Musing Through Matthew- Fright To Flight

Let us muse again today from Matthew 8:28 and the theme of Jesus the King. In our study for today we find a thought on the Savior versus Satan and fright to flight. When our Lord stepped off the boat two demon possessed men met Him coming out of the grave yard, Oh how Satan loves to hang around dead places. The Bible says these demons were exceedingly fierce, fearful in the highest degree. They were so strong no one ever dare go that way. I wonder will they frighten our Lord to flight?

Musing Through Matthew- Wonder Versus Worship

Let us muse again today from Matthew 8:27 and the theme of Jesus the King. In our text for today we find a display of wonder versus worship. When we are in wonder we always have questions like what manner of man is this. When in wonder we failed to see that He is the God-man. We failed to see that the wind and sea of our storms only obey Him because He is their creator. In this brief moment our King unveils His glory but all they  saw was the wonder of a man with a lot of power. Let us not fail to see in our storms that He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Musing Through Matthew-Fear And Faith Cannot Reside Together

Let us muse again today from Matthew 8:26 and the theme of Jesus the King. In our lesson for today we find fear and faith cannot reside together. He addresses the disciples problem before the storm because theirs is the greatest of the problems. He asked them why or ye fearful? We learn that fear will only increase as faith decreases. In the end He stands as the creator and brings about a great calm. Let us remember faith can only increase by our relationship to the Word of God.

Musing Through Matthew-Little Faith Displayed

Let us muse again today from Matthew 8:25 and the theme of Jesus the King. In our text today we see little faith displayed. While the disciples are coming unraveled in the storm because of unbelief our Savior’s confidence in the Father is so strong He sleeps through the storm. Even in their request to be saved calling Him Lord, it is noteworthy because there is salvation in no other name but His. When they said we perish it screams of little or no faith because it is impossible to sink a ship when the Creator is on board.

Musing Through Matthew-Covering For Our Storms

Let us muse again today from Matthew 8:24 and the theme of Jesus the King. In our study for today we find a covering for our storms. In these seas storms were known to come up suddenly and without any warning so it is with storms in the life of God’s people. The boat was covered with the waves and the disciples were being tossed about with the wind. There was a greater presence covering the boat that was the presence of the heavenly Father and the disciples knew it not. This presence was so strong His Son was asleep in the midst of the storm

Musing Through Matthew- Following Him Is Rough Sometimes

Let us muse again today from Matthew 8:23 and the theme of Jesus the King. In our text for today we are confronted with the truth that following Him is rough sometimes. The disciples followed our Lord into the boat. They were wise to do so and very safe in His presence but not secure from raging storms of trouble. I’d rather be in a boat with Him in the midst of the storm than sailing on smooth seas and He is not in the boat.

Musing Through Matthew- A Me First Mentality

Let us muse again today from Matthew 8:21-22 the theme of Jesus the King. In our text for today we see a me first mentality. When I first meditated on these verses some time ago I was amazed that our Lord was against a follower going back and burying their dead dad. When I took a closer look it was not that He was against burying dead dads but He is strongly against a me first mentality. The man said suffer me first to go and bury my father. Our Lord will never allow anyone or anything to take His place as the most important.
