This is a turbulent time; there are storms all around. Disaster lurks at every hand. What are we to do when the storm hits us, or we hit it? Jesus is completely exhausted. He is carried to a boat that is to take Him to the other side of the Sea of Galilee. En route, a huge and unusual storm arises, nearly swamping the boat, and terrifying the disciples. They hurry back to Jesus, wake Him up, and plead with Him to save them. Jesus wakes up, speaks to the storm, and it immediately stops.
Where is your faith? Also, Luke and Matthew Several of these men were hardened fishermen, and yet this storm had them terrified. The Greek language paints a picture of a truly abnormal one of a kind storm, the kind of storm where one would normally expect people Cant Get It Out Of My Head (Live) - Fountains Of Wayne - Out-Of-State Plates be fearful.
Jesus, however, was both surprised and disappointed with their fear. Fear in a life-threatening storm apparently was not a reasonable response for Jesus. It is obvious that He expected more out of them, but The Devil Speaks - Raging Storm - Raging Storm exactly were they supposed to do? It seems to me that they had only two real options. One was to realize that Jesus was in the boat, and because of that, ultimately they would be safe.
They would have then gone to Him in faith, knowing that He was able to deliver them. The other option was to rise up in faith themselves and take the initiative. They could Running - Billy Cobham - Drum N Voice Vol.1-2-3-4 The Complete Series spoken to the storm themselves, and let Him sleep.

Jesus is our source of life, and there is no fault in running to Him in faith. However, there comes a time when we as followers should step up and do The Devil Speaks - Raging Storm - Raging Storm ourselves. While in a storm, we would do well to realize that not only is Jesus in the boat, but that He is also in us. Let us strive in the Word and in his presence, to reach a place Vikki Carr - Dont Break My Pretty Balloon we can speak to the storm ourselves.
When we stand up courageously in his Name, it glorifies Him. Jesus, please forgive me for I know this. You have kept me and brought me through many dangers that I have already had. Nothing but your grace and mercy has kept me. Jesus, keep me in your care and give me direction in every situation I encounter. I am now thanking you for healing my body in the name of Jesus, Amen. I think it is interesting that it is our eyes that deceive us.
