Of what are you sometimes afraid? Are there some things that bring you fear and rob you of courage? Jesus’ friends also had some fears.
In Matthew’s gospel at chapter 8 and verse 26 he records the words of Jesus, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?”
He said this to his disciples as they were on a boat in the middle of the sea, being tossed around by the wind in a furious storm. The answer seems obvious, “We’re about to drown here!” Jesus seems to be looking deeper, though.
He points to their lack of faith as the source of their fear. Faith is an active trust in someone. The disciples had a less than great trust in Jesus or they wouldn’t have been so fearful of the storm.
In whom do you have an active trust? The disciples had a less than great trust in Jesus or they wouldn’t have been so fearful of the storm. Who do you trust when your team is in turmoil and nothing is working?
Continue to build your trust for your coaches and for your teammates. They’re committed to you. Even more so, build your trust for the Lord Jesus. He will care for you on your worst day when you’re overcome with fear. Actively trust the Lord with today’s competition. He’s worthy of your faith.
