Delivered from Fear

Matthew 8:23-27 NLT
Jesus Calms the Storm
23 Then Jesus got into the boat and started across the lake with his disciples.
24 Suddenly, a fierce storm struck the lake, with waves breaking into the boat. But Jesus was sleeping.
25 The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!”
26 Jesus responded, “Why are you afraid? You have so little faith!” Then he got up and rebuked the wind and waves, and suddenly there was a great calm.
27 The disciples were amazed. “Who is this man?” they asked. “Even the winds and waves obey him!”
How can we operate from a place of faith instead of fear?
What does the disciples' reactions teach us about how to handle our own fears?
Why is prayer an important tool for the believer when facing fear?
What emotions do we face when we face STORMS in our life?
The disciples were in this huge storm in a small boat, and they thought they were going to be killed. Jesus was just sleeping in the back of the boat, seemingly oblivious to the desperate circumstances. So often, as we find ourselves in the middle of danger, it seems like the Lord is sleeping. “God, why don’t You help us? We are sinking fast, and You are not doing anything! Don’t You care, Lord?” But God responds, “O you of little faith!” He knows all about our problems, and He plans to deal with them in His way. When Jesus is on board, you can’t sink. That is why it is so important to have Jesus on board. “Even the winds and the sea obey Him.” Everything else does, too.
