Faith? – Yes! Committed? – For sure! Trust Jesus to save? – Oh Yeah! Goal of life to submit to Jesus as Lord? – Absolutely!
But what about when we hit those big bad bumps in the road of life that rock our entire world and we discover we’re not as strong as we thought we were? Then what’s a Christian going to do? Answer: Cry out to Jesus. Jesus knows what it’s like to suffer – He knows what it’s like to be betrayed – He knows what it’s like to have everyone desert Him – He even knows what it’s like to die. But Jesus rose from the dead and is alive, seated at the right hand of God interceding for us. Cry out to Jesus. Don’t be ashamed to be weak before Him as you cling to Him for survival. He will make you strong. And Jesus will give us peace and will always act in our lives according to the Father’s will in agape love. Read Matthew 8:23-27 and John 14:6-14
Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.” Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves. Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
