for You, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek You!"
Hey there Everyone!
I saw this awesome view ^ last weekend and it inspired today's post! This is a simple post just as a reminder that God is trustworthy with every bit of your life's details! I want to share with you a short devotional from Max Lucado titled " Do You Trust Him?" :)
"The sky is dark. Sudden waves of water tilt up our sailing vessel until we see nothing but sky and then downward until we see nothing but blue. I learned this about sailing: there is nothing swell about a swell! Eyes turned first to the thunderclouds, then to the captain. We looked to him. He was deliberate and decisive. He told some of us where to sit, others what to do, and all of us to hang on. And we did what he said. Why? We knew he knew best. Such winds test our trust in the Captain. Does God know what he’s doing? Why did he allow the storm? The conditions worsen, and his instructions perplex. How do you respond? Can you say about God what I said about our captain? I know God knows what’s best. I know I don’t. I know he cares. Do you trust him?"
Isn't that so simply true?! God brought this scripture to mind in regards to trusting Him and I just love it so much!
~Mark 4:1-2 & 35-41~
"And he began again to teach by the sea side: and there was gathered unto him a great multitude, so that he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land.
2 And he taught them many things by parables...35 And the same day, when the even was come, he
saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.
36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.
37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful?
how is it that ye have no faith?
41 And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?"
What struck me from the truth shared in Max Lucado's devotional and the verses above is to thoroughly enjoy sailing through life because God is the best Captain to ever guide you!He has ALL POWER over swells and storms! He has the power to still the storm, but He also has the power to keep us safe and at peace when He chooses not to still the storm!
BEST PART OF "SAILING" IN LIFE - IS THAT God is with us!
God bless your sailing with Him-enjoy the ride and stand in awe of His mighty power and His perfect timing in everything!
