When a storm of troubles come in, it's easy for you to become discouraged. I mean, let's be honest. Someone has to pay the bills. Someone has to feed the kids. The last thing a person wants to hear when they feel defeated is "things will get better." Especially when all they want is change to happen right at that moment! But I wanted to remind someone today, that no matter how you feel, God is STILL in control.
I'm sure the day Jesus asked His disciples to cross the Galilean sea with Him, they had no clue what was about to happen. Just as many of us don't know what lies up ahead when we give God our yes. However, Jesus went with them into the very situation that would test their faith. Isn't it safe to say that God also goes into our storms with us?
When the storms and winds of life rise up against you, remember who those very winds and waters still fall in submission to. So to that somebody that finds themselves in the midst of a severe storm, know that no matter how turbulent the waters become that God is right there in the storm with you.
“On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.””
Mark 4:35 NKJV
“And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!””
Mark 4:41 NKJV
