Luke 8: 23 A gale swept down the lake and the boat was filling with water.

Someone once said, “There are times when God puts a Goliath in front of you to bring out the David that is within you” Today there are way too many churches preaching messages that if you believe in Jesus and truly give you heart to him you will never face difficulties in your life. That is an out and out LIE. No where in all of Scripture does it say anything lie that. Then those same FALSE PROPHETS justify something bad happening to someone by saying, “Well, they just didn’t have real faith.” We face the storms of life daily: a faltering marriage, an illness, the loss of a job, the death of a loved one. All these storms hit he faithful and unfaithful alike. The difference is that when we face the storms of life, the Christ is there to help get us through. It is faith and trust in Christ that brings us safely through the storms of life.     Amen.
