We have a choice: Faith or Fear. For every mega storm endured in life, we choose faith or fear.
Choose to grow through storms and hard times not just go through them. Let go and let God. Want to relax like Jesus did while in the eye of the hurricane? Do not be fishing for anything but Jesus. We should only be casting our cares on him. When something is too heavy for us to carry in our daily lives, we do not hesitate to ask for help. If the temptation is too big, do not pick it up. Follow His example. Speak to the storm and say: “Peace; be still.” or “Hush. Put a muzzle on it.” He will take you through to the other side. Just ask Him.
On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.” Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. But He was…asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?” Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is that you have no faith?” -Mark 4:35-41
No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God [is] faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear [it]. – 1 Corinthians 10:13 NKJV
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; – Philippians 4:6 NKJV
I enCOURAGE YOU to CHOOSE FAITH. TRUST GOD. DO NOT FEAR. He is in the boat with us through the mega storms of life. We will go over because we are overcomes in Him. As Christians, we trust God with our eternity, how and why do we have trouble trusting Him with our today?
