Joshua 1:9b Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.
We do not know the what, when, where, or even how of these demons, but we do know that Jesus cast them out completely. Mary Magdalene is the first person to encounter the risen Christ, the first to “go and tell” others the Good News of Jesus’s Resurrection. We know her not as Mary the tormented but as Mary Magdalene, literally one who comes from a very strong and lofty place.
Mary Magdalene is the ultimate Joshua 1:9 story. Be strong and courageous, do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
MOVING FORWARD: Are you wrestling with demons? Ask for Jesus's help in casting them out.
