“50 Days of Prayer at Calvary Chapel”


The men in the boat were not Jonahs out on the sea, trying vainly to sail away from God’s plan for their lives. They were not even out on the water fishing for fun or profit. They were only in the boat because they had followed Jesus there. It was Jesus who got into the boat in the first place. There is a mistaken notion that following Jesus leads to immediate prosperity and peace. Not necessarily. Certainly, the way of the cross leads to life eternal and the glories of heaven. There is a day coming when there will be no more sickness or sorrow. But in the meantime, we will experience some mean times. -Dr. Dave Earley
