He Cares, Do You Believe?

Jesus was in the back of the boat with his head on a pillow, and he was asleep. His disciples woke him and said, “Teacher, don’t you care that we’re about to drown?”

(Mark 4:38 CEV)

It amazes me how the disciples could ask Jesus this question when Mark clearly tells us that Jesus was in the boat with them. In fact, we later read that Jesus got up, rebuked the wind, calmed the waves and then asked His disciples a more important question, “Why were you afraid? Don’t you have any faith?” (Mark 4:40). He clearly cared, but did they have faith that He did? Trying times are an opportunity for God to prove how much He cares about us and how much we believe in Him. May He grant us faith during those times, even if it’s as small as a mustard seed.

Difficult times test our faith and prove how much God cares about us.
