Way Maker | Miracle Worker

Mark 4:35-41That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” 36 Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?” 39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. 40 He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” 41 They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”

In the face of fear, Jesus provides peace.

Psalm 118:5When hard pressed, I cried to the Lord; he brought me into a spacious place.”

Mark 4:39He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.”

Jesus desired peace prior to the storm.

Jesus demonstrated peace in the midst of the storm.

Jesus demanded peace out of the storm.

Revelation 21:4God will wipe every tear from our eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain.”

God can use a storm as a springboard for a miracle.

God doesn’t always change our circumstance, but He can always use our circumstance.

Psalm 77:14You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.

As followers of Jesus, our confidence is not dependent on our circumstance.

Psalm 34:17-18 “The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. 18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Mark Batterson“Though fear is in the air and uncertainty is everywhere; there’s good news! The tomb is still empty! When Jesus walked out of the tomb, death was no longer undefeated. When it seems like all is lost, we go back to the empty tomb. That is where our faith is found. That is where our hope is anchored.”
