Jesus or the Storm?

And he saith unto them, why are ye fearful, o ye of little faith?. Then he arose and rebuked the winds and the seas and there was a great calm. Matthew 8:26.

Jesus was the one speaking here to his disciples. They came to wake him up in the ship because all they could see was the storm.

The storm was raging, yes they could see the storm but Jesus was also in the ship and they could see Jesus too.

However they had a choice on which to magnify in their eyes, the storm or the presence of Jesus.

They chose the storm.

They looked at the storm that was raging and of course a stormy sea will bring in the waves which was happened so that their ship filled with water and fear filled their heart.

Jesus was with them right in the ship, they had seen him perform all manner of  miracles, his presence should be comforting and allay any fears but they choose to see the problem not the problem solver.

What do you see? The problem or the problem solver? Who do you magnify? The challenges or your maker?

The people that the bible calls  overcomers are those who see with the eyes of faith.
Rather than see and concentrate on the problem and become fearful they concentrate on what the word of God says.

1John5:4b, and this is the victory that overcometh the world even our faith.
