I walked out of a hospital recently and noticed that a helicopter was coming in for a rooftop landing, so I stopped to watch. I noticed that the pilot was being extremely cautious in his approach, and I remembered that there were strong winds blowing through the area that day. The pilot took note of the weather conditions and slowed down to ensure a safe landing.
Jesus was in a boat with his disciples when a storm came up. The disciples woke the sleeping Jesus and expressed concern for their lives. Luke 8:24-25 says, “…He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm. ‘Where is your faith?’ he asked his disciples…”
When the storms of life blow fiercely through our lives, it is easy to become fearful. In those times, we need to just slow down and put our faith in Jesus.
