During the Storm - Part 1
THE ABSENCE OF TRUST Page
** The disciples have been through a terrifying storm that
threatened their very life. We too are open to the terrorism of our circumstances,
unless we form the practice of trusting the Lord during the storm.
What does Scripture have to say about the practice of trusting the
Lord? Lots!!! In the Psalms alone, this theme is repeated over and over.
Psalm 9:10 ...will put their trust in Thee
Psalm 25:1-2 ...in Thee I trust
Psalm 31:6 ...but I trust in the Lord
Psalm 31:14 ...as for me, I trust in Thee, O Lord
Psalm 37:3-5 Trust in the Lord...Trust also in Him
Psalm 40:4 ...man who has made the Lord his trust
Psalm 56:11 In God I have put my trust
Psalm 62:8 Trust in Him at all times, O people
Psalm 91:2 ...my God in whom I trust!
Alright then, let's go back to our passage in Matthew and bring our study

It seemed to be life threatening.
It caused them to mis-trust the Lord.
** How are the storms in your life different or maybe how are they the
** What are you going to do the next time that a storm catches you by
surprise? When you are blindsided by some terrorizing circumstance that
you do not understand, what will you do? Read Proverbs 3:5-6
