TOPIC: THE STORM STILLER

READ: Mark 4:35-41 (KJV)
Open Heaven Devotional 7th March 2023 MESSAGE:
A storm is a problem so big and weighty that no one can single-handedly resolve it. However, storms can be stilled, and from my study of the Scriptures, such an occurrence is the result of a collaboration between God and man.
When a storm was brewing at the wedding in Cana of Galilee, there was a need for the servants to collaborate with Jesus in order to still it (John 2:1-10). If they had argued about pouring water inside a pot and taking a cup of it to the Chairman of the wedding, the storm would not have been stilled.
When the prophet’s widow in (2 Kings 4:1-7) was hit with a storm that would have taken away her sons, she was told to borrow many empty vessels into which she was to pour her little oil. That instruction did not make any sense but she did her part by obeying and God did His by multiplying the oil. If you can collaborate with God, He can help you still any storm.

Some years ago while preparing for a programme in the North, I was told how the sandstorms there could get so bad that there would be no visibility at all. I said, “I see”. That evening, while holding the programme outside as the crowd was too much for the little Church, a sandstorm suddenly started and people began to panic. I then heard my Father say to me, “Stretch your hand and say, ‘Peace’”. I did just that and immediately, the wind stopped, the sand fell back to the ground and we had a wonderful programme.
In Mark 4:35-41, the Lord and His disciples were travelling in a boat when a storm arose. The Lord got up and stilled the storm, but then asked, “Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?”
Is there a storm in your life that has threatened you for long? The question for you is, “How is it that you have no faith?” Don’t you know that, if you would only collaborate with God, you would still that storm? Go to God in prayer and stay in His presence until He tells you what to do to still that storm. A man or woman of God should not be frightened by a storm. He or she should simply speak peace to the storm in the name of Jesus and it would become still.
Father, please tell me what to do to still this storm (mention the storm) in my life and family, in Jesus’ name.
