When evening had come, He said to them, “let us cross over to the other side.” Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was… And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?” Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. But He said to them, “why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?” Mark 4:35-40 NKJV

Faith which is absolute confidence in the Word of God and His abiding presence with you is all that you need to navigate through the journey ahead of you this month and rest of the year. No doubt, difficult circumstances are bound to come even as you walk along with Jesus in this world. However, you need not to be fearful and give up, only trust His Word and rely fully in His presence with you that no disaster will befall you, and you will safely reach your goal as long as Jesus Christ is traveling with you.

God cannot change His mind because of any difficulty that arises along your way. Instead, He will manifest His awesome presence to rescue you from every evil attack and bring you safely to the destination He had earlier appointed you.

As you are determined not to be afraid but develop the attitude of faith and action of prayer in the face of any opposition, trials, and tribulations you shall be saved and not be drown because of His overwhelming presence with you. Good morning and do have a victorious and joyful week.

Your brother,
