Day by Day with Martin Luther

Read: Esther 7:11-10:3; Job 1:1-7:21 1st Corinthians 12:27-14:40 Proverbs 21:23-27

“Harmless Noise”

“ And he called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every affliction.”
[Matthew 10:1]

The devil has often raised a racket in the house and has tried to scare me, but I appealed to my calling and said: I know that God has placed me into the house to be lord here. Now if you have a call that is stronger than mine and are lord here, then stay where you are. But I well know that you are not lord here and that you belong in a different place.’ And so, I fell back asleep, and let the devil be angry, for I well know that he could do nothing to me; for I am in Christ.
