JESUS Is The Answer

Matthew 8:23-27

23 Then Jesus got into the boat and started across the lake with his disciples. 24 Suddenly, a fierce storm struck the lake, with waves breaking into the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. 25 The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!”
 26 Jesus responded, “Why are you afraid? You have so little faith!” Then he got up and rebuked the wind and waves, and suddenly there was a great calm.
 27 The disciples were amazed. “Who is this man?” they asked. “Even the winds and waves obey him!”

Why is it that so many times we feel like the disciples did. Have you ever thought you were not going to make it when something big hit...or what you perceive as big! If so did you say something like..."Lord save us! We're going to drown!"? I know I have been there before...feeling alone and afraid on my own little storm tossed sea of life! Well, I have got good news for you. No matter how big you perceive the storm to be remember these things.

We have small faith sometimes...but GOD is faithful!
We feel all alone sometimes...but He will never leave us or forsake us!
We feel like the darkness is starting to swallow us up...but JESUS is the light that never sleeps!
We pray that our situation would change quickly...but be still and "know" that HE is GOD!

JESUS is the answer for all of our storm tossed seas in life. There is nothing HE is not in control of. If we really believe this we can have that deep peace in our lives that only HE can give.
JESUS whispers sweet peace to our souls. All that is required of us is that we be listening for HIS voice so we can hear HIM. HE is the Peace that passeth all understanding!

Philippians 4:7

7And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
