Trusting God’s Words

Will you trust God’s words? 

In Mark 4 we find the story of what happened in the little boat where Jesus and His disciples were caught in a storm at sea. In verse 35 we read: “On that day, when evening came, He said to them, ‘Let us go over to the other side.’” In other words, He was saying, “Gentlemen, get in the boat. Guess where we are going? All the way over to the other side.” Jesus had a plan.

But when the storm blew in, we know what happened.

But when the storm blew in, we know what happened. The challenging circumstances caused the disciples to forget what He had said. Before they even started on their journey and before the storm had risen up to threaten them, they already had a promise—they would arrive on the other side.

Yet instead of trusting in Jesus, they started worrying. “We’re not going to make it!” “We are going to die!” Their circumstances took precedence over the promise of His Word. We face the same temptation. Our circumstances breed fear within us. They loom so large in our sight that we decide that we aren’t going to make it to the other side.

But how did Jesus respond to this fearsome situation? 

But how did Jesus respond to this fearsome situation? 

He was asleep in the back of the boat. He wasn’t worried. He was calm. He was at rest in the middle of the storm. So, you and I can rest in Him. We can be confident that He will see us through the storm and safely to the other side.
