30 SECOND DEVOTIONAL GENESIS 12 BLESSED BY GOD

00:0000:00

In Genesis 12 God said to Abraham, I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed."  Just as Abraham was blessed so he could be a blessing to all the earth, the only reason we Christians have been blessed by God is so that we can do the same thing.  Are we living up to our calling as Christians to be a blessing to others or are we being a curse and a hindrance to others coming to Christ?

JOHN 6.15-21 JESUS TESTS THE DISCIPLES

00:0000:00

John 6:15 Therefore when Jesus perceived that they were about to come and take Him by force to make Him king, He departed again to the mountain by Himself alone.  16 Now when evening came, His disciples went down to the sea, 17 got into the boat, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was already dark, and Jesus had not come to them. 18 Then the sea arose because a great wind was blowing. 19 So when they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and drawing near the boat; and they were afraid. 20 But He said to them, "It is I; do not be afraid." 21 Then they willingly received Him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land where they were going.

 In this famous section of Scripture we will talk about Jesus walking on the water and what that means to us today.  We will see that Jesus does not always get us out of the storms of life, but He is there with us through them.  Jesus gave a demonstration of His power, and then He tested His disciples to see if they learned the lesson.  God is always testing us to see if we will trust Him no matter what goes on in our life.  I hope you have that peace that passes all understanding because you have asked Jesus to be your Lord and Savior and you know that when you go through the storms of life, He is in the boat with you.
