And there arose a fierce gale of wind, and the waves were breaking over the boat so much that the boat was already filling up. Mark 4:37
The disciples were caught in a fierce storm, they all believed they were going to die. When they looked at Jesus he was sleeping in the boat. What? How can Jesus not care? How can he just sleep while we are dying here?
We probably sometimes feel like the disciples in this boat. When were going through a storm in our life, we question “Where is God”? We question “How can God allow me to go through this?” But notice Jesus response
And He said to them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?” Mark 4:40
Jesus response to them was “What’s wrong with you guys, don’t you know who I AM”? We say that Jesus is our Lord and Savior, but do our actions reflect that? When life gets tough , do we panic or do we have faith knowing who Jesus is?
Jesus asked his disciples “Do you still have no faith”? The disciples have witnessed many miracles and heard the teachings of Christ directly, yet they still had doubts when the Storms of Life come rolling through
They became very much afraid and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey Him?” Mark 4:41
With just one word Jesus rebuked the Storm and everything became calm and still again. If there is any question about Jesus deity, look at what Jesus just did here. He has complete control of the entire world , even the wind and seas obey him.
Don’t lose your faith during the Storms of Life, know that Jesus is with you in that boat, and know that Jesus has the power and authority to calm that storm Amen!
