Lessons in the Storm

Jay & Heather Bean

Lead Pastor

Pastor Jay teaches on the storms we go through and how even our obedience can lead us into a storm. Where God meets us in the storm and how we see others and ourselves during the storms of life are also crucial.


Matthew 14:22-33 – Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it. Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear. But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. 33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”

2. The Lord will meet you in your storm (verse 27)

3. Storms will show you who your friends are (verse 29)

4. The Lord will show you who you are (verse 30)

5. I will praise Him in the storm (verses 31-33)
