"Now it happened, on a certain day, that He got into a boat with His disciples. And He said to them, "Let us cross over to the other side of the lake." And they launched out. But as they sailed He fell asleep. And a windstorm came down on the lake, and they were filling [with water], and were in jeopardy. And they came to Him and awoke Him, saying, "Master, Master, we are perishing!" Then He arose and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water. And they ceased, and there was a calm. But He said to them, "Where is your faith?" And they were afraid, and marveled, saying to one another, "Who can this be? For He commands even the winds and water, and they obey Him!"
It is amazing how often I forget the power of our King.
Here Christ tells his disciples "let us go cross the lake". He knows the troubles that lie ahead and yet He led them there. Upon their following his command, they later find themselves in an (from human perspective) alarming situation. They immediately forget that they were directed to that place by their Lord, as well as all of the miracles they had witnessed Him perform. They panic, fret, and fear. Upon Christ's awaking, He calms this seemingly huge problem.
Why do we as Christians, so quickly jump to panic, concern...angst?
I strive to follow His leadings. To step where He directs. Today, I believe that I am in His will. I believe I am where He wants me to be, doing what He wants me to do. He guided me to this lake...He told me to cross.
A storm arises, and my vessel begins to fill with water. Reaction comes in thoughts of "I am finished, I shall perish!", but, I know better...deep down I know better.
My Lord is here with me! He is here!!! All is well!
