Don’t Rock The Boat!
Though it’s been over a couple weeks since I’ve been back from the Twenty12 Cruise, I still reflect on the great time we had.
Since the cruise I’ve taken a moment to think about how God, with His unfailing love, managed to keep us all during the trip and back home.
While flying from Detroit to Miami, FL I, as is custom, pled the blood of Jesus over the plane. All during the flight I had no doubt that it would take me from point A to point B with no calamities. Though I’m aware that there have been plane crashes in the past, I just knew that, because I prayed, that I would make it to my destination safe and sound.
During the 7-day cruise, the Carnival Glory Cruise ship kept us afloat atop over 28,000 ft of water. I prayed we would have a great time and had no doubt that our boat would not sink like the Titanic. Once I prayed I knew everything was going to be alright. (1 John 5:14-15)
In life, so many people choose not to do things because of fear – whether it’s fear of past experiences, fear that the sins of past relationships will creep into the next one, or fear of the unknown. Don’t let fear stop you from living your dreams or from all God has for you.
Also, after you pray for something, whether it’s your future mate, a financial breakthrough, dream fulfillment or whatever, know that God heard and answered your prayer the first time – now all you have to do is coast your way through while not wavering in your faith. In other words, don’t rock the boat!
Don’t be like the waves of the sea driven with the wind and tossed (James 1:6)
Don’t be like a ship in a storm, remain steady and stedfast in your faith.
No matter the circumstances, or even the sin which may so easily beset you (Hebrews 12:1)…repent, get back on the boat, remain steady in your faith and constant in good works and watch God surely bring all the desires of your heart to pass. (Psalm 37:4)
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him. 1 John 5:14-15
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. 1 John 15:58
