Then Jesus got into the boat and started across the lake with his disciples. Suddenly, a terrible storm came up, with waves breaking into the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went to him and woke him up, shouting, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” And Jesus answered, “Why are you afraid? You have so little faith!” Then he stood up and rebuked the wind and waves, and suddenly all was calm. (Mat 8:23-26 NLT)
Prayer: LORD, I understand how Your followers felt because I have felt that way. Regardless of what I feel, the truth is that You are with me, aware of every moment of my life–even when waves of trouble break in and I feel fear rising. Help me to be secure in my faith and relationship with You such that no matter what storm arises, I know I am safe with You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
