Still Terrified? – Good News for June 30

30 06 2009

Matthew 8:23-27

As Jesus got into a boat, his disciples followed him. Suddenly a violent storm came up on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by waves; but he was asleep. They came and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us!  We are perishing!”

He said to them, “Why are you terrified, O you of little faith?” 

Then he got up, rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was great calm.

The men were amazed and said, “What sort of man is this, whom even the winds and the sea obey?”

The Daily Path: Just nine days ago we read Mark’s account of this stormy test of faith ( See Squalls – Mark 4:35-41). Can it be the lesson requires repeating, especially during the challenging days ahead?

Once again it feels as if Christ is talking directly to me. “Kin, how many times do I have to tell you? I’m right here with you. Stop worrying. You’re going to be okay… O you of little faith.”

Room to Chat: Lord, calm the storm within me and everyone else who is terrified. Bring us your peace.
