We may face many ‘storms’ in our lives, but the Bible reminds us that there is hope. Just as Jesus was in control of the storm in Mark 4:35-41, God is in control of all our lives. The hands that calmed the storm are the very hands that lead us, guide us and protect us.
In the Old Testament, God describes the Promised Land as “a land flowing with milk and honey” (Exod. 3:8; Num. 14:8; Deut. 31:20; Ezk. 20:15), which is a beautiful graphical way of highlighting the agricultural richness of the land. God brought His people out of slavery in Egypt to a prosperous land of freedom, blessing and the knowledge of the Lord.
