Read the New Testament in a year, one chapter a day, five days a week

Day 72/260: Read Mark 4

Are you ever afraid because of your circumstances? That’s what happened to the disciples in the boat. They knew that Jesus was in the boat with them, but they didn’t consider His power to overcome the great windstorm.

The storms of life are different for everyone. For some it is the loss of a loved one. For others it is a change in careers. Many face health struggles, while many others deal with financial woes. For some, the very thought of getting out of bed in the morning is an obstacle to overcome.

God has given us so much, and has blessed us with many tools to deal with these struggles. Do not ignore the power of prayer; neither should we discount medical and mental health professionals that are equipped to help us through physical and emotional struggles.

“Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?” Strengthen your faith in Christ: read His book (Romans 10:17), pray (James 1:5), and utilize the help He provides through the church and the world.

Do not be ashamed to ask for help. Do not be afraid to seek guidance from medical and mental health providers. The professionals in those fields are blessings from God.

Memory (Copy into a notebook 5-10 times)

Mark 4:25. “For whoever has, to him more will be given; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.”


Pray for strength in the face of struggles, and for help from those blessed by God who provide guidance.
