Storm Calming

The apostles were with Jesus in a boat  on the sea when a terrible storm arose. These men were fishermen and yet the tempest scared them so badly they woke Jesus in extreme fear for their lives. Now Jesus was perfectly at peace and sound asleep. The boat must have been rolling and bouncing crazily, yet in His exhaustion He slept.

Matthew 8:23-27 NIV
Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him.
24 Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake,
so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping.
25 The disciples went and woke him, saying,
“Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!”

26 He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?”
Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves,
and it was completely calm.
27 The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this?
Even the winds and the waves obey him!”

Laying in bed in the dark hours of the night, and the enemy attacks with fear filled thoughts. Does it keep me awake? Do I feel the need to ‘wake’ Jesus, or do I calmly just turn the issues over to Him and fall back into deep slumber? If He can calm the violent storm on the sea, then surely I can trust Him to calm any storm in my mind and take care of any challenging issue I have.

I know this in my heart, but occasionally the enemy blows its evil breath into my thought world when I’m least expecting it. Truthfully, at times he can get me going until I remember Whose I am. But my Father God told me several months back that He would "take care of me.”

Since I serve a big, glorious, commanding God and I am under His specific care, how can anything bring harm to me when He covers me? For His care is full measure. He is true to His Word always whether it is Biblical or spoken. I can always count on Him to do what He says.

Does the enemy ever come at you in vulnerable times? Do you remember God's promises? Have you turned your fears over to God?

When was the last time  the enemy tried to capture you with fear in the dark hours of the night?
