The story in Mark 5:1-20 where Jesus faced a demon-possessed man seems like a story that would strike fear in the hearts of the hearers. I think the disciples who stood there with Jesus probably were a little scared. The local people of the day were unhappy to have lost their pigs, but they had to look at the bright side of the situation and remember that they were no longer plagued with fear when traveling through that area.
Join me at Seek God With Me where I’m sharing how Jesus can take the scary out of the situation.
We all face scary situations. Some of us relocate to a new community and have to adjust to new friends, new climate, or new responsibilities. Sometimes just going to the dentist is a scary situation. If we’ll remember who Jesus is, everything turns out better. Check out my devotional blog today for a happy ending.
