Nothing Is Too Hard For God

Go home to your friends, and tell them what great things the Lord has done for you,

and how He has had compassion on you.

Mark 5:19

Nothing is too hard for God. When Jesus came ashore near a cemetery after a stormy night on the Sea of Galilee with His disciples, a man possessed by darkness immediately approached Him. When the Lord spoke to the demons inside the man, He drove them away, and set the man free.

When Jesus left, the man begged to go along. But Jesus didn’t allow it, because He had work for him to do: “Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you” (Mark 5:19).

We never see or hear about the man again, but Scripture shows us something intriguing. The people of that region had fearfully pleaded with the Lord “to leave” (v. 17), but the next time He returned there, a large crowd gathered (8:1). Could the crowd have resulted from Jesus sending the man? Could it be that he, who was once dominated by darkness, became one of the first missionaries, effectively communicating the Lord’s power to save?

We will never know on this side of heaven, but this much is clear. When God sets us free to serve Him, He can turn even a messy past into a message of hope and love.

Bible Reading

Mark 5:1-10.


Heavenly Father, Thank You, that when I was once in darkness, You sent someone to tell me about the Lord Jesus. Lead me to someone I can tell about my Saviour. In His name I pray. Amen.
