Jesus is in our Boat

Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace, be still!" And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. (Mark 4:39)

  • When the disciples were stuck in a life-threatening storm, they ran to Jesus.
  • What do we do when we are stuck in a troubling situation with nowhere to run?
  • Some of us may try to bail ourselves out of trouble by seeking revenge, slandering the one who has caused our problem, or just cowering fearfully in the corner as we sink into despair.
  • We need to learn from the disciples who fled to Jesus as their only hope.
  • Jesus may not bail us out immediately.
  • But remembering that He is in our boat makes a difference.
  • Jesus is always with us in the storms of life, saying things like “Peace, be still!”
  • Let us look for Jesus in our storm.
  • Let Him fill us with the peace that comes from knowing He is near.
  • Lord, teach us to run to You in the midst of trouble.
  • Lord, forgive us for trying to bail ourselves out.
  • Lord, lead us to the peace of trusting Your wisdom and ultimate deliverance.
  • Thank You Lord that You are always ready to help us.
  • Let us make Jesus our first option when the storms of life threaten us.
