Lord–Even in a Storm

Focus Scripture: Luke 8:22-25 ESV

22 One day he got into a boat with his disciples, and he said to them,  
“Let us go across to the other side of the lake.” So they set out,  
23 and as they sailed he fell asleep.  
And a windstorm came down on the lake,  
and they were filling with water and were in danger.  
24 And they went and woke him, saying,  
“Master, Master, we are perishing!”  
And he awoke and rebuked the wind and the raging waves,  
and they ceased, and there was a calm.  
25 He said to them, “Where is your faith?”  
And they were afraid, and they marveled,  
saying to one another, “Who then is this,  
that he commands even winds and water, and they obey him?”

Jesus Christ is Lord of all.
He rules and reigns over heaven and earth at all times.

Where do we place our faith?

Do we believe in what we see or do we believe in His Word?
Do we rely on what we see or on what we know to be true?

When everything is falling apart around you…
When you feel as though you continually fall short of the mark…
When you are accused, rejected, or forgotten…
He is the great I AM.

He is Lord even in a storm.
He is Lord even in your failure.
He is Lord even in your weakness.

Jesus Christ is Lord of All.

He was Lord in the boat.
He was Lord on the cross.
He was Lord in the tomb.
He is Lord at the Father’s right hand.

He is the great I AM.
He was, He is, and He is to come!


He loves you and gave Himself for you.
His love isn’t dependent upon your love for Him,
because He is the only one who can love perfectly.
His love isn’t dependent upon your ability to hold it all together,
because only He can hold all things together.
His love isn’t dependent upon you being perfect,
because only He is perfect.

He loved you and laid His life down for you.
He isn’t going to let you go now.


Choose one truth from today and apply it to your heart.
Take it with you throughout the day.


I confess my temptation to listen to lies,
to doubt, to be tossed by the waves,
and to be frightened by things
I don’t understand.
Lord, help me believe what is true.

Your love is perfect.
Your ways are perfect.
Your glory is forever.

In His hands for His glory,
