Let me share a story found in Luke 8:22-25.
22 One day JESUS said to his disciples, “Let’s cross to the other side of the lake.” So they got into a boat and started out. 23 As they sailed across, Jesus settled down for a nap. But soon a fierce storm came down on the lake. The boat was filling with water, and they were in real danger.
Our SUDDENLY might be the unwanted storm in our lives or circumstances that would hit us beyond our control. Life is unpredictable and storms will come!
24 The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!”
CAUTION: Fear is the first reaction in which you and I can relate.
“…When JESUS woke up, he rebuked the wind and the raging waves. SUDDENLY the storm stopped and all was calm.”
25 Then he asked them, “Where is your faith?”
Let us check:
When I face the unwanted storms of life, am I so anxious? Do these circumstances, that hit my life beyond my control, fill me with fear? Do these paralyze my faith?
Remember, we must have faith in JESUS, the MASTER OF SUDDENLY.
“…When he gives a command, even the wind and waves obey him!”
