In Luke 8, God through Luke records how some women were following Jesus and contributing support, Jesus tells the parable of the sower, the parable of the Lamp, stresses the importance of hearing and doing the word of God, calms the storm, cast out the demon from the man from Gerasene, heals the woman with the hemorrhage, and raises Jairus’ daughter from the dead. As I read these words this morning I was convicted of my own lack of faith in the greatness of Jesus. He showed over and over again HIS power over the natural and the supernatural, yet I often am anxious about many things going on in my life that are nothing compared to HIS power. I need to be reminded that the LORD loves me and has the power to overcome or walk me through any difficultly in my life. HE also does so for HIS glory and to make me more like Jesus. Lord, thank you for Your power and Your love for me to use it to make me more like Jesus.
