How are you Sleeping?

13 Aug

God’s Word: Mark 4:35-41

God’s Message to me: (My interpretation of what God is saying in these verses)

When the storms of life are raging how do you sleep? Jesus sleeping Take a lesson from what Jesus did during a storm at sea.  He laid his head on a pillow and slept right through it.  That is, He tried to sleep through it.  His anxious disciples work him up saying “Don’t you care that we are all going down?”  Jesus reluctantly woke up and calmed the storm—which totally amazed them.  Goodness!  Wouldn’t they think that one who could raise the dead and heal diseases could also calm the storms?

What about you?  How do you respond when the storms of life threaten to take you down?  Do you become a coward—and lose your faith?  You must remember that Jesus is asleep in your boat.  He woke up and was ready to help his disciples so He will surely care for you also.  Give Him the respect and honor of calling on him when your faith is thin.  Don’t ignore your salvation until the storm is passed.  Call out during the storm when the threat is real and valid.

Jesus could sleep through the storm because He knew who was in control.  What about you?  What or who give you peace in the midst of the storms of life?  And what about those near you?  They have storms of life also and they also need someone to call out to.  Have you shared the source of eternal salvation with them?  To be grateful to the One who has saved you from life’s storms is demonstrated when you reach out to others going through the storms.  Wake up! Be alert and ready to calm the storms people are fighting.  I am ready with My army of angels to assist you carry out these marching orders from Jesus.

God’s Question: When you encounter someone sinking in despair will you offer to be their life-vest to salvation through Christ?

God’s Promise: Whatever storms you may face—I am there with you.

My Prayer to God:

I Praise You for this comfort in the midst of our life storms.

I am Sorry I don’t offer life-saving salvation more often.

Thank You for staying on guard so we can sleep in peace.

Please help me be a comfort to others in life’s storms.
