Default Devotional

I read several verses, chapters a day and this devotional I got is a great wake up fer folks....It may apply to you now or later, but it will apply! Here are the scriptures it refers to and then excerpts from the devotional:

Matthew 8:23-27

23 Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him.

24 Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping.

25 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!”

26 He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.

27 The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”




At least four of Jesus’ disciples—Peter, Andrew, James and John—made their living as fishermen. Certainly they knew of Galilee’s infamous storms. Yet on one occasion, they panicked when a storm arose. Jesus woke from his nap, rebuked them for lacking faith and then calmed the storm. For us, storms can rise quickly as well: a dark spot shows up on an X-ray; a pink slip lands on our desk at work; a kid gets in with the wrong crowd at school; a parent dies; the stock market tanks. When these “winds” rise, remember Jesus. Trust him first—no matter how overwhelming the storm appears.
