God Is Still In Control
Mark 4:30-32 Conquering Stress, Anxiety And Fear: Parables Of Jesus (Series)
What area of your life causes you the most stress and anxiety?
Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? 31 It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth.
From small beginnings, the kingdom would eventually grow, in size and in influence.
Don’t despise small beginnings. Something great is on the way!
What is the kingdom of God?
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!”
As the Kingdom of God grows, so does the opposition.
Things can feel out of control, but God is still in charge.
How can a right understanding of the Kingdom of God bring balance and peace to your life?
