Captain of the Storm

"The Captain of the Storm" - 8/02/20

As Jesus finished teaching on a hill, His followers started to realize that Jesus was talking about a whole new way of life.  This way of life was about knowing God as Father through Jesus.  It was about praying to God for what He wanted to be done first.  It was about living without worry, because the God who provides for all certainly provides for His children.

Jesus taught His disciples to sing the song that all creation knew.  "God loves us.  He is very pleased with us."  It was the same song it had sung from the very beginning.  Now, Jesus told people about that same song.  God was going to show how much He loved them.  And through Jesus, He would make a way for His people to sing that song again!

You can sing that same song if you believe and surrender to Jesus!  Those who do sing a song of joy to their Creator, knowing that they were made to love Him. 



When Jesus finished teaching the disciples on that hill, He went back to making sad things come untrue!

Jesus is worth trusting!

On that night, the disciples sat on the newly calmed sea amazed.  Jesus had just calmed the seas with just a word.  It was almost like the clouds, wind, and waves recognized His voice.  All Jesus had to do was say, "Quiet", and they obeyed!  Who was this man, who could command the weather?

The disciples didn't know yet, but they would soon.  Jesus would show them exactly what He had come to do.  All they knew was that they had to keep following Jesus!  

Will you follow Jesus?  If He calmed the seas, He can walk beside You.  He is worth following with all that You've got!
