Recently I went thru storm. I have never in my life felt such rejection and sorrow. I lost my way completely. I could not see or hear Jesus. All my Christianity suddenly was worthless. All I could do was say those words over and over, “Jesus, save me, Jesus save me.” He reached out and took my hand and delivered me. In an instant, turmoil I experienced was gone, pain and sorrow was gone.
4. WORSHIP HIM When you have called out to Jesus, and He comes and delivers you, you will know without a shadow of doubt that He is your strong deliverer. He is your Fortress. He is only one who can heal.
Psalm 17: 5 – 8
V 8 “Hide me under shadow of your wings,”
We were NOT created to carry heavy burdens of life. These burdens WILL overwhelm us and cause us to sink. Christians are sometimes most miserable people on face of earth.
All you ever hear is talk about how bad waves are. But beloved, if we would only see Jesus, we would know that all will be well.
Matthew 11: 27 – 30
V30 “ For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
All will be well. Do not fear; do not take eyes of Jesus. Call to Him and He will save you. Even in midst of biggest storm or challenge in your life, you will find that it no longer has power over you. You know there is a storm, but you ONLY HAVE EYES FOR JESUS. You have a peace and a joy that no man or thing can take from you.
When you experience Jesus as your deliverer, as your safe refuge, your rock, you will love Him more, you will worship Him more, and you will cry out like those fishermen on boat: “Truly, You are Son of God!”
