Matthew 8:23, 'Jesus entered into a ship... and behold there arose a great storm in the sea, so much that the ship was covered with the waves, but Jesus was asleep. His disciples woke Him, saying, "Lord, save us, we're going to die!" And He said, "Why are you afraid, O you of little faith!" Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea and there was a great calm. The men marvelled, and said, "What kind of Man is this?"'

The disciples thought they knew who Jesus was: they had already worked with Him for some time and witnessed some of the most amazing miracles; they were also the closest friends Jesus had. Yet something was to happen which caused them to question who Jesus really was; it was as if they had never known who He was before. Prior to working for Jesus, some of the disciples had been accomplished fishermen. They were accustomed to the waves and the wind; they knew how to safely sail a boat through stormy seas, but on this night, the storm was so great even these strong men feared for their lives, so much so, they woke Jesus for fear of drowning.

In this story in Matthew, the disciples marvelled at Jesus - they didn't realise they had this kind of Man in the boat with them! They were astonished, what kind of Man is this, He's got so much power - He doesn't just work healing miracles - but the wind and the waves obey Him! I want to tell you today, Jesus is the Lord of Heaven and earth, and He still works miracles - He is the Son of the Living God! And He's my Jesus! He's real!

'I know the greatness of the Lord - that our God is greater than any other god. The Lord does whatever pleases Him throughout all heaven and earth, and on the seas and in their depths. He causes the clouds to rise over the whole earth. He send the lightning with the rain and the releases the wind from his storehouses.' (Psalm 135:8-7)
