Matthew 8:16: When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: 17: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
Unstoppable: The unstoppable, unswayable nature of Jesus challenges my thoughts. His persistence in the face of challenge is incredible. Think about this situation. He had just had a hard day, found Peter’s mother-in-law sick, settled down for a meal and relaxing with friends, and then the someone raps on the door. “Jesus, come out quickly there is a mob of sick, demonized, bleeding, open-wounded, moaning people out here who want to see you.”
How would you respond?
He healed all that were sick. He cast out the spirits with His word.
ACT! The next calendar challenge that comes to you, stop and take care of the interruption for the other person immediately. See what happens.
PRAY! Father, I want to be able to have the presence of mind of Jesus. How incredible that He could stop at anytime and concentrate totally on the one pressing need in front of Him. Teach me, Father. Teach me to be ever able and ever present for people in need.
