Mark 4:35-41 The most important thing in the life of any man is the presence of God. Exodus 33:15 anyone that travels through life without the presence of God will experience failures Psalm 31:20, Psalm 97:5.
Mark 4:26, Revelation 3:20 if you are ready to open, He is ready to come in. You may come to church but if you don’t know the God of the church you are wasting your time. Christianity is not a religion it is like a relationship. Relationship is very expensive, our relationship with Jesus cost Him his life.
You must ask yourself, what is my relationship with God.
STORM represents the troubles of life & God has guaranteed us victory. Job 14:1 being a Christian does not remove trouble but empowers us to be victorious. The storms of life are real but out God is more real.
WIND 2 Samuel 22:11, Job 1:19 wind in the Bible refers to spirit. The storm receives strength & enablement from the wind. There are several winds blowing across the world but God has given us victory. John 10:10. Jesus did not rebuke the storm, He rebuked the wind because the power driving the storm is in the wind.
PANIC the disciples panicked because
- They forgot that it was Jesus that said let’s go, Mark 4:38. Genesis 17:4
Before God will show you a tangible, visible miracle or wonder He will first give you an invincible, intangible sign. Genesis 18:14, Romans 4:18. Your circumstance must not define you.. Genesis 21:2
- They forgot He is in the same boat. If a man is sinking & he goes to sleep, it’s either he is foolish or He knows somehing you don’t know. Jesus knew that the boat could not sink, Micah 7:8. Satan can rock your boat but he cannot sink your boat. Matthew 28:20, 2 Corinthians 2:14. As long as you have Jesus in your boat you will always triumph.
- Hebrews 13:5 they forgot that Jesus who can raise the dead can still the storm. If He did before He can do it again, Proverbs 19:19, Psalm 126:1.
