Matthew 8:23-27 NIV

Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. (24) Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. (25) The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” (26) He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. (27) The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”


1.“Why are you so afraid - delicate - shrinking back? 


2.“You of little faith”

Matthew 17:20 NIV

He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”


2 Timothy 1:6-7 CSB

"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but one of power, love, and sound judgment".


Psalm 51:10 NIV

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.


 Colossians 3:8-10 CEB

But now set aside these things, such as anger, rage, malice, slander, and obscene language. (9) Don’t lie to each other. Take off the old human nature with its practices (10) and put on the new nature, which is renewed in knowledge by conforming to the image of the one who created it.


Hebrews 10:38-39 CEB

but my righteous one will live by faith, and my whole being won’t be pleased with anyone who shrinks back. (39) But we aren’t the sort of people who timidly draw back and end up being destroyed. We’re the sort of people who have faith so that our whole beings are preserved.

2.Power of the Holy Spirit - inside us

3.Power of a renewed mind
