Re:Verse passage – Matthew 8:23-27 (day two)
And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being covered with the waves; but Jesus Himself was asleep. vs. 24
Jesus was with his disciples…and the storm came anyway. Many of his disciples were well acquainted with the water, and many made their living from fishing…and the storm scared them. We should not think that we are any different than the disciples. Storms will come, and often in the areas where we should be most prepared. Don’t think that a life lived following Jesus will mean one that is free from conflict, pain, or suffering. Is that where you find yourself right now? Take comfort from the disciples next actions. They ran to Jesus. He had a word of rebuke for allowing the storms to shake their faith, but he cared for them. He quieted them, and the storm. Let him be your peace in the storm today.
