Scripture: Mark 5
Jesus relates to different people in different ways. Sometimes we can see why and sometimes it’s a little perplexing.
He even relates to demons in different ways: The demons in this story didn’t want to be sent out of the country, so for some reason Jesus sends them into a herd of pigs. I don’t know why…Jesus had His own reasons I’m sure.
The man who had been possessed by the demons wanted to go along with Jesus, like the disciples had been asked to do, but Jesus told him to go home instead…Again, I’m sure Jesus had his reasons.
As He was on His way to heal a little girl a woman touched His garment and she was healed. Her faith made her well, and He sent her away in peace. Jesus had His reasons for her too.
The little girl died before Jesus got there, He knew this, and told them, “Do not fear, only believe.” He came to her, and raised her up. Then He told the them to not tell anyone. He had reasons.
Jesus has His reasons. We may not always understand. All He asks of us is to not fear, only believe.
Journal: Write a prayer submitting to Jesus’ reasoning. Pray for faith to believe.

I saved this one on Pinterest a long time ago…didn’t realize there would be a new reason to want your own pew. Ha.
Praise the Lord, and just show up.
