Mark 5:43 (NIV)
He gave strict orders not to let anyone know about this, and told them to give her something to eat.
Jesus, You never sought the limelight even though You are the most famous man to ever live. You healed the sick and raised the dead and commanded people to keep these miracles a secret. If I had done these things, I would have wanted to tell everyone, maybe even create a reality TV show about it. Full of humility, You sought a better glory than earthly fame.
May I realize that even when You break through and do something miraculous in my life, it is never about me. Even if divine power works miracles through my hands, I am never to seek my own glory. The only famous one for a true worshipper of Christ is God alone. You alone are worthy to receive all praise, honor and glory.
May I keep Your secrets so that Your kingdom mission will be accomplished. More than fame or kudos, You focused on doing the will of The Father. May I approach each day with the same dedication because I know that notoriety makes it difficult to stay on mission. Amen!
