Dark clouds were rolling in and they heard the thunder begin to roar. They saw flashes of lighting everywhere as their boat rocked from one side to the other on the raging sea. Stranded in the middle of the sea with the storm water flooding in they had no idea what to do. And as they kept looking at the waves crashing around them and heard the thunder roar, as they saw flashes of lighting they felt only one thing: fear.
And I don’t blame them. If I were one of the disciples I would be pretty afraid at that moment too. I would be scared for my life. I would worry about whether or not I would make it out alive.
Why did the disciples fear the situation they were in so much? Because of one reason: they forgot that Jesus was in their boat.
They forgot that the Almighty Son of God who has no limits of the mighty things He could do was with them. They forgot that the miracle worker was right there in that storm with them. They forgot that they were not alone and that with one word the One who was with them could calm the raging storm.
Do you ever forget? I know I do.
I think we all find ourselves in that boat sometime. In the situation where we see darkness all around us. When we don’t see any hope for a way out. When our world seems like it could be over any second.
I just have one thing to say to you: Jesus was in the boat with His disciples in the middle of that storm.
And He is with you in your boat whatever it may be.
Go to Him. Ask Him for help. Trust Him to calm that storm for you or just to calm you in the storm.
There is absolutely nothing that God cannot do for you. There is no storm too hard for Him to stop. There is nothing He cannot get you through.
Be blessed and never forget… Jesus is in YOUR boat today! –Anna… ♥
