Calm in the Storm

April 2

Daily Bible Reading: Luke 8:22 – 56

Verse of the Day: Luke 8:24 – “And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master, we perish. And he awoke, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm.”

Storms. They are so unpredictable. They can crop up in a moment. They can be violent or not so much. They all have one thing in common; they can be very disturbing and troublesome.

Sometimes, the storms of our life can be so overwhelming that we feel that we are in a sinking boat. We face some storms that may shake our faith in whether God is really concerned with us. Does He really care?

In our passage today, the disciples had Jesus in the boat in the storm with them, and they are terrified by the storm. They wake Him and accuse Him of not caring. Yet, remember that He was in the same boat in the same storm, and He would see them through. He will see you through also.

Prayer: Jesus, strengthen my trust in You.
