Fearless in Faith

  In my desire to follow Jesus and walk like He did I am noticing His actions in Matthew 8:23-27 today. It says:

  "When He got into the boat, His disciples followed Him. And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being covered with the waves; but Jesus Himself was asleep. And they came to Him and woke Him, saying, "Save us, Lord; we are perishing! He said to them, "Why are you afraid, you men of little faith? Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and it became perfectly calm. The men were amazed and said, "What kind of a man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?"

  So often in our lives we are faced with various circumstances that leave us worried and afraid and often instead of giving our fears or worries to God we lay awake at night or in some way get all worked up. Jesus did I admit have an advantage where He was able to take care of the fearful situation but we, though we might not be able to take care of each situation ourselves, have Someone (God the Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit) who is watching out for us every single moment of our lives and He can take care of every situation.

  Jesus admonished the disciples to have faith! We can learn from Jesus how to not worry but have Faith as well.

   We can be fearless because we have faith in One who can do anything!

What are your thoughts on these verses?
