God is Nearer

While Jesus was literally in the same boat as His disciples, He was unconcerned about the weather. As the all-powerful Creator, He had no fear of a storm. “He got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm” (Matt8:26). We are not all-powerful so what are we to do when the storms of life rage around us? Whether they quickly blow over or last for a long time, we can be confident in this: we are in the same boat with the One whom even the winds and the sea obey.
Heavenly Father, this life is full of uncertainty. But You have promised us Your unfailing presence. May we see You today – especially when we are tempted to panic or to do things in our own strength.
No danger can come so near that God is not nearer.
