On that day, as evening drew on, Jesus said to his disciples: “Let us cross to the other side.” Leaving the crowd, they took Jesus with them in the oat just as he was. And other boats were with him. A violent squall came up and waves were breaking over the boat, so that it was already filling up. Jesus was in the stern, asleep on a cushion. They woke him and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” He woke up, rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Quiet! Be still!” The wind ceased and there was great calm. Then he asked them, “Why are you terrified? Do you not yet have faith?” They were filled with great awe and said to one another, “Who then is this whom even wind and sea obey?”
When we allow it, Jesus will calm the storms in our life. He causes the wind and sea to obey, why do we think He cannot calm our storms? Trust in Him and your life will not be storm free, but you will have the strength and power to withstand them.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for the storms you have quieted in my life. You have taken away my fear and replaced it with trust in you. In Jesus’ holy name I praise you, Amen!
Give thanks to the Lord, his love is everlasting, Alleluia!
