Truth is a Person

Re:Verse passage – Matthew 8:23-27 (day four)

What are the waves that are crashing around you?  As the disciples looked around them, all they could see was the wind and the waves of the Sea of Galilee.  Their circumstances overwhelmed them…they believed that they were going to die.

Jesus’ question to them when they awoke Him was ‘where is your faith?’  The disciples had not seen Jesus’ command of the natural elements yet.  They had seen Him heal the sick and cast out the demons, but this was different.  Their practical knowledge of the sea dictated to them that they were going to drown.

We can be overwhelmed with our circumstances and fears too.  Maybe our waves are financial needs or relationships in our family or failing health…whatever they are, we are overwhelmed.  Where is our faith?  Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Light…” (John 14:6)  Ask Jesus, “What is the Truth of my circumstances?”  Don’t doubt, trust in Him in faith!

One thought on “Truth is a Person”

  1. Faith may not always change the outer circumstances of life but it should change the inner landscape of life. One thing I am certain and that is when God is present in our lives, we will have hope. We will see possibilities and that our life problems can be minimized.

    Life is full of mountains for sure! And I am convinced God is in the mountain-moving business. In life and in all circumstances, there are two paths we can choose from, the path of fear and the path of faith. Fear will paralyze us and faith definitely will strengthen us. With God in our lives, we should have no fear but should long for miracles!

    Merry Christmas!
