Jesus is with us in Life’s Storms

Read: Mark 4:35-41

This story illustrates how God is in control of even the most desperate of circumstances. Here we find the disciples, several of whom were seasoned fisherman and sailors, frantically worried that they would perish in this storm. Although Jesus was with them, they thought he was oblivious to the severity of their situation. Yet Jesus wanted them to discover three important lessons.

1.       Jesus is Aware of Your Situation.

Although Jesus, being human, needed physical sleep for his weary body, he was still fully aware of his surroundings. Though the shrieking of the storm did not wake him, the cry of one of his disciples did, and he responded immediately and powerfully. Psalm 121:3 says, “He will not let you stumble; the one who watches over you will not slumber.”

2.       Jesus Will Answer Your Call for Help.

 

The Lord will do the same for you in the midst of your trials. Sometimes he just lets us reach the point of desperation so we will recognize that he is our only hope. He wants us to remember that he is on board with us.

 

3.       You Can Make It Through.

Every one of us is going to face hardship, but only the child of God has the promise that God’s presence is with him or her in the midst of the storm. As Jesus didn’t leave his disciples, so God will not leave you stranded in the middle of your problem. Although he didn’t promise smooth sailing, he did promise safe passage. Paul reminds us that “I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Jesus Christ returns” (Philippians 1:6)
