The Pilot & the Pandemonium
Morning Thought: A pilot needs to stay calm while navigating through a storm. Otherwise, his crew and passengers will be in jeopardy. Jesus knew God’s peace in the pandemonium. The storm raged and he slept. Of course, his disciples were infuriated: “Don’t you care, we’re going to drown!” But Jesus knew that he was Lord over the winds and waves. He has authority, and he even shares his authority with you. “Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” 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” (Matthew 8:24-26, NIV).
