Weathering The Storms Of Life





 
Following the miracle of the feeding of the 5,000 three of the Gospels contain the account of Jesus walking on the water. While John does not mention exactly why the disciples were out on the Sea of Galilee, Matthew and Mark are more explicit. They were out on the water because Jesus sent them there.
And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away. Matthew 14:22


And straightway he constrained his disciples to get into the ship, and to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while he sent away the people. Mark 6:45


Now you might be thinking, "K :princess:, does it really matter whether or not Jesus sent them? I mean, the point of this story is Jesus calmed the storm, right?" Perhaps, but I believe God is trying to teach us something more than the fact that the winds and the waves obey Him. Don't get me wrong. I believe that is an important lesson but I also believe there is more to be gleaned from these accounts of Jesus stilling the storms, both when He was in the boat with the disciples in the beginning and when He came to them walking on the water.

Sometimes God is going to send us into the storm. There are many Christians who do not like to hear that. LOL! Truthfully, I don't think most of us relish the idea of being thrust into a storm. That sort of ranks right up there with giants, fiery furnaces and lions' dens, right? Notice that God didn't keep His people out of those places either. However, please note that whenever He did allow them to do so, eventually in His time, He delivered them from giants, fiery furnaces, lions' dens and... raging storms.

The question is not whether or not a Christian will face adversity in this life. The question is, how will you face it? Will you take your eyes off of Christ and when you start to sink, fight off his outstretched hand? Or will you fix your eyes on Him and keep on walking?

Blessings!

  Hmmm, isn't it interesting we both post blogs dealing with the disciples out in a boat during a storm. Me thinks there must be some storms brewing. Great blog sister/friend.
