Jesus Calms the Storm
He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”Mark 4:29
We all go through storms in our life, such as financial, sickness, addictions, loneliness, fear, and loneliness. The Lord knows every challenge we have in life, and through faith he will guide us through anything we face, even physical death. There is nothing in this world that can snatch us out the God’s righteous right hand. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them out of My hand. My Father who has given them to Me is greater than all. No one can snatch them out of My Father’s hand. (John 10:28-29) We are secure and Heaven is our home, and there is no storm in life that the Lord cannot carry us through in victory.
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. (2 Corinthians 4:18) We fix our eyes on what is unseen because what is unseen is eternal, life in Heaven. We live in this world for the divine purpose of ministering to people, with our focus on eternity.
Jesus calms the storms in our life to increase our faith and to bring us closer to him. God is molding us to the mind and heart of Jesus so we can be closer to the Lord. Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. (1 John 4:7) God’s love increases in our hearts as we minister to others, and love calms the storm in our life.
Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:13) Our faith and hope are born out of a heart filled with God’s love, and God’s love casts out Satan’s fear. With a heart filled with God’s love, we seek the Lord to calm every storm in our life and to overcome every temptation from Satan. Love enables to know the Lord, and the more we know the Lord, the more we depend on the Lord, and the more we desire to be with the Lord.
For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. (Philippians 1:21) The apostle Paul lived for Christ and to die was gain; to go home to be with the Father and the Son. This can be the attitude of ever Christian, because it brings great faith, hope, and peace.
Today depend on the Lord to carry you through every storm with his divine love and power. No one can calm the storm and give you comfort like Christ.
Prayer: Lord, I trust you to carry me through every storm in life, because you can do all things. Guide me to reveal your love and power, and to tell others to seek your love and power in their life. In Jesus name, Amen
