Jesus said, “Let us go over to the other side of the lake.” Mark 4:35
Did He know they would encounter a storm? Of course He did. It must have been quite a storm, because even these seasoned fishermen feared for their lives. Just because you’re in Jesus’ boat doesn’t mean that it’s going to be smooth sailing. This storm did not hit the disciples because they had been disobedient but, rather, because they had been obedient. But He never for a moment left them.
Nothing is too difficult for the living God. Not a breath of wind or a drop of water can defy His sovereign will. If He said, I will take to the other side, He will take you there. No storm can keep you out of His will, away from His plan. On the contrary it will hasten you to the place of your destiny. The bigger the storm, the more the Lord will be glorified when we trust Him.
