|SCRIPTURE: “Then He got into the boat and His disciples followed Him. Without warning, a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke Him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown! “(Matthew 8:23-25 NIV)|
As a perfect teacher, He teaches first, then He tests. If we do not do our homework, we will not be prepared for the test; if we fail the test, we will have to take it again. Storms do help us organized our priorities. If we are going to sail with Jesus, we have to decide if we are asking Jesus to help us build our Kingdom or we are building His. We often encounter storms in our life, where we feel God can’t work. When we truly understand who God is, however, we will realize that He controls both the storms of nature and the storms of the troubled heart. Jesus’s power that calmed this storm can also help us deal with problems we face. Jesus is willing to help if we only ask Him. We should never discount His power in terrible trials.
