Faith in the midst of the storm

June 2

“That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.”   Mark 4:35.  

The Word of the LORD was given, “Let us go over to the other side.”  Jesus gave them a determined destination. “Us” meant that Jesus would be with them in the journey to their destination. God with them should have made them confident in the power of His preservation, in the security of His peace, and in the guarantee of His protection.

Jesus, the Savior of the world, was in the boat with His disciples. If He can save the world he can save them in a storm. They stepped out by faith in calm waters, when suddenly a furious storm came up to destroy them.  If Jesus can save the world, He can save you.

When in a storm:

1) Do not lose integrity.  Keep doing what is right in spite how you feel and what others might be saying.  Regardless of others reaction, keep your integrity by thinking, saying, and doing the right things. 

2) Do not lose hope.  Keep the promise (Word of the LORD) of Jesus in the forefront of your mind.  Say it and rehearse it: “We are going over to the other side.” 

3) Exalt and Praise God. God is greater than the storm.  God is stronger that than the winds.  Praise God and create an atmosphere for God to save you.

The LORD your God is with you, “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” Isaiah 43:2. God is with you.

Kingdom Declaration:

The Lord is my Shepherd. He will protect me at all times.
