I feel this is a question God would probably need to ask me every so often. As I journey in this life of faith, missing out on what He said is a major possibility.
In Luke chapter 8, we find the story of Jesus calming the storm.
Right before they got onto the boat to go to the other side of the lake, Jesus said,
“Let’s go over to the other side of the lake.” (Luke 8:22)
How important was that statement? Very…
Once the squall came, we find the disciples panicking while Jesus was sleeping.
Too often we find ourselves panicking when squalls come. But if we listen to what He said, then maybe, just maybe we won’t find ourselves in a panic.
“Let us go over the other side of the lake.”
He didn’t say ‘let’s go under’. He didn’t say, ‘see you in heaven.’ Neither did He say, ‘It was great to have met you guys.’
He said let us go over the other side.
His next question was, “Where is your faith?” (Luke 8:25)
Another mistake we often commit – our eyes on our circumstances rather than on the God of the circumstances.
Lord, teach us to rest on who You are and what You’ve said in Your Word.
