Scripture: Luke 4:40-44
Luke 4:40-44 says, “When the sun was setting, all those who had any that were sick with various diseases brought them to Him; and He laid His hands on every one of them and healed them. And demons also came out of many, crying out and saying, ‘You are the Christ, the Son of God!’ And He, rebuking them, did not allow them to speak, for they knew that He was the Christ. Now when it was day, He departed and went into a deserted place. And the crowd sought Him and came to Him, and tried to keep Him from leaving them; but He said to them, ‘I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, because for this purpose I have been sent.’ And He was preaching in the synagogues of Galilee.” There is a God Who rules in the affairs of men and this is the message of His Kingdom. There is a God and His name is Jesus and He will rule in our lives. He will intervene in our times of need. He will overturn the works of the devil. Jesus demonstrated the Kingdom everywhere He went. He preached the Kingdom and demonstrated the Kingdom. And this same Jesus has anointed us to follow His lead and do as He did! We are His avenue for doing His exploits. The question is, are we going to say yes and yield to it? It makes for the greatest life we have ever seen! Our part is to say yes, commit to the growth and commit to the process. This is about laying down our life including our ambitions, aspirations and desires and picking up Christ’s plan for us.
