“Then he asked them, ‘Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?’”
Mark 4:40 (NLT)
You can’t live on your last breath. It’s not good enough to eat on Monday and think that will sustain you for the month. The nature of life is process. Faith that you had in God yesterday will not uphold you in today’s trial. You must choose to put your faith in God today. The disciples were with Jesus everyday. They witnessed His miracles, heard His teachings, and experienced His love and yet in a crisis on the Lake they asked Jesus, “Teacher, don’t you care that we’re going to drown?” Is it then no wonder that we too wrestle with faith in the light of our struggles? Couldn’t Jesus ask the same of us; “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?” The good news is that our faith can grow and while we must choose faith on a daily basis, if we fellowship with Christ and experience His power, the faith we have today will be greater than it was yesterday. So take heart. Even though we doubt, even though we struggle with many of our life issues, Jesus did not give up on His disciples and He will not give up on us. Today, trust God and have faith in Him.
Father, forgive me when I have lacked faith. Help me trust You today. Help me put my faith in the love You have for me. In Jesus’ name.
