God will meet all your needs according
to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
Mark reports four back-to-back stories of people in critical need . . .
First, Jesus rescued a crew of terrified disciples trapped in a furious squall. He “rebuked the wind and said to the waves, ‘Quiet! Be still!’ Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.” (Mk 4:37-39)
Next, Jesus crossed paths with a man tortured by demons. He said, “Come out of this man, you evil spirit!” Next thing you know, that demoniac was “dressed and in his right mind.” (Mk 5:1-15)
Soon after, Jesus healed a woman who had an affliction that had stymied physicians for twelve years. (Mk 5:25-34).
Then he restored a dead child to life. (Mk 5:22-24, 35-43).
Four stories that assure us Jesus can handle any problem that invades our space.
There is no problem that
you have to handle alone.
