Paul David Tripp speaks about 2 spiritual truths that sustain him in suffering. The first is "Everything that is outside of your control lives under the control of the Savior who gave His life for you." The second is "The One who is in complete control is also near, so near that we can reach out and touch Him." These 2 truths are beautifully illustrated by Jesus as He walked on water.
Jesus comes to us above the raging sea. It is as if He is saying that the very thing we fear, the raging sea, is merely a series of steps for Him to come near to us. In our deepest pains, let us come to Him with the highest worship- as we proclaim, "Truly you are the Son of God!"
As you struggle through the storms of life, may you keep your eyes on Jesus. May we pray, "When the oceans rise and thunders roar, I will soar with you above the storm. Father you are king over the flood, I will be still and know you are God." Check out this sermon to find out how you can live above the storm!
