Ship in Safe Hands (by Fenny West)

Ship in Safe Hands


This ship is heavily loaded divine goodies-

treasures of darkness and

hidden riches in secret places-

the abundance of the seas.

Slow and steadily she will go and flow and glow to the glory of God

until she reaches the harbour with all its cargo intact.

Meanwhile regardless

of the tempest in the sea,

she will not be perturbed because

Jesus is at the helm of her affairs.

 In fact He is the pilot of the ship.

She will not go under for going over.

 She will not lose any of her cargo

It is not over until He says so.

It was in the evening (Mark4:35); Jesus said, “Let us pass over to the other side” (4:35); there were other boats that went along side (4:36); Jesus was in the stern sleeping on a cushion (4:38); when Jesus rebuked the storm He said, “Peace! Be still!” (4:39); and the disciples were terrified (4:41) and asked “Who is this?” (4:41).

Luke says that “one day” Jesus said to His disciples, “Let us go over to the other side of the lake” (8:22); He fell asleep (8:23);

Has He told you, “Let us go to the other side.”, and you think He is now sleeping on the job and uncaring despite the turbulence you face? 

Calm down. It is well. He is in control. In fact, He wants you to get up and use the Word of God against the storm that you see.

Say what Jesus said: ‘Peace, Be still! And there shall be a great calm.
