Daily Bible Reading: Mark 4:21 – 41
Verse of the Day: Mark 4:38 – “And he himself was in the stern, asleep on the cushion: and they awake him, and say unto him, Teacher, carest thou not that we perish?”
Have you ever been in this situation? All of life around you is in an uproar. You are being tossed and turned in all directions. You are sure that any moment will be the final one. And, then you look toward your Lord. And He appears to be asleep. You cry out – Don’t You care if I perish!?
Well, understand that going through this storm, Jesus could sleep because He had full trust in His Father. Did He care for the disciples? More than we can ever imagine. But, He was in full control of the situation and the outcome.
This same Jesus is the One who holds our situations and outcomes in His hand today. When it gets rough, trust the One who can grant the perfect outcome.
Prayer: Father, I often worry way too much. I show my lack of trust and faith – as recorded in Your Word, help my unbelief. Amen.
