Have you ever asked this question? I know I have. Especially when I faced financial hardship and I was doing God’s will.
When facing difficulties, we want answers…to understand, to give meaning and purpose, and to somehow find comfort.
Where do you go when you are in the midst of a challenging situation? What or Who do you turn to?
I believe our real question when we are going through a hard situation is:
“Lord, do you love me?”
“If you love me, why don’t you do something about it?”
We will look at Jesus and the disciples in the boat in the storm, and what we can learn from this situation.
Mark 4: 35-41
We must learn to rightly divide the Word of Truth. How to connect the dots of Scripture.
- God’s Word is true. Jesus is the Word and He is Faithful & True! He is in your boat!
- Isaiah 55:11-12
- Psalm 46:1-3, 10
- Matthew 6:33
- Enemy is opposing you and He is the accuser of God’s Character, God’s love for you and who you are in Christ.
- Your faith will be tested and your circumstances will appear bigger than you can handle. James talks about faith being tested but also says that God cannot be tested with evil. God is not the source of your storm, but the answer!
Our faith will be tested so we know what has been deposited in us, to grow and mature. Circumstances will always appear bigger than you can handle. God is the answer and with Him, miracles happen.
Romans 8:28-31 all things work together for our good…and the purpose is to be conformed to the image of Christ. To be imitators of Jesus.
