Who is this MAN?

Mark 4:41: the disciples were terrified.  “Who is this man?”  they asked each other.  “Even the wind and waves obey Him!”  God, through the mouth of His prophet said that we could enjoy perfect peace when we focus our thoughts on HIM!  (Isaiah 26:3) This promise was spoken to Israel during a very dark time in their history.  Are you experiencing perfect peace?  What is it anyway?  Perfect peace is a condition and state of being within the soul!  It is a state of being undisturbed, at rest, and confident even through the worst storm.  It is a state of complete serenity.

Today, I will evaluate my mind and soul so that no matter what comes upon me, I will focus my thoughts on God’s Word.  I want to identify with the Man that got up and rebuked the storms, the waves, and the winds!  I want to live in that supernatural peace of God no matter what is going on.  We cannot avoid troubles and difficulties, but we can control how we respond.  Let us practice living in the peace and comfort of who we are in JESUS CHRIST!

Delayed Desire

] Proverbs 13:12 says “Hope Deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desire has come, it is a tree of life!”  Well, it is a fact and reality that life brings on disappointments.  All of us will face a delay in some desire that even God Himself has placed in our hearts!  At times we are disappointed by the circumstances of life, the faithfulness of people, and yes, even in God!  Disappointments make the heart sink down low.  Sometimes it is temporary and passing, but sometimes disappointments can affect almost every phase of our lives.

How do we handle the pain of disappointment?  First, we must go to God and tell Him!  Yes.  Although the Almighty already knows it, we must go to Him and vent!  Then we much draw near to Him and continue to hope in His word and in His faithfulness.  We must continue to believe that there is a purpose for our pain.  Once we progress in this, we will soon experience the desire that comes from trusting God.  Our scripture passage says that when the desire comes, it is a tree of life!  That means that the desire is restoration and healing from the pain.  Sometimes, the desire is not what we originally desired, but the desire in trusting God’s serenity when we hope in His love and faithfulness to always know what is best for us.

 

Many blessings to you!
