God cares. Everything that brings happiness or sorrow; joy or pain; health or illness; calm or storm, is known to God and is of concern. The beauty of it all is that our loving Father will be present to either bless us or deliver us. This quiet confidence in His Father allows Jesus to ‘sleep’ in the storm while the disciples panicked. In revealing His Father’s care, Jesus then calms the storm and invites them to have faith (Mk. 4:35-41). Today, pray for greater faith to trust in the Lord at all times, because His love and power will rescue us.
Loving Father, help us to trust in Your abiding presence at all times. May Your gift of faith empower us to walk in confidence, and save us from the storms of life. Amen.
