Part 2 - Defining Moments
Topic: Devotion Scripture: Romans 5:3–5:4, James 1:5–1:8, Luke 8:22–8:25, Hebrews 3:12–3:14, Genesis 50:20, Romans 8:35, Proverbs 3:5–3:6, 1 Peter 1:7
The imagery in James 1:6 AND Luke 8:22 is of a ship at sea during a storm. The question to us is this; Will we anchor ourselves in God’s wisdom, remaining faithful to his unchanging character, and living according to His Word – NO MATTER WHAT? Or will we tumble about like a ship at sea from one cultural fad and personal whim to another?
Following the Lord will take you into storms. You will be surrounded by discomfort, anger, and fearsome situations. Do not abandon ship. Remember that He is in the boat with you. Do not be surprised that what starts out as a smooth boat ride has some winds and waves in the trip. When they come, that is not time to put distance between yourself and the Lord.
