This week I’m returning to my “Word of the Year” — “Cast.” I don’t see it often in my studies, but it makes it all the more meaningful when I do come cross it.
I like to imagine God the Father catching those confessions in the palm of His mighty hand and casting them into the sea. What sea? Perhaps the one most conveniently located right in front of His throne. — Beth Moore, Portraits of Devotion, pg. 495
So Jesus healed many people who were sick with various diseases, and he cast out many demons. But because the demons knew who he was, he did not allow them to speak. Mark 1:34 (NLT)
Then he appointed twelve of them and called them his apostles. They were to accompany him, and he would send them out to preach, giving them authority to cast out demons. Mark 3:14-15 (NLT)
So the disciples went out, telling everyone they met to repent of their sins and turn to God. And they cast out many demons and healed many sick people, anointing them with olive oil. Mark 6:12-13 (NLT)
