We all know the story of the storm wracked boat on the Sea of Galilee with Jesus asleep and the apostles so overwhelmed with fear of going under……this was a life threatening situation and Jesus was asleep at the bottom of the boat. They screamed his name and pleaded with him to save them.When they were desperate and faced with death they saw only him. He awoke and calmed the seas, telling them not to be afraid.
In our own little boat of life, sometimes the waters of life are calm, sometimes they are turbulent. It’s important to remember that Jesus is in that boat with us, whether everything is going along smoothly or we are in a hurricane.
Always know that the right place to go is to Jesus. He gives us the courage to face the storms of life.
You might ask yourself, Jesus being God, most likely knew there would be a storm that day and he still went with his friends. Jesus leads us into the storms because he wants us to turn to him to save ourselves.
Remember, God is only a prayer away. Is Jesus in the boat with you?
