The Lord is close to the broken-hearted, and He saves those whose spirits have been crushed.
Christians are not insulated from trouble, but they always have a port in the storm. While the winds rage, while the water threatens disaster, Jesus-Lord of the storm-is right there with us. Riding it out, or stilling it completely.
“One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s cross to the other side of the lake.” So they got into a boat and started out. As they sailed across, Jesus settled down for a nap. But soon a fierce storm came down on the lake. The boat was filling with water, and they were in real danger. The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!” When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and the raging waves. Suddenly the storm stopped and all was calm. Then he asked them, “Where is your faith?” The disciples were terrified and amazed. “Who is this man?” they asked each other. “When he gives a command, even the wind and waves obey him!”
Luke 8:22-25 NLT
When we watch the storm, we are in awe of it. When we look to Jesus, who has power over the storm, there is only confidence in Him.
