There are days when i feel the weight on my shoulders. On those days, i find myself prayer just a little more harder and listen just a little more attentively to the voice of God. On those days, I need (trust) the Lord to get me thru to the other side.
Today is definitely not one of those days. Yes, I have quite a few uncertainty in my life and yes, I find myself at times alone and confused. But today I have a very say calm about life and about myself. I have felt it before and I know that its a feeling from the Holy Spirit. In my heart i feel that “everything will be alright for i am in control”. I acknowledge that and thank you lord for it. In Jesus Name, Amen -PJSLB
Mark 4:35-41 New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Calms the Storm
35 That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” 36 Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”
39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.
40 He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”
41 They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”
“Sun, stand still over Gibeon, and you, moon, over the Valley of Aijalon” (Joshua 10:12). God not only heard Joshua’s prayer, He answered it, delaying the setting of the sun for a full day.
“Do not be afraid of them; I have given them into your hand” (Joshua 10:8)
What is your God-sized prayer? Will you believe with me today we have a God who can do the impossible?
The picture and the excepts above are from the daily devotional First 5. I first wrote about first 5 as i was explaining the typical walk with Christ in a day. If you are searching for daily inspiration or just want to read more about the wonder of our God, first5 is a solid place to start. Have a great day and God Bless us all!!! – PJSLB
