Why did Jesus calm the storms?? Just to show us he can? or to show us he can calm any storm in our life now and ALWAYS? I believe the latter is why.
I heard something recently that I believe is a "revelation and a half" from God! When we give into fears were just putting faith into the lies of the devil. We may feel giving into fears will help us be able to prepare for the worst. LIE!!! Were to have our eyes fixed on Jesus in daily trusting and daily giving thanks in all things!! And the time we need extra amounts of grace then God will supply it. Not because we're ready for it but because He is!! In our selves we can do nothing (Even as Christ admitted) but we can do all things in Christ who strengthens us!!
These truths inspire me to no end!!! Gods truth truly sets free!
