JUST BECAUSE…Jesus Is In The Boat With You
Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping.
The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?”
Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”
Matthew 8:23-27 NIV
The ONLY ONE who can provide deep, satisfying comfort, when you’re on the cliff-edge of doom, is the God of All Comfort!
He is THEE safe place to hide. Standing at-the-ready to help you walk courageously through the storm.
See, He either calms the storm or calms you in the storm. Either way, you win. He knows the end from the beginning. He wants you to trust that He will take you safely through the sea storms to the other side.
This stormy circumstance, that you’re in, did not take God by surprise. He’s not scratching His head trying to figure out what to do now that you’re in this mess.
He wants you to look up! He wants you to rise above what you see…the raging, tossing waves…and place your faith in the Unseen. He wants you to experience peace in the midst of the storm. His peace that passes all human understanding.
