At the end of Mark 4 we see Jesus and His disciples crossing the sea to go to the other side.
This is what Jesus had commanded and this is what He intended.
However a storm arose, making the disciples fear for their lives, but when Jesus woke up He calmed the storm.
This is a picture showing us that Jesus can calm storms; He does not send them.
Jesus is the solution to deal with a storm; He is not the sender of storms.
This is contrary to much of what we hear in church today, but it is the truth.
Yes, we are told there will be trials and temptations (or storms) in our lives.
But it is a tradition of men and a lie of the enemy that these storms are sent by God.
When Jesus got into the boat the plan was to go to the other side; why would He (or God) send a storm to try and stop this?
He did not send the storm then and He does not send the storms now.
Above all else God wants us to live in health and prosperity (3 John 2); storms are trying to remove these good things from us.
God is not schizophrenic or perverse; that is what He would need to be in order to send storms and then help clear them up.
God sending storms is a religious nonsense, spread by people who are not rightly dividing the Word of God.
A true understanding of the Word leads us to know that God is s good God and can only send us good things (James 1 v 17).
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you are a good God and thank you that I can know the storms of this life are not orchestrated by You”.
Mark 4 v 39…..And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm
