Product Description

The wind was fierce, and the disciples of Jesus had long rowed against it before the Lord finally came to them, walking on the water in the fourth watch of the night-somewhere between 3:00 and 6:00 A.M. In this talk on CD, Michael Wilcox compares this with our own experiences in challenging times. When our trials go on indefinitely, we should not assume that God does not hear our prayers, or that He does not care, or that we are unworthy. Perhaps we have not yet reached the "fourth watch." This comforting message increases our faith and patience, offers profound hope and solace, and explains how the Lord often works with us.

The parable of the olive tree

I love how Bro. Wilcox looks at the allegory of the olive tree like a parable. It really opened my eyes to how much Heavenly Father is aware of all of His children no matter the circumstance. This is a talk I listen to often. I can't recommend it enough!

There is a light at the end of the tunnel

This CD really helped me to see that we must endure through our trials, sometimes for years, but the Lord WILL eventually help us through. The things we endure are for our own happiness and the Lord knows better than we do what we need.
