Savior, Wonderfully, Enthusiastically Redeems Situations! (A.N.S.W.E.R.S)"
“That evening after sunset
the people brought to Jesus all the sick and demon-possessed. The whole
town gathered at the door, 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.” (Mark 1:32-34, NIV)
I asked myself what the
That evening after
sunset the people brought to Jesus all the sick and demon-possessed.
The whole town
gathered at the door.
I asked myself the
significance of their actions!
It is very interesting when there were those who
were sick and demon-possessed, other people were the ones that brought
them to Jesus. They intervened on behalf of the sick and demon-possessed
so Jesus could heal them.
It is also very interesting that the whole
town gathered at the door of Simon and Andrew’s home. This is evident
from the previous verses (Mark 1:29-31) regarding where Jesus was
staying. They were ready and expectant for a healing service!
I asked myself what Jesus
Jesus healed many who had various diseases.
Jesus drove out many demons.
Jesus did not let the demons speak because
they knew who He was.
I saw important implications for my own life.
When others are sick with various diseases, I can take them before the
Lord and be expectant for healing. The people were expectant and ready
for a healing service and Jesus did not disappoint. Jesus answered!
Not only that. Jesus made
Himself available for the people. Jesus had spent time earlier in the
synagogue, then went to Peter and Andrew's home for fellowship time,
healed Peter's mother-in-law. Now it is evening and Jesus still spends
time healing people who were looking for an answer to their problems.
I ask you now dear friend,
where do you need an answer?
Dear friend, there will be times when you do not
know when the answer you are looking for will come. There are other
times when you will be placed in a position to help someone else out. In
either case, expect an answer from the Lord. It does not matter what
area of life it is.
The Lord Jesus will answer! Whatever situation you are faced with
whether it is the death of a loved one (I know my dad passed away
recently), the loss of a job, the sorrow of a loved one, the loss
of a relationship, travel plans, family problems, etc, you can bring
yourself before the Lord Jesus for an answer and you can bring others to
Jesus. Jesus wants to help, yes He does friend! He will reach us where
The people went expecting Jesus to do great
things and Jesus did not disappoint. Jesus is the same yesterday, today,
and tomorrow. I believe what He did in those days, He still can do
today. He uses His followers to accomplish His great works in these last
days. At other times, Jesus intervenes directly!
Expect the Lord to send the answer in your life
for He is the Answer for what you are going through. He is your Tower of
refuge and strength. We may not understand why things happen the way
they do but Jesus answers in His perfect timing.
You can also be the one to show the Answer to
one who is suffering. You have the awesome opportunity of bringing
people to Jesus for healing no matter what kind of various diseases they
are facing. What people face are not always physical but they can be
spiritual, psychological, emotional, mental, etc but Jesus has the power
to reach all areas of life. That is exciting to know friend. I believe
that with my whole heart and as you look to Scripture and to the One who
made you and me, you can have that faith too!
May you know the Lord Jesus Christ answers in your life and waits for
you to come to Him with all your wants and needs! Amen! May you know the One who
loves you so much and wants to be your Answer! Amen!
"Almighty Nurturing Savior,
Wonderfully, Enthusiastically Redeems Situations!" (A.N.S.W.E.R.S)/”Where
do you need an answer?”
Jesus, thank you for staying in Peter and Andrew’s home after the
worship service and healing Peter’s mother-in-law. Then, after sunset
you patiently healed so many who had various diseases when people
brought them to you and the town gathered at the door. Just as you
healed Peter's mother-in-law, I believe you healed each one individually
and personally. I thank you Jesus. This makes me really happy because
you are a God who loves and cares for our needs. You can heal us now too
and answer us in our distress. I thank you Jesus. You know the answers
we are looking for in our lives. There are areas which we need an answer
and wait on you for your help. Help us also to bring people to you so
they can be healed and see that you are the Answer. I thank you Jesus.
Thank you for hearing us and answering us! In Your Name I Pray Jesus!
If you would like to invite Jesus Christ into your heart and make Him a
daily part of your life, you can this very moment. You will never be
alone. You can claim God's promises for you in the Bible and see them
come true, before your eyes, in His wonderful timing. You don't have to
wait for a special time to come to the Lord. You can come right now as
you pray the prayer below, meaning it in your heart.
God I am a sinner. I am invaded by this deadliest virus. Many times I
feel so guilty and yucky inside. I need forgiveness. I am so sorry for
my sins. I have not obeyed you with my whole heart! I have gone my own
way and done my own things. I still struggle with sin. I need you Jesus
in my life so I can receive forgiveness and a new beginning. In the
process, I can forgive others as you help me to. Thank you so much
Jesus. I accept the antidote you have sent me. I believe Jesus you died
for me and your cleansing blood will cleanse me from all my sins. You
came back to life to save me. Thank you God I am set free, free from the
bondage of sin. Hear my cry Oh Lord. I accept you Jesus into my heart. I
make you my Lord and Personal Savior of my life. Thank you Father God
for giving me Salvation. Thank you Jesus for coming into my heart and
making my heart your home. Thank you for living in me Jesus and I will
live for you and serve you the rest of the days of my life. Thank you
for being my Lord and personal Savior! I can live a life of peace with
you on my side. Thank you that you have heard my prayer and answered me!
In your Name I Pray Jesus! AMEN! Thank you Lord for answering my prayer.
Friend, if you have prayed this
prayer and meant it in your heart, you are a new creation in Christ and
all old things are passed away and everything has become new! You may
feel something or may not but don’t base it on feelings but base your
new life in Christ on the promises of our Savior who will never leave
you nor forsake you! Amen!
No matter what you feel in your heart,
know that Jesus has come in and resides with you! You are not alone! To
make your walk strong with the Lord, spend time in prayer talking to Him
as you would to a friend. You don’t need special words to talk to the
Lord. Spend time in His Word reading Psalms and turning them into
prayer. Next allow God to heal you and speak to you through the Gospel
of John or Gospel of
Mark before moving on to other Books of the Bible! Slowly, let the Lord
show you to which Scriptures He wants you to go to next. It is also important to be part of a body of believers to
help you grow in the faith. Find a Bible believing church that preaches
the Word of God from Genesis to Revelation proclaiming Jesus Christ our
crucified and risen Lord who brings us hope, healing, and help! But
beware of churches who do believe in the Word of God completely but
there is no freedom in Christ but legalism involved.
student, it is not too late to join a fellowship on campus too this
blessed New Year of 2008! May the Lord's presence and peace fill you with His
love now and forever! Amen!
