Jesus said to them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith and confidence [in Me]?” Mark 4:40 Holy Bible, Amplified Version
The boat was sinking during a terrible storm. The disciples, who were experienced fishermen believed they were going to die. Did they not have every right to be concerned?
No, they did not.
When Jesus asked the disciples do you still, this implies that they had plenty of experience with Jesus during disasters.
Have they not learned their lessons yet?
Before you are harsh on them, reflect back on your own life. When you were a baby Christian with little experience, you were expected to have little faith and trust, however, as you mature in your walk with Christ your faith is expected to become stronger.
For me, whenever disaster comes my way the initial reaction is panic. It is quickly followed by crying out unto Jehovah. Then their is reflection upon His past deliverance and a thankful prayer saying with confidence I know it is in Your hands Father and I know You will help me. Thank You.
Then their is calm reassurance during the wicked storms.
We are expected to call out unto Jehovah but we are also expected to have trust in His deliverance. Joseph a son of Jehovah
