The Calm in the Storm

“Jesus responded, “Why are you afraid? You have so little faith!” Then he got up and rebuked the wind and waves, and suddenly there was a great calm.” Matthew 8:23-27, NLT

When Jesus was out at sea with the disciples, a storm had approached and quickly gotten out of hand. As you can imagine, the disciples panicked. As they scurried around the boat, I imagine they looked at each other in confusion wondering where Jesus was. As we know, He was sleeping. Imagine, a boat being tossed among the waves, thrown around the sea like a child submerging a toy boat in water, and our Savior was peacefully asleep.

Sometimes we run around frantic during the storms of our lives and wonder where Jesus is? Just as the disciples, we feel as though He is sound asleep, leaving us to tend to the waves and wind alone. However, we must understand Jesus was not sleeping because He was idle or lacking. He was asleep because He is immovable by any opposition of the enemy. He is at peace because He is in control even when our situation looks out of control.

When life’s waves are coming at you from every direction, and it feels like Jesus is sound asleep, that’s when you receive the peace of God. That peace that surpasses all understanding comes from knowing that no matter the opposition, God is in control and He will see you through. Jesus is not pacing the floors of heaven wondering what to do or how He is going to deliver you. He at peace regarding you because He has you in the palm of His hand.

Let Him quiet your soul as you listen to your Father saying, “Daughter, the waves and wind are under the control of my voice. I will not let them overtake you. Fix your eyes on Me, and remain steadfast in your faith. The waters seem high, but I will not let you drown.”

Prayer: Father, I thank you for bringing peace to my soul. Quiet my mind, Lord, and strengthen me. The waves seem high and it seems there is no way out, but I know that you are with me. You already have made a way for me. You are my God, my redeemer, my savior and I praise Your mighty name. Help me open my mouth and speak to the storm raging around me and command peace to be still. In Jesus name, Amen.

(Read Psalm 121:3; Psalm 91:11; Luke 17:6)
