Jesus Calms the Storm
23Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. 24Without warning, a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. 25The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” 26He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. 27The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”
The verse says that without warning a furious storm came. Have you ever felt that way, that out of seemingly nowhere the storm is upon you? Your world is out of whack and all hell seems to be breaking loose, even if just in your emotions? Why is it at that time often, God seems to be silent….? Could it be a perspective thing?
He knows and sees and understands our lives! The word says that God will NEVER leave us or forsake us. We feel as if we will drown in this situation, but Jesus is sleeping right through it, not even bothered by the wind. Trust! Trust in the Lord with all your Heart, mind, will emotions, and lean not on your own understanding, but in allllllll your ways acknowledge Him and He PROMISES to direct our paths. He is there, even if seemingly silent, and fully aware of your situation and has the power to calm every emotion and every storm. Don’t freak out when the sudden storms come, rather remember that Jesus is in the boat with you and you are crossing with HIM over to the other side. His mercies are new every morning.
Just my favorite verse of the day…… :o)
