The sudden storm overwhelmed the disciples. In their panic, they cried out to Jesus, not with faith and God-confidence, but with doubt and fear, questioning Jesus’ care for them. Isn’t that what many of us do when overwhelmed? How could God allow this to happen, we cry. Jesus’ immediate action reveals that He does care, not only about the storm that threatens them but about the fear that holds them captive. Where do you need to trust that Jesus cares about everything that concerns you?
A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”—Mark 4:37-38
Prayer: Jesus, thank You for caring about all that concerns me. Let me call out to You with faith and God-confidence, knowing that You are present and that You hear my call. Amen.
