In the Midst of the Storm

Description

The storms in our lives remind us that we need Jesus to help us get through them.

They were terrified and asked each other, "Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey Him!" Mark 4:41 NIV

Oh, to simply trust the Lord! What a marvelous way to go through life.

I know that intellectually. I know that experientially! I know that in my heart! Oh, but to live that truth everyday, there is the challenge!

The disciples were stunned…again! They couldn’t believe their eyes. One minute they were in a state of panic, thinking they were about to die. They had called upon Jesus, who was asleep in the back of the boat, perhaps to bail water, perhaps to hold their hands as they died, and Jesus woke up, said a couple of words, and calmed the storm. Wow! What a miracle! What a God!

Was this the last time they would ever doubt Jesus again? I don’t think so! As I read the account of the disciples, they continued to need growth in their spiritual life. There would be new trials. There would be new storms. They would have more to learn about this Savior named Jesus.

Where are you? Are you through the storm yet, or are you in the middle? Where are you going to be on the other side? Stronger? Most likely. More faithful? Probably. But, does that mean you will never doubt again? Probably not. If you are like most Christians I know, the storms will make you a better Christian, but they will also only prepare you for the next storm in your life. You’ll need to learn some things about Jesus then, too. And, you’ll need to rely on Him to get you through that one too!

Use the current, or the past storm, to remind you of the God who is able to get you through the next one!
