But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion. And they woke him and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?”
Mark 4:38 ESV
When you are in the middle of the storm, it easy to focus on the wind, rain and the waves. It is normal to do this. At least normal as the world sees it!
Jesus didn’t respond like this. In fact, the disciples had to wake Him up when their boat was taking in water because they feared for their life.
“What Jesus, are you going to like, sleep through all of our deaths?”
Jesus got up, rebuked the storm and then asked the disciples why they were so afraid. He also asked, if they still had faith.
Here’s the thing. Jesus has you!
No storm. No sickness. No calamity will take you until He is ready for you! And when He is ready, there is nothing going to stop Him.
Jesus knew that His destiny didn’t end on a boat in the middle of the water. There was a purpose to His life!
Many fear because they don’t know their destiny. Many fear because they don’t know the next step. And they don’t know the next step because they don’t spend time with Jesus to find out.
So then life becomes this big bouncy house where they bounce from one thing to another.
It doesn’t have to be this way! God has a plan for your life! Take the time to find out! Align your life with His and see what happens!
Are you still afraid? Are you still without faith?
Father, lead me on the path You have set before me in the power of the Holy Spirit. Help me to walk boldly and confidently in Your will.
