suddenly they are healed of the sickness. Some will claim the doctor or the medicine healed them, while others claim they just got lucky. God is often taken out of the picture.
This cannot be the work of Satan. Satan does not want to kick himself or his cohorts out. He came to steal, kill and destroy. He will not go around making things better. He wants to occupy every person on this earth and keep them off focus of God and destroy them.
Today people do not do a whole lot of blaming demonic powers for things happening, but they will deny God in doing things. They will claim a person or something else did it. Many believe in karma, saying that a person got what they had coming.
Regardless of the method of healing, God is always behind the scenes in the healing. God may use doctors or medicine or some other method, but He is the One doing the healing.
As a believer, you need to keep your focus on God and give Him the credit due to Him and Him alone. When a healing or some other miracle occurs, give God thanks for it. Give God thanks for the method He used to bring about the healing, whether a doctor and medicine or a miracle.
Do not just give credit to the doctor, medicine or just good luck. It was God who brought you meeting your need.
I pray today that you will know the work on God in your life; that you will give God thanks for all He does; that God will heal of sickness and the work of demons in your life; and that you will be a witness to the world of His work in your life.
