JESUS IS WITH YOU AND HE WILL CALM THE STORM

JESUS IS WITH YOU AND HE WILL CALM THE STORM

Work can get overwhelming sometimes. Demands are made on you, left, right and center; from without and within. But Jesus wants us to know that we are not alone in those times of troubles. Jesus came to bring rest. He says so,

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28

Indeed there was an instance when the disciples were in the boat with Jesus and a storm broke out. In true human fashion, the first thing the disciples did was to fear for their lives. In fact it got so bad that they woke Him from His sleep saying,

“Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” Matthew 4:38

It is so typical that when the world comes crashing in on us, we think God does care. We feel a million miles away from God, even though the reality is that He is right there with us, literally in the same boat.

But Jesus uses even the difficult experiences, the fearful events, to teach us His ways and reveal to us the desires of His heart. He says,

“Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?” Matthew 4:40

Here Jesus shows us that the secret to having no fear is to have faith. Faith replaces Fear.

Just like a child knows that when mummy and daddy are around, no one can bully them; our Heavenly Father wants us to know that with Him around, we need not fear.

So once we are not afraid, our body’s posture changes, our pulse slows down, blood pressures go down and we become at rest. And that is what Jesus really wants for us; rest.

Beloved child of God, fall into His loving strong arms today. The world may demand, quite literally, the world, from you; but you can find all the answers, protection and provision in His arms. Look to Him today and commit all your cares into His hands and let Him calm each and every storm in your life.

Find rest in Jesus today.
