In Matthew 8:26 (NIV) Jesus is resting with his friends in a fishing boat when a storm comes crashing through. His friends panic, waking him from his sleep. Jesus responds by saying “...You of little faith, why were you so afraid?” He calms the waves in an instant.


What if Jesus gave you that correction today? What is often at the heart of every offense, every risk not taken, every moment of confusion? Is it fear? Fear of not making the right choice? Fear of what someone may think? Fear that something said about us may be true? Fear that we failed? Fear of not being in control? fear of inconvenience or discomfort? Fear of rejection?


2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV says “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” What if we look at the choices we are facing, reflect on the choices we have already made, and picture Jesus in the flesh asking us, “Why were you so afraid?” Could we stand just a little taller? Move forward just a little braver? Rest just a little easier if we remember Jesus controls the waves?

Lord,

When we glance out and all that is around us looks bare and empty, when the wind has caused our branches to break and fall, when the sun can not be met within the scope of what our eyes can see, and the air seems cold and silent, help us look closer. Closer to where we see the green of life deep beneath the bark, closer to see the breaks within the surface where new buds are forming, closer to hear the peace within the silence where your sovereign hand guides us, closer to the heart of You. Thank you Lord, that even in the silence, You never let us leave your grasp. I pray we always feel the comfort of Your arms, the warmth of Your embrace and the safety of Your love. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
