Sometimes I don’t give the Disciples enough credit. I mean, they were able to spend time with Jesus on a regular basis, and they saw the many miracles He performed. And yet there was still a naivety about whom He truly was and what He came to do. If I was in their shoes, I’m not sure how I might have perceived Jesus. One thing is for sure, though: they often underestimated Him. For instance, they knew He could perform miracles, but the fact that He could control the weather was outside of their comprehension. He could still a storm? What was that about? It really freaked them as it would freak and you and me, too. But Jesus taught His Disciples something very important on that day: nothing was outside of His control. That statement isn’t just true in the past tense, either. Nothing is outside of His control. See, it applies to us, too. He can still calm storms. He can still heal the sick. He is still as powerful today as He was 2000 years ago when He walked the earth. The whole world is still in His hands. When you face a storm in life, it’s not outside of Jesus’ control… just like the storm when the Disciples thought their boat would capsize. Be encouraged today to remember that truth. Even if you have abandoned Him, return to Him. The Bible says if you return to Him, then He will return to you. He is in control… still.
