Today Reminder – 02 October 2014 (Day 2 – Faith)

A reminder for today
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. (Matthew 8:26)

The winds and storms of life can leave us in fear and without faith. We can so easily be overwhelmed by a relentless enemy when he continues to throw one issue after the next on our path. We forget all about God as we stare hopelessly at the mountain of problems that lies ahead and then we turn away from God unaware that we are even doing it. You see we look at the problems and the more we fear them the bigger they get and the smaller we make God. It is in the midst of these challenges that Jesus says “Why are you afraid?” We are reminded of His love when we look up at the cross and we are confronted with our little faith when He rebukes the enemy and calms our storms.

Why do we fall in the trap of losing faith when we are clearly reminded by His greatness just by looking up at the heavens? My dear friend, do not fear and do not allow your challenges to dominate your faith. When we stand up in our storms and call His name He will come down and calm our storms. I have had so many storms in my life that He calmed so easily. Allow the Lord to fill you with His Holy Spirit and His Holy Strength and renew your faith again, then watch those waves disappear.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
