Mark 4:39
“Peace, be still!” and the wind ceased and there was a great calm.

Years ago, I was on my dad’s boat in the keys with my family having a great time fishing and boating. After about an hour, the clouds turned dark and the winds picked up and all of a sudden, a water spout appeared less than a mile from us. The spout was an amazing thing to see in real life. I was in awe of its power. That awe turned to fear, quickly, when I realized that the water spout was heading our way. The waves got rougher with the winds. The storm really came out of nowhere. We got out of there as fast as possible, and got to solid land and coverage as quickly as we could.

There are times when storms hit our lives. We get distracted, lose focus, and find ourselves in situations that consume us with fear and even hopelessness. The disciples went through that feeling when a storm came upon them in the middle of the sea. They cried out for Jesus to help them and He did. He told the storm to be still and it was. The disciples went from fear of the storm to being in awe of Jesus’ power.

Jesus is the one who calmed the storm on the Sea of Galilee and is the one who can calm any internal storm you may go through. Call to Him when those storms of uncertainty and fear feel like they are going to overwhelm you. He will calm those storms, place you on solid ground and under His wing.
