Activate Your Inner Man Amid Fear (Morning)
Mark 11:23 “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea, ’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.
For today’s rhema we present Simon or better known as Peter. When His disciples were on the boat crossing the lake Galilee. Out of nowhere, a strong gust of wind was blowing, their boat was in danger of collapsing and drowning them. Across the lake, the twelve disciples saw a silhouette walking towards them. When the figure finally took shape, they recognized it. It was their teacher. He walked on the water. Among the twelve only Peter dared to ask Jesus if He would allow Peter to join Him. For a brief moment Peter could feel the water in his feet, it miraculously could support his weight. When his mind started to question this miracle, he became afraid, a cold breeze tipped his thought and he was almost drowned if Jesus not helping him. While catching his hands, Jesus asked him: o you of little faith, why did you doubt?
Let’s take a closer look. His failure was not caused by bad weather. Nor because of his teacher’s lack of miracles. He is a fisherman, he knows the weather and climate like the palm of his hand. His failure could only be contributed to one thing: his fears. Fear could ruin God’s work in your life. At first, he wanted to join his teacher, but when doubt starting to spread its seed in his heart, he could no longer feel and experience His miraculous work.
What causes Him to let hardships and difficulties happen in our lives in the first place? He does it to exercise our faith. To make it stronger and continuously active. To prevent our downfall whenever troubles and hardships hit our lives. Our faith connects us to His authority directly. Through our faith, His magnificent works can only happen. Do not doubt Him, keep His covenant of Peace. Activate your faith perpetually.
When you ACTIVATE YOUR FAITH, His POWER AND AUTHORITY COULD FINALLY BE UNLEASHED and GREAT MIRACLES may happen.
1. Are there things that could trigger your fears and anxieties? What are those?
2. Do you believe that His power and authority could be manifested in your life? Why?
3. What will you do to keep your faith, until He could unleash His authority and miracles?
“Holy Spirit, hold our hands and pull us out. We no longer want to live in the darkness, living in our irrational anxiety and our misleading thoughts. We want to walk behind You, following Your every step. We want to witness Your authority and miracles be manifested in our lives. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”
