Little Faith (Matthew 8:26)

Today’s scripture: Matthew 8:26

I read these words of Jesus, and I think, “How often do I have ‘little faith’?”

Too often, I’m afraid.

It’s easy to point fingers at the disciples and say, “How can they not have faith? They saw Jesus work miracles with their own eyes!”

But, haven’t we done the same? Haven’t we seen how He’s healed? Or provided? Or protected?

We’ve seen Him work in our lives and in the lives of others.

Yet, when the rubber meets the road, we doubt. We ask why? We take our eyes off of Jesus and look at the storm.

We too have “little faith.”

What a blessing to remember that, just as Jesus calmed the storm surrounding the disciples despite their “little faith,” He will do the same for us.

When your faith is “little,” take your eyes off the storm and focus instead on the One who calms it.
