When Jesus Is In Your Boat by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

When Jesus Is In Your Boat by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

But he that is joined unto the Lord is one
spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17).

On a particular occasion, the disciples of
Jesus were ferrying in a boat. Certainly,
they had been on several boat rides, but
this one was different and more remarkable, because
the Master was in the boat with them.

 However, not long afterwards, the disciples
noticed that water was coming into the boat. The wind
became fierce and ferocious, with the tides getting
higher. Though terrified, the disciples couldn’t accept
the possibility of the boat capsizing with Jesus in it, and
they and the Master drowning in the sea.

Thus, they went to Him only to find Him sleeping
in the rear of the same endangered boat. The Bible
says, “And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep
on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him,
Master, carest thou not that we perish? And he arose,
and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be
still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm”
(Mark 4:38-39).

When Jesus is in your boat, there’s joy, peace,
and prosperity. His presence in the boat with the
disciples made the difference. Even though He chided
them for their lack of faith, they needed power over the
imminent crisis and He was right there to provide it.

The question today is, “Who is in your boat?”
It had better be Jesus; otherwise, you’re sunk. And
something better for us today is that, much more than having Him “in the boat” with you, He’s in you by the
Holy Ghost. In Him, you’ll sail through life’s troubles
triumphantly. In Him, you have power over every
turbulence, crisis, and adversity. Irrespective of the
tests, trials and persecution, you’ll always win.

No matter how dire the situation is, He’ll turn
those seemingly tough times into your best times. The
Bible says, “For our light affliction, which is but for
a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and
eternal weight of glory…” (2 Corinthians 4:17). It makes
no difference what the challenges are; because He lives
in you, you’ll always win.

Christ in you is your assurance of victory against
life’s stresses and troubles. He’s in “your boat”;
therefore, refuse to fear.

PRAYER
Dear Father, I thank you for my oneness with you.
Your ever-abiding presence in and with me makes
me indestructible. I’m more than a conqueror
through Christ that loved me, and I can do all things
in your Name, and by your ability at work in me, in
Jesus’ Name. Amen.
