Mark 4:35 On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.” 36 Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him. 37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling.

Jesus instructs His disciples to go to the other side. One would think since Jesus proclaims to be the Son of God, that things would be smooth. That’s not the case. As they obeyed, they experienced hurricane-like conditions and thought they were about to die.

There may be times where God leads us to uncertain situations. For instance, we hear God telling us to move to a different city. As we obey, we may think we’ll experience instantaneous breakthrough in some part of our lives however, we go into a situation worse off than where we left. Or, God told us to start a business. We hope to get profits within a year, but we go into serious debt.

Initially, everything may not work as smoothly as we thought. But as we put our pride, logic, and ego aside and remain consistent with obeying God, He can turn any situation around for our good. Just remain in faith that something good will come because of your obedience. Looking back at the disciples, although they were hit by the storm hard, it didn’t kill them. They went to Jesus, He stopped the storm, and they gained a better appreciation for Him (Mark 4:38-41). As we go to God with our concerns about what He’s called us to do, He’ll eventually turn our situation around, and we too will have a better appreciation for Him.
