June 24, 2022 – When God Sends You Into a Storm…
Sermon: 2158 – How to Find Peace in the Midst of Your Storm
Pray Over This
“Now when evening came, His disciples went down to the sea, got into the boat, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was already dark, and Jesus had not come to them.”
It is a shallow theology that says if we’re in the will of God, we’re always going to sail smoothly on the sea of life. We’ll have no sickness, no sorrow, no disappointment, and know no separation. There’ll be no death in our families. There’ll be no problems. This is the gospel of cash, Cadillacs, and tranquility, often known as the prosperity gospel. Friend, there’s a Greek word for that and it’s baloney.
We are going to have difficulty. And the first thing you can say when difficulty comes is that God’s providence is over it all. We are governed by His providence. God’s wonderful plan is in effect, no matter what. In today’s passage, Jesus constrained the disciples to go into a storm. They were in this storm because of the providence of God.
List out truths about God that you can trust even as you face the storms of life.
