《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”” (Mar 4:39-40)
Meditation one: Is your life facing a “furious squall” like a sinking boat? It is not a right time for you to analyze the intensity and destructive power of the squall but to turn to Jesus Christ in time and rely on Him. Why not quickly wake up Jesus on the boat? Only He can calm the waves and give you true peace. Because He is the Lord of all things in heaven and earth, everything is subject to Him.
Meditation two: Is the foundation of your faith solid? Only through squalls, sufferings, blows, and trials, we can grow and mature. Faith depends not on feelings, or self, or people, or the environment but relays only on the Lord. Seize the words of the Lord, and obey Lord’s words.
Prayer: Abba Father, thank You for being my very present help in trouble. I know that life cannot get away from suffering, danger, and failure, but I believe that as a child of God, He will never abandon me as an orphan. With Your presence, what am I afraid of. With Your presence, I can even proudly laugh at the waves. Lord, I confess that once in a while my faith is insufficient. Please increase my faith. I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus. Amen!
