Battling In the Storm
The Sea of Galilee was in a wild storm that threatened to overturn boats. The experienced fisherman who had become Jesus disciples were frightened. Everyone in the boat feared for their lives except for one. Jesus was asleep in the boat.
How many times do we go through storms in our life, and we are frightened? We might even be wondering when Jesus is going to wake up. At these times our faith is being tested.
Well, Jesus woke up and calmed the storms.
Mark 4:39 (NIV)
39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.
How do we apply this to our lives today? God has authority over any circumstance we might face in life. Each one of us is facing something right now in our life. It might be health issues, children’s issues, job issues, financial issues, marriage issues. The point is that we all have storms in our life, and God allows tough tests in our life to test our faith.
Put your faith in the One who can calm the storm.
