  • 30 Day Jesus Challenge: Day 22 – He’s in the boat with me

“As evening came, Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s cross to the other side of the lake.” So they took Jesus in the boat and started out, leaving the crowds behind (although other boats followed). But soon a fierce storm came up. High waves were breaking into the boat, and it began to fill with water. Jesus was sleeping at the back of the boat with his head on a cushion. The disciples woke him up, shouting, “Teacher, don’t you care that we’re going to drown?” When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Silence! Be still!” Suddenly the wind stopped, and there was a great calm. Then he asked them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?” The disciples were absolutely terrified. “Who is this man?” they asked each other. “Even the wind and waves obey him!””
‭‭Mark‬ ‭4‬:‭35‬-‭41‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Life Application Bible Notes: Mark 4:38-40 The disciples panicked because the storm threatened to destroy them all and Jesus seemed unaware and unconcerned. They faced a physical storm, but storms come in other forms too. Think about the storms in your life—the situations that cause you great anxiety. Whatever your difficulty, you have two options: You can worry and panic and assume that Jesus no longer cares, or you can resist fear, putting your trust in him to be by your side and to help. When you feel like panicking, confess your need for God and then trust him to take care of you.

When Jesus is in the boat… you can rest.
