But He said to them, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?”
then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm.
Matthew 8:26
A frightening storm rose quickly on the Sea of Galilee, and the disciples are afraid. Because of their limited faith, they feared for their lives. When they turned to Jesus, He calmed the waters and he rebuked His disciples for their lack of faith in Him. On occasion, we, like the disciples, are frightened by the inevitable storms of life. Why are we afraid? Because we, like the disciples, possesses imperfect faith. When we genuinely accept God’s promises as absolute truth, when we trust Him with life here on earth and life eternal, we have little to fear. Faith in God is the antidote to worry. Faith in God is the foundation of courage and the source of power. Today, let us trust God more completely and, by doing so, move beyond our fears to a place of abundance, assurance, and peace.  
Fear lurks in the shadows of every area of life. The future may look very threatening.
Jesus says, “Stop being afraid. Trust me!”
Charles Swindoll.

2 Comments on “Beyond our Fears

  1. (Edited for clarity sake – Ed.) Most churches think “Process” instead of “Purpose” and most churches don’t assess their processes in the light of “purpose”. When we start getting intentional about linking processes with the purpose (the Great Commission), our churches will do better. Coach Theresa
