MORE THAN YOU CAN HANDLE

By Pastor Cole Maxwell
Scripture Reading: Mark 4:35-41
 
“When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and said to the waves, ‘Silence! Be still!’ Suddenly the wind stopped, and there was a great calm. Then he asked them, ‘Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?’ The disciples were absolutely terrified. ‘Who is this man?’ they asked each other. ‘Even the wind and waves obey him!’” Mark 4:39-41
 
There are probably many times when you have said to yourself, “This is more than I can handle right now.” And to be honest, it probably is more than you can handle by yourself.
 
I think God allows us to go through certain trials, or allows us to leave our comfort zones, like the disciples in today’s Scripture passage, so that we can learn to rely on Him more than we rely on ourselves.
 
Are you relying on your own strength today or God’s?
