“And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side” (Mark 4:35).
Jesus got into a ship with His disciples and said, “Let us pass over unto the other side.” And that settled it! Jesus did not say, “Let us go halfway and sink.”
Therefore, when a storm arose and Jesus’ disciples were frightened, He rebuked them, saying, “How is it that you have no faith?”
At a Full Gospel Business Men’s convention, a woman asked me to pray for her.
She said, “I’m a nervous wreck. It just scares me to death to travel by plane. I actually become sick with fright. I’m not going to attend any more conventions, even though I love to, because I’m so afraid to fly.”
“You don’t have to be afraid,” I replied. “And really, you don’t even have to pray about it. All you have to do is get on the plane and say, “Let us pass over to Los Angeles or Chicago or wherever. And the plane can’t go down. Then you can do just what Jesus did: You can go to sleep, knowing the plane is going to get there, because you have spoken in faith.”
I saw this woman at several conventions afterwards. She told me, “It works just like you said. I get on board the plane and say, “Let’s go over to the other side.” Then I lie back, relax, and praise the Lord. I’m really enjoying flying now.”
Confession: Wherever I travel, I can say, “Let us pass over to the other side,” and I will have what I say.
