Text: Mark 6:45-52
In Mark 6 we find that the disciples got into a boat, at night, and went out across the sea. In their obedience to Jesus, the disciples ran directly into a storm. Their obedience literally took them into the heart of a disaster. God doesn’t bring storms into our lives to make us bitter but make us better. The enemy may use storms in an attempt to destroy us, but they are meant to deepen us and deepen our trust in the Lord. Life comes with troubles regardless of whether or not you follow Jesus. As followers of Jesus we are challenged to have faith and trust Him in the midst of the storm.
