All of us experience powerful storms in our lives. In those dark moments, Jesus is there, He cares. It may feel like you are all alone, but Jesus is in the boat with you: even though you may not be able to see Him, His voice will speak peace to the wind, calming the waves buffeting you.
“Jesus, help me!” - God hears the cries of the desperate and anguished. So many people are in the same position as Jairus: “Jesus, it is too late; my daughter has died.” But it is never too late with Jesus. No situation is too far gone; no person too lost, that the power of God cannot reach and save.
“Lord, don’t You care about us?” Facing a life-threatening storm, the disciples were just like us; although they did the right thing by going straight to Jesus, the problem was, Jesus was asleep! Yet God does care! He knows our circumstances. He’s acquainted with all our ways. You are fully know and loved by God.
