In our opening text today, we see the Lord Jesus speaking against the raging storm encountered by His disciples as they sailed, and we do have great lessons to learn from this.
Storms are an inevitable part of life. They may come in the form of health challenges, financial struggles, or other issues that often leave us overwhelmed. While Jesus never promised a storm-free life, He assured us of His presence and power amid the storms of life (John 16:33).
Just as the disciples faced a literal tempest on the sea, you may encounter storms that shake you to your core sometimes. In such moments, remember that you are not alone, and you have in you and with you the one who has all power in heaven and on earth (Matt. 28:18). With this confidence, and the revelation of your authority in Christ, you can rebuke the devil in your situation and restore peace and order in your life (Phil 2:9-11).
Therefore, if you find yourself in the midst of a storm today, remember that you are not helpless. Do not panic or allow the devil to run rampage in your health, home, or business. Rather, nip his activities in the bud by exercising your authority in Christ. Be courageous, knowing that nothing can stand against the power in the name of our Saviour – Jesus Christ.
