And when He had come to the other side into the country of the Gadarenes, two men who were demon-possessed met Him as they were coming out of the tombs; they were so exceedingly violent that no one could pass by that road. ~ Matthew 8:28
We left off a couple weeks ago with an account of Jesus calming the seas. Now when He and the boys reach the shores on the other side, they are faced with an impassable road.
Seems as though somebody did not want Jesus coming to this side of the lake.
How do you deal with resistance?
Have you ever sensed that God has given you direction and at every step the path itself is against you?
The trick is discerning whether it was my idea, and God is preserving me by closing the door, or is it God’s idea, and the hater of my soul would rather have me dead than walk in the will of my Father.
Have you ever tried to walk the path and seen the road signs that say, “Demon ahead, find another path?”
What would you do?
See you tomorrow.
