‘The disciples were absolutely terrified. “Who is this man?” they asked each other. “Even the wind and waves obey him!”’ (Mark 4:41 NLT).


The disciples were afraid of the storm outside the boat until they awoke Jesus. Then, they feared the One inside the boat. We say that we believe and trust Jesus fully. Yet when life’s storms come, we discover the true measure of our faith. The disciples thought they knew the size of Jesus’ power, but it took a terrifying tempest to enlarge their understanding.
PRAYER: Dear Father, teach us to trust You when life’s storms come. We lift our eyes to You rather than focusing on the storm. For we have learned that You are greater than the wind or the whirlwind. You are bigger than anything that comes against us. For You alone are God. In Jesus name, Amen.
