God Still Has a Job For Us To Do


I Confess that this election has been tough to deal with, but moping isn’t going to help much and as I’ve been praying, God comforted my heart with four things from Matthew’s gospel.

Then he got into the boat and His disciples followed him. Matthew 8:23. Jesus is still in my boat! As the disciples traveled across the Sea of Galilee they got caught in a storm. But no matter that water was coming over the sides and they were exhausted they had the most important thing going for them. Jesus was still on board!

All the storms we face in life have one thing in common. We get afraid, but Jesus is not! The disciples went and woke him saying, “Lord save us! We’re going to drown!”

Jesus is still in control! He is not wondering what to do next! …Then he got up and rebuked the wind and the waves and it was completely calm. Matthew 8:26b

God still has a job for us to do on the other side of the storm! Matthew 8:28 when He arrived at the other side… If you we will just stick close to Jesus we will discover that He always brings us to the other side and that when we get there he has something for us to do!

    Thank you for this encouraging word, Pastor Pete. As Julian of Norwich said centuries ago: “All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well”–because our God reigns. Hallelujah!
