Jesus preached the whole day to multitudes and it was evening. He told His disciples to cross to the other side. When He entered the boat, he slept since he was tired. In the sea a great storm came and hit the boat hard to a point that the disciples were scared that they’d capsize and die. But Jesus lay comfortably on the cushion (Mark 4: 35-40)
The disciples asked Jesus “don’t you care that we are in a strong storm and are about to die?” Jesus woke up and calmed the storm.
The human life is full of storms such as disease, poverty, hunger, business and marital challenges. Of course amidst the storms, we continually pray. Daniel was in similar storms where he prayed fervently but his answers were held by the demons.
In this life, when storms come, whom do we call? People place a lot of trust in many things such as children. Some people call their parents, friends, workmates, spouses and others. These people may not be useful at all times, they may not be able to handle some of the challenges. But God is able to handle any challenge if only we call upon Him. Let Jesus be your first point of call when challenges come our way since He will immediately calm the storm.
Whom do you trust? Where does your help come from. Psalms 121&124 says it comes from The Lord. God never slumbers and will never allow our feet to slump. God always observe and think of us. He’s our shelter from scorching sun, from our life’s challenges. He will never allow us to faint, or to be discouraged.
As you walk from and back to our residence, He will be with us
