“He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!’” Matthew 8:26. What do we do when we are stuck in a troubling situation with nowhere to run? Maybe, like the disciples who were stuck in a life-threatening storm, we run to Jesus. Sometimes, however, we may try to bail ourselves out of trouble by seeking revenge, slandering the one who has caused our problem, or just cowering fearfully in the corner as we sink into despair. We need to learn from the disciples who fled to Jesus as their only hope. He may not bail us out immediately, but remembering that He is in our boat makes a difference. Look for Him in your storm and let Him fill you with the peace that comes from knowing He is near. Make Jesus your first option when the storms of life threaten you.
