But as they sailed He fell asleep. And a windstorm came down on the lake, and they were filling with water, and were in jeopardy. And they came to Him and awoke Him, saying, ‘Master, Master, we are perishing!’ Then He arose and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water. And they ceased, and there was a calm. Luke 8:23-24.

Walking along with Jesus can sometimes bring you into a dangerous and terrible terrain that may look hopeless and put your life in jeopardy. At such a time, all that Jesus wants you to do is to remember He is with you and call upon Him.

You will never know the reality of your situation until you have heard from Jesus. He knows things you do not know. His presence with you make a whole lot of difference and He has the power you cannot imagine to transform your horrible experience. It is foolish to come to conclusions on your own when the Master Jesus is right with you.

Don’t give up yet no matter how fierce the battle. With Jesus you can overcome, with Him you can stand the test and with Him you can sing a new song of victory. May the Lord help you to always be conscious of His presence with you and give you the courage to call upon Him. You will surely tell the story how you’ve overcome if you don’t give up. Have a joyful and fruitful day.

Your brother,
