Luke 8

Read Luke 8 – Sometimes God says no.   Sometimes we have expectations but the Lord’s purpose is different for us.  

The farmer plants seeds expecting crops, but not every seed thrives. Where did you fall in the seed parable(:4-:15).  It’s not too late to start taking care of your roots… get yourself in the ‘good soil’ of Jesus. 

The possessed man from Gadarenes was miraculously delivered from the legion of demons, and wanted to follow Jesus(8:26-38).  That seems noble, right?  But in verse :39 we learn Jesus sent him home telling him,  ” ‘No, go back to your family, and tell them everything God has done for you.’  So he went all through the town proclaiming the great things Jesus had done for him.” 

Do you ever get answers that are different from your expectations?   Do you respond with gratitude and obedience like the man did? Beloved, there is much more than this to be gleaned from our chapter,  happy reading!📖📖📖💖📖📖📖
