Outline For Scripture Union Daily Guide 11 January 2023
The disciples had complete faith in Jesus. They were not only going at His command but with Him actually in the boat with them. Yet, they ran into a huge and scary storm! Whoever we are and whatever our station in life, we will always encounter storms of one type or another. Sometimes these storms are caused by our own faults, but often they are purely caused by the enemy of our soul.
Regarding the storms of life, we have two things going for us as children of God. First is that we can rest assured, on the basis of the word of God, that the storm is not big enough to drown us (1 Corinthians 10:13). Second, is that there is a sure and certain formula for dealing with them, and it is the same whatever may be the cause of the problem. The answer is first to ensure our ready access to Jesus Christ with no unconfessed sin in our life and then to take the matter to Him, if necessary, with the support of other praying friends.
Unlike the experience of the disciples, we shall never find that He is asleep (Psalm 121:4)!
