The storm after finding Jesus
Ideally accepting Jesus into your life is synonymous to having your slate wiped clean. But that doesn’t mean it stops there the challenge becomes trying to live a life that seeks God all day everyday which believe you me is a challenge in it self.
However God knows that we are human beings and that sin is everywhere but what He wants you to do is not act “holier than thou” as if you could never do any wrong, on the contrary He wants you to always acknowledge your short comings and seek his forgiveness. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to keep on the straight path, what He want you to do is to trust him.
Today I was reminded of that fact through the bible verse on Luke 8:22-23 about the storm while Jesus and His disciples were in the boat the idea is accepting Jesus as your savior does mean trouble stops pounding at yourdoor. In fact living with Jesus still anything might happen! The Christian life is not easy. God never said it would be and Jesus often warned of hardship and persecution.
Some people wrongly think that conversion will remove every difficulty; but as with the disciples, Jesus will not always stop the problems coming. However He will always be there. How often we forget this, and become fearful! Don't forget, if you belong to Jesus, He is committed to enabling you to handle every problem well; so that you will get the blessing which comes through trusting, and He will get the glory.
