Jesus did not let him, but said, "Go home to your family and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you."
-- Mark 5:19
One of the truest statements I have ever heard was that God does not call the equipped, rather God equips the called. Hear the Good News, as God enters into your life, you will notice opportunities for growth and discovery. You will be able to grow in your faith and understanding of who God is and what that exactly means. You will also discover new elements of life that you care about. You will find that you have many gifts that may have been overlooked. Moreover, you may find that you are surrounded by something that needs you attention, yet you have overlooked it, over and over.
Jesus told this man to go HOME and tell THEM how much the lord has done for you. Tell those at HOME about God's mercy. This man was overlooking home. What discoveries do you need to make? Where is it that you need to grow?
Father, thank You for coming into my life. Be with me as I seek to discover more about You and myself. Enlighten me so I might see with wisdom and act with courage. And Father, as I grow, allow me to be always faithful to You and Your Love. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
