Bible Reading: Mark 4:35-41
Thursday 15 April 2021 © The Upper Room.
Jesus and His disciples were in a boat. “A very bad wind came up on the lake. The waves were coming over the sides into the boat, and it was almost full of water” (verse 37). The disciples were afraid that they would drown. They did not have faith in God.
But Jesus was asleep in the boat. He was not worried. If the disciples had faith, they would have been calm like Jesus. Jesus told the wind and the water to be quiet. “Then the wind stopped, and the lake became calm” (verse 39b).
Faith means trusting God, even though we cannot understand how He will take care of us. When we have faith in God, we please Him. Hebrews 11:6a says, “Without faith no one can please God.” When we have faith, God is happy, and He gives us His blessings.
Remember that God will always be with you. Have faith in Him, no matter what you are facing today in your life. Trust God to take care of you. —JR*
Deuteronomy 7:9a “So remember that the Lord your God is the only God, and you can trust him! He keeps his agreement. He shows his love and kindness to all people.”
PRAYER: Father, I have faith that You love me and will always be with me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
