In this passage of God’s Word, we see Jesus’ disciples in the midst of a literal storm. Out on the lake they encounter a treacherous storm, and with Jesus sleeping, they think they’ve met their demise. They awake Jesus to have Him quickly question their faith. By taking a look at this story we can see how the disciples made it through this literal storm, and how we can make it through any storm, literal or figurative, in our lives as well.
