Jesus stood up and gave a command to the wind and the water. He said, "Quiet! Be still!" Then the wind stopped, and the lake became calm. (Mark 4:39 ERV)
Imagine the power of God that He spoke to the wind and it obeyed Him. Even the disciples said in vs 41 said, “What kind of man is this? Even the wind and the water obey Him.” They were with Him and yet they still did not understand completely who they were with. Imagine the power and the awesomeness of what was happening.
Now that you can imagine the awesomeness of what the disciples experienced, imagine what it is like today with Jesus in your boat. There would be unbelievable things happening; and wow just being with Jesus. Look at all of the things that happened whenever Jesus was anywhere near a boat. He calmed the seas, Peter walked on water, and there were more fish than the nets could hold and so on. Our lives are in desperate need of the Jesus in the boat theory. With Jesus in your boat the possibilities of tremendous miracles are unlimited.
With Jesus in your boat you will be walking side by side with the master. You have been given the same authority of Jesus and nothing will be impossible for you. Jesus even said these things I do you too will do but even greater. Jesus calmed the storm with authority and the words, Be Still. You have been given the authority to speak to the storms in your life with that very same authority. In the name of Jesus speak it and say, Be Still. One of the main reasons we don’t succeed at this authority is because we maybe have tried it once and the storm continued. The storm continued because of our lack of faith.
I remember a time I spoke to my storm and absolutely nothing happened and maybe the winds picked up even more. My storm seemed to go from storm to disaster and it was almost enough to devastate me. Then I heard a voice that told me not to give up, to press in and call out with the Name of Jesus. I did and in a very short time, what I classed as a disaster was nothing more than a passing breeze. Of course it has not always worked that way with me because for some reason I keep forgetting what God has said. One day I will get it right but until then I will continue to press in and not give up.
With Jesus in our boat we have the reassurance of protection and peace in the midst of a storm. Jesus is there and He is looking to help us if we will only call out on Him. We need to put our faith to work in our lives and not be afraid. Jesus asked the disciples what are you afraid of and then He spoke, Be Still. What are you afraid of? Are you afraid of the storm that you may be capsized and be lost, or are you just afraid because you do not know? Whatever it is, with Jesus in your boat you have nothing to fear and you can look at your storm and speak as Jesus, BE STILL!
An Evangelist called to preach the gospel all over the world. To lay hands on the sick and to prophecy to everyone. Reaching out to the world that all may be saved.
