The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

Trial In The Storm

“. . . the boat was already a long distance from the land, battered by the waves; for the wind was contrary.” Matthew 14:24 (NASB)
In experiencing this storm at sea, the disciples discovered that obedience to the Lord is no immunity from the storms of life. Though they obey Christ’s orders (Matt. 14:22), still a storm descended upon the sea; and, as a result, the boat was “battered by the waves; for the wind was contrary.”
Many winds in this world are contrary to doing the will of God. No one who sets out to do the will of God will be long without experiencing the trials of “contrary” circumstances that will hinder and oppose one’s obedience to the Lord. The devil will see to that.
Though the path of obedience may be rough at times, Jesus will be there to calm the storm; “He came to them, walking on the sea” (Matt. 14:25). Christ is the One who can bring real tranquility in the time of trial.

  1. Holding on to this: “Many winds in this world are contrary to doing the will of God. No one who sets out to do the will of God will be long without experiencing the trials of “contrary” circumstances that will hinder and oppose one’s obedience to the Lord. The devil will see to that.” because it’s so true and we tend to forget this reality. Thanks for the reminder.
