Have you ever encountered a LION in the middle of the road while you were on your way to do something for God? (I hate when that happens!)
Or maybe it’s a STORM that arises in an attempt to DERAIL us from our destiny.
In Mark Chapter 4, a MEGA storm was engulfing the disciples’ boat and they were all FREAKING out!
But Jesus didn’t panic.
“…He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.” Mark 4:39 (NKJV)
Have You No Faith?
When every one of the Disciples was TERRIFIED and didn’t know what to do, Jesus DID.
He SPOKE to the storm because He knew He had to CONTINUE on.
Then He asked His disciples WHY they hadn’t done the SAME thing.
“…Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?” Mark 4:40 (NKJV)
We are ALSO His disciples.
When a storm or ROADBLOCK arises in OUR path;
God EXPECTS us to SPEAK peace and continue to the other side.
Because on the other side of this temporary DISTRACTION, God has a permanent ASSIGNMENT waiting for us.
God sent Jesus to SAVE all mankind.
Believe it or not, the TASK God has for us is EQUALLY as important! Wow!!!
We can be bold! Speak to whatever storm that’s BLOCKING our way. Tell it, “PEACE…be still.”
And know that this DELAY is just a sign that God has something INCREDIBLE for us waiting on the other side!
What lions or storms have been blocking your way? Did you find something amazing waiting on the other side that you could share with us?
