That evening, Jesus said to his disciples, "Let's cross to the east side."
So they left the crowd, and his disciples started across the lake with him in the boat. Some other boats followed along.
Suddenly a windstorm struck the lake. Waves started splashing into the boat, and it was about to sink.
Jesus was in the back of the boat with his head on a pillow, and he was asleep. His disciples woke him and said, "Teacher, don't you care that we're about to drown?"
Jesus got up and ordered the wind and the waves to be quiet. The wind stopped, and everything was calm.
Jesus asked his disciples, "Why were you afraid? Don't you have any faith?"
Now they were more afraid than ever and said to each other, "Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”
When you see the power of God expressed in ways that you expect, you can praise Him and declare your faith to others!
But when you see the power of God break out in unexpected and even unbelieveable ways you can be tempted to be afraid!
Healing the sick was amazing, but commanding the storm was beyond amazing. Who can speak to a storm except God Himself!
Ask God to reveal Himself to you in ways that take you out of your comfort zone! Ask Jesus to speak to the storm in your life and calm the raging waters! Give Jesus the glory for doing the impossible in your life!
”Lord Jesus, I choose to trust You to be with me as I ride out the storms in my life. But if You choose to calm my storm I give You all the praise and glory. Praise Your Holy Name now and forever. Amen.”
