Take It to the Bank

Read this passage and note Jesus’ command to His disciples.

“Now it happened, on a certain day, that He got into a boat with His disciples. And He said to them, ‘Let us cross over to the other side of the lake.’ And they launched out. But as they sailed He fell asleep. And a windstorm came down on the lake, and they were filling with water, and were in jeopardy. And they came to Him and awoke Him, saying, ‘Master, Master, we are perishing!’ Then He arose and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water. And they ceased, and there was a calm. But He said to them, ‘Where is your faith?’ ” (Luke 8:22-25).

Jesus’ command to cross over included a promise: “to the other side.” He didn’t say cross to the middle and be overcome by a storm. He said, “Cross over to the other side.” 

No matter what you are facing with your prodigal, you can take the promises in God’s Word to the bank. Circumstances don’t change the promise. 

“God is not a man, that He should like, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?” (Numbers 23:19 NKJV).
