I thought I would give us all a little reminder…
18 When Jesus saw the crowd around him, he told his followers to go to the other side of the lake.
Did you notice that?
Jesus said “GO TO THE OTHER SIDE”
Here is the rest of the story…
23 Jesus got into a boat, and his followers went with him.24 A great storm arose on the lake so that waves covered the boat, but Jesus was sleeping.25 His followers went to him and woke him, saying, "Lord, save us! We will drown!"
26 Jesus answered, "Why are you afraid? You don't have enough faith." Then Jesus got up and gave a command to the wind and the waves, and it became completely calm.
What about us?
Do we have enough faith to make it to the other side of the trial we are going through?
Don’t we realize that Jesus has promised us that we will make it to the other side?
30 God clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today but tomorrow is thrown into the fire. So you can be even more sure that God will clothe you. Don't have so little faith!31 Don't worry and say, 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What will we wear?'32 The people who don't know God keep trying to get these things, and your Father in heaven knows you need them.
5 Let everyone see that you are gentle and kind. The Lord is coming soon.6 Do not worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks.7 And God's peace, which is so great we cannot understand it, will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Ask God for what you need in faith & give thanks! Praise Him for what He has done for you! God is so good to us even when we are in the lowest valley, He is faithful to us!
Are we faithful to Him?
When everything in life is going great, we shout from the mountain tops & praise Him… but what happens when we are down in the deepest valley?
Do we say,
“Thank you Lord!”
“Glory to God!”
We should. Because look at where He has brought us from
My worst day as a believer is better than any of my best day’s were when I was lost.
Jesus will not leave you to sink. He will get you to the other side.
