Where is YOUR faith?
Jesus said to His followers, “Where is your faith?” The followers were afraid and amazed and said to each other, “Who is this that commands even the wind and the water, and they obey Him?”--------Luke 8:25
Jesus and His disciples were in a boat crossing over to the other side of the lake, the Sea of Galilee, to a less in-habited area when a sudden, very strong wind blew up on the lake, while Jesus was asleep, causing the boat to fill with water, and to the disciples they were in danger.
So they went and woke Jesus up saying to Him, “Master! Master! We’re going to die!” So Jesus got up and gave a command to the wind and waves and immediately they stopped and it became calm. Then Jesus said to His disciples, “WHERE IS YOUR FAITH?” The followers were afraid and amazed and said to each other, “Who is this that commands even the wind and the water, and they obey Him?”
Sometimes the circumstances in our life seems like the winds and waves that come up QUICKLY and FEROCISOULY on the Sea of Galilee. And our life is like the little boat being slapped around by the wind and waves of adversity and we began to take on water and are beginning to sink, with the feeling of death approaching.
Jesus was in the boat with the disciples and had told them that they would be crossing over to the other side of the lake, but FEAR gripped their hearts and their FAITH was faltering. They weren’t THINKING clearly, otherwise they would have had FAITH in knowing that the MASTER of the SEA was riding with them.
We, like the disciples, let FEAR take control of our situations instead of having FAITH that the ALMIGHTY GOD is in CONTROL and we can put our FAITH and TRUST in Him. He tells us that when we are WEAK, He is STRONG. As a Child of God we need to have a STRONG FAITH in Him, but sometimes He says to us, “My child, WHERE IS YOUR FAITH?”
We are living in PERILOUS times and we NEED a STRONG, ABIDING FAITH, our FAITH grows stronger when we put our TRUST in the ONLY one who can change things.
If you have not given your HEART and LIFE to God, then, “WHERE IS YOUR FAITH?” You don’t need to drown in your circumstances and sinful situations. You can come to the MASTER of YOUR SEA and be SAVED from certain death and destruction of your soul, by: CONFESSING your sins to God and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you then, ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and put your FAITH and TRUST in Him. Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He’s waiting!!!
