Doing You WELL Wednesday

And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.
Mark 4:35


Are you stuck in the storm (your forward progression has come to a dismal halt)?

OR,

Are you moving (albeit slowly) against every seen and unseen force in expectation of your promised arrival to the other side?

 




In this verse, Jesus gave HIS disciples a directive to their destiny.

Directive - (Let us pass...")

Destiny - (... to the other side.)

Isn't that the way HE is today?

He gives us divine directives for divine destiny? What HE does not give us is the process of transition between the divine directive and the divine destiny. It is often during the process of transition that we encounter unexpected problems that could catapult us over into our destiny or that could indefinitely delay our trip to our destination.

In this passage, our Lord and Savior was in the boat with the disciples as the boat started to sink. While the disciples were worried about their problem (the ship sinking), they temporarily refocused their attention away from the PROBLEM SOLVER. During troublesome times, we must be careful not to shift our attention from the PROBLEM SOLVER to the problem. We must keep moving -even in the storm. Psalm 23 reminds us that we, sometimes, go through the valley. Oftentimes, in life, we can't get to the mountain unless we go through the valley. Keep moving forward! As long as you keep going through it, you will not get stuck in it! And, ultimately, you WILL reach your divine destination!

  3. Hey Trinity!! Thanks for sharing this. I've always loved these set of scriptures! We definitely concern ourselves with way too much! Jesus knows EXACTLY how our end is going to be...why worry, just know that we're getting to the other side. He's got this! Thanks so much for linking up my friend! Have a blessed rest of your week!

  4. Great post! We must keep moving, seek His face and wait upon His promise. It may seem too long or too late, but He has the perfect solution to every problem. His solution to every problem is worth waiting for!

    Blessings and hugs!
