Where Is Jesus When I Need Him?


Sometimes in storms, He’ll show up in amazing ways,,,so trust Him even when it seems He’s far away.

“And lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20, NKJV).

Have you ever faced a storm in your life and the frustration was multiplied because it did not seem that Jesus was there for you? The disciples faced this very situation. Jesus told them to take their boat to sea while He stayed behind to pray. Suddenly, a powerful storm came up. The terrified disciples faced it for several hours before Jesus, making a pretty dramatic entrance, showed up to comfort them. So why didn’t Jesus come to them right away?

Well, think about it this way. When we are going through storms, it’s human nature for us to have the mind-set that I’ve just got to work this out by myself! The disciples knew that Jesus was on land and probably assumed there really wasn’t anything He could do anyway. But Christ was praying on the shore, and He knew the exact location and needs of His disciples. You should realize that Jesus is watching over you in the midst of your storm as well.

Know this: the storms of life will unsettle us—even terrify us, but there is no storm in life stronger than Jesus. He is watching over you always. And sometimes in storms, He’ll show up in amazing ways, so trust Him even when it seems He’s far away.
