Matthew 8:23-27


Matthew 8:23-27


Jesus and his disciples got into a boat and before they knew it, they were in the middle of a crazy storm. Water crashed over the boat while Jesus was sound asleep. The disciples woke Jesus screaming to be saved thinking they were about to drown. Jesus said " You of little faith, why are you so afraid?" Jesus got up from where he was sleeping and told the wind and waves to stop, and they stopped. The disciples looked at each other and said "what kind of man has the wind and water obey him?!"


What storm is to me, is nothing for God. I fret, cry and lose sleep as if I don't belong to the God that created everything. It's so easy to say this when everything is going well or when it's someone else's storm, but i often find myself like the disciples. I feel that i must shout for God to move on my behalf. That I need to wake Him up as if he can't see what I'm going through. He not only sees but he is also in control. My chaos, created by me or by outside circumstances, is only an opportunity for God to show me that even the wind and waves obey Him. 


Lord my faith is not always as solid as I would like for it to be. Thank you for your grace and patience with me. Help me to remember that nothing is too hard for you. Nothing is too big for you. Amen.
