Good morning.


There are times when we may feel like the disciples in the boat being swamped in the storm. The end is nigh! They wake Jesus up and He calmly quietens the storm. Jesus then asks the disciples, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith and confidence [in Me]?” (Mark 4:40 AMP)


When we face difficulties, when peace is not even on the horizon, we need to pause and answer the same question: Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith and confidence [in Me]?”


The story is told of a flight that hit some unusual turbulence, tossing the airplane side to side in strong gusts of wind. Lightning hit nearby. An eerie silence settled over the passengers. No one felt safe. Except for one small child who was preoccupied with drawing a picture of himself climbing a tree. One of the passengers noticed him and wondered how he could feel so calm, so she asked the young boy, “Aren’t you afraid?”


He just looked up from his paper for a moment, smiled, and said, “No.” “Why not?” the lady prodded, fingers gripping her seat.


“Because my dad is the pilot.


Who is the pilot of your flight?


Jesus says: "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." (John 14:27)


Have faith in the One who gives you peace.


Blessings.

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
