“And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side. And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships. And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith” (Mark 4:35-40)?
Today’s Morsel: Shouldn’t the disciple’s faith have been running off the charts? Why do I say that? Scripture tells us, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God… And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth” (John 1:1, 14). If faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17); and Jesus is both God and the word, what and who were the disciple’s listening to? If you lose faith during your storm, you may have a Jesus deficiency.
Sing: Faith can move mountains, mountains of fear and of doubt. Faith can move mountains, so why don’t you try your faith out.
Thought For Today: If you lose faith during your storm, you may have a Jesus deficiency (Parker).
