Manna For Today: Thursday, July 6, 2017
Matthew 8:24 – Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping.
Storms are a part of life; no matter what your station is in life you will find challenges an equal opportunity employer. They will come without warning and they will be varied in type and intensity.
So what do we do? Don’t forget three (3) things when facing a storm. When the waters of your life are troubled:
1. Don’t forget where Christ is.
Joshua 1:9 – Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.
2. Don’t forget what Christ has done.
Deuteronomy 8:18 – But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.
3. Don’t forget who He is.
Matthew 28:18 – Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.”
Revelation 1:8 – “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”
John 8:36 – So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
Remember, you are loved!
Peace and blessings!
