Rock the Boat – Jesus Can Get You Out of ANY Trouble!

When evening came, his disciples went down to the lake, where they got into a boat and set off across the lake for Capernaum. By now it was dark, and Jesus had not yet joined them. A strong wind was blowing and the waters grew rough.

When they had rowed three or three and a half miles, they saw Jesus approaching the boat, walking on the water; and they were terrified. But he said to them, “It is I; don’t be afraid.” Then they were willing to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat reached the shore where they were heading.

(John 6:16-21)

—-

The disciples were in a rough, hard, and terrifying situation… being out there on that dark night all by themselves on the Sea of Galilee.

I can imagine the reaction of the disciples when they looked up…. and saw Jesus walking across over 3 miles of water and reaching them.

We all have “Seas of Galilee” in our lives, whether it is financial in nature… whether it is in our relationships… whether it is in your health… we all have “rough & choppy” seasons in our lives where we can’t seem to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Jesus showed his disciples a few things that I believe that we can all learn from.

What Jesus proved to them in that circumstance was two-fold:

(1)  There is NO problem too big for Jesus — After all, he walked across three miles of water… he created the whole earth & the fullness of it all, so that means there is NOTHING we can go through that is too big for him!

(2) Welcome Jesus into your problems — After the disciples welcomed Jesus into the boat, the Bible says the disciples “immediately” reached their destination. When we welcome Jesus into our problems, issues, and circumstances; we can EXPECT him to get us to that light at the end of a long tunnel!

When you put your trust in the Lord and put all your faith & troubles on Him.. He WILL by all means get you through the rough and choppy turns of life.

Be blessed today and walk in God’s abundance today!

Did You Know that You are a KING?

Did you know that regardless of who you are… or what station you are at in life… and no matter what line of work or business you’re in… do you know that you are a KING in God’s eyes?

Consider the following declaration to us:

“…and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth… To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood… and has made us KINGS and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen!” (Revelation 1:5, 6 – NKJV)

While it may be hard for some to grasp this notion of kingship, you are in fact ROYALTY on this earth… and you have certain unalienable rights that are granted to you from the King of kings, Jesus Christ! The Bible says in another place that you are a “…chosen person, a royal priesthood, a peculiar person to God! ” (1 Peter 2:9)

So what does it mean to be a king (or a queen – for you ladies out there reading this) under Christ Jesus?

It means that you are to walk, speak, and ACT like you have dominon, influence, and power over every aspect of your life. Anything that is a part of this earth… you have the authority to control (except people). You have the authority to do this by your King, who said, “Greater works than me shall you do!” (John 14:12)

When problems arise at your job or place of business… or perhaps in your finances… command them to act right. DO what you can do in your own power to solve the issues… and EXPECT God to honor the dominion that He has given you over the earth and complete what you cannot.

Have you EVER seen a broke or poor King? No, you haven’t… so why should you be broke, poor, or destitute if God has commanded you to be a King? Even if you don’t even have a nickel in your pocket… get it implanted in your mind and your spirit that you are WEALTHY, and the question for you won’t be ‘If I can ever get wealthy”… it’ll be ‘When I get wealthy!”

If you or your loved ones encounter sickness, disease, or accidents… no matter how life threatening it is… KNOW that you have dominion over it. Jesus walked around COMMANDING these things… and you can too, as long as you BELIEVE. Command sickness to bow down… command diseases to bow down… command ailments to bow down… command depression to bow down in the name that is above every name, JESUS.

Your emotions are subject to you. Any poor or negative attitudes are subject to you. Even addictions are SUBJECT to you! You tell them what to do… and not the other way around.

Remember this friend… you ARE a King, without any doubt… and there is no arguement about it. If you believe that Jesus is your Lord, and that God has raised him from the dead… you are a King. So this day, don’t walk with your head down, but hold it up high. Don’t walk in fear and anxiety… but walk in faith and excitement.

Why? Because this is the day the Lord has made for YOU… so start walking like you own some stuff and like your important!

The GREATEST Law in the Universe!

I sincerely believe that one of the greatest barriers that many of us have when it comes to God, church, and spiritual things… is that we tend to follow a RELIGION, rather than have a RELATIONSHIP with God.

I may step on a few toes with this one and lose a few members off of this Facebook group or the blog… but hey, I was NEVER one to conform.  (o:

Simply put, religion is man’s search for God. Religion gives you a long list and set of burdensome, complex rules that you MUST follow or your salvation is at risk. Religion tells you don’t do this, don’t do that, wear these type of clothes or you’rr unholy… act this way or you’re unacceptable to the Almighty.

Basically put, religion tells you what to do to “look like and sound like” you are a godly person in other people’s eyes. Religion puts you into “shackles” and keeps you weighted down in fear on a daily basis… because you think that you might “slip up” and fall out of God’s favor.

Relationship with our heavenly Father, on the other hand… is what we MUST seek in order to have a fullness of life. Relationship means that you know God, you talk to Him, you listen to Him, you confide in Him, and you TRUST Him.

Relationship allows you to come to God, just as you are… with no condemnation. Relationship allows us to come to God, as messed up as we are… and on a daily basis, allow His power to change us on the inside, for the better.

True relationship with your Heavenly Father doesn’t tell you that you can’t eat this, or you can’t wear that, or you must worship God on certain days, and relationship does NOT tell you that you must perform certain rituals in order to remain in God’s grace. Relationship sets you free in life, “…for whom the Son (Jesus) sets free… is free indeed!” (John 8:36)

That said, the GREATEST law in the universe is this: LOVE.

Without love, there is NO relationship!

Consider this: Jesus was once asked by the Jewish teachers of his day, what is the greatest commandment. Out of the 613 laws and customs that the Jews had back in their day… Jesus was challenged to pick the best one.

His answer was this: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” (Matthew 22:34-40)

When you walk in love… you have fulfilled ANY commandment that there is. Love does not allow you to steal, because you respect the other person’s property. Love does not allow you to murder… because you honor that person’s life. Love does not allow you to cheat on your husband or wife… because you respect the sanctity of your marriage and your spouse’s feelings.

Love does not allow you to talk and gossip about people behind their backs… because you respect their feelings. Love does not allow you to hate or forget about God… because you honor the fact that He fearfully and wonderfully made you.

Love allows you to apologize when you are in the wrong… and even at times when you are in the right, just so you can make peace with your brother or sister.

Love allows you to go that extra mile for somebody else… even if they don’t “deserve” another second of your time.

Love allows you to see the good in people… rather than ONLY seeing their flaws and weaknesses.

Love does NO harm, love does NO evil, love does NO wrong, and love does NO damage!

This week remember this: A relationship with God is based on what you SHOULD do, rather than what you can’t do. And what you should do, is walk in love. Be blessed this week friend and keep on inviting your friends to join the group if you like what you receive each week… we are getting close to the 500 member mark!

If you have any remarks or comments to this post… feel free to put it on the blog below. Be blessed and walk in God’s abundance for your life today!
