Reason To Believe-God’s Control Over the Weather

June 9th, 2016 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason to Believe is God’s control over the weather.

The disciples responded with awe and amazement when they realized that Jesus could settle a violent storm at the command of His word.

In Matthew chapter 8, they were in a boat when they encountered a furious storm. The waves swept over the boat, and the disciples feared that they would drown. They cried out to Jesus, “Lord, save us!” Jesus rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.

The disciples responded to the sudden change in the atmosphere with these words, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”

This puts Jesus in a completely different category from everybody else. None of us can control the weather. It takes a Divine presence to guide the path of the thunderstorm or calm the raging sea. Jesus has that authority.
His command over the weather is a reason to believe in God’s good news.
