(He went into a ship with his disciples)
The ship represents your life, your destination, the course of your life.
(One song writer put it this way) The soul of a man is like a ship that sails on the sea of time.)
When Jesus entered the ship he changed the course, he gave them a purpose and a destination.
I just want to know tonight: Is there anybody here that remembers when Jesus got into your ship?
Is there anybody here that remembers when he changed your course?
You were lost, you were drifting, you were bound, you were on your way to a devils hell; but one day you found your way to an old fashioned altar and Captain Jesus came on board.
And he washed you in his blood, delivered you, put his spirit in you and his anointing on you and he gave you a purpose and he gave you a destination.
As soon as Jesus entered the ship he gave them a Word: That word was prophetic, that word carried the spirit of destiny in it.
That word said you are going somewhere.
Has anybody got a word that youíre going somewhere?
Has anybody got a word that has pointed you toward something greater than what you have?
Has anybody got a word that stirs your faith, wakes you up in the morning, and carries you through the day?
Tell your neighbor: Iíve got a word
They got a word of destiny that assured them of his presence with them.
Somebody said: I heard a word, but I couldnít find God in it
Iím going to tell you something:
When God gives you a word it carries his presence (I didnít say it will always make you happy, and I didnít say it will always make you feel good) but I said it will always carry his presence.
Moses said: If your presence go not with us, then do not take us up from this place.
His presence and his word go together: I donít care how religious it sounds or how appealing it is to your flesh or your desires (the first thing you better ask yourself is) does it carry his presence?
Because the Word that carries his presence has the power to carry you, and keep you.
They got a word of purpose that assured them of their destination.
That word made them Unsinkable
Tell your neighbor: Hold onto your word.
Listen: I didnít say that the word guarantees you that you will have an easy life, and you will never have to go through a storm.
I said: The word will carry through the storm, the word will hold you up, the word will make you Unsinkable.
I wouldnít be here today if it hadnít been for the word of the Lord.
*The enemy would have killed me, but I had a word.
*Debt would have sunk me, but I had a word.
*Family turmoil and strife would have capsized my vessel, but I had a word.
*Attacks on my integrity and my character would have drowned me in a sea of despair, but I had a word.
*Depression and fear and anxiety would have swallowed me up, but I had a word.
Iím telling you: Hold on to your word
Your word makes you fire proof.
Your word makes you invincible.
Your word makes you unsinkable.
Isa 43:2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, (they shall not overflow thee): when thou (walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned;) neither shall the flame kindle
