Do you know what I love about the story of the disciples who panicked in the middle of the storm and woke up Jesus from His sleep to save them only to be rebuked by Jesus for their little faith and big fear? They may have been low on faith, but they knew to run to Jesus to be saved. And even though Jesus rebuked them for their fear, He still brought calm to the storm. I have days where I am so very low on faith, but the most important thing of all is that I remember who is Lord. Jesus. And no matter how small or big my faith on a given day, my number one need is to seek the Lord. No matter how small or great the storms of my life at any given time, and no matter how small or great my faith, there is truly nothing more important than this. There is no greater love. No greater name. No greater power. No greater authority. No greater grace. No greater mercy. No greater forgiveness. No one greater. Nothing greater. Than this. Jesus is Lord. And as I have sometimes told people who are in such dire straits that they can barely utter a word, let alone function, I have told them to do this. Just say His name. Jesus. If you can do nothing else at all, do this. Say His name. Over and over. Jesus. Jesus. Jesus. For He is Lord!
“Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. 24Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. 25The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!”
26He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.
27The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”” Matthew 8:23-27 NIV
