All About GOD - Growing Relationships with Jesus and Others

In Mark 4:35-39, Jesus and the disciples were going to the other side of town. They decided to take Jesus along with them in their own boat and the bible recorded that other (little) boats followed them. Then violent storms arose; almost drowning the boat until Jesus stilled the waves. Needless to say the disciples were terrified. 

We do not have records that the other boats were attacked by the fierce winds because if they had been attacked, the bible would have mentioned there were causalities or better still, that Jesus rebuked the storm for them too. Most likely, the smaller boats that followed were spared; yet all the boats including the one Jesus and His disciples rode in were on the same water. Which boats should drown faster if it was a general storm, shouldn't it be the smaller ones?……( I doubt they were attacked). The devil came against the boat which had Jesus on it. 

What you carry determines the ferocity of what the devil hurls at you. He isn't happy you are born again to start with ,and then to say you are serving Christ passionately (carrying Jesus in your boat) makes you an object of his fury. Your destiny is so much of a threat to the devil; he is scared and terrified , hence he is roaring against you in whatever way he can. Don’t be distracted: because the Saviour is in your boat, as long as you keep Him involved, you won’t drown; He will command silence to the waves and you will be more than a conqueror. 

You will get to your destination!

Bible Reference: 

Mark 4: 35-41

35On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.” 36Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him. 37And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. 38But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?”
39Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. 40But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful?How is it that you have no faith?” 41 And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!”
