Where is your faith?

Luke 8:22-25
22 One day Jesus said to his disciples,
"Let's go over to the other side of the lake."
So they got into a boat and set out.

23 As they sailed, he fell asleep. A squall came down on the lake, so that the boat was being swamped, and they were in great danger.

24 The disciples went and woke him, saying,
"Master, Master, we're going to drown!"
He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters;

the storm subsided, and all was calm.

25 "Where is your faith?" He asked His disciples.
NIV

In other words,
when we are in the midst of a "storm" and we panic...
God's response is "where is your faith?"

And...
Why aren't you believing Me in this?
Have I ever let you down?
Am I not right here with you?
Do you think I would let you just go under?
I knew this storm was coming long before you experienced it.
Nothing is too hard for Me.
I love you.

Ok....I must need to spend a little more time in these verses. Our pastor preached from this same passage this morning. I haven't been to your site in quite some time since I didn't have computer access most of the summer. But I stopped by tonight and what do I see, but the very verses our pastor preached from this morning.

I will let you know what He tells me....

Thank you thank you!! Much needed this morning and the last couple of weeks. Our pastor preached yesterday on seeking God, not seeking what He can do for me. This falls in line with that and its wonderful to have a reminder.

Ah yes! I just experienced Him saying this to me a couple of weeks ago! It's amazing how life can change when you hear him say "where is your faith", let go and leave it to me"!

one sunday a ladt was talking about being a "wave-walker"

stepping out of the boat and grabbing Jesus' hand.

I loved that.

i love the songs "praise you in the Storm" and "Blessed be the Name"
