MORNING PRAYERS, Wednesday, April 1, 2020 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: DID THEY NOT KNOW
Father God, what I want is to know You and not just know about You. Amen
“One day he got into a boat with his disciples, and he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side of the lake.” So they set out, and as they sailed he fell asleep. And a windstorm came down on the lake, and they were filling with water and were in danger. And they went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we are perishing!” And he awoke and rebuked the wind and the raging waves, and they ceased, and there was a calm. He said to them, “Where is your faith?” And they were afraid, and they marveled, saying to one another, “Who then is this, that he commands even winds and water, and they obey him?” Luke 8:22-25
“Most of us know about God but how many of us really know Him.” After teaching one day, Jesus got into a boat with his disciples and went to the other side of the lake. Tired, he went down below and took a nap. Out of nowhere a violent wind storm pops up. The disciples are terrified and probably wondered how Jesus could sleep through it. You see, the storm was rocking the boat badly. A few of the disciples, rush down below and yell,"Master, Master, we're going to drown." It is obvious that they were in panic mode. Jesus woke up and rebuked the wind. Suddenly, it was calm again. Turning to the disciples, he says to them, "Where is your faith?" Had they just been going through the motions all this time? They had seen Jesus turn water into wine. They had seen Jesus raise a young man from the dead. Did they really not know him? We can ask ourselves that question as well. Do we really not understand who this Jesus that would die on a cross for us? Well, I would say that right about now, a whole lot of us feel like we are in a violent storm and some are wondering, "Where is God?" Well, God is right where He has always been. He hasn't left us. Just like Jesus rebuked the winds back then, God will rebuke this storm blown into the world. Until then, we just have to hang in there and keep the faith."
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.." John 3:16
