22 Immediately after this, Jesus insisted that his disciples get back into the boat and cross to the other side of the lake, while he sent the people home. 23 After sending them home, he went up into the hills by himself to pray. Night fell while he was there alone.24 Meanwhile, the disciples were in trouble far away from land, for a strong wind had risen, and they were fighting heavy waves.

There are different periods in our lives, when God allows a calmness to rest on us and we enjoy His peace, but other times, He has us get on a boat, in the middle of the sea and all of a sudden a storm comes and upsets our situation and it makes us wonder, “where did this come from?”.

Jesus knew this was going to happen, but God is all about shaking things up. Why? Because otherwise our faith would begin to settle and become stale and stagnant, then we would be like salt without season.  No, God does not withhold every affliction from us.

The righteous person faces many troubles,
    but the Lord comes to the rescue each time.

Psalm 34:19

Have you ever made a protein shake without mixing the powder with water or milk, or threw a pack of ground meat on a skillet without breaking it up and adding some kind of seasoning to it.  Just like the protein shake and the ground meat won’t become what it was meant to be, unless certain things happen. You will not be the Christian you’re supposed to be, if God doesn’t stir you up.  You don’t need peace if there is no unrest and when we need peace, we call on Jesus.

 But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage. I am here!”

Matthew 14:27

If you don’t know Jesus as your personal Savior, then receive Him now. Your citizenship will be in heaven and you will become a child of God.

Romans 10:9-10 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. 11 As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”

SAY this beginning PRAYER:

God I’m a sinner and right now I turn from my sins. I ask you to forgive my sins, that I may be right with you. I believe that Jesus Christ: lived, died and that He rose from the dead. Right now, I ask you Jesus to be my Savior and Lord, that I may have eternal life in heaven. Thank you God for saving me. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen!

We hope today’s devotion has inspired you. We love you guys, and are constantly praying for you. Have a very blessed day.
