Riding Out The Storm! by Elaine Davenport Saturday, May 24, 2008

Jesus took the disciples all around. They had firsthand experience to seeing miracles, signs and wonders!    That must have really built their faith…right?  Right.  It did, yet when a storm came, they only knew to get Jesus.  Which in itself is good for many of us…yet Jesus rightfully expected more of them because they were at a higher level.


Jesus Calms the Storm
Mark 4:

35That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” 36Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”

39He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.

40He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”

41They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”

Recently, I stepped out of an awful storm.  It came on strong in the beginning like Hurricane Katrina; only it didn’t go away.  Thing after thing happened to test my faith for well over a month and near what I  felt was the end…sickness trying to latch on…failed!   What a journey!  Stay with God…He will not leave you or forsake you…I know.    Sometimes you just gotta ride out the storm and stand in faith!
