“When Jesus was still some distance away, the man saw Him, ran to meet Him, and bowed low before Him. With a shriek, he screamed, “Why are You interfering with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? In the Name of God, I beg you, don’t torture me!””
As Jesus arrived in Gerasenes, a demon possessed man came out from ‘a cemetery to meet Him.’ This man had so many demons in him, that not even chains or shackles could keep him down. Yet there was one thing that could. Jesus’ presence. Jesus came and the man possessed by the demon fell at His feet. He acknowledged who Jesus was and fell in submission to Him. Isn’t that a great picture who our God is? This is the God we serve friends. Even demons can’t help but fall to the feet of Jesus in submission. There was no fighting. There was no arguing. There was no physical contact. It was just Jesus’ presence that caused ‘legion’ to submit to Jesus’ authority. In the previous chapter, in Mark 4, Jesus demonstrated that even the wind and waves submitted to His voice when He calmed the storm with just His word ‘Silence’!
When we understand the God we serve, every circumstance we face, every opposition we meet, both physically and spiritually, that seems to tower over us, falls into submission to our powerful God. This powerful God, this King Jesus, is our God and our King. He is on our side. There is nothing or no-one, no circumstance or opposition that can even stand against the power of Jesus. Submit all to Him, invite Jesus’ presence into your situation and watch the victory you have in Him.
