We all have “storms” in our lives, problems and pains. The “storms of life” come against us all. Jesus chose the disciples for a grand purpose; He would not allow them to drown in the Sea of Galilee…read Mark 4:35-41. Furthermore, Jesus had a purpose for the group to get into the boat. The purpose was NOT to drown in the middle of the Sea of Galilee, but to get to the other side. So, why do you suppose these seasoned fishermen, familiar with the storms on the Sea of Galilee, were so upset that they thought they were going to drown? They forgot who they were traveling with! The Lord Jesus would not allow them to drown; they had nothing to worry about. So let me ask you, who are you traveling with? Jesus can and will calm the “storms in your life”, all you need to do is to get into the boat with Him! Amen.
A wonderful ministry, Truth for Life, shared the following comment: “Peace between good and evil is an impossibility; to pretend otherwise would signal a victory for the powers of darkness.” It was based on Revelation 12:7. Unlike the book entitled, “War and Peace”, peace is not the opposite of war; it is the opposite of threat…threat from evil. Sometimes to remove the threat, we must engage in war; there is such a thing as a “just war”.
