Rest in the Storm
Take a moment to refresh, refocus, and refine your faith.
God, when everything feels out of control, you remind me that I can rest in the storm. You will speak peace into being when the time is right. You are sovereign over all things; I can find courage and comfort in that. No matter how wild circumstances rage around me, your loving command to worry and be anxious about nothing remains. You, Lord, are true and good. Thank you for giving my life a firm footing while the world shakes around me. Amen.
One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side of the lake.” So they got into a boat and set out. 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. 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. “Where is your faith?” he asked his disciples. In fear and amazement they asked one another, “Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him.”
