The disciples walked away from one of the greatest miracles that Jesus had performed. He took one little boy’s lunch of five loaves and two fish and fed over five thousand people. However, when it was over, Jesus told His disciples to get on the boat and sail to the next town. While they were on the sea, a vicious storm came out of nowhere and threatened their lives. They became afraid and believed they were going to die. Jesus came walking to them on the water and ended up calming the storm. There is a scripture in the story that I think is worth mentioning. Mark 6:52 says “they considered not the miracle of the loaves and fish.” It appears that they were so fearful in their current storm that they forgot the miracle they had just experienced.
I’m reminding you of this story because so many times we are guilty of the same thing. When an unexpected storm appears, we tend to only think about where we are currently. Don’t get me wrong, I am in no way trying to minimize the intensity of anyone’s present storm, but have you considered what you’ve already experienced? Are you so worried about your current situation now that you’ve forgotten that God has made a way for you so many other times before? Sure, the sky is black, and the wind is fierce; but the same God that brought you this far is closer than you think. Just like you saw Him do the impossible before, He’s going to do it again. Let me encourage you not to let your current trial cause you to forget your last miracle.
