Matthew 8:26 Meditation

“But Jesus reprimanded them. “Why are you gripped with fear? Where is your faith?” Then he stood up and rebuked the storm and said, “Be still!” And instantly it became perfectly calm.” Matthew 8:26 TPT

The storm seemed to be threatening
The very life of the disciples
No doubt they knew of storm histories
That ended in people drowning
And while Jesus slept peacefully
They began fear entertaining

All our storms and troubles
Are silenced, Jesus, in your Presence
For Your authority and power
Is all we need to overcome them

Though they had seen many miracles
Seen Your authority in action
In fear the disciples cried out to You
To wake up and save them
Fear had gripped their hearts and minds
Though perfect peace was right beside them

All our storms and troubles
Are silenced, Jesus, in your Presence
For Your authority and power
Is all we need to overcome them

Jesus challenged His disciples
To remember what they’d seen
Many miracles and healings
That happened at his command
How then this lack of faith
When their well-being is challenged?

All our storms and troubles
Are silenced, Jesus, in your Presence
For Your authority and power
Is all we need to overcome them

Despite their lack of faith
Though they’d responded in fear
Jesus chose to calm the storm
With one command to the air
Demonstrating His authority
Was all they needed there

All our storms and troubles
Are silenced, Jesus, in your Presence
For Your authority and power
Is all we need to overcome them

Even though their faith failed them
Yet Jesus was still loving
He still cared for their well-being
And wanted them to know Him
So he pointed out their problem
And gave them the solution

All our storms and troubles
Are silenced, Jesus, in your Presence
For Your authority and power
Is all we need to overcome them
We see Your kindness Lord
When we are in trouble
When our fears overcome us
And faith in you is a struggle
For you are always beside us
And your words are powerful

All our storms and troubles
Are silenced, Jesus, in your Presence
For Your authority and power
Is all we need to overcome them
