Who of us would not be terrified to be in a small boat as it fills with water in the midst of a frightening storm? The disciples at this point were not really understanding that the Creator of the Universe was actually sleeping in that boat! How often when the storm hits, we, like the disciples, let the storm control us rather than letting Jesus control the storm. We trust Jesus to save us from our sins but don't trust Him to control the circumstances in our lives.
1. Do you submit to God's leading during the storms in your life?
2. Do you realize you have the choice to let God work?
Challenge: Recognizing that Jesus is in the boat during your personal storm is the first step in giving over control to Him. Do what you can, then give it over to Jesus.
