Preach Jesus: Jesus & the Miracles of Hope

Calming the Storm

Matthew 8:23-27, Mark 4:35-41, Luke 8:22-25


How do you Ride the Storm?


#1—Recognize there is More in the Storm; THAN THE STORM

Matthew 8:24a, “Suddenly, a fierce storm struck the lake, with waves breaking into the boat.” 


#2—Realize the Storm is not only around you; IT IS IN YOU

Luke 8:25,“The disciples were terrified…” 

Mark 4:38b, “…The disciples woke him up shouting, ‘Teacher, don’t you care that we’re going to drown?” 

Psalms 89:8-9 “O Lord God of Heaven’s Armies! Where is there anyone as mighty as you, O Lord? You are entirely faithful. You rule the oceans. You subdue their storm-tossed waves.”


#3—Believe there is more for you through the Storm; than WITHOUT THE STORM
  • Jesus sent them into it.

  • Jesus went with them into it.

  • Jesus showed them how to go through storms with confidence.

    Matthew 8:26, “Jesus responded, “Why are you afraid? You have so little faith!” 


#4—Jesus is bigger THAN ANY STORM

Matthew 8:26-27, “Jesus responded, ‘Why are you afraid? You have so little faith!’ Then he got up and rebuked the wind and waves, and suddenly there was a great calm. The disciples were amazed. ‘Who is this man?’ they asked. ‘Even the winds and waves obey him!’” 


“…suddenly there was a great calm…” 

Philippians 4:6-7, “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”
