Jesus calms the storm…

1 Jan


Mark 4: 35-41, “And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side. And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships. And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith? And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?

Mark 4:35-41, is a remarkable account of being servant unto the will of God. The Gospel of Mark gives believers a description of Jesus Christ as God’s servant continually doing the Father’s will while here on Earth. The above scriptures describe and event after a day of teaching many in the ways of the Kingdom of God, Jesus gives His Disciples the instruction for them, to “Cross over unto the other side of the waters,” in which a storm arose while Jesus was asleep. This storm is symbolic of the trials many Christians face, while we endure in these flesh bodies awaiting the second return of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is always important to remember that as long as we stay consecrated to the Word of God that we have no fear as to what this life may bring us. The Disciples lost Faith that the Lord instructed them to “cross over the water,” in which then the storm arose. We know that as long as we follow the Lord we will never be in danger due to the fact that in Christ we are secure as stated in Hebrews 13:6, “So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.” Jesus Christ is never wrong when He gives instructions unto His followers! If we are met with opposition, (which is always a plan of the enemy 1 Peter5:8) trust in the Word of God to always see you through. Psalm 40:1-3 reads “I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And He hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: Many shall see it, and fear, And shall trust in the Lord.” Shalom…
