But Jesus replied, “Why are you so afraid? You surely don’t have much faith.” Then he got up and ordered the wind and the waves to calm down. And everything was calm. Matthew 8:26
So many challenges we have to face to do the will of God due to such a tenacious opposition made against us by the enemy. He would make us give up and not continue, if we did not have faith on who it was that called us. For this, we have to prepare ourselves and know our opponent, who will not stand still. At the least expected moment, he will wage war, without indulgence, so that we abort the plan of God.
But it must not surprise us; for even Jesus himself went through this on multiple occasions. Yet nothing could overcome Him because He knew who had called Him and what He had to do to not be intimidated by attacks from the evil one. Such was the case when Jesus was about to go to Gadara. A storm broke, so big that the waves covered the boat. The Disciples were terrified, and they begged Him to save them, for they were sinking.
Jesus asked them: “Why so much fear?” He could not explain how they, who knew the power of God, behaved that way. Then He gave them a teaching by giving an order to the wind and the sea, which were paralyzed instantly.
We do not have to fear these attacks. Let us just lift up our voices and order them to stop, for nothing will prevent the will that has been established by God.
