32 That evening after sunset the people brought to Jesus all the sick and demon-possessed. 33 The whole town gathered at the door, 34 and Jesus healed many who had various diseases. He also drove out many demons, but he would not let the demons speak because they knew who he was. 35 Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. 36 Simon and his companions went to look for him, 37 and when they found him, they exclaimed: "Everyone is looking for you!" 38 Jesus replied, "Let us go somewhere else—to the nearby villages—so I can preach there also. That is why I have come." 39 So he traveled throughout Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons.
It is Pentecost- Time to remember the birthday of the Church- and the Spirit's coming
John Calvin: There maybe two reasons why Jesus did not permit the devils to speak (vs. 34): 1) Because the time of his full revelation had not yet come; and 2) that he refused to have as witnesses and herlads to his divinity those who would soil and injure his character. [Calvin encouraged prayer in the morning, at meals, and in the evening before bed]
Prayer: Help me, Lord to see the importance of praying to you- even in the midst of my busy-ness. Give me grace to see that all time is yours and to seek you first in my day.
