Never discount the power of Christ

We should never discount the power of Jesus Christ.
The disciples had already witnessed first hand the many miracles that Jesus had performed on people.
But when they were out at sea, 

Without warning a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat.
But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying, 

"Lord, save us! We're going to drown!"
He replied, "You of little faith, why are you so afraid?"
Then he got up and rebuked the winds and waves and it was completely calm.
-Matthew 8:24

We often find ourselves in stormy weather either physically or emotionally where we feel God can't or won't work.
But when we truly understand who God is, we realize that he controls both the storms of nature and the storms of the troubled heart. Jesus' power that calmed this storm can also help us deal with every problem we face. Jesus is ready and willing to help us if we only ask him! We should never discount his power even in terrible trials.
