“Even the wind and the waves obey him!” Mark 4:41.

Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading; Numbers 17-18, Psalm 129, and Mark 4.

Today’s verse was the reaction of the disciples to the time Jesus calmed the Sea of Galilee.

Why would they react with such wonder?  Hadn’t they already seen Him do miracles?

It was the novelty that got them awestruck.  If they were on water in the future and a storm came up they would have the remembrance of a previous lake-calming to go by.

In my life I often push God out of the picture in some areas.  My thinking is that the faced trouble is not found dealt with in Scripture.  So, I make the same mistake the disciples did: I assume, by my actions, that it is something He can’t handle.  Silly me!

God, the Creator, is never out of His element.  He’s in charge of everything.  Read early Genesis to get an idea of what He’s done.  He’s not restricted.

I can turn every trouble to Him with confidence.  When I ignore Him, I elevate someone else other than Him.  That would be Satan.  Why go there.  I must continue to put my whole life into the hands of God and live that out every second.

“I need You every second.  Forgive me for elevating troubles above You.  I cling to You for guidance.  I thank You for Your Peace.  I love You, Lord.”

Where are you acting as if God can’t help?
