Don’t Let It In

Good Morning.  Here’s Today’s Nugget to chew on:

“Don’t Let It In”

Matthew 8:23-26 Living Bible (TLB)

23 Then he [Jesus] got into a boat and started across the lake with his disciples. 24 Suddenly a terrible storm came up, with waves higher than the boat. But Jesus was asleep.

25 The disciples went to him and wakened him, shouting, “Lord, save us! We’re sinking!” 26 But Jesus answered, “O you men of little faith! Why are you so frightened?” Then he stood up and rebuked the wind and waves, and the storm subsided and all was calm.

Further Thought:  Did you notice Jesus never spoke about the storm, but He spoke to it?  He remained calm even though His disciples were in panic. Unfortunately, there is no way to live a storm-free life.  However, we can choose to follow the example of Jesus in not allowing the storms of life to get in.  Remember, according to Mark 11:23, we have been given the authority to speak to the storms of life.  So, let’s follow the example of Jesus and not be moved by what we see or feel by saying what is, but let’s continue to speak to the storms of life as they pop up, recognizing what Jesus said, we can now have what we say

Have a day, and keep chewing on God’s Word.
