Wrestling with Truth — November 4, 2012

Lesson from Luke 8:22-25:

The wind lashed the sea.  White caps were forming.  The disciples were rowing with all their might and still the boat listed dangerously in the choppy waters of the Sea of Galilee.  It was dark and the shoreline seemed a moving target in the far distance.  In spite of their years of experience, fear filled their hearts.  Yet their master calmly slept, resting on a cushion down in the boat out of the wind.

Still they persevered.  After all, several of them were fisherman by trade.  They knew these waters well.  They had survived numerous storms in the past. . . .  just a little more effort, just a little more care, just a little more skill!  And then a huge wave crashed in upon them, threatening to capsize their boat.

“Master, Master, we’re going to drown!”

Have you been there?  You have fought valiantly to bring order into the chaos of your life, but in a moment of great need panic set in and you realized nothing you could do would solve the problem.  Look to the Master; look to Jesus, the Son of God!

For those disciples two thousand years ago, he rebuked the winds and raging waters and the storm subsided.  He will do the same for you.  Trust Jesus.  He is bigger than your biggest crisis.  In Him there is no fear for He is master of all things and all situations.  He is enough.  Trust and believe.
