In times of trouble or difficulty, who do you go to ? Jesus’ disciples freely brought their troubles to him, because they found him always ready and able to deal with any difficulties they encountered. When Jesus entered Simon Peter’s house he immediately healed his mother-in-law.
The same is true for us. In times of need or difficulty, Jesus is always there for us to make things better. It’s like my little granddaughter when she gets an “ouchie”. A little kiss and it’s all better. No one who asked Jesus for help was left disappointed. Jesus in fact came to make things “all better”. There is no trouble he does not want to help us with and no bondage he can’t set us free from. He came to set us free from the bondage of sin and evil. He has the power to heal and to deliver.
Let us the ask ourselves, do I seek true freedom in Christ and trust in his power to set me free ? Let us serve him joyfully so that we may love and serve others generously !
