“Now it happened, on a certain day, that He got into a boat with His disciples. And He said to them, Let us cross over to the other side of the lake. And they launched out. But as they sailed He fell asleep. And a windstorm came down on the lake, and they were filling with water, and were in jeopardy.”
The LORD asks us to launch out into ministry everyday, but as soon as we hit the first sign of rough water we panic and want to give up! “Master, Master, we are perishing!”
“But He said to them (and us), Where is your faith? And they were afraid, and marveled, saying to one another, Who can this be? For He commands even the winds and water, and they obey Him!”
Life has it’s issues, we see this just about everyday, the waters of life start to overtake us and we panic! Crying out LORD where are You, realize He is right there with you and is going to step in at the perfect moment!
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
Remember the LORD has a future for us, full of His hope! It doesn’t mean we won’t have storms!
“And know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”
So today just Love the LORD and know you are called to His purposes! He will calm the storms in His timing, just have faith in Him! Have a blessed day walking with Him!
