Storms of all kinds happen all over our world. There are those relating to weather, relationships, finances, physical challenges, mechanics, scheduling, etc. They are real. They are not fun.
This morning the storm brought to mind a story from the Holy Bible about Jesus. It is from Matthew 8:24-27, (NKJV)
“And suddenly a great tempest arose on the sea, so that the boat was covered with the waves. But He was asleep. Then His disciples came to Him and woke Him, saying ‘Lord, save us! We are perishing!’ But He said to them, ‘Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?‘ Then He arose a rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. So the men marveled, saying, ‘Who can this be, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?'”
Is it not interesting that Jesus called the disciples’ faith small? Notice from their statement, they did not really know Jesus. The extent of His power, His spoken Word, had not occurred to them yet.
Mankind has much knowledge, but may still be in the dark as to the power of Jesus and God’s Word. How well do you know Him? Even disciples have much to learn. Disciple of Jesus or not, I challenge you to dig into the Holy Bible to search out the truth about this Great One that even the winds and the sea obey. Any storm you experience He can handle. Let it lead you to Him.
