The disciples were experts at sailing, and they knew these waters well. Why then were they so frightened? How did they talk to Jesus? What did Jesus do? When bad things happen in our lives, how do we respond? Do we turn to God? What does this passage teach us about how much God cares for us and how He is more powerful than our problems?
God, when I am worried or afraid, help me to trust in You, and to have Your peace. Amen.
