Where is your faith?

On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.” Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him. And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?” Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?” And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!” (Mark 4:35-41 NKJV)

Ever had that happen to you? Been working, minding your own business, doing your job and suddenly from out of nowhere a huge storm materializes. You are being tossed back and forth and you aren’t sure you can make it to the end of a day let along to the other side. You try to power through with your own strength and the boat just seems to keep sinking. Finally, you go to Jesus and say, “Why is this happening to me? Don’t you care about me?” After the storm passes, you look back and realize that Jesus was in it with you all along. And you remember that your life is good because Jesus is the master of storms. At least…until the next gale force wind begins to blow……
