CONTROL OF THE WIND AND THE SEA
We hear people laugh when Pat Robertson and others pray for the Hurricanes to go away. We dismiss this miracle, as wishful or delusional thinking. We just don’t believe we could have this power.
As Christians we believe in the Creator of everything, and that He caused the Ten Plagues in Egypt, but that we could see these results, personally? No Way.
“And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships. And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship so that it was now full. And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith? And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”
Jesus controlled the wind and sea and caused a fig tree to dry up and die. (Matthew 21:19-21) He told the disciples if they only had faith they could do the same to the fig tree and also move that mountain into the sea.
What has happened that that measure of faith is not apparent in our lives, our Preachers, or our Churches? We see very few true miracles, the multitudes do not flock to most of our Churches, and where they do, we blame it on the music or anything but the presence of God.
In Romans, we are told we are all given the measure of Faith. (Romans 12:3) We are told we must build up our faith by praying in the Holy Spirit. (Jude 1:20)
Our prayer language, our Spirit praying directly to God’s Spirit, our mind and will not in the way. (1 Corinthians 14:14)
Too often we reject the need for our prayer language. A Sad Situation, rejecting the Gift of God, out of fear or ignorance. Pray for Wisdom. (James 1:5). Ask for God’s best for your life.
