Where is Your Trust?

by Glen Elliott | series |

Jesus and his disciples are in a boat, and as a furious storm hits, fear overwhelms the disciples. The disciples, some of them experienced fishermen, trusted themselves to navigate the boat. But when the storm hits, the disciples go from self-confidence to fear – and Jesus is asleep in the back of the boat. That contrast is a picture of Jesus’ complete trust in God while his disciples are living in fear. So the disciples wake Jesus and he calms the storm. Jesus then asked them and he asks us:  “Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?” This was recorded because you and I are in a proverbial boat navigating the waters of life. Unexpected storms will hit and swamp our confidence and overwhelm our skills, knowledge and experience. We can be swamped by fear or we can choose faith. The only way through our fear is by a faith that trusts God.
