Day 8

40 He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”
When Jesus questions His Disciples, He isn’t shaming or condemning them for their lack of faith. He is asking them a question that identifies what they are experiencing and feeling in the middle of this storm.

  1. Welcome God to come in this time and begin by expressing gratitude, praise, and worship!
  2. Like the Disciples, the Lord will sometimes bring to our attention the places of doubt, fear, resentment, and or sin that take residence in our minds and hearts. He does so not to condemn, but instead to bring to light something that He already sees in you. Take time in prayer and invite the Lord to speak to you about any places in your life that He wants to address today. 
  3. Whatever the Lord brings to your attention, be brave and process it with Him. Keep this dialogue going until the Lord brings revelation, breakthrough, or release. Take it a step further and share these findings with a trusted friend and or mentor. 
  4. In our country and throughout the world, we are experiencing very real and difficult storms. We do not know what the future holds, but the Lord can still use the storm to redirect your focus and or to bring you greater freedom, reliance, and or victory in Him. Take a moment in prayer to invite the Lord to do this work in you and in any circumstance you find yourself in. 
  5. Close this time by praying out Hebrews 4:14-16 and personalizing it to your life. For example: Therefore since I have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let me hold firmly to the faith I profess. 15 For I do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with my weaknesses, but I have one who has been tempted in every way, just as I am—yet he did not sin. 16 Let me then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that I may receive mercy and find grace to help me in my time of need. 
  1. Listen to the song, “Just As I Am,” covered by Aaron Shust. May it encourage you to bring all to Jesus, just as you are.
