Three Sources of our Storms:
1. Fallen World
2. Bad Choices
3. God's Sovereign Purpose

Truth: When in a storm don't ask why. Ask how?
Mattew 14:22 - About a perfect storm. Why?
I. BECAUSE OF ITS PERFECT PURPOSE (v. 22-24)
v.22 - "Jesus made the disciples get into the boat..."
Note: "Made" = A Command
Why Would Jesus send them into a storm? To Teach them
Pattern In Scripture: "All God's heroes were hammered out on the anvil of difficulty"


II. BECAUSE OF HIS PERFECT PRAYERS (v.23 & 25 )
v.23 - "When he had sent them away, Jesus went to the mountain to pray."
v. 25 - "It was the fourth watch of the night." 3:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m.

Hebrews 4:13 - “There is no creature hidden from his sight. But all things are open And laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom you have to do.”

Hebrews 7:25 - “Hence also He is able to save forever those who draw near to God through Him since He ever lives to make intercession for them!”
III. BECAUSE OF HIS PERFECT PRESENCE (v.25)
v.25 - "And in the fourth watch of the night He came to them walking on the Sea."
Important Fact: The very thing that troubled them, transported Jesus to them
Important Truth: The Problem we face becomes a path for Jesus to come to us.
Psalm 34:18 - "The Lord is near to the broken-hearted. And saves those who crushed in spirit."
IV. BECAUSE OF HIS PERFECT POWER (v.26-29)
Jesus Came walking "on" the water.
Truth: By walking on the Water He communicated His Power over the water.
He Put the Water benethe His feet.
I Cor. 15:24-27 - "Then comes the end, when He hands over the Kingdom to the God and Father when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign until He has put His enemies under His feet, the last enemy."

Ephesians 1:22-23 - “And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church which is His body, he fullness who fills all in all.”That will be abolished is death.”

John 16:33 - “In the world, you shall have tribulation but be of good cheer for I have Overcome the worlds.”
V. BECAUSE OF HIS PERFECT PROMISE (v..22)
v. 22 - "He made them get in the boat and to the other side"
He didn't command them to go under. He commanded them to go over.
The Promise is in the Command.

Jeremiah 29:11 - “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare, and not for calamity. To give you a future and a hope!”

Psalm 23:4 - "Even though I walk THROUGH the valley of the shadow..."

“A glimpse is not a vision. But to a man on a mountain road by night, a glimpse of the next three feet of the road may matter more than a vision of the horizon.” - C.S. Lewis

When Four Winds Blow, know:
His Perfect Purpose
His Perfect Prayers
His Perfect Presence
His Perfect Power
His Perfect Promise
