Scripture of the Day: Matthew 8:23-27

Jesus got into a boat, and his followers went with him. A great storm arose on the lake so that waves covered the boat, but Jesus was sleeping. His followers went to him and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We will drown!” Jesus answered, “Why are you afraid? You don’t have enough faith.” Then Jesus got up and gave a command to the wind and the waves, and it became completely calm. The men were amazed and said, “What kind of man is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”

Matthew 8:23-27 NCV

We only panic when our faith is low. Faith keeps us calm, because we are trusting that God is faithful and that He is in control, not us.

How are you handling the storms in your life?

What does that say about the true condition of your faith?
