JESUS CALMS THE STORM (Matthew 8)
23 Then Jesus got into the boat and started across the lake with his disciples.24 Suddenly, a fierce storm struck the lake, with waves breaking into the boat. But Jesus was sleeping.25 The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, "Lord, save us! We're going to drown!"
  26 Jesus responded, "Why are you afraid? You have so little faith!" Then he got up and rebuked the wind and waves, and suddenly there was a great calm.
  27 The disciples were amazed. "Who is this man?" they asked. "Even the winds and waves obey him!"

I decided to add this one again, just because it is so awesome. I believe we are constantly facing tremendous storms in our lives and we are continuously blinded by the devil in thinking that we are punished or that we must try and overcome this challenge on our own strength.
When you read this again, look at how Jesus reacts. He is angry in a way to His disciples for not believing. They had already seen that He is God and yet they were afraid. Jesus reacts instantly and rebuked the storm and suddenly all was calm.
We see Jesus do amazing things every day in our lives yet we still don’t trust Him when the next wave comes.
We must constantly fight this and have a child like faith in Jesus. He is the way the truth and the light.
He will be with you and He will calm the storms.
To God be all the glory.
