Trust In The Storm
Having a Savior that the wind and waves obey should always trump fear and worry.
I don’t know how many times in my life I have told Jesus that He is in control and that I trust in Him and his plan for my life, but then when the storms of life come at me I waffle on that commitment. I have learned over the years to give it all to God. I admit it wasn’t an easy place to get to in my life.
I was recently asked if I was stressed about a major project that I was involved with and I was able to honestly say no, I was asked if that was because I had what most people would call a whimsical carefree attitude. I was able to refute that with scripture
Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?” Look at the birds of the air, nor they neither sow nor reap nor gather into the barns yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
There was a time in my life when worry consumed me which only distracted me from my Savior and His promises that He would never leave nor forsake me. In Mark 4 we see Jesus’ disciples fearful of the storm and seemingly thinking that Jesus didn’t care, it is easy for us to look at that and say wow these guys walked with and saw Jesus do miracles and they still were fearful. Our flesh will always struggle this side of heaven with these emotions; however, we have the truth and know the truth that Jesus tells us not to worry and that He will never leave nor forsake us. Having a Savior that the wind and waves obey should always trump fear and worry.
