We All Have Our Demons

It's a well-known story in the Bible...Jesus has just calmed the raging sea, and now he finds himself on shore, confronted by a raving, naked crazy man who can't be controlled, and who lives in a cemetery. As it turns out, the man is filled with demons who have taken control of him. But in spite of the man's protests, Jesus orders them out. Free from his demons, the man returns to normalcy, eager to follow Jesus. 

The people in his village are at first amazed. But soon they become fearful and ask Jesus to leave -
"too much change, too fast, and they were scared"

Often we wonder where God is when we battle our own demons. But could it be that we're the problem? Could it be that we, too, are afraid to let go of our demons - afraid of too much change, too fast?
