Beloved, the disciples were experienced fisherman encountering a storm different from any other they had ever faced. The spiritual corollary is the storms of life or trials. Everyone experiences the winds of adversity, the waves of worry, the darkness of isolation, and the fear that accompanies the storm.
So what are we to do when a storm hits? James said to count it all joy when you fall into various trials (James 1:2). Trials can be big or small; emotional, physical or spiritual; brief or enduring. What we learn today is that we can navigate these storms and have peace in the midst of them because Jesus is with us!
Remember, to make certain that Jesus is in the boat with you!
