Matthew 8:23-27 says, “When He got into the boat, His disciples followed Him. And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being covered with the waves; but Jesus Himself was asleep. And they came to Him and woke Him, saying, “Save us, Lord; we are perishing!” He said to them, “Why are you afraid, you men of little faith?” Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and it became perfectly calm. The men were amazed, and said, “What kind of a man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?”
We serve such an awesome God. It’s so easy to forget that he calmed the seas, and that the things that are going on in our lives are miniscule compared to a sea or an ocean, or a storm. This scripture has been on my mind the past few days, and I am so thankful for it. I am reminded that no matter what the troubles are, the Lord calls us to believe that He will calm it and He is with us in the midst of it.
