How Can You Say God is the Captain of Your Life,

If You Can't Make It Through the Storm?

 

According to the dictionary, the word storm means a disturbance of the atmosphere marked by wind and usually by rain, snow, hail, sleet, or thunder and lightning.

 

Therefore you can see a storm is the state of being disturbed or agitated. The disturbances and agitation Christians go through are known as temptations, which we must endure to receive the crown of life - James 1:12

 

Examine the storm that Jesus and His disciples went through to help us learn how to make it through the storm - Luke 8:22-25

 

How Can You and I Make Sure We Make It Through the Storm?

 

When you go through a storm and you find yourself in jeopardy, and the threat of danger is near, you should not become fearful or be afraid as long as God is the captain of your life - Psalm 27:1-4; Psalm 46:1

 

Make sure you put all your trust in God - Proverbs 3:5-6

 

You need to realize, in all circumstances of your life, no matter how big or small, that God is able to deliver you just as Jesus delivered His disciples from the wind storm and the raging waters, and said "…Peace be still." - Mark 4:39

 

To make it through the storm, your faith in Jesus Christ must grow from infancy to maturity. In a number of instances in the gospel books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, you can see the Apostle’s faith was initially weak, but in time their faith grew. After Jesus calmed the Sea He asked His disciples, where is your faith? - Luke 8:25

 

Let us be encouraged to add to our faith that we will be able to get through the storm - 2 Peter 1:5-11

 

Are you having a hard time getting through the storm? Ask God to increase your faith in Him.

 

When Jesus told His Apostles to forgive his brother when he trespasses against him and come repenting, the Apostles requested that the Lord increase their faith - Luke 17:5

 

Begin to make God the Captain of your life by accepting the Salvation that He offers:  Hear - Believe - Repent - Confess - Be Baptized
