Fear Steals Blessings

28And when he came to the other side, to the country of the Gadarenes, two demon-possessed men met him, coming out of the tombs, so fierce that no one could pass that way. 29And behold, they cried out, “What have you to do with us, O Son of God? Have you come here to torment us before the time?” 30Now a herd of many pigs was feeding at some distance from them. 31And the demons begged him, saying, “If you cast us out, send us away into the herd of pigs.” 32And he said to them, “Go.” So they came out and went into the pigs, and behold, the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea and drowned in the waters. 33The herdsmen fled, and going into the city they told everything, especially what had happened to the demon-possessed men. 34And behold, all the city came out to meet Jesus, and when they saw him, they begged him to leave their region. ~ Matthew 8:28-34

Fear can hold you back and stop you from getting your blessing. Imagine what more Jesus could have done in their region if they had not been afraid. If they had just had faith and brought him their sick. Brought him their hurting. Imagine how much more they would have gotten if they had just asked. The church has become like this. The church has become fearful of things we do not understand. Because we don’t understand power, we don’t seek it. Because we don’t understand prophecy, we don’t seek it. Imagine if we did.

Jesus said if we would only seek, we would find. If we would only ask, we would receive. But we are too afraid to seek things we don’t fully understand. Let us no longer be like the people of the Gadarenes, fearful and without faith, but instead let us be courageous and full of faith.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Seek.
