ON THE OTHER SIDE ~ of fear, Jesus calm the waters
Luke 8:22-25 New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Calms the Storm
22 One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side of the lake.” So they got into a boat and set out. 23 As they sailed, he fell asleep. A squall came down on the lake, so that the boat was being swamped, and they were in great danger. 24 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!” He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm.
25 “Where is your faith?” he asked his disciples.
In fear and amazement they asked one another, “Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him.”
ON THE OTHER SIDE ~
Jesus wanted his disciples to trust him. He asked them, "where is your faith". Jesus showed the power of God by commanding the winds and the water to obey him. Such power and example before the disciples. Such power and example given to us throughout the Bible. We can read it, but can we image what it must have been like in those days? A person named Jesus speaks and miracles take place. We can read about stories and lives of so many throughout the Bible. Real examples of over-comers and trusting God. There are other examples in our lives too. I've heard of miracles in lives and I've seen miracles in lives.
ON THE OTHER SIDE ~ OF FEAR IS PEACE
Why not let God lead your life and turn things around. One thought can be changed in a moments time and we can live in freedom of a new day. I know life isn't always easy, but God connects us with others and I'm so glad he does. I know that prayers works and it begins inside of us. If you have something huge in your life today, turn it over to God. Don't allow fear or doubt to block you from blessings.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
