On that day, when evening came, He said to them, “Let us go over to the other side.” (Mark 4:35, NASB)

“Even though we follow Christ’s command, we should not expect to escape the storm …

Christ may delay coming to us during our times of distress but it is simply so our faith may be tested and strengthened. His purpose is also that our prayers will be more powerful, our desire for deliverance will be greater, and when deliverance finally comes we will appreciate it more …

With Christ in my vessel,
I smile at the storm.

Christ said, “Let us go over to the other side” – not “to the middle of the lake to be drowned.” Daniel Crawford
