Life Lessons from Driving-7
Mark 4:35 “And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.”
Mark 5:1 “And they came over unto the other side of the sea…”
In our focal scripture, the difference between Jesus and his disciples was their ability to navigate and drive in a bad weather. Bad weather is real, but when you are prepared, you will easily navigate it unscathed!
Jesus knew what to do in a bad weather; his disciples didn’t!
Mark 4:37 “And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.”
Jesus told them to cross to the other side. God was with them, but then a great storm arose threatening to drown them. In other words they ran into a bad weather.
One lesson I want us to pick up here is that because God has asked you to go on a journey and is standing by you doesn’t mean there won’t be bad weather!
If the sea was bold enough to attempt to drown Jesus, as Son of God or as God as he was, it will try you too. Contrary conditions will come up, but I am glad to let you know it cannot drown you.
Mark 4:38 “And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?”
Oh, how I love Jesus! When he told them to go on the trip, he took a pillow along! What does this depict?
It doesn’t mean you should sleep while driving…laughing. It simply means you rest in the might and the ability of the one who is with you and who has instructed you to cross over. It means totally trusting in His ability to get you safely to the other side!
Jesus took a position of rest! He knew the very first requirement for navigating a bad weather is rest!
Psalms 46:10 “Be still, and know that I [am] God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.”
