No Storm Too Big

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Luke 8:22-25; Mark 4:35-41

Following Jesus' instructions, the disciples (with Jesus) head out by boat. Part way through their journey, they encounter difficulty in the form of a great wind storm that threatens to sink the boat. As the waves and water begin filling the boat, the disciples are scared. Jesus, on the other hand, is comfortably sleeping in the stern of the boat as the storm rages around them.

Difficult situations (storms) are simply part of life. But as followers of Christ, we don't have to respond in fear when our circumstances feel overwhelming. What a comfort to know that God is in control, He knows our situation and He will be there to guide, direct and sustain us in and through our storms.

How has God helped you navigate in and through the storms? And if you're up for it, encourage us with one of your stories. Tami

We've just spent several weeks in our church examining this very topic of sensing God during the storms of life.

In the face of life's storms, I've learned firsthand the faithfulness of God. What's more, I've learned that He can take even the greatest of tragedies and turn it into the greatest of blessings, which can then be used for His sake to aid others. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 really is true: the Father comforts us in our troubles, so that we can comfort others with that same comfort. I've found that to be true in my life.
