When Jesus was in the Sea of Galilee, with his disciples, he decided to take them over to the other side, now in this area of where they were, storms can rise up at any moment. The sea is many miles long, and many miles wide, so it wasn’t just going to be an easy trip to get to the other side, never mind having a storm come through, never mind one that was pouring water into the boat. Have you ever wondered why in Luke, 8:22-25, that experienced fisherman, people who are well versed in this area, and have been fishing on these waters for many years would get so scared so quickly. Luke 8:24, They came to Jesus, and Woke Him up, saying Master, Master, we are perishing,” and He (Jesus) got up, and rebuked the wind and the surging waves, and they stopped. 26, and He said to them Where is your faith? I want to ask you today, where is your faith? is your faith in money? is it in your job? is it in your family?, is it in your country, where is your faith? Why do we put our faith in these things, and not put it were it truly should be which is in God. Why do we put it in things, that may be their one day, and be gone the next. Do we put it in humans, thinking that they will not fail us, they will not let us down, they will not make a mistake, but yet, because we are of a fallen nature we will let people down at some point in our lives, but God won’t.
John 14:12 Truly, Truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me the works he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the father. Jesus tells us that we will do greater works than he did, so why don’t we see that. Jesus tells us that tell that mountain to move, and it will move, Jesus calmed the storm, but yet when we pray the storm doesn’t cease, are we doubting ourselves in what God wants us to do. Jesus did many miraculous sings and wonders while He was here on earth, and we want to see those things happen here today, and many times they do in other countries and on occasion in ours. are healed, people are cured of cancer, people are brought back to life, but we wonder why we don’t see it more often. Is it possible, that we put more of our faith in doctor’s and hospitals, and medicines, than we do in God. Now I am not saying that we shouldn’t go to doctor’s, or hospitals, or take medicines, please don’t misunderstand me. I have been blessed by the way God used doctor’s to help me out, by the way God gave them wisdom in how to help me, but my point being is doctor’s are not always the final answer, God is. Although I have been blessed by doctor’s, I have also prayed, and been healed of certain health situations in my life, I not only ask you this question, but I also ask it of myself, Where is our Faith?
