|SCRIPTURE: “He said to His disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” (Mark 4:40 NIV)|
The disciples lived with Jesus, but they underestimated Him. They did not see that His power applied to their very own situation. Jesus sits as a refiner and purifier of our lives. Each storm is like God has just turned up the heat and some new hidden impurity or selfish motives come to the surface. When we see the impurity from God’s point of view, we should confess and forsake that thing in our life by giving it to Him. When the storm hit, Jesus sat as a refiner and purifier of silver to His disciples. Jesus wanted what came to the surface to be exposed to His followers, that they might give it up to Him.
Whatever comes to the surface and is manifested, we need to let Jesus scoop it away until what people see in our storms is not us but Jesus.
