Cast all your anxiety on him
because he cares for you.
—1 Peter 5:7
You need faith on steroids—trust strong enough to know that while he may not always deliver you from storms, he will always be with you through storms.
The squall triggered two questions . . .
The disciples’ question was, “Don’t you care?”
Jesus’ question was, “Where is your faith?”
Calming the wind and waves was easy. Calming the disciples wasn’t. Our greatest faith struggle is within us, not around us.
It was probably Peter who shook Jesus awake and accusingly asked, “Don’t you care?”
But after a lifetime of facing ferocious storms, Peter jotted this sentence and left it for us: “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you” (1 Pt 5:7).
How many times you fall won’t ultimately define you.
How many times you get back up will.
