Overcoming The Storm In the Storm

According to the Gallup polls

  • People are turning from religion
  • Church attendance is declining
  • And people are losing faith

God is so loving that he dictated the past, present and future in the Bible.  As believers study the word, what we see occurring should not surprise us, as God foretold us all about it in his word.

God desires for his people not to perish, therefore he destined his Son Jesus to establish the Kingdom of God; save the lost LK 19:10, heal the sick LK 10:9, and entrusted his followers with power to tread on scorpion and serpents LK 10:19.As Jesus prepared to depart from the earth he did not divide worldly possessions as heirlooms among the disciples. But he consistently encouraged them to maintain a prayer life. 

Two memorable times before the crucifixion he advised:

1) In Matt 26:41, Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

  2) In John 17, he prays to God and states that the hour has come for them to glorify each other in the life of those who receive eternal life. Jesus is not praying for the world but for those who belong to him, and for those who accept him by their witness of him.  He prays that we will remain sanctified thru the truth of the word, and be recipient of God’s perfect love.

We all see the climate of the world as stormy.  Many believers are also experiencing personal storms: floods, tornadoes, winds, power outage, job loss, sickness and disease.   The pearls of wisdom Jesus shared are good easy to apply instructions.  In the midst of:

  • Tests: watch and pray
  • Trials: watch and pray
  • Tribulations: watch and pray
  • Persecutions: watch and pray

You might asks was Jesus ever in the midst of a personal storm while being in the midst of a world storm? Prior to his entry on the boat he was pouring out in ministry to multitudes; healing people, driving out evil spirits, and surrounded by many people. Once on the boat he feel asleep, and when the storm occurred the disciples woke him up.  Matthew 8:26, And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

Here Jesus exemplifies how to handle the storm of unbelief in the midst of a storm. He identified their lack of faith, then he rebuked the winds and sea.   Please know God loves us just the same and has entrusted us with this same power to calm every storm.
