Have you ever seen a ship on endless waters? Have you heard of the ‘Titanic’ a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early morning of April 15, 1912 after colliding with an Iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City?
The ‘Titanic’ did not sink until something happened. A ship does not sink because it is sorrounded by many waters and the Titanic did not just sink immediately it collided with the Iceberg. What sinks a Ship? What sank the ‘Titanic?’
Dear, we are like a ship on vast and deep waters. The magnitude of the water cannot sink us. The troubles of life could be likened to the water on which the ‘Titanic’ sailed. The ship only sinks when water gets into it. Trouble will not bring you down until you let it get into you.
Stand strong dear! You are more than a conqueror. You are an overcomer in Christ Jesus the Lord. No matter what may come our way, our lives are safe in God’s hand.
