Matthew 8:25-27 TLV
25 So they came and woke Him up, saying, “Master, save us! We’re perishing!”
26 He said to them, “Why are you afraid, O you of little faith?” Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and it became totally calm.
27 The men were amazed, saying, “What kind of person is this? Even the winds and the sea obey Him!”
Jesus woke up and calmed the storm. It is time for those like Him (like Christ, Christian) to do the same thing.
John 14:12 NKJV
12 Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.
Wake up Storm Calmers, get up and rebuke the winds! If Jesus wanted to stay and personally do all the storm calming that needed doing, He would have stayed here on earth. Instead He went to the Father to be prayer support for you doing it.
Revelation 19:16 (NKJV) And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
Many struggle with Jesus as King of Kings. When the King says to reign, disobedience says no Jesus, “I won’t reign. You are king and I am not.” Our passion for His position can take on an odd form of disobedience and actually violate His instructions. Get passionate for doing what He says to do! When He says reign, let Him show you how and just do it! Reign!
Romans 5:17 (KJV)For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
How do we reign like Jesus?
Luke 6:40 (AMP)
A student is not superior to his teacher; but everyone, after he has been completely trained, will be like his teacher.
Model Christ’s ministry. Do it like He did it.
Luke 4:18 (KJV)The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
Jesus is saying “Look at my life. Look at how I did it and you do it too. Disciple like I discipled. Train teachers like I trained them. I wasn’t there to be their boss. I was there to be their example.”
