Embracing the Storm

Lent - Tuesday February 27

Matthew 8:23-27; Mark 4:35-41; Luke 8:22-25

Embracing the Storm

When this story took place, the disciples had known Jesus for a while. They had been with Him and had seen Him minister to others and perform miracles. But that night, something happened. The storm came, and they were afraid. Fear got to them. They thought they were going to drown. Then, they ran to Jesus for help, and Jesus rescued them. He spoke to the wind and waves, and they obeyed Him. Suddenly, there was calm. The disciples were amazed by Jesus’ power, and they wondered who He was.


Regardless of how long we have been walking with Jesus and how well we think we know Him, we all face storms in our lives. Instead of being afraid of them, let’s put our faith into practice, and let’s see storms as opportunities for us to be amazed by the power of God. Every storm in our lives can be an opportunity for us to get to know Him better. When we run to Him, whether during a storm or a sunny day, He shows us who He is so we can get to know Him better and deeper.


Questions for Reflection:

Think: Think about a time when you faced a storm. How did Jesus help you? What did you learn about Him during that time?


Pray: During your time with Jesus, ask Him to help you embrace the storms in your life. Ask Him to show you who He is as you seek refuge in Him.


Respond: What’s one thing you can do in the future (or right now, if you’re in the midst of a storm) to help you embrace the storms in your life? How might a storm allow God to amaze you? Could you then see it as a blessing instead of punishment or abandonment?
