This passage tells the story of Jesus casting a legion of demons out of 2 men living in a gentile area. We’re not told if these men are Jewish or gentile, it makes little difference really – their internal lives were in the midst of a storm, a demonic storm bringing nothing but torment, confusion, rage & destruction – something that takes no notice of race or colour. Jesus on his way to these men, quieted the storm on the lake, now he is about to quite the storm within & bring complete restoration.

Marks gospel in 5:15 tells the same story though with the detail that once Jesus cast the demons out, the man was now in his right mind. Peace.

Regardless of how our internal storms come about or what they are, the fact that Jesus can bring peace, calm & restoration is a huge comfort to me.

Lord I thank you that you care about the storms in our lives, I invite you today to come & bring peace to my thoughts. Amen
