And when he got into the boat, his disciples followed him. And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by the waves; but he was asleep. And they went and woke him, saying, “Save us, Lord; we are perishing.” And he said to them, “Why are you afraid, O you of little faith?” Then he rose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. And the men marveled, saying, “What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey him?” Matthew 8:23-27
Jesus did not mind to be disturbed when sleeping. He minded that they came to Him filled win fears. Their fears displeased Him for they came from a lack of faith. We can pray as we want, knock at God’s door as often as we wish, we will always be welcome. Our heavenly Father showed us that He is always ready to help us. But only let us go to Him with faith and not with fears, overwhelmed by storming circumstances. We are praying the One who is sovereign on the sea as on the land.
Jesus was asleep, but He was still Lord of the entire creation and beyond.
When God seems silent, when it feels like He is blind to our sufferings, He is still God. He is watching in the night, ready to quiet not only the storms of our lives, but also the effects of those storms. He just has to say a word. And after He speaks, everything becomes calm.
