“Jesus Always Has Impact” By Kirk Hunt
And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!”
Mark 4:41 NKJV
Jesus got up from sleep and faced the storm. Without hesitation or preamble, He spoke His power over the storm. His words had impact. A great calm followed.
The Disciples were awestruck by Jesus’ power. Wind and waves obeyed instantly. This came as a shock to them, despite all of the miraculous healing they had seen Jesus perform.
Perhaps their confusion comes from the duality, the two-part nature, of Jesus. Yes, He is fully man. Yes, He is fully God. Both are true of Him, at the same time.
That is why Jesus will always have impact in your life. Jesus, fully human, knows and understands the human condition. Jesus, fully God, has the power to impact your life.
His impact may not come the way you think it should. His grace and provision can be one of the most disruptive forces known to man. Still, at the end, you have a better answer than you imagined, and joy in knowing that He is part of your life.
His impact can be felt in how He calms your storm. His impact can be felt in how He calms you, despite the storm. However He moves in your situation, He will have impact. Brace yourself.
Think: Jesus always has impact on the real situations of life.
Pray: “Lord, help me to be confident in Your impact on my life.”
