The Promises of God in the Wilderness

March 7, 2021

3 Things in Common 

  1. You did not choose it.
  2. It is no place you would ever have gone on your own.
  3. You are not in control.

Jesus was sleeping at the back of the boat with his head on a cushion. The disciples woke him up, shouting, “Teacher, don’t you care that we’re going to drown?”  Mark 4:38

O Lord, why do you stand so far away? Why do you hide when I am in trouble? Psalm 10:1

Wake up, O Lord! Why do you sleep? Get up! Do not reject us forever. Why do you look the other way? Why do you ignore our suffering and oppression? Psalm 44:23-24

When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Silence! Be still!” Suddenly the wind stopped, and there was a great calm. Mark 4:39

Then he asked them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?” Mark 4:40

As evening came, Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s cross to the other side of the lake.”  Mark 4:35

3 Types of Storms

  1. Storms that happen because
  2. Storms that happen because
  3. Storms that happen because
The storm was not as big to Jesus as it was to the disciples!

The disciples were absolutely terrified. “Who is this man?” they asked each other. “Even the wind and waves obey him!” Mark 4:41
