And when the men of that place recognized Jesus, they sent word to all the surrounding country. People brought all their sick to him (Matthew 14:35)
God refreshes us. It can be through a sermon, a song, or a praise report, whatever the means, it motivates and encourages us to stay on course. The Lord knows what our responsibilities are; He can supply the drive and ability to meet those demands.
Once the disciples landed at Gennesaret, Jesus’ public ministry was again in full swing. When people heard Jesus had arrived, word spread very quickly. All who were sick in Gennesaret and the surrounding area were brought to Jesus. These needy ones were encouraged to not give up or lose hope while waiting for their miracle.
The precious time the disciples experienced worshiping with the Lord earlier on the boat, helped strengthen them to minister to others.
Lord, Thank You for meeting me where I am and providing the words I needed to hear. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
