Trust Him...

I love those small tid-bits we are given in scripture. The ones that we read and say 'wow', then pass on by to the next. Oftentimes, we don't take in the Awesomeness of what we have just read...we move on, because we are on a mission...get "this" many pages read today. But this morning, I read this, and I knew that God wanted me to "Selah"... (pause, take a breath and hang on to these words, carefully measuring them, running them over in my mind)...these are my words for today.

"Now on one of those days Jesus and His disciples got into a boat, and He said to them, "Let us go over to the other side of the lake." So they launched out. But as they were sailing along He fell asleep; and a fierce gale of wind descended on the lake, and they began to be swamped and to be in danger. They came to Jesus and woke Him up, saying, "Master, Master, we are perishing!" And He got up and rebuked the wind and the surging waves, and they stopped, and it became calm. And He said to them, "Where is your faith?" They were fearful and amazed, saying to one another, "Who then is this, that He coammands even the winds and the water, and they obey Him?" ~ Luke 8:22-25

Selah.....and WOW.

Now you try it, you go outside during a storm and tell it to stop...yeah,...that's what I thought. How easily we read over these words, but stop, take it you feel that POWER? We are often afraid and concerned that He can't or won't handle something in our lives? A raging storm seems uncontrollable, who could fathom telling wind and rain and crashing waves to stop? It seems unreal, but we read it here in God's Word, so we KNOW it's real, that is His power - so awesome and huge!

What storm do you have in your life? A wayward child? An aching heart? A debilitating illness? An unsaved neighbor? Something that is just uncontrollable when it sits in your hands? Place in the hands of our beautiful Savior, Jesus Christ, NOTHING is uncontrollable for Him. He has the power, He will use it as He sees fit. Our job? Trust Him.

Have a beautiful day!
