Do we know whom we serve? Take time to read the scriptures before reading this post.
God will speak to us and tell us to go according to his purpose and will for our lives. When we go we find ourselves facing a storm that we weren't expecting. Many times we find ourselves facing fierce storms in our lives. We found ourselves broken into pieces and needing to be put back together again. Life’s problems have swamped us and we find ourselves drowning in fear, sadness, depression, hopelessness, and pain. We start to feel that God has left us to drown in our misery.

Before the storm we never thought to call on his name but in the storm after we tried to fix it ourselves we then decide to call on Jesus. We ask the same question that the disciples asked in verse 38 “Teacher! Don’t You care that we’re going to die?”
In this moment we find that our faith is small because of the question we ask. Jesus gets up, rebukes the wind and speaks to the sea. We must understand that we will go through storms in our lives but know that we serve a God that has authority even over the winds and the sea.

We must put all our trust in God. No matter the storm you are going through God we calm the storm. God tests us when we through storms to strengthen our faith in him only. There is no need to fear the storm because we serve a God of authority. God is always with us, his presence is everywhere.

We are the ones that leave God and cling to the things of this world. What we find is that the world offers only temporary satisfaction.  God wants the best for his children. The enemy has already lost the battle. The enemy will have no dominion over your life. When you hear God’s voice calling your name, it’s time to come back to the Master and surrender all to him. Time is winding up and the end is almost near. We all want to be ready before God calls us home!

Prayer: Lord we thank you for this day. Thank you Lord for your word that inspires us to keep pressing forward. Lord, we even that you for the storms in our lives that draw us closer to you. We know that we must realize that when you tell us to go, that you will be with us all the way.  You will calm the storm after while. Lord we love you more than anything. In Jesus name, Amen!
