“But as they sailed He fell asleep. And a windstorm came down on the lake, and they were filling with water, and were in jeopardy. And they came to Him and awoke Him, saying, “Master, Master, we are perishing!”…….
Then He arose and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water. And they ceased, and there was a calm. But He said to them, “Where is your faith?”
And they were afraid, and marveled, saying to one another, “Who can this be? For He commands even the winds and water, and they obey Him!”” Luke 8:23-25
What happens when Jesus’ disciples wake Him on the boat petrified they will die because of the storm and He calms the storm? He asks where their faith is, they’re scared, and they ask WHO JESUS IS! How can they dare not know it’s Jesus who calmed the storm miraculously? Despite their sudden and temporary lapse in faith, Jesus still loves them, cares about them, and continues to be their Lord and master and to disciple them! Sometimes we have our own lapse in faith and temporarily don’t recognize the glory and miraculous nature and manifestations of Jesus in our lives. What a blessing He still loves us who follow Him, and still cares about us, and is our Lord and master and disciples us as His Spirit leads us forth! How loving, patient, yes, long-suffering, kind, gracious, generous, sensitive, tender, Fatherly, giving, doting, sweet, and lovely and wonderful the Lord is with His children! Oh, blessed, blessed, blessed be the Lord! Oh, how indescribably blessed we are when we are wholly HIS!
