Matthew 8:23 And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him.

24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

25 And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.

26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!

We all face storms in life.....

Even Christians.....Who are doing what God has said.....

....who are going where He has sent them.....

That’s what happened to the disciples that day.....

verse 23 says that Jesus got on a ship, then his disciples followed him. 24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea,

I think that many times we have the idea that Becoming a Christian and following God means that we Never have to struggle or go through anything.

Many Christians, when they find themselves in hard times Immediately BLAME God for their trouble.

They don’t realize it, but that’s playing right into satan’s hands.

That’s what he wants you believe.

That God wants to hurt you somehow and it’s supposed to be good for you.

Or he may say that God just doesn’t love you at all.....

You need to understand that satan doesn’t have any power other than his deception.

Jesus DISARMED satan in front of the whole spirit world.....

Colossians 2:15 And having spoiled (Disarmed) principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

satan doesn’t have any power to harm you......

But he knows that if he can get you to Believe the Wrong thing....

....then you will Say the wrong thing.....and you will Get the Wrong thing.....

God said in Isaiah 57:19 I create the fruit of the lips;.....

That’s why.......If you don’t know his tricks and Control your Thinking and your Talking.....

He will get you to use the things God meant to Help you and make you an Overcomer against you.

Jesus said Matthew 12:37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

There are some things we need to know.

Paul told us that We aren’t to be Ignorant of satan’s devices.

We need to Know HOW he operates.....

So we don’t fall for his tricks and traps

This is also why it’s so Important for us as Believers..Especially New Christians.. to Get Into the Word.....

I know that Just as SOON as you make a public statement for Jesus......

satan comes to steal that Word from you.....

That’s what Jesus said in Mark 4:15 when He explained the Parable of the sower

He said....... Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.

What we All need to Understand is that WE HAVE an Enemy.....an Adversary.....who wants to destroy us.....

And it doesn’t matter if you are a Christian or Not.....

HE WANTS YOU DEAD......and he’s doing everything he can to get you there......

But thank God that even though satan comes to steal kill and destroy.......Jesus said "I have come that you might have LIFE"
