Face It Head On

imageThis is the view from what today is called Korsi. In Jesus’ day it was known as “the region of the Gardarenes.” This picture is taken from discovered tombs that were also found in the only area on the eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee big enough to graze a huge herd of pigs. Coincidence, huh?
Jesus left His “safe” base of operations in Capernaum and sailed across a huge lake to come deal with a very dangerous and lethal situation head-on – a couple of demon possessed guys, one of whom was chained hand and foot and kept under guard. Someone wanted to keep this guy from putting a serious hurt on others.
He could’ve let fear keep Him far far away from this guy. Yet, He went face to face with this very dangerous man and defeated the demons so the man could sit at Jesus’ feet, fully clothed and in his right mind. Jesus brought victory by dealing with the situation head on.
If we want to sit calmly at Jesus’ feet throughout each day, we too must deal with our sin, our challenges, our drugs of choice head on. We have nothing to fear because we’re sitting in the lap of our King (Eph. 2:6). Victory is ours by running towards the battle, not away from it.
If the Spirit is asking for an area of your life, now is the time to deal with it. Trust Him by using your biblical tools to let Him remove whatever it is that’s blocking you from experiencing more of Jesus. Peace comes not through surrender to our enemy, but by facing him head on and defeating him through the power of Jesus.
