Do you ever find yourself in a situation where you don’t know what to do, where to go to find an answer for your issue? It can be a situation at work, with your spouse, your children, parents, in-laws, or maybe your body and is causing much stress, sleepless nights etc….. Well let me share this with you.
In Mark 5 (Living Bible), there was a man that had serious issues, the Scriptures refer to him as “…….No one was strong enough to control him. All day long and through the night he would wander around”……(stressed out and unable to sleep etc.)……. HE HAD AN ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS AND HIS LIFE CHANGED FOREVER, listen to the comments of those that knew him and witnessed his situation:
Everyone rushed out to see for themselves. And a large crowd soon gathered where Jesus was; but as they saw the man sitting there, fully clothed and perfectly sane, they were frightened. Those who saw what happened were telling everyone about it,…….HE WAS SO GRATEFUL BECAUSE OF WHAT HAD HAPPENED TO HIM THAT HE WANTED TO FOLLOW JESUS and this is what Jesus replied:
Mark 5:19 (TLB) But Jesus said no.“GO home to your friends,” he told him, “and TELL them what wonderful things God has done for you; and how merciful he has been.”
Saul of Tarsus had a similar encounter and he wrote this in Romans 1:5 (TLB)
“And now, through Christ, all the kindness of God has been poured out upon us undeserving sinners; and now he is sending us out around the world to tell all people everywhere the great things God has done for them, so that they, too, will believe and obey him.”
