Where Is Jesus in the Storm? - February 9, 2022

After Jesus walked on water through a storm, he went “up on a mountainside by himself to pray” (Matthew 14:23). He prayed even though his robe was soaked and his hair was matted. Do his actions here describe his first course of action: to pray for his followers? Romans 8:34 says, “Christ Jesus…is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.”

Ponder this promise. Jesus, right now, at this moment, in the midst of your storm, is interceding for you. The King of the universe is speaking on your behalf. You do not fight the wind and waves alone. It is not up to you to find a solution. You have the mightiest Prince and the holiest Advocate standing up for you.

Where is Jesus in your storm? He is in the presence of God, praying for you.
