Jesus was in a boat with His disciples after a long and fruitful day of ministry. It was a perfect time to catch a quick nap and be refreshed as they crossed the Sea of Galilee. A storm came out of nowhere and begun to rock the boat. It soon became so violent the disciples thought their lives would end that day. Labouring to stay afloat, they came to grips with the fact that they needed to abandon the boat and head for the shores. This is when they remembered that Jesus was with them asleep all along. Awakened by the chaos, He commanded the storm to quieten out and the sea became as peaceful as a bath tub. The disciples had forgotten that they have had the Lord with them.
Many times we forget to activate our faith. God has started a good work in you and has equipped you the faith you need to make it through this life. You have what it takes to thrive and soar in life today. Sadly, like the disciples, we forget to activate our faith. Yes we have the faith but have not put it to work in our situations. We fight in the natural trying to make things happen yet the battle is won in the spiritual realm by faith. Let 2019 be the year when you activate your faith. Don’t just hassle in the natural. Activate that world changing, mountain moving, storm chasing faith.
SCRIPTURE READING: Mark 4:35-40
On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.” Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him. And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?” Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How [is it] that you have no faith?”
DEVOTION PRAYER: Thank you God for you have enlarged my territories and increased me greatly. I choose to step into the supernatural blessing of God by activating my faith. 2019 is my year in Jesus’ name, Amen.
