Why are you afraid, O you of little faith?


little faith

The creator and sustainer of the universe has a question for you,

 And Jesus asked, “Why are you afraid, O you of little faith?” (Matthew 8:26)

It was a perfect day for sailing when the disciples and Jesus set out in their boat to go across the sea. The leisurely rocking of the skiff quickly lulled the Lord to sleep in the stern. Then in happened; calmness was replaced by an epic squall, high waves tossed the boat like a toy, as water flooded the open hull. In a panic, the disciples woke Jesus, screaming at Him, “Do you not care that we are dying? Save us!” Calmly, He arose, rebuked the storm and calmed the sea. There is often a stormy area of life where we feel Jesus cannot or will not work and so we faithlessly scream, “Don’t you care?” Yes He cares and when we truly understand who He is, we will come to realize that He controls both the storms of nature and the storms of the troubled heart. So today, when the waves of life toss you to-and-fro, faithfully take shelter in your Savior’s love and power, knowing the one who created and sustains the universe is your Lord and He will see you through.

For the whole story read Matthew 8:23-27; Mark 4:35-41
