Scripture Reading: Luke 8:35-36
Then they went out to see what was done; and came to Jesus, and found the man, out of whom the devils were departed, sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid. They also which saw it told them by what means he that was possessed of the devils was healed.
Reflections: This was unbelievable before the eyes of the people of the province of Gadarens. They found the man who hitherto had been possessed with demons and could not be controlled now sitting down calmly and having a chat with Jesus. He no longer lived in the tomb. He no longer convulsed. He no longer cut himself with stones. He was even now dressed up and was no longer naked. He had completely become normal. It was evident that they had perceived the man’s condition of insanity as irreversible and had therefore written him off. No wonder they had tied him up in chains and left him to make his living in the tombs. Now here he was, having had his condition completely healed and reversed by Jesus. In life, people may write you off thinking that you will never be able to come out of some predicament you find yourself in but God can surprise them. He will prove them wrong. When people write you off, remember that God can count you in. No condition can hold you up forever!
Prayer: Dear Lord, I thank you that when people write me off, you will count me in! You are the miracle working God.
Confession: No condition can hold me up forever!
