Luke 8: 22 One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s cross to the other side of the lake.” So they got into a boat and started out. 23 As they sailed across, Jesus settled down for a nap. But soon a fierce storm came down on the lake. The boat was filling with water, and they were in real danger.
24 The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!”
When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and the raging waves. Suddenly the storm stopped and all was calm. 25 Then he asked them, “Where is your faith?”
The disciples were terrified and amazed. “Who is this man?” they asked each other. “When he gives a command, even the wind and waves obey him!” (NLT)
Your faith is the control switch for the power of God.
Your faith controls the flow of the power of God.
Faith comes to us when we hear the word of God.
Our faith works when we work it, when we put it to work. When we put our faith to work by giving a command, we release the power of God to perform the word God gave us. We call that a miracle, healing, sign or wonder.
Faith overrides the natural order with a supernatural intervention from heaven.
The fact that electricity is powered into a house does not mean that at night the house is lit up. Each room has light or darkness based on the direction of the control switch in the room. The person that flips the switch determines if there is light or darkness in a room.
They believed they could cross to the other side of the lake by using a boat, so they got in the boat and started sailing.
A contrary situation showed up on their way to their destination – destiny; a fierce storm came on the lake with winds and strong waves and the boat started filling up with water.
Some of the disciples were fishermen and were used to being tossed around in a boat but this was different. This storm was there to stop them from successfully getting to the other side. This required a supernatural intervention. Faith was needed, but faith was nowhere to be found until Jesus woke up and used His faith to stop the storm. How? He issued a strong command – A Rebuke to the wind driving the waves. He told the wind to STOP and it STOPPED.
What is the contrary situation that has showed up in your life on your way to your God given destiny?
Lack of money?
Negative Doctors report?

In case you have not received Jesus as your Lord and savior, you can turn your heart over to Jesus right now.
Say this prayer with me: Lord Jesus, I am a sinner and I know, I cannot save myself from the wrath of God. I believe that you died on the cross and you took my sins away. I receive you now as my Lord and Savior. Take my life and use it for your glory. Thank you for saving me.
Begin to read your bible, pray, attend Church and most especially use your faith.
