Insight: “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.” (Mat 8:26)
Insight one: Do you think that whoever believes in Jesus will be flourishing, prosperous and will not encounter any suffering? Things may not be this way! It is impossible for Christians to live in this world without facing winds and waves, but please don’t forget that even the most terrifying storm, our Lord is on our boat, and He will come with us. The Lord who rules the storm is with us, so we need not be afraid wherever we are.
Insight two: Do you have faith toward the unknown future? Is it a great faith or a little faith? The Lord Jesus denounced the believers with little faith for their unbelief and incredulity over the Word of God. Great faith is simply to believe in the Word of God, to seize God’s promises, and to let God’s Word change the environment, but not to let the environment change the Word of God.
Prayer: Master of the universe, thank You for Your assurance. I don’t know how the journey will be this year. Regardless whether I will encounter external or internal storms, I will commit myself to You, because You rules over my tomorrows. Increase my faith, and I will live every day in accordance with Your Word. I pray in the precious name of the Lord Jesus. Amen!
