23 Then Jesus got into the boat and started across the lake with his disciples. 24 Suddenly, a terrible storm came up, with waves breaking into the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. 25 The disciples went to him and woke him up, shouting, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” 26 And Jesus answered, “Why are you afraid? You have so little faith!” Then he stood up and rebuked the wind and waves, and suddenly all was calm. 27 The disciples just sat there in awe. “Who is this?” they asked themselves. “Even the wind and waves obey him!”

Although the disciples had witnesses many miracles, they panicked in this storm.Â As experienced sailors, they knew the danger, what they did not know was Who was sleeping on the boat. We often experience sudden storms in our life, where we cannot feel God’s presence.Â Even though God has done many things for us in the past, we forget Who He is and what He can do.Â When we truly understand Who God is, we realize He controls both the storms of nature and the storms of our life.Â The same power that calmed this storm can calm the storm in your heart that you are going through right now.Â God can change the circumstances, He can change the hearts of people, He can even change your heart.Â Jesus is right there with you in the storm, even though it may feel like He is sleeping, He is with you.Â Trust in His Word that tells you so and trust in His love that He is working out all things for His purpose in your life.Â Take your eyes off the storm and look to the One Who can control storms of nature and the storms of your heart.
Have a God Day!
