Quite the picture huh? Source is Mpora and the caption is: Giant Wave Catches Surfers.
What struck me is that He said to 'surf''. Surf has a few meanings: the swell of the sea that breaks on the shore or on shoals, foamy water caused by the breaking of the sea upon a shore, especially a shallow or sloping shore, to float on the crest of a wave toward shore, to ride a surf board, to surf the internet. Definitions taken from Dictionary.com Surf All of these definitions mean to stay afloat and to travel in some way. Surfboard implies gliding across the water or, in some instances, sand or snow, or now, which is very common, glide the waves of the internet and search on the computer. All of these imply staying afloat on whatever surface is under us. If we put our trust in Jesus Christ and His Word in Scripture, we WILL stay afloat no matter how ominous our situation maybe.Mark 4:35-41 NIV
That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?” He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.
He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”
They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”
If God said it then we are to believe it!! Amen?
Hebrews 11:1 ESV
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
