Other Little Ships 3

"Here in this story (Mark 4:35-41) you have the foresight of knowing what happened, but even if you do not know what is about to happen, if God called you to go over to the other side with Him, your spirit would accept, because your spirit trusts that whatever God says will come to pass, and hopefully, just like with the disciples, they went and you will go too.

But the disciples didn't know what was to come and in your life and in your own stories, you don't know what is to come either.

Did Jesus know what was about to happen?
Does Jesus know what is going to happen in your life?
Did Jesus know that the ship would be filled with water when He called them to pass over to the other side?
Did Jesus know that the storm was coming?
Did Jesus warn the disciples that the storm was coming?

If Jesus calls you to go somewhere or to do something, does that mean that it will always be a cushy/comfortable ride?

Does it mean that there will be no difficulties? - no problems? - no impending peril?

When Jesus call you to something - it's not about how easy it is or how safe it is or how protected you are - If Jesus calls you He is going with you and that is where you need to put your faith.

Please get this, because this goes against much of today’s modern thought about how God operates in our lives.  The Word is trying to teach us about where we find ourselves when Jesus calls and how we handle our situations when we are tested.
