Let us turn to our scripture taken from Luke 8:22-26
22 Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship with his disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side of the lake. And they launched forth.
23 But as they sailed he fell asleep: and there came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy.
24 And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master, we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm.
25 And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him.
26 And they arrived at the country of the Gadarenes, which is over against Galilee.
These disciples had seen other miracles before, but notice what they said: “What manner of man is this?” The way He intervened was unreal. They were saying, “It’s not human!” My brothers and sisters in the Lord every thing around us is real. There is nothing new under the sun. The wise man Solomon told us exactly what day we will be living in today. Don’t you doubt it for one moment. We are living in the time when we need all the intervention that is possible. You need it and so do I.
Let me ask you something: If God can control the wind and the waves, don’t you think He can control your storm? If God can alter the very laws of nature, I believe He can help me with my problems! . . . Don’t you? There is no storm too big for God to handle! Do you believe that? Even the wind recognized His authority and the storm was just a platform for Him to do His work on. Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”
I don’t understand how He does it, but God can even use the mess in my life to bring glory to Him. God desires to use everything that happens to us for our good and His glory. Do you believe that He can do that in your life? Thank God that His intervention is bigger than our storm! Oh how many times we fail and need to be dug out of our mess. This is the time to let go and let God work the intervention in your life.
Your servant and brother,
