Let us go over
To a new destination
To future instruction
Your uncharted ground
Let us go over
Let go of your culture
Though you’re unsure
Let it be an adventure
A joint venture
You might meet difficulties
But I will bring rest thereafter
You might meet losses
But there I will bring restoration afterward
You might meet loneliness
But I will always be right there with you
One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side of the lake.” So they got into a boat and set out. ~ Luke 8:22 NIV
Following Jesus doesn’t exempt us from fierce storms of life. Salvation doesn’t make us immune to storms. When Jesus told His disciples, “Let us go over to the other side,” do you suppose He didn’t know that the storm would rage? That storm is raging in your life because you’re on the path to your God-given destiny. God is moving you to your new territory.
When the storm comes, if you have the Word in you, just lift your hands and voice and say, “Praise the Lord, I’m going over! Come hell or high water, I’m going over!” Now, it might not be so easy but we must rest assured that Jesus said we’re going over and that is settled. Having said so, the storm will either have to get out of the way or we’ll just go through it. This is not arrogance. It is faith.
People that believe the Word are peculiar to the world. While the world is crying about going under they are praising about going over. The storm that you’re facing is causing the world to tremble and give up but because you have been raised along with Christ and are seated with Him in the heavenly realms, that storm will carry you over and you will not give up like the rest of them.
Don’t let that storm steal your faith and prevent you from reaching your destination. That storm will serve you! Don’t let it tell you what to believe. Watch your confession; Jesus said: “Let us go over”, not under! You will not drown!
