MFM Daily Devotional 30 September 2023 MESSAGE

Still on finding rest for your soul, Jesus made it expressly clear to us that we cannot help ourselves, neither resolve our problems and issues of life through worry and anxiety. He gave us vivid examples of the birds and the plants that are not as valuable in God’s eyes as we humans, yet they are daily cared for by God.

How much more we that are made in God’s image? Imagine Jesus in the boat with His disciples in the gospels. This was an example of fear and worry, though a rational one. Having Jesus on board with them was enough assurance for safety. But humans that they were, they quickly forgot that the Master Storm stiller was in the boat. Faith gave in to fear!

They saw danger and not safety. Today, many Christians will do the same. We lose focus of His ever-present presence for a while and entertain fear. Where there’s fear, worry and anxiety are quick to manifest. If care is not taken, other mental and emotional disorders follow suit. Before long that person becomes a victim of negative mental and emotional health which often leads to devastating consequences if not addressed on time and correctly.

Jesus arose in that boat and stilled the storm. At His word, the sea of Galilee became calm. Information has it that the sea has been calm since then till today. Unrest could be as a result of physical problems, economic or financial problems, health issues, marital distress, emotional issues, internal family crisis and more. Life itself is full of challenges, but you need to decide to live above these problems by the power of God.

Beloved, you must surrender your life to Jesus, confess and repent of your sins. Repent of them and ask God for help to trust Him more. Bring all your loads of worries to Jesus and let Him do a supernatural exchange. He will give you an easy yoke and a light burden. You will find rest for your soul by His grace and power.
