TEXT: MATHEW 14:22-33
MEMORY VERSE: JOHN 6:21
The true worshippers take to spiritual duties concurrently with Jesus; though they do not see the lord with ordinary eyes. King Jesus is the author of spiritual work. He takes monopoly of every sinfree disciples, disciples makers and makers of disciples makers. Here he empowers them in the battle of life and spiritual duties. The spirit of Jesus indwelling in the inner man of sinfree Christ disciples blesses the true worshippers with power to serve God with the mind of Christ. Thus making every effort to make war with Satan, the prince of death on earth like Christ. Here the storm of life makes war with soldiers of the cross; trying to divert their attention on what the Holy ghost intimated them to do. The author of storm of life, that so Satan and demons are a defeated does. When the storm saw that Jesus empowered peter to walk on the surface of the water to meet with the captain of salvation, it blew stronger. The Bible says
But when he saw the wind more boisterous, he was afraid: and beginning to sink, he cried saying, Lord save me
Such is storm of spiritual work. The storm seems to be powerful, but since it has no real existence, it is less than nothing in the presence of Christ. Beware of fearfulness at the hour of Satan. Do not be afraid when messenger of Satan, anti Christ, false christian etc says all sort of evil against you falsely for Christ sake. This making every effort to disfigure your faith, just come to total dependent upon Jesus. Peter cried unto Jesus when he began to sink by reason for fearfulness. Here the Lord saved him. Today the spirit of truth is at work mightily on earth. He does not stand afar from spiritual workers in the body of Christ. Jesus says
Nevertheless I tell you the truth: It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I do not go away the comforter will not come unto you: but if I depart I will send him unto youJOHN 16:7
Satan the author of storm knows him and tremble before a spirit filled worshipper in the living church. Here he receivebpowwr and grace to negotiate every storm intelligently. When false christian disappoint you, say all sort of evil against you so as to put you to shame do not give off. The Holy spirit will encourage and comfort spiritual workers. Here he continues in spiritual work day by day.
NOTE: Persecution, problems and obstacles in God’s worship, just to hinder true worshippers to continue in God’s work is the storm in spiritual work.
