Recently I went thrurepparttar 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,repparttar 139338 turmoil I experienced was gone,repparttar 139339 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 isrepparttar 139340 only one who can heal.

Psalm 17: 5 – 8

V 8 “Hide me underrepparttar 139341 shadow of your wings,”

We were NOT created to carryrepparttar 139342 heavy burdens of life. These burdens WILL overwhelm us and cause us to sink. Christians are sometimesrepparttar 139343 most miserable people onrepparttar 139344 face ofrepparttar 139345 earth.

All you ever hear is talk about how badrepparttar 139346 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 inrepparttar 139347 midst ofrepparttar 139348 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 onrepparttar 139349 boat: “Truly, You arerepparttar 139350 Son of God!”

Training: In your Christian walk are you training to follow Him or are you content to stay inrepparttar valley of existence and dull living? Are you doing whatever ‘fitness’ training you can so that you are able to climb. Inrepparttar 139337 same way a natural trainer has to physically train his body for climbing a mountain, so you must train your soul by having intimate time with Jesus on a regular basis. He is your leader. Your rope attached to Him will determine tour survival. Other important training aspects are: REGULAR attendance of prayer meetings, church etc. Prayer meetings arerepparttar 139338 place where Jesus Himself trains you.

Cost: Yes this will cost. To follow Jesus will cost you sometimes family and friends. Comments may sound like this: “you are mad, your team leader expects to much of you, they want to control you, you do not need to be at church(training ground) so much. Etc etc. These are normally voiced by those who cannot see Jesus calling, or they themselves are stuck inrepparttar 139339 valley and want all to stay with them their so that it will justify their mediocrity. It will take up your ‘personal time’ Butrepparttar 139340 voice of Jesus is still calling “COME!”

3. THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN Atrepparttar 139341 top ofrepparttar 139342 mountainrepparttar 139343 view is awesome. You have won! The prize is worth it all.

Mark 3: 14 -15: “Then He appointed twelve, that they might be with Him and that He might send them out to preach and to have power to heal sickness and to cast out demons.”

Atrepparttar 139344 toprepparttar 139345 following happens:

Jesus Himself appoints you to be WITH HIM – you have a personal new relationship closer than ever – closer thanrepparttar 139346 people inrepparttar 139347 valley. You encounter Jesus in a life changing intimate way.

Jesus Himself appoints you to go do something WITH POWER! Not woesie Christianity, but a real supernatural demonstration of Jesus being with you. Matthew 17: 2-5: “Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James and John his brother, led them up a high mountain by themselves.

And He was transfigured before them. His face shone likerepparttar 139348 sun, and His clothes became white asrepparttar 139349 light.

……Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him.

…….behold a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out ofrepparttar 139350 cloud saying: “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!”

Atrepparttar 139351 top ofrepparttar 139352 mountain you encounterrepparttar 139353 glory of Godrepparttar 139354 Father and Jesus,repparttar 139355 Son, in all His might, power and splendour.

Jesus is calling…. Will you follow?
