Praying through Mark 4:35

Heavenly Father, how astonishing to realise that Jesus also got tired and would have been overwhelmed by life's circumstances if He had not trusted wholly on You to guide Him to do what was right. Thank You that You gave us the Scriptures to help us understand Who Jesus is and why He came. You sent Jesus to the lost sheep of the house of Israel, and their rejection of their Messiah has secured my acceptance of Christ and my salvation by grace, through faith in Him. How wonderful that Israel will one day recognise Jesus, repent of their sin, be restored into fellowship with You, and trust Him as their Messiah. And thank You that You encourage my faith when the storms of life seem overwhelming. Help me to remember that no-one, not even a wild, naked, demon-possessed man, is beyond redemption by grace through faith in the Person and Work of the Lord Jesus Christ. Help me to live as He lived, in total dependence on You. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
