What Makes A Ship Unsinkable

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

An American preacher visiting Belfast was scheduled to preach in the church which had lost 16 of its members on the unsinkable ship, the Titanic. It was a week after the tragedy. The church was filled with lords, bishops and ministers of all denominations. The audience was filled with newly made widows and orphans sobbing all around. The sermon was called “The Unsinkable Ship”. It wasn’t about the Titanic. It was about a much smaller, much frailer and much more humble ship that sailed the Sea of Galilee two thousand years before.

It was unsinkable, not because of its construction, but because Messiah was in it. Messiah is the Lord of land and sea. He’s the master of storms and He’s the calmer of raging waves. In this life, we sail many vessels of career, success, popularity, health, youth, and money. Some of these vessels look strong, solid, rich, and glorious, but all these vessels ultimately sink. A life that’s built instead on the presence of the Rabbi from Nazareth is the ship that will never sink. That life will make it through every storm. That’s the unsinkable ship.

Today’s Mission – In any distress, trouble, fear, or anxiety today, comfort your soul with the knowledge that you’re not going to sink. Messiah is in your boat!

The On-Time Lateness Of God

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

I’ve often had a problem being late. To compensate, I would set my clocks ahead. But then I would compensate by doing math calculations to arrive at the actual real time. God has the same problem. He said, “I’m coming soon”, but he said that 2000 years ago. You might argue that for God, a day is like a thousand years. That’s true, but still, two-thousand years doesn’t exactly fit our definition of soon. To our earthly eyes, God seems to be late. But if God’s weakness is stronger than our strength, then His lateness is more on time than our best timeliness. So I’ve got good news. Being late can be divine. Well, maybe not in most cases, but at least in this sense.

God isn’t in a rush, driven, or desperate. He moves in shalom. You need to develop the same attribute. God doesn’t rush through life. He is life. You can’t live life as you were meant to live it if you ’re too busy rushing around. Stop rushing and start learning to live in God’s presence. Learn to be divinely late, and you’ll find yourself living right on time.

Today’s Mission – Stop rushing today and start learning to live in God’s presence.
