Thought of the Day June 28, 2022 Faith or Fear?

By 10:47 AM

 “As Jesus got into a boat, his disciples followed him. Suddenly a violent storm came up on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by waves; but he was asleep. They came and woke him, saying, ‘Lord, save us! We are perishing!’ He said to them, ‘Why are you terrified, O you of little faith?’ Then he got up, rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was great calm.”

We are like the disciples, in the midst of the various storms in our lives, we become self-focus, rather than remain focused on Jesus. Their going to Jesus was not concern for him but for themselves. Fear rather than faith was in charge. As long as Jesus is with us, nothing can separate us from him, as long as we keep our eyes and heart on him.  Whether or not he removes the personal storm of the moment is not the question. But whether  or not we place our lives in his will for us is the question. In the midst of our storms, he is with us. Learn to trust in him and remain in peace with him. Storms come and go. Jesus remains.
