“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 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!

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!

only you can give me. You alone have the words of Eternal Life. You
alone love me unconditionally for who I am. Thank you Jesus! I turn
