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." Luke 8:24-25
Who is this? They did not know who Jesus was, therefore they were amazed that He had so much power. Often we too are like the disciples, we do not realize how much power He has, and that He controls everything, therefore we need never be afraid when life challenges us. Every power of darkness that surrounds us, falls by the power of the Risen Lord. Jesus rebuked the storm, today let us turn to Him and trust Him to rebuke the storms of our lives. Let us open our hearts to the Risen Lord and surrender our situation to Him.
