The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!” When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and the raging waves. Suddenly the storm stopped and all was calm. Then he asked them, “Where is your faith?” The disciples were terrified and amazed. “Who is this man?” they asked each other. “When he gives a command, even the wind and waves obey him!” (Luke 8:24, 25 NLT)
I can just see His expression as Jesus asked His disciples this question. I think he would have a look that said, "Are you kidding me??? Do you really think I am going to just let us drown?? After all you have watched me do, you really think I can't handle this??" It's probably the same face he gives us every time we doubt him!
How many storms has he brought us through? Probably more than we can even remember, yet we still doubt him everytime something different comes up! We forget that he has saved us before! We think that he is in the back of the oat sleeping away without a care in the world about what's going on around us. But that's not true! He just wants us to have faith in him! He wants us to trust him, to know he's got it under control! I mean really, do you really think that he can calm an actual storm, like wind and waves and thunder and lightening and crazy rain, but he can't take care of whatever you have going on?? Where is you faith??
So, whatever it is that you are praying for, seeking His face and believing for, trusting him for... Don't give up! Don't loose your faith! Don't let the storm overtake you!!
This devo was written from the heart of Maggi Sellers. I know many of you are going through some pretty tough storms right now, but if God promised it to you, you will receive it! His word will not return void!!! Just don't loose faith in HIM!!!
