Luke 8:23-24 - But as they were sailing along He fell asleep; and a fierce gale of wind descended on the lake, and they began to be swamped and to be in danger. They came to Jesus and woke Him up, saying, "Master, Master, we are perishing!" And He got up and rebuked the wind and the surging waves, and they stopped, and it became calm.
They go to Him and say, "Master, Master, we are perishing!"
In other words they are telling Him, we are all going to die. They were frightened by this storm. They were in a panic.
When Jesus is in your life you must never forget that storms are going to come and threaten you. Some storms may be so severe your thought process says, "Jesus has abandoned you."
There isn't anything further from the truth.
Once you accept Jesus into your life the devil declares war against you. He is now determined to destroy your faith. One way he does this is by trying to make you believe Jesus doesn't care about you.
Jesus not only cares about you. He died for you.
If He wants your cancer to be gone, it will be gone. The doctors may say, "We can't explain it. This x-ray shows the cancer very clearly and this one shows no cancer."
Jesus can calm the storms in your life if you will let Him.
As a Christian it will be your faith in Jesus that will get you through the storms of life.
As a Christian don't ever forget that Jesus is the one who can rebuke any storm in your life.
