IMMEDIATELY the Spirit drove him into the wilderness. (Mark 1:12)
They IMMEDIATELY left their nets and followed him. (Mark 1:18 )
And IMMEDIATELY he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants, and went after him. (Mark 1:20)
Then they went into Capernaum, and IMMEDIATELY on the Sabbath he entered the synagogue and taught. (Mark 1:21)
And IMMEDIATELY his fame spread throughout all the region around Galilee. (Mark 1:28 )
So he came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and IMMEDIATELY the fever left her. And she served them. (Mark 1:31)
As soon as he had spoken, IMMEDIATELY the leprosy left him, and he was cleansed. (Mark 1:42)
Jesus, there is an “IMMEDIATELY” that came into your life from the Holy Spirit at your baptism and I see that same “IMMEDIATELY” in the disciples response to your call to them. I want that same “IMMEDIATELY” in my life. Please baptize me afresh with your Holy Spirit so that I can “IMMEDIATELY” respond to his promptings. Thank you.

This Lent, keep searching, don’t stop looking. You will find Him. You will fill the void in your heart. Fill that void with “The Word” of God. Jeremiah 29:13 writes, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Please pray for my father The Rev. David Mumford who was admitted to the hospital last night in the UK. He was kept over night. Please also pray for my mum Jean. Thank you so very much indeed. God bless you.
