Pest Control


Matthew 12:43-45
New International Version (NIV)

43 “When an impure spirit comes out of a person, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. 44 Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order. 45 Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation.”


The Pest

He came into my house today
He laughed and made big fun of me
He swaggered and he swayed
And then he said, “This is how it’s gonna be!”

You asked me in today, my friend
And now I’m here to stay
Now your house you can’t defend
Or send me on my way

I’ll curl up here around your head
And grip your mind so tight
Every thought you’ll have, you’ll come to dread
Struggle though you might

I’ll fill the air with thoughts so dark
I’ll drain your very soul
Things will come to seem so stark
You’ll slowly lose control

The day will seem an endless chore
Whatever your hands might touch
Your dreams composed of so much gore
You’ll wish for death and such

And if by chance this house you clean
And manage somehow to drive me off
I’ll come back seven times as mean
Full of anger and then I’ll scoff

You’ll never get me out of here!
It’s your sin that is to blame
Unless, of course, I should hear
“Get out, in Jesus’ name!”

Give us eyes that see and ears that hear that we might know what is around us. We struggle with illnesses, with anxieties, with all manner of distress in this dark world. You wait only for us to ask for help. We are asking, Father, for Your strong hand to guide and protect us from the evil that awaits.
Thank You for sending Jesus. Thank You for the power in His name.
