The Wind Ceased

Matthew 14:31-32  And immediately Jesus stretched forth His hand and caught him and said unto him, “O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?” And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.

These words from Jesus are comforting. He exhorts us to have more than little faith. He wants us to believe that He is the Savior, the ruler of the boisterous winds of life. He would have us show great faith and march boldly forward, even upon the storm tossed waves of the sea.

But He is also gracious and kind. He knows our frame. So, while He bids us to grow up into a mature and trusting faith, He is willing to reach out to us and save us in our hour of need, even when we are distracted and our faith wains. When Jesus does this, the wind that assails you shall cease.
