40 He said to his disciples, "Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?"
Jesus is telling his disciples if you are going to follow me and go to where I send you, you're got to have to have faith. I'm never going to leave you or forsake you, I will always be with you, even when you can't see me. I'm there.. There's going to be a time when I'm asleep and you're going to have to take control. Even when you don't see me and you think that I'm no where near you, I'm here! You're going to have to be the one that steps up and takes authority. See, I believe, Jesus was waiting for one of his disciples to step up and take authority. I believe that's why, he's asking them where's your faith, don't you know yet, that you can do, what I do?
How many times in our lives have we been there where the disciples are? We think, Jesus, where are you? Are you seeing what's happening to me, are you going to stop it? When, Jesus, are you going to say enough, is enough and take control?
But the truth is, Jesus is waiting for us to use our own , God given authoirty and step up out of the boat and command for the storm in our life to be 'Quiet'! We know when we've had enough! Just say the words, and believe. "Quiet Be Still!"
Luke 10:19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the powers of the enemy; nothing will harm you.
