Calming Your Storm

Mark 4:36-41

36 Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him. 37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. 38 But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?” 39 Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. 40 But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?” 41 And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!”

How many storms have you been in?  How many times did you feel alone?  The disciples were in the boat with Jesus and their faith was still in question.  They felt that Jesus did not care so they woke Him up.  They were so focused upon their storm they did not realize others were in the storm.  Verse 36 tells of other little boats.

They wanted Jesus to calm the storm and He will calm yours, but you have to call out to Him in prayer.  Your storm may be in one of the following ships: relationship, worship, stewardship, friendship, fellowship, or discipleship.  Call out to Him and trust His guidance and direction.  His love for you is always there so put your focus upon Him and not the storm.

Know and trust that when He calms your storm that He may also calm others that are in the storm. Your testimony that you share later may give courage to all you share His love with.

Psalm 107:29

He calms the storm, So that its waves are still.
