Even the Storms are for a Reason with Jesus
Matthew 8:23-27 Jesus through a Storm – Do We Trust Jesus when the Storms around us seem fierce?
The disciples are the closest people on earth to Jesus. They are His inner circle. They likely think they understand who Jesus is and why they follow Him. Yet, when Satan throws fierce opposition at them, their lack of comprehension comes to the surface. By the end of the storm on the Sea of Galilee, they are forced to examine their own beliefs and confront the question of “Who is this man?” He is so much more than they believed Him to be before the storm.
Jesus uses the storms of life to dredge up the doubts, fears and areas of mistrust in our walk with Him. He is always seeking to help us to know Him better so that even in the fiercest storm, we can rest…just like He did.
