Trouble In His Presence

“Don’t be frightened by storms. God is with you.”

Don’t be frightened by storms. God is with you.

One day, Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s go to the other side of the lake”. Without knowing why, they got into a boat. Then a life-threatening storm came. The disciples were frightened and surprised at the same time. Here was a great storm, bad enough to take their lives. But Jesus lay quietly on the boat, sleeping!

Many of us have found ourselves in similar situations. Perhaps at one time, you were doing something you thought was important to you. Then came Jesus. But after following Him, you’ve now found yourself in what seems like a life-threatening storm. Like the disciples, you are now surprised that while you are being confronted by storms, it seems as if He is sleeping.

I’ve learned that God allows storms so He can test our faith.
