He is proof that we will overcome our storm(s).
.
We are all battling through some of the gnarliest days in history. Not only do we have personal battles, but we have all the unexpected encounters. The world continues to toss us to and fro.
.
The year 2020 could remain unscathed from any other year that I’ve seen or may see. Or, it may just be the start. I don’t know that I’ve ever heard of so much going on. It’s definitely historical, and we are alive to witness it.
.
Anger, arguments, frustration, contention, pain, suffering, rioting and looting. Pandemics, pestilence, tornadoes, earthquakes, fires, and floods.
.
The list just continues. During these times, my mind always goes to Christ and His Disciples on the Sea of Galilee.
.
He could have let the sea swallow them up. He could have chosen new disciples to get the job done. Why didn’t He?
.
I would assume He could do the same for the rest of us. Let us get swallowed up by the current events—some likely will, but not at His expense.
.
In essence, Jesus was testing the disciples’ faith. Just like he is testing ours now.
.
Why did Jesus walk on the water? To show His disciples that the very thing they feared, the raging sea, was simply a set of steps for Him to come to them.
.
Why did Jesus calm the sea a year earlier? Same reasons.
.
Peter and the other disciples went on their journey because the master requested it.
.
Are we, too, not on a similar journey through mortality? Is it not our response to His divine will?
.
We are in a similar situation as the disciples who were on the ship. Of course, they were aware of the dangers of traveling on the Sea of Galilee. They knew of the possibility of sudden storms. So do we!
.
Christ will come. He is building our faith, and the trials of 2020 will cease—when He is ready for them to stop!
.
It’s His will. Not ours! The master knows the tempest is raging. He is sifting to find His valiant servants. Hear him!
.

    He’s not waiting for the world to become more wicked but for his children to become more righteous. How broken do we really need to be to be humbled enough?
