Reading: Matthew 8:23-27
“The men were amazed and asked, ‘What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!’” (v.27)
I love that feeling of amazement—of how big the GOD we serve is. He cleanses away my sins, and he made stars and planets and comets and asteroids—the universe and beyond! He made me and the little ant, each molecule, cell and atom in our bodies. By his word he made the laws of nature, and should he wish, he could make them stop their natural course—in fact, we could do it too, he enabled that in us, but only it is powered by faith.
“’… 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” (v.26).
