“Then Jesus entered a house…they went to take charge of him, for they said, ‘He is out of his mind’” Mark 3:20-21.

As the ministry of Jesus was emerging so were the rumors. Some felt that he had grown insane while others accused Him of allowing Satan to work miracles through His ministry. The work of Jesus has always been met with man’s questions and hypothesis. Our attempt of figuring out Jesus is no different than His own family many years ago. They actually lived with Him, knew Him best and still couldn’t figure Him out. They watched Him as eyebrows raised and tempers flared. They saw hearts soar for Him while others plotted against Him. They must have been confused as attempts were made in trying to figure out the person whom they loved.

How many of us this morning are experiencing a situation that we cannot believe God has allowed into our lives? He has entered into our circumstances and we cannot possible see how on earth this can ever be to our good. We might even question His sanity as His family did. How can God whom claims to love me allow this to consume me? So we scour the Bible, drop to our knees and call upon our own wisdom to figure out what God is doing…we are no better than His family years ago…trying to take charge of Jesus.

We can question Him and His decisions or we can trust the plans He has for us. We can wring our hands and draw conclusions in our own understanding or we can allow God the space required for Him to be God. We cannot lean on our own wisdom but lean on the One who has all of the wisdom.

Two things can happen in any of our circumstances…we can allow our circumstances to take charge of us or we can allow Christ to take charge of our circumstances. ‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the LORD… ‘so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.’ Isaiah 55:8-11.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
