Text: Mark 4:35-41, Matthew 8:23-27
What is a Storm? Storm is a violent disturbance of the atmosphere with strong winds and usually rain, thunder, lightning or snow. It is a tumultuous reaction; an uproar or controversy. It is commotion, trouble, brouhaha, hue, upheaval and disturbance. To calm means not disturbed, completely motionless, tranquility or serenity. This means that whenever you want to take any major decision in life there must be a challenge or problem and we should allow Jesus to take control. This passage tells us about our position as Christians. We are not really sure of the person inside of us, we still fear despite the fact that we claim to have Jesus in us. When Jesus gave order to go to the other side Matthew 8:18, He knew the storm was coming John 2:25. The Lord never promised we will never see storm in life ( as a matter of fact, He has told us to expect trouble, John 16:33. Rather, He has promised to be with us in the storm. He will never leave his children alone in the midst of trouble, with perseverance, they will overcome Deuteronomy 31:8, James 1:12. Being a Christian does not exempt us from storm of life. The fact that we are Christians do not insulate us from going through difficulties.
