Storms can be scary and destructive. Hot/cold air collisions and seasonal change can produce some nasty weather. In our personal life, it’s also true that changing winds can bring a storm. In the Gospels, there’s a pivotal moment where the disciples sailed into rough seas while Jesus slept; and they were petrified. From their perspective, the crashing waves would rip their boat apart at any moment…but then Jesus spoke:
“Peace, be still!” – Mark 4:39a NKJV
Instantly there was calm…astonishment…gratitude…worship…bewilderment and a deep realization of the powerful presence of ALMIGHTY GOD!
Do you see dark clouds forming on the horizon of your life today? Perhaps you’re already in the midst of a raging storm and your boat is battered and taking on water. He alone can speak calm into your soul. The disciples admitted their fear. They even questioned His concern for their safety, but they were never in real danger because Jesus was in the boat. Is He in your life today? If so, He’s near. Call out to Him and listen for His powerful words of peace…
