1 Who is in your boat?

2 Mark 4:35-41 Jesus Calms the Storm 35 That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” 36 Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?” 39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. 40 He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” 41 They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”

13 The issue is not the storm. Some storms don’t go away. Some storms last for years. The issue is how are you in the storm? That depends upon who is in your boat and who you are trusting. The real peace producing factor is that YES, Jesus does care!!!

14 Isaiah 26 3 You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. 4 Trust in the L ORD forever, for the L ORD, the L ORD himself, is the Rock eternal. ……………………………… 7 The path of the righteous is level; you, the Upright One, make the way of the righteous smooth. 8 Yes, L ORD, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts. 9 My soul yearns for you in the night; in the morning my spirit longs for you.

15 3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. (kjv)

16 In the middle of the storm, HOW can I have PERFECT PEACE?

17 In the middle of the storm, HOW can I have PERFECT PEACE? PERFECT PEACE comes from PERFECT TRUST

18 How do I acquire PERFECT TRUST?

19 It is very hard to have perfect trust in someone unless you know that someone very, very well. Perfect Trust requires really Knowing Jesus. How well do we know Jesus?

20 Isaiah 26 3 You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. 4 Trust in the L ORD forever, for the L ORD, the L ORD himself, is the Rock eternal. ……………………………… 7 The path of the righteous is level; you, the Upright One, make the way of the righteous smooth. 8 Yes, L ORD, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts. 9 My soul yearns for you in the night; in the morning my spirit longs for you.

21 6 Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. 7 Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. LUKE 12

22 When do we start accumulating stories that shape our lives?

23 Thus begins a couple’s journey of 47 years of learning more about our Jesus and thus being able to trust Him more and more.

24 John 1 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

25 Romans 8: Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

26 Philippians 4:6- Do not be anxious about anything, but by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Finally brothers, whatever is true, what ever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy- think about such things. Whatever you have learned or heard from me, or seen in me-put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

27 SOME DEVOTIONAL GUIDES WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT JESUS ? JOHN 1:1-18 EPHESIANS 3:14-21 PHILIPPIANS 3:7-14 PHILIPPIANS 4:4-9 COLOSSIANS 1:15-20 COLOSSIANS 3:1-17 ROMANS 8:35-39

28 Psalm 8 1 L ORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory in the heavens. 3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, 4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?
