And he said to them, “Why are you cowardly? Do you still not have faith?”
Mark 4:40 NET
The wind and waves raged as the disciples, some of them expert fisherman who knew their way around boats and the sea, panicked and were afraid for their lives.
Where was Jesus? He was asleep in the boat.
How could He be asleep at a desperate time like this?
He knew who He was, what He was supposed to do and where He was headed.
Jesus knew He was the Son of God. He knew His purpose and what the Father wanted from His life. And He knew that when everything was said and done, He would go back to Heaven.
What about You?
Are you a child of God? Really?
Do you know what God has called you to? Really?
When it is all said and done, and this life is over, do you know where you are going? Really?
Take care of this today… so you won’t be afraid.
Although Jesus was the Son of God, He spent time with the Father in prayer. This is where it all happens!
This is where we build that relationship and where our confidence in who He is, is found.
You don’t have to live in fear! God has a plan for you and it is better than you can imagine! Draw close to Him and you will know it for yourself.
Lord, thank You for regular times when I can spend with You. Show me Your ways that I might walk obediently to You.
