The life of Jesus. Read Today: Jesus calms a stormy sea; Matthew 8:23-27; Mark 4:36-41; Luke 8:23-25

Luke 8:25 ESV
25 He said to them, “Where is your faith?” And they were afraid, and they marveled, saying to one another, “Who then is this, that he commands even winds and water, and they obey him?”

A good question to ask I think? When Jesus said they would go across, did they have faith? Why now, is that faith gone.

It was the darkest time of the night and they were in a storm. When things come against you, they will often come in the darkest time. The storms will buffet you. And Jesus will come to you if you listen and He will say where is your faith. I told you that marriage was good, now stick it out. I told you that if you train up your child they will not depart the way, now stay with it.

We often are like the disciples, out of faith. Jesus can help us to have faith.

Read for tomorrow: Legion cast out of violent man; Matthew8:28-34; Mark 5:1-20; Luke 8:26-39
