Living life in this God forsaken world can be very difficult at times, especially while we’re following Christ and trying to do what’s right; the pressures of the world and the storms that come a long can be frightful! They toss us too and fro, back and forth, it gets tiring! Sometimes they bring us down so low, that we end up in so deep that we can’t get out! We have this tendency to rely on ourselves instead of relying on God! We forget we have an advocate who can calm the storms and get us through them!
We can read an account in Mark 4:35-41, where Jesus’ disciples were in a storm; they were in so deep that they thought they were going to die!
On the same day, when evening had come, He [Jesus] said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.” Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him. And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?” Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?” And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!”
The moral of the story… “Jesus has the power to calm storms!” And when the storms of life get rough, don’t fret! Have faith and let Jesus get you through them! As Jesus calmed the storm for His disciples He will calm the storms for you! But, you must have faith! You must have faith!
Live a life worth living! Live the victorious life following Christ! Live the Spirit fed life and be ready for everything this world has to throw at you!
Lord God, I cry out to you, I ask that you help me to put all my trust in Your Son Jesus! Help me to be all that I can be in Him! I can survive these storms because I choose to have the faith needed to get through all things! And I will be at peace knowing I have the hope and promise to look forward to in you, with Jesus by my side! Amen! And amen!
