The reading this morning came fro Luke 8:22-25
Most men, when faced with a problem, want to fix things themselves and only turn to God as a last resort.
Quite often we think our problems are sin related and ask the question "What have I done to deserve this?". Jesus' disciples didn't do anything wrong they simply followed His instructions and they ended up in the middle of a storm.
The devil will try to distract you with all sorts of "storm" to divert you from following Jesus' instructions, but we need to have faith that He will get us through. Jesus, who knew all things, would have known that the storm would come and planned to use it to strengthen the disciples faith. We need to let Him guide us through the storms and strengthen our faith instead of trying to get out of it by our own resources.
How strong is your faith? Does it need a little strengthening? I know mine does.
