As the storm raged around the disciples their faith began to waiver. When they thought their lives were in danger they came to Jesus but they didn’t acknowledge Him as their Lord or Master but instead approached him as “teacher.” Often times in our own lives we face scary situations just like those disciples. We start to believe the lie that God isn’t who He says He is. Thankfully, even though the disciples lacked faith, Jesus still showed up for them and calmed the wind and the rain! Even when we doubt God is there for us.
Jesus was sleeping at the back of the boat with his head on a cushion. The disciples woke him up, shouting, “Teacher, don’t you care that we’re going to drown?”
~ Mark 4:38 [NLT]
